Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in Villa Navalia for one week during September 2015.

Villa Navalia is a lovely penthouse apartment with stunning views of Lake Como. The property was absolutely spotless. Everything was perfectly clean. The kitchen is well stocked with enough crockery and implements to cook at "home" and enjoy the beautiful views. With three bedrooms and three full bathrooms there was adequate space for five of us. Having the balcony on the front of the apartment was a special location to enjoy an evening meal or glass of wine and watch the changing colours over the mountains as dusk approached. The small supermarket is close by and the ferry is on the other side of the Menaggio village. All within an easy and enjoyable walk from the apartment. Onsite parking a bonus and the internet was reliable.

Laura was very helpful and efficient with correspondence. She also met us upon arrival and departure. We would love to return to Villa Navalia any time of year. Thank you Laura for a lovely week!

Spacious Penthouse With Front Terrace &, 5 Lake View Balconies
average rating of 4.75 based on 16 reviews


  • 5 of 5

This spacious penthouse is simply perfect! We stayed here for ten days and loved it! It is very clean and the kitchen is fully equipped. Travelling with an infant, we ended up having dinner at the penthouse every night and did not regret it! The views, whether it be morning, noon or night, are stunning. No pictures could give them justice. A grocery store is a ten minute walk and there are many little shops which offer italian specialties! A fifteen minute walk takes you to the ferry station where you could go visit Bellagio and other places. We would go back to Laura's penthouse in a heartbeat! No hesitation to recommend!

Fantastic property and location

  • 5 of 5

Villa Navalia more than met our expectations! It is so comfortable and well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the lake change with the weather, We were able to get to town, the ferry, etc. quite easily, but had a hard time deciding whether to go out and explore or just enjoy the beautiful scenery from the terrace.. Our only suggestion for improvement is more lighting in the living room seating area. Unfortunately, we didn't have the pleasure of meeting Laura who was out of town, but she'd taken care of everything for us and arranged for Alberto to greet us upon arrival. I can't wait to return.

spectacular villa

  • 4 of 5

Pluses: Spectacular views from Inside and out, beautiful interior design, plenty of parking, very spacious, great location (walking or biking with the the Villa courteousy bikes to Menaggio center was really pleasant). Laura was helpfull any time of day and the booklet they have prepared for guess at the villa was very informative for things to do and where to go.

Minuses : Bad internet & matteresses in all rooms were to least for us.

We recommend this place

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa has a great position on the lake, and it looks just like the pictures. It is beautiful! It was our first time in Lake Como, and we had a great time! Menaggio is very close. Our kids loved the beach club in Menaggio. Laura took good care of us. We definitely want to go back!

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 clients!
