Very sunny location with breathtaking lake view. Located in San Siro, one of the most beautiful village of the Lake Como, at just 10 minute drive from the famous resort village of Menaggio. The apartment is part of a luxury Residence with shared mosaic swimming pool and solarium and it comprises living room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 1 cloakroom toilet. This wonderful flat makes your holiday a dream.
This apartment surprised us by how modern, spacious,well-equipped and clean it was. The pictures don't do it justice. The location ,up a steep hill of 8 hairpin bends, is not within realistic, easy walking distance of the lake or other amenities but is made up for by the view, the quietness and having the pool for cooling down on hot days. The apartment could do with air- conditioning and wi-fi but because it doesn't might explain why it's less expensive than it's neighboring properties.
The letting agency were excellent, sending us the best directions to find the property that we've ever had(photos of the road /signs right from the airport to the apartment) and coming to the apartment to meet us on arrival.
We enjoyed trips on the lake by every type of craft available and trips to Como, Varenna, Bellagio and of course Mennagio, and the extremes of very high temperatures and then heavy rain didn't spoil these experiences. We also went over the border to Lugano and would recommend that too. The best pizza was in Pizzeria Lucarno in Menaggio(15 minutes away), a basic but fantastic atmospheric place where you can see your pizza being fired and only be charged 7 Euros for a good sized, original pizza.Not a place to spot celebs but that's why it's so good.
So, this apartment is definitely recommended provided you have a car and don't mind driving on narrow, busy lakeside and mountain roads.
