Guido's apartment has the most gorgeous view one could ask for. We enjoyed our evenings cooking dinner and sipping wine on the balcony overlooking the lake and mountains. The town below the apartment is so quaint and lovely too. 100% worth checking out! - a great pizzeria, beautiful little alley ways to explore on down to the lake, and fishermen on their handmade wooden seats. No other tourist around was a huge bonus.
Menaggio was just a short drive away. We found groceries there, a cute town to stroll around, an amazing visitor center full of information, and exceptional hikes out of the town. We especially enjoyed the hike out of Piamuro to the waterfall as well as the hike to Rifugio de Menaggio with a mandatory visit to the outlook Pizzo Coppa. (Sidenote: If you have a car for sure pay the toll to drive up the road past Breglia.) Also not to miss is a canyoning excursion with Lake Como Adventures, just 25 minutes away from the apartment.
We couldn't have asked for a more ideal location.
