We stayed here with our extended family and enjoyed a lovely time here at this residence (we booked 3 apartments in total, 2 on the top floor and this ground floor apartment) which worked out as very convenient to meet up as well as offer us privacy. The pool we enjoyed to ourselves. There is a secure parking space included for each home however we did not need to use our car as the ferry and supermarket are a short walk from the residence. Highlights included a visit to the 007 villa from Casino Royale located at Villa Balbianello in the village centre of Lenno and trips on the lake (we used the ferry and hired a boat from Igor，our favourite way of seeing the lake！）Thank you Barrie for the welcome pack and wine on arrival, we had a wonderful stay.
We had a lovely holiday. As soon as we arrived in the airport we had a text from the owner to arrange a meeting time at the property. The property was modern, clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was within a gated development so felt very secure and it was a 5 minute walk to the lakeside in Lenno which has the most fantastic views. The pool was great on the very hot days. We felt Lenno was the best part of the lake to be in - close to Menaggio, the ferry to Bellagio and Como itself. There are some good restaurants and a good gelateria. I would highly recommend this property. We had a fabulous time at Lake Como!
Franco was the perfect host, welcoming us with a bottle of wine and a smile, nothing was too much trouble for him! The location is superb, just a short walk to the supermarket, restaurants, bars, shops and bank. Highlights include hiring a boat at lido di lenno and visiting the beach and 007 village here in the village. The home itself is very modern, clean, well kitted out with satellite tv and wifi when we needed our fix of uk tv! Plus secure parking, although we hardly used the car, preferring the ferry to get out and about. We did, however use the pool daily, often to ourselves during the day to keep cool! Will definitely return next year as we have family in Como we are frequent visitors. Lenno, and this residence, are as good as we have found!
We stayed here last September for a late summer break. We visit Lake Como frequently each year as we have family living close by and this home was very convenient to reach all amenities. The pool was very welcome as hot for this time of year although the home inside is lovely and cool. The property is well kitted out with english tv and wifi. It was only a short walk to all amenities so we did not use the car much, the ferry stop took us to Bellagio, Como and all the touristy places but Lenno was definitely our favourite with the lido beach and pretty lake front. We enjoyed visiting the 007 villa in the village and drinking wine at the bar sport and pizzas at the ranch close to the villa. Would definitely recommend this home and the friendly owner Franco who was a delight. Thank you
