Villa Navalia is a spectacular villa for large group of friends or family. It is beautifully appointed with a huge deck with glorious views of the lake. It is within easy walking distance of Menaggio or there are bikes with baskets available for you to use.
Laura was so helpful and responsive to anything we required and helped us to organise tours, boats and restaurant bookings. can't recommend it enough and hope to be able to go back there.

The Villa Navalia really was the highlight of our one month stay in Italy. We stayed in Tropea, Courmayeur, and Menaggio and found that not only is Lake Como absolutely AMAZING, the penthouse apartment was stunning and even better than the pictures online. Plenty of room for the 3 of us couples. We loved having easy access to the ferries, lido (beach), town, shops, and amazing trails/roads (with the 6 bikes available to us!). One of the bikes had a flat and Laura immediately tried to fix it. When the tube needed to be replaced, she left us her own bike for a few days. She provides immense attention to every detail, not the typical self-catering holiday, but one where you can get every service added, if you like. She also provides an EXCELLENT guide to the area at the apartment, with a whole host of activities and recommendations that could keep you busy for weeks. We did the private boat tour to Villa Balbaniello (picked us up right at the marina), rented a boat for ourselves (again dropped off right at the marina), did the ferry rides to Varenna, Bellagio, etc, did hikes up to the Rifugio Menaggio and others in the area, and happened to be there for the annual fireworks show on Isola Comacina where Laura set up a boat and dinner party (really recommend if you happen to be able to come the last weekend of June). All in all, a stunning location, and a perfect apartment that is very modern and extremely well equipped, and very well managed. Thank you!
Place was beautiful, modern and very clean. Laura was extremely helpful. Able to walk or ride bikes to Menaggio. Views were amazing - outside each balcony. Close to the water and marina. Easy to take ferry to Bellagio and easy access to other villages. Reserve a boat in advance and they will drop it off at marina. Each day gave a different view of lake and mountains. Can't say enough of the views from house. Highly recommend. It was hard to leave.
