This Airbnb apartment is situated in Noballio, just outside Menaggio. There are some strong pros and strong cons. First of all, you have to climb a hundred stairs to reach the apartment, which gets somewhat annoying after a few days (with groceries etc.). But once you climbed to your apartment, you are rewarded with a beautiful view on the lake.
Then there is the walk from Noballio (the apartment is situated in Noballio, not in Menaggio): it is a 21 minutes walk (see Google maps). To and from Menaggio each time takes you 45 minutes in total by foot. But you can also go by bike or by bus. The apartment itself is nice, with enough electricity points and good beds. No microwave, no washing machine, no TV. On the other hand, the lovely loggia that you see on the Airbnb advertisement is NOT part of your apartment. You will have a small balcony, with room for 2 persons. But still: a lovely balcony, with a tremendous view. The “Outside terrace for romantic dinners “ is a dirty plastic table and some dirty plastic chairs.
I asked the owner for a “complete reliable internet”, since this was a working vacation for me. But the internet failed, and we had to leave one day earlier than paid for. In summary, if you don't have problems with an apartment that is not real close to the city center or with climbing many stairs, and if you don't care too much about Wifi, than this is a good apartment for you. For us, it was less suitable.
We are very sorry that Olivier has not fully appreciated our hospitality, and we thank him for the notes has advanced on our property.
However, we should point out that the distance from Menaggio is regularly highlighted in the description, as well as access to the apartment (just look at the photos) and in any case those who decide to come and spend a holiday at Lake Como must prepare to walk and constant movement .
In fact, the main photo was taken from our terrace at a room with some guests, we feel best represents our house and in any case in the legend of the photo is well specified.
As for internet access are available free 2 GB of internet browsing, then it’s possible, that for reasons beyond our control, the connection is not fast or fully reliable (the provider has assured us that the connection was working).
Next time, we hope will return to Lake Como, we recommend to Olivier to stay in a downtown hotel with all "the comfort" , so avoid "long walks" but probably will not enjoy the peace and the views of our abode.
We had a great time in Menaggio. Paola's apartment was perfect for our needs. She and Stefano were more than accommodating, as we were traveling with our daughter. We loved the accessibility into Menaggio and Paola and Stefano had great suggestions of things to do in the area. The views of the lake are amazing - we enjoyed wine on the balcony each night. We hope to be back!
L'appartement est au dernière étage de leur maison. C'est propre et plein de charme. La vue sur le lac est magique (il y a un petit balcon avec une table et deux chaises face au lac). La maison est située à 10-15min à pied au nord du centre de Menaggio. Il y a un arrêt du bus qui va de Côme au nord du lac en face de la maison. Paola nous a accueilli avec un verre et du chocolat. Elle nous a donné tout un tas de conseils sur les choses à visiter et les restos environnants.
Paola gave us a warm welcome to her lovingly restored apartment over their beautiful home and shared suggestions with us about restaurants and things to do in the area. The apartment is beautifully appointed with everything you need and is very private. The amazing views of the lake and snow-capped mountains from every room are breathtaking.
Отдых в романтическом доме на берегу озера Комо был незабываемый. По приезду Паола встретила нас в доме, и после того как мы расположились, пригласила нас к себе на веранду (она живёт в этом же доме этажом ниже) и рассказала обо всех достопримечательностях, местах, которые нам следует посетить, о самых вкусных ресторанах и самых интересных маршрутах. Дом находится в 15 минутах пешком от центра города Менаджио. Мы добирались до дома на машине и немного расстроились, увидев, что дом находится сразу после автомобильного туннеля. Но, как оказалось, слева от туннеля проходит живописная дорожка с видом на озеро, поэтому прогулка до центра довольно приятная. Паула посоветовала нам взять паром и объехать три города золотого треугольника - Беладжио, Варенна и Менаджио. Все три города по своему удивительные, Беладжио наиболее туристический, Варенна - небольшой и романтичный, а Менаджио, на мой взгляд наиболее подходит для того, чтобы провести там несколько дней - там есть и кафе, и магазины, и большой променад. Теперь о доме - как многие пишут, он находится на возвышенности, вход на территорию дома с дороги, возле которой можно припарковать машину, и от входа начинается крутая лестница до самого верха. Территория дома очень большая и красивая, там много интересных интерьерных решений, есть даже погреб с вином. Сама квартира - светлая и уютная, вид на озеро буквально из каждой части дома, а балкон с потрясающим видом это просто что-то невероятное! Очень рекомендую утром съездить на велосипедах до ближайшего магазина, купить еды и устроить завтрак прямо на балконе!
We really enjoid our vacation at romantic attic. The view from our balcony was amazing. Room had all equipment we needed for our stay and Paola was excellent host. Definitely will suggest that place to people how want to rest in quiet pleace and enjoi breathtaking view.
