Casa Paradiso is genuinely a slice of paradise, boasting breathtaking panoramic views of Lake Como that make you feel good to be alive. You can see from Villa Gaeta (made famous in the 2006 James Bond movie “Casino Royale” all the way to stunning Bellagio. Surrounded by mountain ranges dotted with picturesque villages you will have to drag yourself away to enjoy all the pleasures the Lake has to offer.
This stylish 3 bedroom apartment has been designed with pure pleasure in mind. It has it's own private garden with olive trees and a jasmine covered pergola. You can eat inside or outside but always surrounded by light and dreamy lake views. The apartment also enjoys a shared swimming pool with even more stunning panoramic views of the Lake. There are sun-beds both at the pool and in the apartments terrace where you can put your feet up and while away the afternoon.
The apartment is beautifully furnished in contemporary style with all mod cons. It is open plan and drenched in natural light unlike most Italian apartments. In almost every corner of the apartment you will enjoy the spectacular views i.e. from the garden, the generous balconies, living areas, master bedroom and ensuite and even whilst you are cooking should you chose to do so in the generously appointed kitchen!
The pictures simply do not justice to the magnitude of beauty, quality, peace and relaxation that the property affords.
If you feel you can tear yourself from your home, the delights of Lake Como are waiting to be discovered. Palm lined lakeside walks in the village of Menaggio, homemade gelato, a public Lido with swimming pool and lake side swimming, fabulous cuisine, famous Villa's, inviting beaches and 22 miles of Italy's most dramatic lake are waiting to embrace you.
The apartment is 5 minutes by car outside of Menaggio further up the hill. You can walk into town in approx 15-20 minutes or explore on foot local restaurants, the local historical village of Loveno or walk along an ancient Roman road to a local Church at Nobiallo that plays Ave Maria at 8am and pm every day - the only sound you will hear apart from the odd hum of a bird or boat on the lake!
There are also fabulous hikes up the dramatic mountains behind the apartment and all the other attractions up and down the Lake including the chance to bump into George Clooney in the nearby Laglio! You are only 20 minutes from the Swiss border and Lugano and 40 minutes one of the best “Designer Outlet” shopping Malls in Europe i.e. Foxtown in Mendrisio.
The large 200m2+ apartment includes 3 bedrooms: 1 very spacious double Master Bedroom with private terrace and ensuite and huge 2 person shower that also enjoys lake views, w/c and bidet.

"Enter the tranquil side of Italy where nothing much happens and then what does happens that much slower"
If you value peace and tranquility Lake Como will delight and refresh in equal measure. The welcoming locals add to the ocassion, visit the bakery for baking from a seemingly bygone age or pop in for some tomatoes and rocket from the local fruit & veg man, and he will be happy to give you a few receipe tips! Think of the uk with the ugly bits taken out, majestic mountains, a mesmering world renowned lake,sprinkle in some balmy weather, seemingly happy and content local people, consistently good food & wine and you have an idea of the ingrdients that make Lake Como such a sought after holiday location!
Pretty piazzas, 14th century churches, ornately furnished parks, lidos and beaches, vivacious villas, lazy lunches and boat hire for a memorable day out are just are few examples of life here.
World renowned cuisine, the simple italian seasonal flavours are in evidence throughout the pretty village here in Menaggio from exquisite hotels to trattorias and cafes, all serving delicious regional cuisine. The lido in Menaggio is the perfect way to relax, the ferry accessible to most parts of the lake including Bellagio. Ferry is located just 5 minutes drive from the home in the village (car recommended)
But remember, if a relaxing break with nothing more than a book and glass of wine is your idea of bliss, doing nothing much is a theme of lakeside living.

As we arrived in Menaggio there was a little problem with the check in, we have to wait but then everthing was fine and we checked in to the lovely apartment.
We (three aduld person) had a great and relaxing week there.
The Hosts told us there will be a crane which may influecend the view but this crane was already removed and so we had a marvelous view all over the lake and on the arrival saturday with fireworks.
Menaggio is only a short drive time away and you get there everything. we also did trips to Porlezza, Como and just arround the Comerlake.
The aparment has 3 bedrooms one is a big with ensuite bad the other two are a little bit smaller but with also a shared bathroom.
The Livingroom with the open specious kitchen was just great and the best is the large garden with the dining area and the pool just a few steps above.
The Hosts are really frindly and kind and we had a great time there.
Many thanks for your email and kind comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your time and the home and look forward to welcoming you back soon. We like to be transparent with guests hence notifying you a crane was in view, now removed so the 180 degree panoramic view is completely unspoiled. We do notify all guests to contact us 1 hour prior to arrival to ensure we do not keep you waiting on arrival so apologese for the delay reaching you.
Many thanks once more.

This villa is spacious, very comfortable and nicely furnished. The views from the balcony directly overlooking Lake Como are spectacular. It is a bit away from the town, but not a real problem, but you do need a car.
We wished we could have stayed longer.

Except for the building works going on next door, we loved our apartment, the pool, the views of the lake,
the outdoor eating area,well equipped kitchen etc..
walk down to the town was always a great walk, walk up was challenging. definately need a car if you stay here, which we had.
