*** Reviews ~
We look back on a great stay in Vila Mimosa. It is a wonderfully comfortable home, beautifully situated with breathtaking views over Lake Como.
3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms was great, since we used the Vila. 2 adult children and supporters
Everything cleaned fine, we were even surprised by the huge gift basket with groceries and necessities that we found in a perfectly equipped kitchen. Congratulations and our thanks. Great!
The reception was fine, nothing but praise. Because we took a boat we needed on arrival, some extra time this was not a problem. A warm welcome.
We most enjoyed the nature and boating on the lake, of course. The many opportunities to make and use on a terrace in one of the traditional villages, a coffee or lunch was top. In addition, our favorite place to moor and bring the village of Varenna, on the other side. Lot of hours was So atmospheric and picturesque, we will certainly go back.
We will most likely come back to Lake Como, in which case we would like to use your services again. We will also recommend the Happy Holiday Homes we know Como vacationers.
The above review was translated from Dutch and was submitted by Familie Bongers, who stayed at Villa Mimosa on 12th July 2014.
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).
The centre of Menaggio boasts many local amenities which will appeal to self-catering holiday makers including supermarkets, bakery, delicatessens, cafes and restaurants. The Lake view Piazza and promenade are a great joy to investigate and there are many things to enjoy and try such as the local ice-cream, boat rentals, shopping at the boutique shops, the popular Lido with its swimming pools, restaurant, park and volley ball, the mini golf and the frequent Ferry which leaves the town regularly for the other tourist towns of Varenna, Bellagio, the western Lakeshore towns and Como city.
Menaggio is a picturesque village nestled in a convenient central position on the lake. It is a historical lake side town with many quaint neighbourhoods which extend north along the lake and up into the green hills and valleys. Menaggio offers stunningly beautiful views of Lake Como and the majestic mountains which surround it overlooked by the Alps to the North.
There is a fine selection of restaurants, delis, fresh grocers and of course delicious gelato and pizza! To keep you moving and fit while on vacation: play a round of golf at the infamous Menaggio & cadenabbia Golf Club, mini golf, hiking trails, mountain biking, free climbing, swimming and a new orienteering field all located in stunning locations -these are just a few possibilities offered to you in and around Menaggio. There is a museum dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci at the new “Lido Giardino” and in the Val Senagra Park, a museum featuring the value of antique buildings, artisan and peasant objects and creations. Other culturally rich events including music, fireworks, public markets and local festivals are to be enjoyed.
Menaggio’s tourist office www.menaggio.com, situated in the main square, Piazza Garibaldi, offers a great deal of information detailing what’s going on in and around the lakes, sightseeing, history and sporting activities.
During the summer the area boasts fantastic opportunities for many activities including mountain biking, cycling, horse riding, walking, many water sports including kite surfing, fishing, tennis, and of course golf at the historic Mennagio & Cadenabbia Golf Club www.menaggio.it.The Ferries run from Menaggio to both the North and South of Lake Come making it an ideal centre for sightseeing. The lovely lakeside and harbour have many cafes where you can sit and relax while watch the world go by.
Outdoor activities abound in this area and are very popular with holiday makers. An18 hole golf course, mountain biking, water skiing and lots of other sports are all here to be enjoyed by you and your family.
