** Hello to everyone at Happy holiday homes, with regard to your email asking for feedback on Bella Romantica Apt 8.
First of all we had a brilliant holiday, and would like to thank you all for making it possible.
Lake Como is such a beautiful setting it's hard not to have fantastic time.
Apt 8 was excellent, set in a wonderful villa, with enclosed parking secured by electronically controlled gates and a fantastic view over the lake.
The rooms of the apartment were well furnished and tastefully decorated, and of a good size.
The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed, as was the beautifully tiled bathroom.
There was a fully equipped laundry room in the basement with new washing machines and tumble dryers.
The entire villa looks to have been recently refurbished to a very high standard, with all appliances looking new, everything was clean and fresh, and a very nice place to be.
The extensive gardens were in the process of being finished, with new plants and small trees, which will look absolutely stunning in a very short time, probably finished by the time I type this.
There is also a large barbecue in the garden.
The villa is literally a stones throw from the lake, set in a small peaceful area with the Restaurant Vapore just a two minute walk away, so excellent food was close at hand if wanted.
The ferry stop is a couple of minutes walk away, from which you can explore the entire lake without the hassle of driving, definitely the best way of getting round the lake.
I would recommend this villa to everyone, it was wonderful.
We only visited the Happy holiday homes office in Menaggio once but found the staff very helpful and friendly, The whole process of booking the villa was very easy, and the level of communication from Happyholidayhomes was brilliant, with very clear and easy to follow instructions from how to find the villa and gain access, to tips on where to go and what to do.
When I return to Italy ( not if ! )
You will be the first people I contact for accommodation, and I will recommend you to anyone who will listen to me.
I will forward some photographs to you as soon as I have them sorted.
Thank you very much,

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:
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, in spriing 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).
