About Karen Rex

We are a professional couple with a teenage daughter and have enjoyed exploring in and around Menaggio for the last 15 years and absolutely love the stunning scenery, traveling across the lake on the boats, lakeside walks, eating lovely italian ice cream in the piazza's.

Karen Rex purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Karen Rex chose Plesio

The views are incredible of the lake and mountains from our apartment, the residency has a beautiful swimming pool with fantastic views, you can also play tennis, table tennis and enjoy a game of boules. We never tire of scenery from our property, each season is so different. The landscape is dramatic. It appealed to us as a family, or a couple, we can go sightseeing/walking in the morning/early afternoon and enjoy the pool etc mid to late afternoon, we still enjoy every visit to our apartment and always want to stay longer even 10 years later.....

What makes this apartment unique

Swimming Pool, Tennis Courts, Table Tennis, Boules Pitch, Spectacular Scenery, Lovely Residency, Free WiFi

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi there Karen, Anthony and Charlotte We have just got back from a wonderful holiday and have just now received your mail. We had a lovely time in Menaggio and Milan. The weather was very hot. 30 degrees and sunny too and you were right about the view, breathtaking! We mixed lazy days with sight-seeing and it was just what we needed so it was great to have time in a lovely location to suit ourselves and chill out! Thanks again for the let of your apartment.



Anthony and Karen, we have had a wonderful holiday, you were right the views are stunning from your apartment, we spent many an evening just relaxing with a bottle of wine on the terrace. We spent the mornings visiting the sights of Menaggio, Bellagio, Varenna and Tremezzo, the car ferry leaves from Menaggio but beware they do leave on time! and the afternoons relaxing by the pool, this was a real bonus too, everywhere you look it is beautiful, we will certainly recommend it to our family and friends.

Equipped with everything we needed - pool caps, table tennis, boules, tennis equipment plus all household things too. Excellent location with stunning views. We had a mix of chilled and busy times - just what we needed

Stunning location, amazing views... but accommodation could be slightly improved

  • 3 of 5

The location of this apartment is stunning. The views are to die for and the whole complex in which it sits is spotless, quiet and feels very safe. It is a 7 minute drive up the hill from Menaggio on very twisty roads which isn't much fun - but when you get there the views really are worth it.

The pool, tennis court and other sports facilities are great. The pool was busy at times (especially at the weekend) but we always found loungers - even when turning up mid afternoon.

The main downsides are with the apartment. The lighting is only through side lamps which need turning on at plug sockets and provide limited light. Also, there are very few plug sockets so we were often having to choose whether to have light or to charge our phones. A few more sockets would make a big difference.

There is also no air-conditioning in the apartment and only one fan so it does get hot. It's a shame there aren't ceiling fans in the bedrooms. It's also worth mentioning that the WiFi is fairly awful. Very slow and the router kept tripping out. Don't turn up expecting to watch a lot of Netflix.

The details of the sleeping accommodation aren't very clear on the website. It does sleep five but the bed in bedroom 2 isn't a full double (probably 4' wide) and would be very cosy with two people in it. The sofa bed in the living room is a full double and happily takes two people (although at the cost of a fair amount of living space).

There's no bath but the shower was excellent with plentiful hot hater.

Communication with the hosts was great. Clear instructions for arrival and good recommendations for the local area. A few more instructions for departure would have helped but we worked it out (we hope).

Certainly no regrets staying here but another time we would probably opt for somewhere with air-conditioning or ceiling fans. We won't find anywhere with better views though.
