The house is located in a small village 5 km from Menaggio, on the hillside with fantastic views of the lake from the living room and bedroom. The location is superb, but a car is almost necessary. It's a distance from the village center, and buses to Menaggio and other touristic places (also ferries are from Mennagio) are not very frequent. If you rent a car or drive there, I would highly recommend it. The apartment was very clean, and spacious. Parking could be difficult at times, but was generally accessible within a short distance from the house. There are many hiking trails throughout the mountains and tiny villages directly from the house. There's a small beach club with some food and drinks just at the bottom of the hill. In all, it was a very pleasant stay, and Christiana was extremely helpful and accessible.
