"Stunning views, fantastic weather, lots to see and do!"
Left on 08/23/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 23, 2013Stayed Aug 2013
Great welcome from managers who gave us everything we needed-thanks Barry!He gave us some very good info about where to go, what to do, where to eat etc. Lovely 2 bed apartment with all necessary comforts. (Weather very hot when there, would have been more comfortable with air con!1 fan provided-another would have helped!)Amazing views from the side balcony-loved getting up early and watching the sunrise, awe-inspiring. Perfect location, far enough from main village of Mennagio to enjoy quiet and views but close enough to walk or drive in when necessary. Supermarket very close with everything you need. Many good restaurants both in Mennagio and 5-10 minute walk from the apartment. Loved taking ferry to Varenna-what a beautiful village! Took speedboat onto lake and went to view Villa Balbianello (scene from James Bond movie) and swam in the lake-lovely. Close enough to drive to Switzerland for the day and visited a chocolate factory! All in all a wonderful week and hopefully will return next year!
Best thing about the holiday-views and peacefulness.
Air con would have made stay more comfortable.
"Shame about the crane that no-one informed us about..."
Left on 10/31/2012 for a stay in September 2012 | Miles CReviewed Oct 31, 2012Stayed Sep 2012
Stayed hear in August to celebrate my first anniversary with my girlfriend. The apartment was a little more expensive than others we'd considered, but looked nice in the photos.
Was very disappointed on arriving as no-one had mentioned the crane/building site to us when we booked (which is directly in front of the apartment on the other side of the road).
Complained on arrival and Barry (the agent) spoke to us over the phone and said you "...couldn't see the crane from the apartment or balcony...". Well personally speaking I don't think you can miss it.... It's visible from a couple of hundred yards away and definitely ruins what would otherwise be a fine view (the whole reason you go to the Italian lakes). Was also told on arrival that the crane was "...not used..." sure enough the builders arrived at 8:00 am on Monday morning.
I think for the money they're charging the service from the agent was less than great. We wouldn't have booked had we been informed about the building work - the agent did tell us that they used to mention the crane on the website but took it off because no-one minded. I suspect they took it off because no-one was booking...
I'd stay somewhere else if you want an unspoiled view.
crane has been removed prior to 2013 season, see latest review. Guest was infact inforrmed at the time crane only visible if standing at window in living room at the time or visible for 1 guest from balcony as other seats face different directions and was given a reduction off their stay as a result.
"What a view"
Left on 07/09/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | Linda RenfrewReviewed Jul 9, 2012Stayed Jun 2012
We had a lovely week at the apartment. The views are absoloutely stunning and it was a very peaceful spot. It was well equiped and very spacious and the service we recieved before and on arrival was excellent. The pool was a bit cool but was great having the garden area to enjoy the sun. It is a bit of a treck up the hill from the town, so make sure you take reasonable shoes. Mennagio was quiet( perhaps it was early in the season) but was a good spot to visit other towns on the lake.

We had a totally relaxing week aided by the view's and some glorious spring weather. The town below is charming and friendly and Barrie Webb a good bloke to deal with even when his team lost the fa cup final.
