*** Reviews:-

We had an absolutely wonderful holiday - Lake Como is simply stunning and we were constantly in awe of its beauty. Thank you for making everything so easy for us. L'Isola was a lovely apartment with a beautiful view. It was clean and comfortable and everything worked fine. Your directions were spot on and we had no problem finding the keys.

We were in Lake Como for a wedding so that was probably our main holiday highlight! But after that the best thing we did was hire a boat and explore the lake. We found an excellent place in Osuccio near the bottom of Via G Castelli - I can't remember the name of the place but the guy who hired us the boat was called Mino and was really nice. We took the boat between 6-8pm and it was the perfect time to go. We had a lovely sunset and it felt like we had the lake to ourselves. I had a swim in a slightly secluded area and the water was just beautiful!

We enjoyed some wonderful meals particularly on the waterfront in Lenno. We ate at the Lido and also at Bar Sport. On our first night, we had a lovely meal at Il Cris - who were conveniently open quite late for when we arrived (might be worth mentioning to future guests). We spent one day by the pool, which was lovely, and also took a trip to Como and went up the funicular railway. The views at the top were simply breathtaking.

Thank you for all your help - from the initial enquiries we made, to that quick call to confirm the location of the communal swimming pool(!), to the instructions for leaving the property, everything went like a dream. I hope we left the property as we found it.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend HHH and L'Isola apartment. Thank you so much - we had such a lovely time we didn't really want to leave!!

The Lombardy 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, 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).

Lenno

From the house you can easily walk to the beautiful beach in the small village of Ossuccio, and take in the view of the island of Comacina as well as taking a water taxi to the Island to dine at the infamous Locanda restaurant.

The property is also 30 minutes from Como by car, and 20 minutes from Menaggio and Bellagio.

It is also an ideal starting point for walks up into the mountains or for visiting the historical and fascinating sites in and around the village.

OCSSUCCIO:

The lovely town of Ossuccio, one of the best starting points for mountain walks, or boats trips on the lake, especially around the beautiful island of Isola Comacina, which you can explore by boat. Why not book a meal at the only restaurant on the island only 2 mins. away away by boat.

Ossuccio enjoys a sunny aspect on the west side of the lake and is ideally situated to visit all parts of the lake. The lake side garden here, in the heart of the village is just 10 minutes walk from your accommodation and is popular for sunbathing, enjoying a drink, sunbathing or taking a dip in the lake! Restaurants, bars and a bank can all be found in the village.

Lenno (Villa Balbianello-James Bond) with the water ferry accessing all parts of the lake is just 3 mins drive with supermarket.Villa Carlotta (Tremezzo) with it's majestic gardens is just a short drive and Bellagio is only a water taxi or ferry ride away!

"Up a steep hill, but the views make the climb worth while"

The photos of L'Isola don't really do it justice. It's a very nicely appointed apartment with two good sized bedrooms and a lovely shower room (there isn't a bath). The kitchen had… More
