About the Area:
Lake Como (Lago di Como) is one of the famous Italian Lake destinations, just half an hour from noisy, bustling Milan, in the north of Italy. Lake Como is long (50km), slender and extremely deep. The southern end forks into two long 'legs', with the picturesque town of Bellagio situated on the promontory between them. Like the other Italian Lakes, Lake Como has been popular as a resort since the days of the Roman Empire. For centuries visitors have admired the blue lake waters and relaxed in luxurious villas in the wooded lakeside slopes above. Today, most of the scenic towns around the shores of Lake Como are popular for the wide variety of sports the lake area has to offer: wind surfing, swimming, water skiing, swimming and hand gliding.

First off I will say the location of the apartment could not be beat and the office was a tremendous help especially Viviana she was the best very very helpful and informative ,we absolutely loved Menaggio and after visiting the towns of bellaggio and Varrenna which were awesome as well ,we knew we had picked the best place with Menaggio ,less touristy great food and nice people we especially loved pizzeria Lugano good service very nice people and great food at reasonable prices ,we didn't care for our tour for the bernina express ,too much time on the bus and not enough on the train and I don't believe anyone on the tour liked the town of St Moritz ,as for the apartment itself it was quite sufficient for our needs although I would recommend someone meet you at the apartment initially just to go over a few simple things that would make check in a little less stressful ,like initially what door to go in and how to operate the keys although we figured it out it was quite stressful at first also how to operate a AC radio washing machine coffee maker and I would recommend if possible a dryer as the towel situation was scarce other than that I would highly recommend the apartment and certainly Menaggio it was a wonderful vacation thank you very much!
We rented La Piazza Menaggio from May 20-24 and had an absolutely wonderful experience. The apartment is in a perfect location for those without a car as it was an easy walk from the ferry to the rental office and then to the apartment. We were were always greeted by staff with warm enthusiasm. The apartment is on the third floor of a very quiet building and the elevator was very quick and convenient.
The apartment furnishings were very nice with stunning views from the master bedroom and the living room windows. We could see the river, mountains – even the Alps! We picked up some local meats, breads, cheeses and wine one evening and made a lovely dinner enjoyed by candlelight. The beds were comfortable and the two bathrooms a luxury. Being on one of the squares made it easy to pop out in the morning for a croissant & cappuccino or we could have breakfast at home.
Walking anywhere in the village was easy with outstanding views of the lake and mountains. We purchased an all-day boat ticket at the ferry office one day and visited Verenna, Bellagio, and Tremezzo – a perfect day. We explored Menaggio including a walking tour up to Loveno where we had a delicious lunch at the Hotel Royal. Mr. Colombo visited our table and even shared his home made lemon chutney with us! What a view from the upper hills of Menaggio! I would advise visitors to be sure to stop in at the tourist information center as they have great information about activities in the area!!
The local restaurants and bars were all very tasty and staff always friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed some wine tasting at Fusi & Sfusi where we filled up plastic liters of wine now and then at great prices – to take back to the apartment. We especially liked Osteria il Pozzo for dinner one evening. Actually, we did not have a bad dining experience anywhere we went.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who is visiting Lake Como. We thought of the villages in this area, Menaggio was the very best! It offers lots to do, just enough shopping but is not overwhelming at all. Thanks to the staff for such good, friendly service – we are already recommending you and this property to others. Feel free to use whatever you would like – first names only please.

