We are now back in Australia and happy to report we loved our time at Lake Como.
We dropped in at your office on the way to the property and received great attention from Danilo. The emailed instructions as to how to get to the flat were fantastic and essential as we left the main road far behind us. The view from our flat was gorgeous way up the hill above the lake. We had a slight hiccup on the first day when we tripped the safety circuit with the toaster and did not know where to find the relevant fuse box, but luckily a helpful neighbor assisted us.
Otherwise the property was very comfortable and well looked after.
We left some washing detergent and toilet paper for the next tenants.
If we are ever able to come and stay again in the Lake Como area, we would be happy to book somewhere to stay with happy Holiday Homes again.
Thank you very much for our lovely holiday.

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 town has a number of historic landmarks to visit including The Museum of "La Raccolta della Barca Lariana which has a nautical theme, housing hundreds of 19th century boats depicting the nautical history of the area.

We loved the place. I rearranged the furniture to put the small couch behind the dining table so we could have extra seats and enjoy the view. Great place in Como. Perfect. Parking, view, privacy,Green space. Amenities were good too, We have stayed at Como before so we knew what view we wanted. This was great. Communications: The rental agents answered most questions. After the rental we received tons of helpful info...and there were mulitple communications. Plus they had a local office. I would not recommend the sofa bed. We had trouble with celing fans (battery) and some appliances. Being American, we would have liked more ice trays or an ice maker. Overal it was well equipped. We enjoyed the stay and would rent form this company and the house again. Check in was a breeze. Check out was a breeze.
