Bill, Katy, Jack and Charlie W. Dorking - UK, who stayed at Vista D'Oro Palma Apt. 5 in July 2014.
We both loved the Lake, especially Varenna, which had so much character. I would recommend that people go to Villa Monastero as well as whiling away the time at the quaint harbour in one of the restaurants. I would also recommend getting a boat pass to visit the other towns on the lake as it's a great way to explore. We also went to Lugano for a day trip, which was nice.
Regarding the apartment - it was stunning. The view was beautiful and we spent many an hour just admiring it. It was lovely to receive a bottle of bubbly and some nice bread too.
I thought your service was very good - friendly and prompt - which was great for us as we made a very late booking (the day before).

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, inspiring 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).
Guests can easily reach Varenna by car. The early Victorian part of Varenna provides a choice of lake view cafes, many fine villas and the famous and historical Castello di Vezio, which is situated on the Varenna hillside and which features frequent falconry displays and medieval re-enactments during the Summer through to Autumn time. A picturesque lakeside promenade takes guests along to the romantic medieval part of Varenna, which features medieval passageways, cobbled piazzas and ancient churches. There are many delightful restaurants and wine bars to enjoy as well as boutique craft shops to visit.
The car and passenger ferry as well as the Train service also operates from Varenna and Fiumelatte, providing guests with an enjoyable and care-free way of exploring Bellagio, Menaggio, other pretty Lake Como towns and also Milan.
A distinctive feature of Varenna is its mild climate; olive & cypress trees abound as well as many other variety's of lush, tropical plants, typical if the lake. Varenna enjoys abundant sunshine & warmth right into the evening. The International jet-set resort of St. Moritz is just 1.5 hours by car.