Thank you for your message. We had a lovely holiday thank you – the office staff were very helpful on arrival and the apartment was perfectly located for what we wanted.
I am attaching one photo – which is of the kids rolling down one of the hills at the Villa Melzi in Belaggio. They had a brilliant time!
Our favorite trips were the walk around the suburbs of Bellagio that we got from tourist information, the walk around the old parts of Menaggio with the children's’ trail - again from tourist information, and climbing up to the castle at Varenna. We particularly love the little bakery in Menaggio that sells focaccia breads with peppers or tomatoes sliced on top – perfect for picnics.
I hope we will come back to the apartment again as it was exactly where we wanted to be – and remarkably quiet for being so central. Fingers crossed!
LA Piazza certainly lived up to our expectations and was exactly as displayed on the web site. Menaggio is a perfect location for touring in the Lake Como region and the ferry terminal is conveniently located to the apartment. The apartment was well appointed and clean. The welcome pack (including champagne) was great as was the welcome provided at the office. Our thanks to all the staff at Happy Holiday Homes and we will certainly recommend this property.
We enjoyed the location of Le Piazza Menaggio and the ferry service to Bellagio and boat rental. The parking was fine and all restaurants were good. My teenage boys especially had a great time after meeting Italian friends and going to clubs at night. We really enjoyed Menaggio and Lake Como and plan to return in the future.
Here are our thoughts on La Piazza Menaggio, which we rented from you for one week:
We located the property quite easily, and it was exactly as represented on your website. Everything was clean, and the appliances worked perfectly. Your team was most helpful in every way.
We do have one suggestion for improvement, and that is to make sure all the keys work easily in the locks. The lock to the downstairs (outside) door was very difficult to open, and one set of our keys was also difficult to use in opening the front door of the residence.
Our favorite restaurants included Ristorante di Paolo and La Baita for dinners, and a smaller restaurant (La Trattoria di Nogara) that offered free wifi along with very nice food and good service.
If we return to Lake Como, we will most certainly ask for your help in locating a residence.
Thank you for your help.
I have emailed Harold separately, but would like to thank you for our wonderful stay at La Piazza. Our stay was very comfortable & enjoyable & certainly will be recommending it to anyone interested in holidaying in Lombardy.
We enjoyed our stay in La Piazza and found it to be in the most perfect location. The directions that were given made it easy to find your office in Menaggio as well as La Piazza itself. The apartment was close to everything yet was quiet in the evenings to allow a good night's sleep. The wonderfully comfortable beds and high standard of bed linens added to our comfort. La Piazza was absolutely spotless and the furniture was quite nice. Staying in Menaggio was a great choice...busy enough to have everything you might need close by and yet not as 'touristy' as some of the other towns.

Thanks for your help in booking La Piazza Menaggio, and for the very welcome Prosecco! We found the property easily and loved it's central and convenient location. It was very comfortable with lovely views and decor. We were only in the Lakes for 3 nights so it was just a taster of the area during a longer trip in Italy. I'm sure our activities (Varenna, Bellagio, Carlotta) were nothing out of the ordinary, but they were very enjoyable.
Thanks again and I hope that we'll return to this lovely part of the world again soon, and would certainly consider renting from you if we do.
I would first like to express my thanks for the assistance we received during our stay. All the staff were polite, enthusiastic, and helpful.Booking was relatively easy. The pre-arrival instructions were particularly helpful. I greatly appreciated the inclusion of photos (e.g., your office; the entry to the building where the apartment was; the approach to the garage).The property was particularly well located for a visitor to Menaggio. The apartment was quite spacious, and certainly adequate for our requirements. I found the village of Menaggio quite attractive and enjoyable. It has a wonderful, lake-side location, enhanced by the snow-capped moutains towering above it. I liked sitting in the main square and watching the locals; and walking through the narrow, sometimes dark, village streets. Probably the highlight for us was finding our way to the Chiesetta, perched on a high spur just south of the village. We enjoyed its peacefulness, and the spectacular views to the village and the lake. We also very much enjoyed the agriturismo restaurant recommended by Andrea, a few minutes' drive up into the hills behind Menaggio. We also had a lovely drive to Lake Lugano. It was a clear winter's day, and the reflection of snow capped mountains and village buildings on the silver water of the lake was spectacular.
As you can tell, we very much enjoyed our time in Menaggio.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in La Piazza Menaggio & found the service provided by Lake Como Homes excellent.
I was very impressed by the emails received with instructions & directions prior to arrival. All directions were perfect & made it very easy to find both the office & the apartment. The apartment itself was fantastic. The location could not be better, right on the square, yet it certainly wasn't noisy for us. La Piazza Menaggio is very modern & comfortable, and completely equipped with everything you need. It is great that there were 2 bathrooms & the apartment was spotlessly clean, with plenty of towels available. (However there was only 1 shower, as it wasn't suitable to shower in the downstairs bathroom, but this was not a problem for us)
We attended a wedding while we were there, so some of the wedding party (who were staying in a local hotel) visited us to see the apartment. Everyone agreed that it was fantastic & some people said they would like to return to Menaggio & stay in an apartment like La Piazza Menaggio. (Especially given the fact that some of the local hotels are quite expensive, yet the rooms are not very modern). The book in the apartment from Lake Como Homes was very good for telling us about everything to do in the area & also what needed to be done on leaving the apartment & where to leave the key. All in all, we were very happy with the apartment & the service provided by Lake Como Homes. I would highly recommend your company to anyone visiting Lake Como.
(We passed the office a few times during our stay & there was always a lovely dog inside the office, he is beautiful!)
We thought Menaggio was great with your accommodation and its location great.
We would recommend your accommodation quite happily.
