Superb few days in Menaggio.
Casa Angiolina is ideal for a short break in Menaggio. You're a few minutes away from the lakeside and accompanying bars and restaurants but close to food shops as well. Sylvie stayed in touch as our stay approached and the check in with Ketty was fine (bought some excellent prosciutto and cheese at her shop too...). We were lucky enough to get a parking space in front of the apartment and left the car there for whole of our stay... public transport is great round lago Como.
We walked up to the rifugio Menaggio (bus to the start at Breglia), visited Bellagio for lunch, played mini golf, watched a terrific storm over the lake and got soaked walking along the lakeside the next day - all in all, a busy few days!
We had dinner in the Pizzeria Lugano (300m along the way) which was good - best spaghetti aglio olio ever and Il Pozzo on our last night - neither disappointed.
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with so many visits ( and memories :)). Thank you so much for your nice words. You are welcome back any time!
Not Good for hot weather
This apartment is on top floor, when it is 90 degrees outside, it can be very hot. The owner refuses to provide a fan, claims fan is a fire hazard which I think is very unreasonable.
The owner is remote, can not be reached. She has her friend managed the property who does not speak English very well.
If you ever need anything after you get there, it is impossible to resolve. I also find charging for towels a bit strange, consider the towel they provide is really rough, it is probably better bring a travel towel with you.
The location is very good, but the building is old, you can smell it.
Due to the hot weather, we really had a tough time. We cannot imagine local resident does not have fans in their house. We did buy a fan ourselves to get by the three nights we were there, we gave it away when we leave because we do not want to be liable for ‘fire’. If you ever need to buy a fan, there is a shop just a block away.
TOUT est inscrit dans l’annonce, nous ne sommes pas responsables de vos choix. Je peux vous conseiller le Bellavista, le Victoria ou le Grand Hôtel Menaggio qui semblent le mieux correspondre à vos goûts ( en particulier une réceptionniste « locale » mais parlant anglais). Attention cependant, ce sont des bâtiments plus que centenaires comme le nôtre... Je regrette que vous ayez eu à acheter puis à vous débarrasser d’un ventilateur, est-ce raisonnable et/ou éco responsable … ? Je suis joignable à tout moment par SMS et via l’appli (nous avons beaucoup échangé avant et à votre arrivée).Nos hôtes nous ont régulièrement crédité d’évaluations 5/5 à toute période de l’année. Vous indiquez « not good for hot weather », mais l’Italie est un pays chaud…
Vous avez répété avant de partir « very good, very good » ( = « Tutto bene »), nous vous avons évalué 5/5, …comme quoi tout le monde peut se tromper !
If an English translation is needed, just ask me, I speak your language fluently.
Menaggio was a lovely place to stay on Lake Como. The apartment was good with plenty of room and a great view of the lake. It was a little bit noisy with people coming and going at night and children playing on the church grounds opposite. Be aware if you want bed linen and towels you have to pay extra for 3nights a cost of 25 euro.
Thank you for your nice review!
GREST is a very important and cheerful meeting organized in June by the Parish for the kids ! You are right, bed linen was not included in the price for less fees and a better price if you can bring them but it might be included in the total price in 2020.
Very best wishes
Fantastic week in Casa Angiolini, Menaggio
Our stay in Menaggio was spectacular!! Sylvie has a beautiful casa with everything one could need. The location is perfect for exploring Menaggio, the other lake towns, as well as Lugano on the Swiss border. Having a small grocery downstairs was fantastic for buying all our food daily, fresh bread, etc. and the church bells were charming. We were traveling by rail and had no problem getting around. Bus and ferry took us everywhere. The people were so warm and friendly. Thank you Sylvie (and Ketty and Giovanni) for an unforgettable week!!!
Historic apartment in a beautiful spot
We had a great stay in Sylvie's apartment. It is well-equipped for self-catering and Sylvie has left comprehensive information about trips, hikes, restaurant recommendations etc which we found really useful.
The flat is right in the centre of Menaggio (very close to the famous bell tower, so you will hear the quarter-hourly chimes, but they stop at night!). Menaggio is great base for visiting Lake Como and we loved the beautiful views across the lake from the apartment.
Sylvie was extremely helpful both before and during our trip, providing loads of recommendations etc. Ketty was on hand in her shop on the corner for any local issues.
Breathtaking views from a delightful apartment
We feel so fortunate to have found this apartment. Once up the stone stairs, we found ourselves in a light and spacious sitting room with a good-sized modern kitchen off. This was very well provided with crockery, utensils and cooking equipment. All three windows from these two rooms had amazing views over the house tops to the lake which changed with the light. The bedroom had a comfortable bed and sufficient clothes storage, and the bathroom was modern with a shower that was easy to regulate.
The lake front with its promenade and restaurants was only five minutes' walk, Ketty's shop for delicious prosciutto di Parma and melon (as well as everyday bread) was 15 metres, and a supermarket only 10 minutes' walk. We loved the narrow streets and steps of the old town.
We did not hire a car. We found the various buses which stopped just down the road reliable and cheap, whilst the boats were only 10 minutes' walk. So the position of the apartment was excellent for getting around.
Sylvie and Mouloud provide lots of information in French and English. we were particularly interested in the walking possibilities; Menaggio is an excellent centre for hiking, though the weather was so hot in June we had to limit our ambitions. Our favourites were San Martino Chapel which we had climbed to by 10.00am and the Greenway. This we divided into two, combining one stretch with a visit to Villa Balbianello, and the other with Villa Carlotta. Lovely views are everywhere. We would love to return in Spring or Autumn for cooler weather and the opportunity (perhaps with car hire) to reach some of the further walks.
Sylvie gave us lots of information before our visit and Mathilde in the Tourist Information office was very knowledgeable about walks in the area.
Ketty and her husband were very welcoming , too.
We will have very happy memories and beautiful photos.
