First of all we found good services: help and tips on arrival, new home fitted with all is useful, perfectly clean, a big and private car parking, large balcony in a very quiet and sunny position, without any traffic.
Without using the car the village offers: markets, shops, bars, restaurants, local products, ferry or boat hire and bus stop.
In Lenno and in Menaggio we found tourist information offices and we visited a lot of locations: old villages, parks, gardens-villas. We played golf, we took a ride by horse, we rent a boat … we need to come back because there are a lot things to be enjoyed here in this spectacular natural setting, always with Lake and Alps around you.
We stayed here in September and enjoyed our stay immensely. The home is brand new, spacious and light and was perfect for our family and spotlessly clean. We were met by Fabio on arrival who was happy to share local tips on where to shop, eat and live like an italian! The village was only a 10 minute walk. We enjoyed hopping and and off the ferries to more touristy places like Menaggio and Bellagio, visiting the Lenno market for fresh fish and vegetables and creating an italian feast as best we could to enjoy on the terrace for lunch! The best thing about the home is the tranquility, complete peace and quiet, which was perfect to recharge our batteries from work, and the sunny location here in Lenno. Definitely our favourite village on the lake so we are glad we found this home!
Thank you to Fabio for all his help on arrival. Will definitely return next summer!
The house, furniture and everything inside is really new, comfortable and clean. The managers are really kind and nice persons.
When we were at the balcony or terrace, we got relax in the silence and perfume of nature, near woods, between mountains and the lake. The apartment is really sunny and bright, we enjoyed to have sun baths on the terrace and, at the same time, the air is nicely fresh, especially during the evening, when it comes down from the mountains woods. There is absolutely no traffic because the little streets finish exactly into the wide park of the apartments and the property is the last one in this area. We enjoyed walking to the lake front, or to visit ancient villages, having boats trips, mountains trecks … and a lot of good and nice restaurants.
Really recommended to join nature trips/sports with the comfort of the stay. We will come back.
Lenno is a very nice place. You can spent your time in many ways, from tranquil beautiful gardens and open villas to nightlife and livemusic. The apt has many restaurants nearby, all reachable on foot. Especially on tuesday morning it is quite unique for the big open market with all Italian special food and lots of native people and tourists. The apt is 15 mins walking to the ferry and the bus stop, from which you can visit all the villages on lake Como. I was particularly attracted by the old medieval village close to the apartment where it is still possible to play bocce like in the 50's.
Special interest holidays:
Lenno is home to some of the most picturesque scenery in Italy, never mind Lake Como (featured recently on the Holiday programme, BBC1, November 2006). Artists have visited Lake Como in their droves over many years.

A man made sandy beach is situated just 15 minutes walk down from the apartment.
