Stefania and her family have a wonderful place perched atop Menaggio with fantastic views and a comfy little place below where her family lives. Stefania was at all times professional, friendly, and attentive.
We stayed for two nights and were able to enjoy great weather in Lake Como, and with a homebase like her place, it was an overall nice experience.
The only thing to make sure to know is that the second bedroom is the bunk beds you see in the picture, so if you're traveling with another couple, keep that in mind. Maybe they can just pretend to be kids again!
Stay here! Stefania is a sweet and wonderful host who went above and beyond anything we could have asked for. Since we were visting as part of a birthday trip, Stefania suggested and arranged for birthday balloons and flowers and wine, decorating the whole living area for our arrival. What a terrific surprise for our guest of honor! We also added the "B&B On Demand" breakfast option, which for a very reasonably price Stefania provided a generous spread of homebaked goods, juices, coffee, jams, etc.
The apartment itself is lovely. Better than it looks in the pictures, with gorgeous solid wood doors. Very clean and comfortable. The view is worth it. We had a car and it was very convenient for us. Also, we ate at CO.RI (the restaurant down the street) two nights in a row, that's how much we enjoyed it!
Had an amazing time at the house. Great view and very nice hosts.
It is a very nice apartment with a fantastic view!!!Everyone there is very helpful especially the father of Lucca.The family had to go on vacation,but we were fortunate to have met Lucca's father.I recommend this apartment to everyone who wants to visit the amazing lake COMO...
Stefania's apartment is a beautiful and charming place and she is a very kind and generous host. I had the opportunity to stay at Samlu house with my boyfriend recently and it was almost perfect--the almost being that the other reviewers are right about the noise from the street. However, we adapted to it and by the final nights it wasn't such a problem.
The apartment was exactly as described, better even because the view is truly spectacular and the location, perched on the side of the mountain above Menaggio, was very good. We spent most of our time on the terrace having breakfast or dinner, or exploring some of the surrounding towns and mountains. Having a car was extremely beneficial but I imagine you could still have a wonderful time without on, if you were comfortable taking the local bus.
As mentioned, Stefania was very kind and brought us delicious cakes for breakfast one morning. She was understanding when I had to make two adjustments to the reservation, and helpful with suggestions of things to do.
Overall a wonderful experience!
Mooi huis, prachtig terras met een geweldig uitzicht. Wel lawaai van het verkeer op de weg. Metname in het weekend !
Stefany was a very kind and friendly host and the house was in really great shape. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen well stocked. The place also had a washing machine which was very nice for us, since we were at the halfway point of our vacation.
However, except for the view - the location is not very good . The house is situated up a hill, far from the town below, and right next to a main road. The road does a very hard turn outside the house, causing the motorist to slow down, then accelerate up past the house as the road straightens out. This took away the joy of sitting outside and relaxing on the wonderful terrace. We also found the noise from the road annoying by night - although it helped a lot when we closed the door and shutters on the balcony on our second night. I really hate to give this rental a bad review because the interior of the house was so perfect and the host so friendly - but I have to be honest and say that I regret that I didn't find a place with more peace and quite.
Stefania is very friendly ! The apartment is new, very large and fully equipped. There is a large terrace with a magnificent view of the lake !
Stefania was a great host and came to check that we were happy with everything numerous times. She was very helpful with giving recommendations too.
The house has a great terrace which has a fantastic view and is a great place to relax and eat.
This property is a great location as long as you have a car which we did and offered parking too. Easy 5 minute drive to Menaggio where we parked and took boats to other areas which was a great way to visit the area.
Beautiful spot and would definitely recommend.
We did not meet Stefania as she was holidaying in Sicily with the kids, but she is such a fantastic communicator that she was able to resolve any issues we had quickly and accurately all the way from there. We did meet Luca who is a real sweetie - gentle, kind and generous. He is a tax accountant and we stayed in June - his busiest time. However that did not stop him dropping by to make sure we were OK and one evening he even introduced us to a wonderful Sardinian liqueur called Mirto. The apartment was everything we wanted - very clean with that fantastic view. It has a good kitchen and we were able to cook several meals. It is a little way out of town and the buses take a little getting used to, so it might be best to have a car. If you come by train and ferry to Menaggio, I'd recommend you get a taxi to the apartment first time - they are usually to be found in the square around to the right of where the ferry docks. The apartment is above a road that can be busy at times, but if you wait till later or get up early, you have peace and quiet and that wonderful view. Very soothing. Stefania has emphasised the correct address in the property description, but for some reason, AirBnB's confirmation message will give you an incorrect one which can confuse bus and taxi drivers.
The correct address is VIA ALLA GRONA 33, PLESIO
