Thank you for all the help we received from your company when we booked Terrazza Elegante for the week 6th to 13th September.
The property was great and we enjoyed meeting Laura. Laura was a great owner and gave us loads of information. She was helpful but very discreet.
We had a GREAT holiday in a beautiful apartment. We had some difficulty finding the villa as we arrived VERY late due to the Italian Strike, uckily we got seats on the afternoon flight but we arrived in the dark !!! What a pleasure it was to walk into such a lovely place.
Thank you to everyone.
First of all thanks to Sara for her time and lovely coffee on Sunday afternoon!! I think you have a lovely office and a great atmosphere very positive.
We thought the house was lovely, even down to the individual decor of each bedroom and the finishing touches, please thank Laura, we did leave quite a bit of food and drink in the fridge/kitchen but we hope it was all used up, we didn't want to just throw it all away.
The property was fairly easy to find, the photographs of the steps were a great help, keys accessible, the owner Laura introduced herself the first night we got there and was helpful with regard to restaurants in the village. Just one thing your description doesn't include (I don't think) is that there are people living above you.
The view and the terrace make the place fantastic!
From the quality of our property, I have no hesitation in recommending your properties around the lake if they are all of a similar quality. Thank you once again for the wine, and for your hospitality.
I wanted to thank the Lake Como Homes for the great vacation and time we had spending in the Terrazza Elegante.
The house was well equipped, clean and provided all required amenities.
The view was outstanding.
The area is a great place for traveling and all Menaggio team recommendations where very good, especially renting a boat for a private tour in the Como lake.
Being in many places my family and I do not recall when we enjoyed so much from the facility and the organization.
We are still reviewing the 1500 pictures we took, we would send some shortly.
The directions to the house, the parking recommendations where accurate and helpful, only suggestion is to add directions if coming from the north of the lake as well (as we did in the first time).
Thank you and hope to have the pleasure of working with you again.
