Customer Reviews

Overall:
An unbelievable experience! The sensory experience was amazing. From the view, to the sound of the waves, to the wonderful breezes through the villa we loved it all.
Enjoyed Most:
The property was close to the water, in a beautiful little town. The property manager was anxious to make our stay as wonderful as possible. The villa was up to date and convenient, yet really maintained an old world feel.
Enjoyed Least:
The lower apartment was close to a public walkway, making it uncomfortable to leave windows and doors open at night.
Surrounding Area:
While the cobblestone steps and walks were really old and quaint, I can understand the warning to those who may have physical difficulties. It was quite a hike with suitcases, but well worth it.
Nearby Events or Locales:
San Siro was easily walkable, but the trip to Menaggio was not. A car was a necessity, and the roads are NARROW!
Tips or Restaurants:
Villa Amata provided much more than I expected. The kitchen was stocked with some necessities, and we were easily able to prepare our own meals. Clean towels and light cleaning were provided twice during our week-long stay. In addition, there were beach towels, toilet paper, a beautiful basket of fruit, and two bottles of wine. The owner worked to make sure we had access to the internet as well. We felt very welcomed.

Overall:
The whole group enjoyed the villa and all the outside terraces and balconies. The views from the villa were the best of the whole lake. This is an extraordinary property and extremely well run. We received fresh linens several times and the maid came to make up the bed in the living room on Monday. It was more wonderful than the pictures online.
Enjoyed Most:
The fabulous views from every room was a real plus. The well stocked kitchen and lovely terraces made us decide to spend more time at the villa than touring the lake. The little local store up the steps from the villa supplied great croissants in the mornings. The villa had everything one needs to enjoy a relaxing vacation.
Enjoyed Least:
The long walk to the villa and the crumbling stairs up to the main door. Also, one chair was broken on the terrace, but everything else was in great repair and extremely clean and the description explained the difficulty in reaching this villa.
Surrounding Area:
We enjoyed the close location by boat from Menaggio to other cities particularly to Bellagio and Varenna. Our favorite town by far was Menaggio. We also traveled by car over the mountain from Menaggio to Lake Lugano and stopped at the local golf course. We also spent a day traveling by car to Lake Maggiore and the Bormean Islands. We took a day trip by train through the alps to St. Moritz. The train ride is on the World site list going from 400 meters to 7000 meters without the use of a cog rail. It was worth the hour drive to the train station in northern Italy
Nearby Events or Locales:
Donga was the largest town nearby but there was a little grocery and pizzeria in the village of our villa. Donga was not really within walking distance but this is where we found the greatest grocery store. They offered many freshly prepared dishes.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring a flashlight for late returns to the villa. We found numerous good restaurants. We had a lovely meal at the Grand Hotel Cadenabbia on the roof--reservations suggested--very romantic with the moon and view and Italian opera.
Directions:
We used a GPS, however the directions worked well.
