We had a fabulous 2 weeks at Villa Isella in the summer holidays. The villa and grounds are beautifully kept, and as most of the apartments are privately owned, everyone there really cared about the gardens and grounds. My 12 year olds spent many hours...More

About the neighbourhood
Menaggio tourist office is situated in the main square and offers a great deal of information detailing what’s on in the lakes, sightseeing, history and sporting activities.

Menaggio has its own boat terminals for various trips around the lake which is ideal for travel to many of the other lakeside towns and places of interest. Buses run regularly to Lugano, Como & St Moritz from Piazza Garibaldi on the main waterfront if you wish to travel further afield.

During the summer the area boasts fantastic opportunities for many activities including mountain biking, cycling, horse riding , walking, fishing, tennis and many water sports including kite surfing & speedboat hire.
Getting around
Car is essential to reach our apartment. However public transport is a great way to get around the lake and surrounding areas.

Simply park your car along the lakeside and take a ferry or bus to explore lakeside towns and villages.

For Lake Como the nearest ferry is Menaggio (7k) and for Lake Lugano Porlezza (2km)

Parking spaces in Italy are marked white or blue. White is free parking and blue requires a ticket from nearby ticket machines - a few Euro's will allow you to park for most of the day.

Many low cost airlines fly directly to Milan’s airports (Malpensa, Linate, Bergamo), where you will easily pick up a rental car.

Either by Autostrada or A class roads, you will reach Lake Como in less than an hour and then travel along the amazing lake side road through the charming and traditional villages passing many of the grand aristocratic villas that the area is famous for.

You could drive from home in England , taking approximately one and a half days, stopping over in France or Switzerland on the way, before crossing the most beautiful mountain range in the world.

Or alternatively take a leisurely train journey - Eurostar to Paris sleeping overnight arriving in Milan the following day. From Milan you can easily get connection by train or bus to Malpensa airport where you...
