About the property

Lakefront Apartment in Menaggio, Lake Como, Italy - Free wi-fi included!

This beautiful truly waterfront apartment is located in one of the oldest and more prestigious buildings of Menaggio, the Grand Hotel. The apartment has been completely newly renovated last year with high quality finishes, like wooden floor, modern kitchen, bathroom with venetian stucco and a large shower with "Bisazza" mosaic. It is located in a very practical position where everything can be reached within walking distance: shops, supermarkets, restaurants, coffee bars, public beach with swimming pool, lake promenade, ferry boat, bus station and many other facilities. The second oldest Golf Club in Italy (1906) is located in Menaggio, just five minutes drive away from the apartment. The apartment is very quiet and relaxing and its balcony offers stunning views of the lake and the surrounding mountains and it is one of the best places to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of Lake Como. For your comfort, now free wi-fi is available at our apartment.

Great apartment, fabulous views, superb location

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to find anything to add of value which hasn't been already been said by previous reviewers! I would just like to endorse the great reviews this property has already received and to say you cannot really appreciate how great the location/views are until you have been here.

It was hard to drag ourselves away from the balcony, where we enjoyed watching the changing light at different times of the day.

The property is very clean and well maintained and the photos give an accurate representation. As has previously been said, Deborah handles the online booking/correspondence very efficiently and her mother Susy is absolutely charming, very welcoming and helpful. We had some travel issues both in arrival (5 hours flight delay) and in departing and Susy was really kind and supportive.

The apartment suited us perfectly, situated between the main part of the village and the ferry terminal. There is a great little supermarket 2 minutes walk away and we also enjoyed exploring what is on offer in local speciality food shops to sample their delights as well as the variety of restaurants close by.

There are plenty of lovely places to visit locally, but as said by other reviewers too, we were glad to come 'home' to Menaggio.

Lovely views and fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful short break in Menaggio, the contact with Deborah before we came was brilliant, even down to providing trains and boat times so our transfers went smoothly. Susy met us from the ferry and was genuinely warm and friendly. The apartment is like a home from home, very well equipped, very clean and well looked after. The view and location are brilliant. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment. Thank you very much for a wonderful holiday.

Wonderful property and owners

  • 5 of 5

We have now had the pleasure of staying in this unit three times; September 2015, March 2016 and April 2016. If we could move in permanently, we would. The unit itself is wonderful and offers all the comforts you could possibly want. But the view, location, sound of the water lapping when you open the French doors to the balcony and Deborah and Susy really set it apart and make it extra special. Our son was 5 months old at our first visit and Deborah and Susy kindly arranged for a baby cot to be set up for him (the mattress of which is fantastic!). As he grew, they added a highchair too and Susy even gave him a little bear to remember Como by. The unit is impeccably clean, reachable by elevator (which makes it easy with a stroller), quiet, very quick walk to center (all by sidewalk) and to the ferry, no car needed, but underground parking is available in the building, wifi is fast – it's really hard to come up with something to fault! On our last visit, my parents joined us as well and it was still very roomy with 4 adults and a 1 year old. Menaggio itself is our favorite among the towns on the lake and is a perfect base. Highly recommend.

Perfect in every respect

  • 5 of 5

Personal welcome by Susy at the bus stop. Fantastic views, perfect location for walking, restaurants, groceries, bus and boat. Great tips on where to hike, what to do and see. Couldn't have been better. After visiting other villages on the central lake, we were delighted to have selected Menaggio and this apartment. We look forward to a return visit.

Great place, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment in a fantastic location overlooking Lake Como. Deborah and Suzie gave us a great welcome and send off and tips to keep cool in the exceptionally hot summer! If you want a central property in Menaggio, overlooking the lake, then this is the place to be. Thanks again for a lovely holiday.
