Here kayak hire, power boat rental, golf and tennis clubs, a picturesque resort centre with ferry links, restaurants, shops and fantastic Lido (as our guests you will enjoy free entry) await your enjoyment.

The desirable western shore of Lake Como is also home to Tremezzina’s restaurants, lakeside Lidos and the famous Villa Carlotta and Villa Balbainello attractions. Guests are perfectly placed too for reaching the famous eastern shore resorts of Varenna and Bellagio by ferry, as well as a plethora of Central Lake leisure activities (from water sports to paragliding!).

From its scenic gated lakeside setting, the historical allure and hiking routes of Siro can easily be explored. The main lake road behind the property also leads to the resort centre of Menaggio, in just 6 minutes by car.

Here, supermarkets, boutique shops, the Central Lake ferry stop and the picturesque lakeside centre; with its pretty café-lined piazzas, authentic array of Italian restaurants and bars await your enjoyment. A beautiful lakeside promenade with views of Bellagio leads to the mini golf and Lido di Menaggio, in just a few minutes. Here at the Lido guests can truly unwind; with a sandy beach offering you the perfect excuse to enjoy a spot of sunbathing with a sophisticated cocktail from the on-site bar. A fabulous restaurant here will keep you more than satisfied whilst the volley ball, kids park, lake and pool swimming opportunities will ensure everyone is kept happy. The Lido is also the perfect place to come to in the evenings; for a classic aperitif moment at the vibrant bar, an ambient evening meal or a fun night of dancing under the stars.

Menaggio offers many leisure pursuits to enjoy too; with kayak hire, power boat rental, fishing and cycling routes along the lakeshore and hiking, tennis and golf to enjoy up on the scenic hillside.

Perfectly placed along the desirable central western shore, the pretty resort town also places guests at the perfect starting point for reaching the Tremezzina restaurants, lidos, walking routes (Sacro Monte di Ossuccio, Greenway del Lago and San Martino) and the beautiful Villa attractions (Villa Carlotta and Villa Balbianello). Menaggio also offers carefree proximity to the Central Lake resort towns of Bellagio (for tourist shopping, the Villa Melzi and Villa Serbelloni gardens, the Jungle Raider Park and the Extreme Outdoor Sport club) and Varenna (for Hotel Villa Cipressi, Villa Monastero, Castello di Vezio).

L'appartement est conforme à la description, grand et propre. La vue sur le lac est magnifique, l'accueil à l'agence très agréable. Attention à la route très passante. beaucoup de choses à faire aux environs et de très bons conseils donnés à l'arrivée. Il n'y a pas d'états des lieux à l'arrivée ni au départ mais on peut faire confiance. Merci.
