Home Description

The cottage is available for rental from mid April to early November and is situated 7 minutes drive up the hill from Menaggio and 700 meters from the Menaggio and Cadenabbia Golf Course, the second oldest course in Italy, founded in 1907.

It is simply but prettily furnished and the accommodation comprises: at garden level, a large garage (with washing machine) and plenty of storage, and (not connected) a large twin bedded room which overlooks the garden. This twin bedded room has a third folding bed suitable for a child up to the age of about 11.

At first floor level is a self contained flat comprising a small entrance hall, very large double bedroom (king size double bed) with views to the mountains and the lake, a small but very functional kitchen with dishwasher which looks out over the garden, a living area with sofa and dining area. Bathroom with bath tub and shower attachment. Large 20 foot by 8 foot terrace with lake view and outdoor furniture.

A flat garden surrounds the cottage. The cottage is fully equipped with kitchen equipment and all laundry and towels etc. Swimming towels, however, are not provided. The cottage is a non smoking cottage although smoking is permitted on the balcony! Small dogs are tolerated but larger ones less so, and it is requested that they are not allowed to roam around loose in the garden and that messes are picked up.

A comprehensive information pack along with maps and guidebooks of the area and information on restaurants are left at the cottage for your use while holidaying there.
