What guests say …
“My family of 3 couples and 2 young children recently stayed at Villa Lumbini. We think it is a hidden treasure. This was our first trip to the Lake Como area and we were glad we chose the Menaggio area. Elisa and the Happy Holiday Homes team were great to work with. They were very responsive to any questions that we had and made sure the house was in great shape before we checked in. The views were amazing and we loved the pool and the layout of the house. We cooked out and ate by the pool several nights and enjoyed the restaurants in the area the other nights we were there. I think our best find was a nearby restaurant called Trattoria La Vecchia Magnolia. Villa Lumbini is about 10 minutes up the mountain from the city center, so pretty high up (which makes for the great views). Unlike other restaurants in town, Trattoria was only a few minutes from our house. Amazing food, service and views !! We also rented our own boat on Lake Como. That gave us a lot of flexibility to check out many of the villages and towns around the lake. We also had our own car transportation which you really need if you want to be able to get around easily. Thanks again to the team at Happy Holiday Homes for a great vacation at Lake Como. We will gladly stay at other homes they manage on future vacations. Sometimes you never know what you are going to get when renting a house or villa. We now know we can trust them to deliver as advertised.” June 2018 – Mickey, UK
“Beautiful! Wish we could have stayed longer, but we are planning a return trip next year!!” July 2017 – Natalie, UK
“We are back home from our glorious vacation in Como and Spain. Our family had a fabulous time together and we all agreed that our stay in the Lake Como area was the best of all! We loved the whole place – the mountains, the lake, the many tiny towns hugging the mountainside, the beautiful weather, the interesting and thrilling driving on your narrow, twisty roads, the lovely people, and of course, the fantastic food and cafes everywhere! We spent 4 lovely days exploring the little towns of Menaggio, Tremezzo, Cernobbio (which we loved), Como and also took the ferry to Bellagio and Varenna. We saw the M&C golf course and had our dad’s 80th birthday meal at La Baita, all ideas I got from the book I was reading by Harold’s friend, Roland Merullo, called the Italian Summer. It was hilarious and I enjoyed my stay all the more because of it. We also drove to Milan one day just to see the Duomo and do some sight seeing and it wasn’t difficult at all. The Villa Lumbini was perfect. There were 9 of us and we had room to spare. The open layout, bright and spacious with the central kitchen and the large balcony and garden were ideal for our large meals at breakfast and for lounging and relaxing at the end of the day. We were slightly worried one night when our neighbor threatened to call the carabinieri as we were probably getting a little too excited with our game of black jack in the balcony, fortified by some of your fine wines. So we moved inside and it was fine. The house is so new and spotless and we felt pampered by the space, the cavernous bathrooms, the fabulous views. We had only one glitch, our hot water supply was intermittent but George got his technicians to come in the middle of the night to help us out. Your people are lovely and helpful and very attentive to our needs. Harold, a big thank you for the EXTRA case of wines you sent to us. Congratulations on a fantastic operation you run. All in all, I would recommend the Villa Lumbini wholeheartedly to al. Enjoy!” Maria, USA
