Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed here for a week in July 2012. We rented the downstairs villa with access to the spa. With 3 young children, we were looking for somewhere where we could have easy access to Menaggio and surrounds and this was perfect. The bikes mean't we could make the easy ride into Menaggio saving us from driving as it was too far to walk with the kids. The villa is brand new, modern and very comfortable. The view was just amazing. Stunning. The agents were also very helpful. A holiday to remember.

Tom's party of 16

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place all the way around. We rented the main floor as well as the penthouse in Mid Sept last year. The personal service from Louise as well as the owner was outstanding. We were able to get a local deli with excellent food to bring over food and wine the night we arrived --outstanding!!

It is only a 5 minute walk to the city center ( Menaggio and ferry). Golf is about a 10 minute car ride. Great restaurants within 5-10 minutes.

Every day we would get fresh veggies and fruit and bring back to the fully loaded kitchens. At night we set out by the hot tub and look at the beautifyl Swiss Alps and drink great local wines. What a great place!! My wife and friends want to return again to Villa Navalia !!

Great house! beautiful overlooking lake.

  • 5 of 5

Great house! beautiful overlooking lake, comfortable, new, well kept. Incredible place. Must go to cafe across the street - proprietor Bruno and his wife. Wonderful place - Bruno and his family were friendly and helpful!! Great for breakfast, coffee, lunch, drinks... House is about a mile from center of town - walkable but a might be a bit of a trek for some. Nearby restaurants (get recommendations from Bruno!) are wonderful... Would go back in a minute.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I stayed one week in Villa Navalia with four other married couples. The interior of the villa is very spacious and comfortable. Each bedroom is a very good size with comfortable beds (also good size...we are tall Americans) and so are the bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped and the living area accommodated the ten of us very well. The villa is exactly as it is depicted in the photos--I mean, exactly--no surprises! Everything still has a "new" look...very clean also.

The deck overlooking the lake is just perfect; however, due to cooler than normal temperatures and a great deal of rain I only spent a couple of hours one afternoon enjoying it.

The first two days we did not have vehicles but the villa is close enough to Menaggio to walk. Again, unfortunately we were walking in the rain quite often! Extra umbrellas were available in the villa which helped. Once we had the rental vehicles, we also took a side trip to St. Mortiz which is less than a two-hour drive.

Villa La Gaeta (last scene of Casino Royale with Daniel Craig was filmed there) can be seen from the deck and is a short walk from the villa. This may not be of interest to everyone; however, my husband is a James Bond fan!

The only thing that I would have changed is the weather and, of course, that was not possible. With the cool, rainy weather it did get a bit too cold in the villa for most of us but there was plenty of hot water for showers. Drying our clothes became a problem also. The villa has a washer but no dryer. With the rain outdoors we had to bring the clothes racks inside...some clothes took three days to dry.

Because of our experience with the weather in the latter part of May, I would recommend that anyone stay here in the summer. Perhaps spring may be too unpredictable.

Menaggio is the largest town of the central lake area. It is also a part of the Triangolo Lariano. The Lario Triangle. Lario is the Latin name of the lake. The triangle connects Menaggio. Varenna and Bellagio. Most possibly the most popular villages. It is also the more 'lived in' village of the area with offices, shops, banks, schools and hospital. So not only will you be a part of the tourists staying in the village but you will be surrounded by locals so you will get the feeling of the Italian life style. Menaggio's lake front promenade is one of the nicest of the lake, beautifully taken care of by the council gardeners. Walking the length of the promenade you will reach the largest Lido on the lake, Lido Giardino Menaggio. A great place for a day at the beach, 25mt swimming pool with a kiddy pool as well, large beach with sun loungers, lake access, beach volley, playground and a pizzeria restaurant and brewery to enjoy a meal or an evening.

Menaggio is an old Roman town and has a wonderful antique historic center that begins down at the lake to continue up the hillside to the old walls of the Castel. Unfortunately there isn't much remaining of the original building but the Church of San Carlo is well worth a visit. The best thing to do is to take advantage of the Tourist office in the main Square, Piazza Garibaldi. Here you will find Matilde or Sandra who are very helpful and will give you all the information you could need, timetables, brochures, maps and indications on 'what to do today'. You will realize that It is well served by public transportation with frequent busses and boats. Como is only 25km away and Lugano 20km, but do remember your passport as it is in Switzerland.

Make sure you visit the surrounding villages, Porlezza, on the way to Lugano and is on Lake Lugano, continuing in this direction you reach ValSolda. A string of villages that have no choice than to creep up the mountain. It is known as the 'Piccolo Mondo Antico' the small antique world. Also the Tremezzina area must not be misses. It goes from Tremezzo to Lenno.....wonderful little villages all on the lake with beautiful Villas to visit, Carlotta and Balbianello and just to amble in general discovering the historic centers.

Bellagio and Varenna are surly not to be misses, Bellagio quite touristy but if you appreciate the lanes and historic center it is well worth the visit and not to be missed is the Villa Melzi. Varenna is very lovely, a wonderful lake side promenade, very original and of course the Villa Monastero.

This is just a small number of suggestions, you can discover the rest and if you find something you very much enjoyed on the Lake please let us know as we always appreciate feedback from our guests!
