*** Reviews ~
Thank you for all the help we received from your company when we booked Terrazza Elegante for the week 6th to 13th September.
The property was great and we enjoyed meeting Laura. Laura was a great owner and gave us loads of information. She was helpful but very discreet.
We had a GREAT holiday in a beautiful apartment. We had some difficulty finding the villa as we arrived VERY late due to the Italian Strike, uckily we got seats on the afternoon flight but we arrived in the dark !!! What a pleasure it was to walk into such a lovely place.
Thank you to everyone.

About this location
The Lake Como region
The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.
Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.
It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.
All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.
Warming, inspriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto
narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.
The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).
From the property you and your guests can enjoy the very beautiful village setting of Carate Urio which features pretty lakefront vistas and imposing Villas and lush gardens. The village is ideally suited for those wanting a relaxed and wonderfully sedate base from which to explore the Lake at their leisure by car. Carate Urio has all the conveniences guest would require whilst on holiday with a bank, crockery store, pharmacy, post office and a fine selection of restaurants and bars all with 5 minutes from the property.
The romantic and star studded village of Laglio which features a local grocery store, Bank, Pharmacy, Restaurants and the famous resident of George Clooney is situated just a 5 minute’s drive away and the cosmopolitan city of Como which offers a wide choice of boutique designer and high street shopping as well as Lake Como attractions such as Villa Olmo and the Duomo can be reached by picturesque lakeside roads in just 15 minutes!
The beautiful 'Golden Triangle' town of Menaggio which also provides a frequent car and passenger ferry service to Varenna and Bellagio is also located along the Western shore and can be reached in 30 minutes.
