We were in the late spring of 2014 in this apartment and we had a wonderful time at the Lago di Como. The apartment has a lot of atmosphere and comfort and is very complete with furniture, kitchen equipment, smart TV and Apple TV. After reading a previous review I guess the new owners did a very good job renovating the apartment.
The location of the apartment is a bit outside the village of Pianello del Lario and it has a awesome panoramic view over the lake. We enjoyed drinking a Prosecco on the balcony and see what’s going on at the lake.
There are some good restaurants nearby the apartment on the lake shore and on walking distance down the hill there is a mini-market and a very good bakery. Menaggio is about 10 minutes drive by car, it’s a bit more touristic, but there are also good restaurants and terraces to have an aperitivo (try Aperol Spritz !).
From Menaggio you can take the ferry to Bellagio or Varenna. All three places are great starting points... more
