  • 5 of 5

"The apartment was well equipped with everything necessary for a comfortable stay. We especially appreciated the range of maps and information on the surrounding area, which saved a lot of time. The views from the terrace are extraordinary- the lake and mountains which are beautiful at any time of day.Lastly the owners, Manola and Pino were extremely friendly and helpful, and although we didn''t need to contact them whilst we were at the apartment, I was confident that they would have been available if needed.(Also the neighbours were very kind, leaving us produce on the doorstep!)"

  • 5 of 5

"Apartment was spotlessly clean and well supplied, including food we could use to supplement our own. The area itself is north of Menaggio so not in the heart of tourism, but rather in an authentic village atmosphere with a sensational view and lovely local walks. It's right at the top of the building (so lots of steps with bags to carry) but once in the apartment all cares fall away - wish we could have stayed longer!!"

Le séjour fut à tout point de vue parfait : qualité de l'accueil, cadeaux de bienvenu et de départ, aide apporté au cours du séjour, conformité à la description fournie et au delà, présence de tous les équipements utiles, tant ménagers que culinaires, décoration soignée et de bon goût, vue remarquable depuis une magnifique terrasse également bien équipée, environnement calme d'un village pittoresque, sans trop d'affluence touristique (ce qui n'est pas toujours le cas sur cette côte).

Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de Manola et Pino, et de ce trop court séjour, que nous n'hésiterons pas à renouveler.

Superbe !

  • 5 of 5

Superbe appartement, idéalement situé pour rayonner dans la région et très bien équipé. Nous avons passé à la Vella de très bonnes vacances avec notre fille de quatre mois qui a bien apprécié le calme du lieu. Location à conseiller vivement.

From Milano: take the motorway A9 Milano-Laghi, exit Como Nord, follow direction to Menaggio SS340DIR. Once in the town of Griante-Cadenabbia take the tunnel to Sondrio - St. Moritz. After the village CREMIA, before the tunnel, turn on the right to Musso -Pianello del Lario. In Pianello follow the direction to COSLIA.

From Lugano: Exit Lugano Nord in direction Passage Dogana di Gandria, follow the direction to Menaggio SS340. Before arriving in Menaggio, at the roundabout take the second exit towards Sondrio-St. Moritz and continue like above indicated.

“la vela” is a wonderful venue to just sit, relax and take in the view but if you wish there are many activities that you can take part in.

In just 10 minutes walk downhill you can reach the lake with its many beautiful free beaches, typical bars and restaurants. Walking along the new built lake promenade it is possible to visit the nearby towns of Cremia, Musso and Gravedona.

There are also many sporting activities to enjoy around the lake including sailing, wind & kite surfing, cycling, horseriding and the world class Menaggio Golf Course.

By car or bus you can easily visit the nearby mountains to take part in ski-ing, hiking and generally enjoying the wonderful mountain ambiance of this spectacular area.

There are many beautiful towns and villages to visit around the lake including Rezzonico with its ancient castle and the renowned tourist centre of Menaggio. By boat it is possible to visit many beautiful villas with their lovely gardens as well as the historic towns of Varenna, Bellagio and Como.
