Menaggio was the first place we visited in Italy and the welcome we received at the office was just lovely. They were really helpful and gave us great directions to Al Pontile, as well as other useful info. The location was great (couldn't get closer to the ferry) and our worries about the noise level in the mornings was soon dispelled as we couldn't hear a thing. The accommodation was fine, though the shower in the bath was a bit short for me, let alone my husband who is over 6ft. No complaints though, it was all great.
My favourite little spot was Varenna - full of charm and less people than Bellagio. Visited 2 villas while in Varenna (Villa Cipressi & Villa Monastero) both were lovely. Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio was great. It was a guided tour of the park rather than a tour of the villa but gave gorgeous views of the lake. The guide was really lovely. The other villa we visited was Villa Carlotta - well worth it as you get a look at both the garden and the villa.
We had a couple of meals at Bar Costantin which was really great. The locals seemed to enjoy it as well which is always a good sign. Very good value for your money, quick service and lovely food/atmosphere.
We will be back!!!!

We had a great time, good apartment in a good location. The shower was a bit annoying as it was too low for me. You might also want to tell people where the nearest outdoor rubbish/recycling areas are so they can empty bins themselves as they go during the week, otherwise bags are sitting in the kitchen all week.
See you guys again in September for our wedding. Also you probably have quite a few bookings from our wedding party at this stage, we keep giving them your details... We're just waiting for the kickback you're going to give us! :-)
I have just returned from our holiday and I was going to send you an email anyway to say how much we enjoyed staying at At Pontile. I will most definitely recommend it to friends and family in Australia and the UK and hope to be able to return myself sometime. I haven't had chance to look at my photos yet but I will send you any that I think are good. Did I see in your brochure that you have a one bedroom apartment for sale in the same building for 165,00 euros?
I also want to say we really enjoyed the day trip to St Moritz which you organized for us. Julia the tour guide on the bus was extremely good - we learnt heaps of things about the history of the area, the food and wines - it was very informative. We were lucky as it had rained the day before which meant fresh snow in the Alps so the scenery was stunning.
Al Pontile was such a good choice for us and thank you so much for recommending it. Menaggio is such a perfect base on Lake Como I cannot think of another location I would rather be in.
Perhaps you can help me with one question I meant to ask while in Italy. What is the correct way of saying bruschetta ? Is it a soft ch sound or a hard c sound? (like brusketta)?
Best wishes, Christine, Australia
The location was great, especially being above the grocery store and right at the ferry dock.
The apartment, in general, was quite good. It was a nice size and had a good layout. The décor was nice, the views were good and it was easy to find. Your directions were good. The staff at Lake Como Homes were extremely helpful to us. They were very responsive to all our requests. Lake Como was certainly a beautiful area and we did enjoy our week there.
