*** Reviews ~
I wanted to thank you for all that you did to make our stay at Menaggio Castello -Secondo such a fabulous experience. Your attention and service was wonderful, and we will certainly recommend Happy Holiday Homes. I can only hope that I will be back some day.The above review submitted by Eileen - USA, who stayed at Menaggio Castello Secondo 2nd September 2014.
I have to say I found everyone at your office to be incredibly helpful and efficient especially when we were frantically searching for something last minute. Lydia in particular, who I think maybe based in the UK office was also very prompt to reply to my emails and immediately took charge when I was panicking looking for a place last minute.
Al the information, directions complete with pictures were fantastic and made arriving extremely easy.The apartment lived up to it's photos. Unfortunately we do not have any of our own photos to add.
So all in all I think your service was impeccable.
The only thing I would say, and this has nothing to do but rather a suggestion for the owners. While they provide a fully stocked kitchen in terms of cooking equipment there were no basic condiments to cook with such as cooking oil, salt, pepper, coffee, just a few basic items like that would have helped considerable.
While I agree most people eat out most of the time, there was the odd night we wanted to eat in and just enjoy the view from the house and no-one who is travelling by car is likely to be carrying such equipment.
We have always come across such items in other properties both in Europe and the UK.
Other than that one small comment I found your company and service to be excellent and would highly recommend you to anyone.

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).
The location is very convenient for exploring the famous Lakeside town of Menaggio and all the local amenities are just a 5 minute's walk away down the cobbled paths which lead from the Castle. Amenities include Supermarkets, Cafes, Restaurants, Boutique shops, Children's park, Public beach and swimming, local Cinema and a convenient Ferry and Bus service.
Tennis courts are located a 3 minute's drive in the Menaggio hillside town of Loveno and the world famous Menaggio and Cadenabbia Golf course is just a 5 minute's drive away also, and is a must for Golfers!
Further Sport & Adventure Activities:
Bicycling, Bike Rentals, Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Fishing, Float Plane/Helicopter, Golf, Hiking/Trails, Park, Public Transportation, Rowing Boats,Sailing and Wind Surfing.
There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course.

Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.
Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).
This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.
There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.
There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.
The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
