Villa Menaggio was a perfect choice for the six of us. We were all comfortable and very happy with the lakeside location. Martina and her husband were perfect hosts and were there to greet us and occasionally let one of us in the gate when we showed up without one of the 2 keys. For six, I would recommend a third key. We may have started the day off together but came home at different times. Everything in the villa was fine. Elevator was a plus for sure. Lakeside location was a dream with the bonus sunny lawn seating and outside dining.
Danilo was amazing. He greeted us and sat with us with a map and discussed our whole week. He gave us the location of the bakery, grocery stores and made a water and wine delivery for us that he knew we never could have carried home. I am sorry he faced 6 very tired women who really just needed to get their shoes off and have a good meal. He suggested we take a Lake ride the first day and arranged all with Davida in your boat. It was the most wonderful day ever. More than perfect and a wonderful opportunity for picture taking as well as relaxing and getting to know the “lay of the land”. We all cannot say enough about Davida. He was full of knowledge, kept us all head turning at the sites and was so patient and willing to deliver us and wait while we had a wonderful lakeside lunch.
All but me took your bus trip to St. Moritz with the Alps train ride. (I have been in Switzerland before). They all enjoyed the day and loved the experience.
I truly have no suggestions to improve what you do with your service. You did teach me a very valuable lesson. In the future I would never hesitate to literally throw my trip into your hands and let you pick me up at arrival, plan several excursions and happily just enjoy myself. It would be a dream to return and stay longer.
I am enclosing a few photos. And sending a copy of this email to Danilo just to make sure he knows we appreciate his efforts. And please thank Davida as well.
We are now back in Australia and would like to let you know how much we all enjoyed Villa Menaggio. Prior to arriving there, we were so impressed with return emails whenever we made enquiries about buses, trains and various methods of getting to Menaggio. There were 7 of us all coming from different destinations and you patiently replied to all of us and even transferred us to the villa when we arrived at your office in Menaggio! (after giving us a welcome cup of coffee). The villa was amazing and the owners great to deal with. We loved the space in the villa and enjoyed the outdoor area each evening. The extra large kitchen was a bonus. especially having 7 of us staying. We were close to everything and enjoyed some amazing walks.
Thanks again – we will certainly recommend you to our friends.
Lake Como is the most beautiful awe inspiring places I have ever been and you are the most efficient travel company I have ever used. Thank you for being so helpful and informing us about every aspect of the trip.
We loved our stay at Villa Menaggio. It was perfect for our family vacation of three generations. The Villa Menaggio was very clean and spacious. The location was perfect. We enjoyed being able to walk into town for the ferry and loved being right on the waterfront with the beautiful views. We also enjoyed the family swimming pools that are within walking distance. Not having to rent a car for our vacation was an added bonus. Even the supermarket was within walking distance. It was a pleasure to have our hosts, Martina and Walter on site. They assisted us with any minor problems and shared with us the history of their lovely home. They were very gracious hosts in every way.
Thank you to all of your staff for their assistance in choosing Villa Menaggio. Lydia was especially helpful with supplying information and I appreciate her prompt and courteous responses to all of my questions. Danilo made arrangements for a wonderful chef to cook a delicious meal for us in the Villa. Since we were traveling with small children, this was a special treat. It was a very lovely evening and one of the highlights of our trip. A special thank you to Harold for helping us with transporting luggage to the ferry on the morning of our departure. I highly recommend Happy Holiday Homes for renting a vacation villa. Everything was as promised and they were truly a pleasure to do business with.
We hope to one day come back and visit the beautiful Lake Como region.
I wanted to let you know that we checked out today from Villa Menaggio. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the house very much - it was perfect in every way. The hosts were wonderful and we loved Menaggio.
Thank you for everything - we hope to return some day.
Thank you so much for the kind hospitality during our stay.
Villa Menaggio was wondeful, your kindness even better. We will always have special memories of our stay here. It was great to meet your family!
We had the most fantastic time here at Villa Menaggio and our daughter's wedding. We hope to return again!
First class accommodation in a first class location. With breathtaking scenery and fabulous food and wine. Friendly and helpful hosts.. what a week! Can't wait to return when it is maybe not so hot.
Thank you for your kind hospitality; we have greatly enjoyed our stay here. The house and garden are lovely. We greatly enjoyed being able to eat family style both on the patio and in the kitchen. Thank you!
We got married June 18th at Villa Balbianello. Our two families stayed in two houses in Menaggio. This house was by far the centerpeice of our stay.
Thank you for making our our family wedding extraordinary!
At last, we have found the most beautiful house ever!
Lake Como and the surrounding areas have given us life lasting memories.
Thanks to you, Danilo who has given us some extra kilos around the waist!
Many thanks for a lovely stay in your beautiful house at this wonderful place - Menaggio!
A great spot to celebrate 60+60 birthdays with good food and wine on the terrace!
We had an incredible week at Villa Menaggio. Unfortunately it was just too short. The location was great; being able to walk out the front gate in the morning and have cappucino and a brioche overlooking the lake was only outdone by the opportunity to have a few beers watching Euro 2012 only a few steps from our front door. I would respectfully disagree with Rick Steve's who suggests staying in Varenna. Both Varenna and Bellagio are great side trips, but we found Menaggio to offer more variety in eating, shopping and relaxing. We have already referred a friend who saw our photos and heard our stories and was ready to pack his bags and leave.
