We just arrived home rom our month in Italy...after Lake Como, we spent one week in Naples, 2 weeks in Sicily... and i wanted to tell you that our stay at Managgio Fantastico rental was wonderfful... the apartment was perfect, great, spacious, convenient location... the home was well equipped and comfortable... i just wanted to let you know that this was a great week or me and my family...thank you to you and your managing company (Happy Homes) for this.
Our April with you at Lake Como was a dream vacation. We love to imagine that we could be your guest again someday soon. Menaggio Fantastico was a perfect place to be. Initially, Harold, you said if we chose that apartment we would feel "the luckiest people on the Lake." Indeed, that was 100% true. What a happy time!
Now for favorite things to do:
1.) Every day I wanted to ride the boats. Truly, it wouldn't matter where, just ride. I think it was because of seeing so much and feeling as if I'd stepped back in time to an era when riding the boats was how one got around.
Usually the outing would include lunch in another town and visiting some shops, which I'll come back to in a minute.
Go for walks or hikes:
a.) Our very favorite hike was up to the Shrine above town and La Crocetta, taking along a light picnic lunch. We did this twice.
b.) Next favorite: Villa Sebelloni, in Bellagio. This walk is in the Rockefeller Estate (entry fee) which is a long, mostly uphill walk with a guide leading the way. Her office is in the square tower which is to the back right corner of the plaza, as one faces the Church in Bellagio. The views in every direction are magnificent.
c.) Another really nice walk was around Lago Piano, a very rural walk which goes through a bird sanctuary. This was another "step back in time", which was quite other worldly. This walk is # 7, described in the brochure "A Piedi nei Dintorni di Menaggio", which the English speaking lady at the tourist center downstairs provided. She was very helpful to us.
d.) Twice we hiked around the upper town. Twice we walked about 3 miles along the road (very scary in places) to the north of Menaggio, riding the bus back.
Our usual plan for the day included lunch at a restaurant. We didn't often eat out at night.
1.) La Punta in Bellagio. Walk up hill past the Villa Serbelloni Hotel, perhaps a mile from the boat dock, to the very tip of the peninsula.
2.) We went to the Tuesday market in Lenno three times. In Lenno, go to the end of the market. Turn right, going past the ancient Baptistery, to the a parallel street where the Market continues. Turn right. About where the Market ends, on the right side of the street is a rather plain looking restaurant with a 10 Euro fixed menu near the door. Inside, turn left to go downstairs. It was so much fun to dine in what looked like an ancient wine cellar that we kept coming back...but I don't know the name of the restaurant.
3.) The yummiest food for the price was at the restaurant at Villa Carlotta.
4.) We went to Red Bay many times including my 70th birthday lunch.
5.) Chic and Freak's was another place we especially liked. Our first meal in Menaggio was on their terrace, and we came back often.
In Varenna, along the water, Giorgio's shop, which sells jewelry and minerals was one we came back to over and over again. Can't remember the name of the place, but the walk-way goes through a covered area which is part of his shop. He has a few unusual items outside in this area to alert you that you've found an interesting place.
Places not to be missed:
1.) Villa Carlotta
2.) Rockefeller Estate
Good advice for Americans arriving at Malpensa:
Take the train as you, Harold, directed. But it is the second stop where you change trains. Having made the change, go to the third stop which has the name Como (Lago) in it. Instead of taking the bus to Menaggio, take the rapido boat. The initial trip to Menaggio will be far less harrowing than riding the bus.
And finally, for Andrea:
The van which you arranged for the 6 of us to take to Malpensa was a perfect solution since we needed to arrive at the airport so early. Our driver came exactly on time, and although it was raining very hard, we got to the airport in plenty of time. Bravo!
For Bryan and George:
Thank you for your services. I did 4 paintings, only so-so, from the upstairs terrace after you brought me a stool to stand on. Thank you also for stocking the apartment with extra books. We read several.
Pictures to share:
I am doing several big pictures from my photos right now. One, from La Crocetta, looks promising. When it's finished, if it looks as pretty as I hope it will, I'll email you a shot of it. I hope I am capturing a perfect day in a perfect place, when we were all perfectly happy and content with the world.
Thank you for making our April such a delight.
