Historic vacation home in Menaggio
The house for rent is 400 years old (completely and comfortably renovated in 2002) and is situated in the historic Castello above Menaggio, on Lake Como just across Bellagio and Varenna. It is a bridge over a pebble stone road, a short five minute walk down to the center of Menaggio. The house has two floors and a privte parking below. On the first floor is the kitchen, dining area and the living room (with an additional sofa bed for 2) with a walkout balcony and fireplace. The second floor has a master bedroom, a second bedroom (with a single bed that turns into a double) and a bathroom with bath/shower, wc and bidet. Traffic is restricted so the house is very quiet with a great Lake View. It is "suspended" above the road, and it has a small balcony. But under the bridge you can access the terraced garden, where an area is reserved to guests as a sundeck or to work or read, or where you can cook, BBQ and dine. The garden is occasionally shared wth other guests, but the outside kitchen is reserved for you. House is ideal for who travels by public transportation. Menaggio is very well served by buses and boats and a main train line is just across the Lake, in Varenna, 15 minutes away by ferry.

The house for rent is located in Menaggio, on the western shore of Lake Como about mid lake, just 15 min. by ferry from Bellagio and Varenna. Menaggio is one of the most important towns on Lake Como and has been a tourist attraction for hundreds of years. From Menaggio central location, one can easily navigate the whole lake by public boats. Bellagio and Varenna are only a short boat ride away. Lugano, in Switzerland is only 15 miles away, well served by public transportation.

The owner is a US born of Italian Origin resident, with a thorough knowledge of the Lake and its surroundings. He is glad to spend all the time needed with guests to help them planning their hikes, boat trips, shopping trips or simple sightseeing. He also assists with full info on travel to reach Menaggio and picks up guests with no car at the bus or the ferry.
