Bella Menaggio Terrazzo
Soak up breath-taking Lake Como views and a strategic holiday setting, just 4 minutes’ walk from central Menaggio!
As befits its Italian name ‘Mozzafiato’, which loosely translates into ‘breath-taking’, this gorgeous 3-bedroom holiday retreat makes the most of its elevated location on the Menaggio hills and boasts superior lake views from its sunny, spacious private terrace.
Guests can enjoy unwinding on the sumptuous sofa, which is accompanied by a 65” smart flat screen SAT TV with 100+ Sky channels (including Sport, news and movies) and a Blu-ray DVD player. Two CD stereo and iPod speakers allow guests to set the mood for effortless entertaining, whilst free in-house Wi-Fi lets guests keep in touch with loved ones whilst away.
A dedicated reading/study area also features next to the living room. Within the open plan living room, the accompanying dining area also enjoys lake views.
French doors enable groups to spill out onto the breath-taking panoramic lake view terrace, which offers a charming alfresco dining set and is easily the ‘wow-factor’ feature of this apartment. The spectacular vista stretches out across the Central Lake and encompasses Menaggio centre and the picturesque resort town of Varenna, which is nestled along the unspoilt eastern shore.
The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, oven, cooker hob, electric kettle, coffee machine, toaster, two wine fridges and a fridge freezer.
The sleeping accommodation offers welcome versatility for groups and families. A light and airy lake view master double bedroom with Juliette balcony and newly-fitted en-suite shower features alongside a second pleasant double bedroom and a child-friendly third bedroom to the rear of the holiday home, which is furnished with a set of bunk beds, a single pull-out bed and two study desks. The bedroom also leads outside to a communal rear lawn. For added flexibility, a double sofa bed is also provided within the living room.
Accompanying the bedrooms is a second newly fitted family bathroom suite with bath tub, overhead shower, wash basin, WC and washer dryer.
Outside, the spacious sunny panoramic lake view terrace is furnished with a set of sun loungers.
From the residence, central Menaggio and its lakeshore is within a 4 minutes’ walk away, via a series of pedestrianised paths reached by crossing 2 roads.
Pretty Menaggio centre boats a fantastic array of resort-friendly amenities, including authentic Italian restaurants, charming cafes, grocery shops, gift shops, a fabulous family-friendly Lido, a car-passenger ferry service and frequent bus links which operate along the entire western shore and to Como city and Lugano, via Porlezza.
