What guests say…
“We would like to thank everyone at Happy Holiday Homes for being SO helpful with information and answering all sorts of questions regarding the drive we had to the property and various bookings. Lydia was extremely enthusiastic and thoroughly knowledgeable about the advice she gave regarding our journey, which was slightly fraught driving through the Gotthard Pass as we had torrential rain and fog. Quite a precarious pass but apart from that, it was an excellent route. We were very relieved to arrive in Menaggio and the staff were exceptional in guiding us to Plesio where Villa Serena can be found. We did find this short journey very windy, hilly and some drivers not always keeping to their side of the road. We were surprised that we were quite far away from the town and unable just to walk in as the parking situation was very difficult. We had to allow extra time to find a place to park. Villa Serena was indeed beautiful, comfortable and clean, plenty of room and the most amazing views. Lovely to have a pool (shame it wasn’t bigger)! Our trip to Villa Balbianello was superb, sadly Lenno market wasn’t on as it was a national holiday (should have been noted on info sheet) and La Barcola was excellent too. Our favourite outing was to hire a boat for 3 hours and Nautic Planet boat company were excellent and recommended by yourselves. My daughter managed to arrive in Menaggio from Dubai and also had a great journey back. It was she who found Serena initially, and I can say on all our behalves – it was the most wonderful weeks holiday on Lake Como. Our regards to everyone and hope Lydia enjoyed her honeymoon. We will return one day. Regards The Peacheys.” Alison, UK – August 2017
“The villa is wonderful, however, you need to read the directions guidelines carefully to reach to the villa.” Hadi, UK – July 2017
“Our stay at Villa Serena was exquisite. The villa was very well furnished and the outdoor areas were superb, spoiling us with beautiful views of the lake and nearby Varenna. The team were very helpful upon our arrival and departure by providing maps, restaurant recommendations and highlighting local attractions. We will definitely return, can’t wait.” Donna, UK – August 2016
