“Absolute perfection”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I was fortunate enough to be able to stay at this gorgeous villa with my (now) husband and our parents and siblings in early September. We were getting married at Villa Balbianello in Lenno and had been looking for a while for suitable accommodation for the 10 of us which would be in easy walking distance of one of the towns on the lake given that we were not planning on hiring a car. We definitely picked the right place for our stay!

We were looked after throughout the whole booking process and during our stay by Louise and Laura who manage the rental of the property. They kept in touch all the way up to our arrival and during our stay to make sure that we were provided with any information we needed, making suggestions as to what we could do during our stay and answering all questions we had. To demonstrate how helpful they were, we were due to arrive on a Sunday and had asked whether the supermarkets in Menaggio would be open that day. They confirmed they would be closed but if we provided them with a list of what we needed, they would arrange to buy these items so that we had what we needed to see us through the initial day until the supermarkets re-opened. They also recommended a private chef to cater our wedding dinner back at the villa and we cannot thank them enough for this as the meal was one to remember! Both Louise and Laura also arranged to meet us at the villa upon arrival to introduce themselves and to talk us through everything we needed to know about the villa. Furthermore, they both took time out of their day to come and see us leaving for our wedding and to wish us well and Louise returned the night before we departed to see how the wedding had gone and to finalise the arrangements for our departure. They are both a credit to the villa and its owners. Rest assured, you will be well looked after if you stay there!

The villa itself is sensational! We only stayed on the marina floor (which sleeps 12) and, although I thought I knew what to expect from the photos I had previously seen, nothing prepared me for the view as I stepped into the living area. There is a huge floor to ceiling window ahead of you and all you can see is the stunning sight of the lake beyond the terrace. It was a real “wow” moment! The villa is modern and comfortable and spotlessly clean. The whole place has a light and airy feel to it and has a wonderful contemporary look. The kitchen is particularly well equipped with everything you could need. We all felt like celebrities staying in such a gorgeous place. There was more than enough room for everybody and the outdoor space is superb with two small, covered terraces which are, turn, attached to the main terrace. There are ample sun loungers and seating on the terrace and a fabulous hot tub too. The villa is right on the lake and the views are just unbelievable. We were fortunate that the weather was amazing during our stay and we spent every day out on the terrace.

As far as location is concerned, it is a pleasant 15 minute walk into Menaggio and you can catch the ferry from there to many other places on the lake. There is also a bus stop outside the villa too and the villa also has bicylces at your disposal (although we didn’t use them for fear of someone falling and having an accident just before the wedding!). There is a supermarket on the way into Menaggio which has everything you could need and Menaggio itself has lots of lovely little cafes, shops and restaurants.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Navalia to anyone looking for suitable accommodation in the Menaggio area. It is the perfect base for those wanting to get out and explore other towns around the lake but who still want to take time to relax and enjoy the views and (hopefully) good weather in luxurious surroundings.

“This was everything we expected!”

We booked the whole Villa for 18 people to stay and it met all our needs admirably. The Villa was spotlessly clean and when we did have a problem it was attended to without a problem. The beds are very comfortable and the showers work beautifully. We celebrated some Big "O" birthdays and used the personal chef on recommendation from the Villa and it was over and above our expectations. The weather for the evening was perfect, (Just as we ordered!!) Would of used the chef more if we were better organised. The bikes provided by the Villas were very useful and we had some fun rides. On recommendation by the Manager we also went to Locanda Del Isola Comancina restaurant and had another wonderful night. I would highly recommend Villa Navalia. Great location and easy walk to Menaggio.

“Spacious Villa with Beautiful View”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My husband and I stayed one week in Villa Navalia with four other married couples. The interior of the villa is very spacious and comfortable. Each bedroom is a very good size with comfortable beds (also good size...we are tall Americans) and so are the bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped and the living area accommodated the ten of us very well. The villa is exactly as it is depicted in the photos--I mean, exactly--no surprises! Everything still has a "new" look...very clean also.

The deck overlooking the lake is just perfect; however, due to cooler than normal temperatures and a great deal of rain I only spent a couple of hours one afternoon enjoying it.

The first two days we did not have vehicles but the villa is close enough to Menaggio to walk. Again, unfortunately we were walking in the rain quite often! Extra umbrellas were available in the villa which helped. Once we had the rental vehicles, we also took a side trip to St. Mortiz which is less than a two-hour drive.

Villa La Gaeta (last scene of Casino Royale with Daniel Craig was filmed there) can be seen from the deck and is a short walk from the villa. This may not be of interest to everyone; however, my husband is a James Bond fan!

The only thing that I would have changed is the weather and, of course, that was not possible. With the cool, rainy weather it did get a bit too cold in the villa for most of us but there was plenty of hot water for showers. Drying our clothes became a problem also. The villa has a washer but no dryer. With the rain outdoors we had to bring the clothes racks inside...some clothes took three days to dry.

Because of our experience with the weather in the latter part of May, I would recommend that anyone stay here in the summer. Perhaps spring may be too unpredictable.

“A beautiful villa with amazing views of Lake Como.”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I stayed at the villa as part of a 'hen week-end'. It is a very large villa with a penthouse 'flat' available. The whole villa was beautifully presented in a minimalist style, with a very well equipped kitchen and beautiful en-suite bathrooms. The views of the Lake were fabulous and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The owner/manager couldn't have been more helpful in providing food, information and any help we required. I'd recommend this villa for large groups. So much space!
