  • My girlfriend & I spent a fantastic week staying at Paola & Stefano's place at Nobiallo. The apartment is just gorgeous, beautifully decorated & with spectacular views. Paola & Stefano were extremely helpful & friendly & gave us some great tips for our stay. It is a beautiful walk into Menaggio & only takes about 15 minutes. We would highly recommend this beautiful apartment & it's excellent hosts. Apart from other activities mentioned in the reviews .. We also really enjoyed walking on the Antica Strada Regina which Stefano told us about.

  • My boyfriend has booked this property as part of our "surprise" trip. I was extremely pleased with the choice. The room we had was a large flat right on the top, it has a beautiful double bedroom with a large window looking out to the lake, a large open plan living room with a small balcony with a table and chairs set, perfect for a romantic breakfast overlooking the lake! I love the decor, sweet and rustic, I believe Paola designed herself. The weather turned a little wintery when we were there but to no fear, this lovely little flat has heating hidden inside the walls! I was very surprised and definitely think it's highly effective, we were super cosy all the time.

    Paola was more than helpful, she welcomed us with a coffee on the balcony of her flat while telling us all about the places to visit and the best places to eat locally. We are food people and all her recommendations were right on spot (the best gnocchi in my life at La Tirlindana nearby town). The trip was made perfect by this accommodation and Paola's advices (and a bottle of Babara D'alba from her wine cave!). I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet romantic break.

  • Graziosissimo appartamento sottotetto, arredato con molta cura e buon gusto, ma anche molto confortevole e funzionale. Arrampicarsi un po' per arrivarci non è un problema, in fondo se si vuole girare per borghi del lago di Como arrampicarsi continuamente e' indispensabile. La vista sul lago e' davvero bellissima e poi c'è una pace e un silenzio impagabili. Un piccolo terrazzino per due fa immaginare deliziose colazioni o cene all'aperto ( non purtroppo a gennaio ) anche il giardino intorno e' davvero bello, anche solo per attraversarlo. Il letto e' grande e comodo, il bagno piccolo,ma spazioso, con una bella doccia, ottimo anche il corredo di asciugamani. Insomma siamo stati benissimo e il lago di Como e' veramente magico, con continui cambi di luce e con un'aria mai troppo fredda, ma sempre pulitissima. Consigliamo a tutti di andarci.

  • Fantastic first Airbnb experience. Stefano came and picked us up from Menaggio town and helped us with our bags up the stairs then gave us a run down of the place and what we could do while we were there. The pictures of the views don't do it justice and we would love to come back when it's not raining. Thanks for a great stay.

  • The apartment is lovely, the view breathtaking, but what really makes this place special is Paola and Stefano. They are the ultimate hosts whether you want privacy and quiet (as we did) or whether you want someone to prepare you fantastic Italian meals and guide you around the area. We did have one of Paola's breakfasts on the patio overlooking the lake and it was a highlight of our stay, although we really enjoyed the restaurants that Paola recommended. It's obvious that Paola and Stefano take pleasure in being hosts, and it was our good fortune to be the recipients of their warm hospitality.

  • This was our first experience with Airbnb and it was great! We arrived late in the evening and met with Paola's husband Stefano. He helped us carry our luggage up the numerous steps, showed us around the apartment and gave us some wonderful suggestions on what to eat and what to do while on Menaggio. Definitely listen to these recommendations. Our favorites were the dinner at the farmhouse, Villa Balbianello (aka Star Wars Villa), and the boat rental on the lake. A few things to note, the main town where most of the food, ferry boats, and boat rentals are is actually a little more than 1 mile away, the bed is on the firmer side, and there are a lot of steps! However, the view of the lake is amazing!

  • What else can I add to great comments this place already has? Well... In any case I would like to confirm all lovely words you can read about this apartment. This is MY BEST AIRBNB EXPERIENCE EVER! This love nest is absolutely amazing, the decoration inside very cosy and the views from bed and balcony are so beautiful and peaceful. Paola is a great host, she gave us the best tips and recommendations so we could explore the area feeling we were locals. Follow her advises about the best restaurants! We would like to come back some day. Álvaro & Elena.

  • Paola's loft is romantic with a beautiful view of Lake Como. Her husband Stefano met us and thoroughly walked us through everything we would need to know and gave us sightseeing tips.
    Be aware that the flat is a 10 min walk from Menaagio. We loved the walk but between that and the stairs and climb to the flat you need to be in shape!
    A bit of miscommunication regarding the c10 bus from Lake Como. Some of the c10 busses will drop you right outside the flat others terminate in Menaggio 10 min away from the flat.

  • My husband and I had SUCH a good time staying in this home! The views are more lovely than the photos can convey. The apartment is brand new but the environment is rustic and beautiful, just like you would hope and expect in Italy.

    When we first arrived Paola sat down with us over a limoncello and helped us map out our stay. She recommended a number of villas to visit and restaurants for us to try. In particular, she steered us to places off the beaten path like Agriturismo Barcola, a farm in the hills just above Menaggio. Honestly, this was the best meal I had in Italy. My husband and I loved it so much, we went back the next night!

    Paola took special note of my love of food and wine and in addition to the restaurant recommendations, she showed us their wine cellar and offered us some local wines to purchase that her husband had selected. At the end of each day of sight-seeing, we relaxed in our apartment with a lovely glass of Nebbiolo d'Alba.

    Although we stayed in Menaggio more by accident than by plan, it was the perfect location for a Lake Como visit. Not too busy but central to the ferries. Bellagio was very touristy and busy. It was fun to visit but I wouldn't want to stay there. Menaggio was just the right size and vibe for us. The apartment is directly adjacent to the local carabineri (police) in Menaggio so I never worried about our car. Nice bonus!

    The hike up the stairs each evening made me feel like I was working off a day's worth of pasta and gelato. I'm certain it didn't make a dent but I didn't mind the daily up and down of the steps. Especially because the views at the top were worth the workout.

    This apartment was so affordable and the hosts were so very helpful. It's a great way to spend your time on Lake Como. I highly recommend it and can't wait for my next stay in Italy.

  • The apartment in Menaggio situated on the heel side of the Lake Como does not only fulfils the promise of a wonderful view and some relaxing days but also gives you some fit legs going up and down the stairs. Our arrival was chaotic. My girlfriend and I had to pick up my mom from Como but after some travel issues we arrived very late at the apartment. That was not a problem for Stefano who welcomed us with his young daughter give us a quick look around and the basic info for the house. The place is cozy, very well decorated and makes you don't want to leave. Has a great view of the lake, but a bit dark at night due to not enough lights inside. After our arrival Stefano was also nice to showed us his wine cellar and gave us wonderful insides where to have lunch and buy groceries for the upcoming days.
    Menaggio is a little town approximately 45 minutes drive from Como city, all the little villages with their wonderful villas and gardens around is what makes the stay unforgettable.
