The villa is located 5 minutes up the hill from beautiful Mennagio town on lake Como. The place offers magnificent view, tranquillity, nice garden with outdoor facilities, pool, large living room, fire-place, modern kitchen with all the necessary equipment.
There are 4 bedrooms (2 of them have their own bathrooms with shower cabins), one common bathroom with the shower cabin and one common toilet with the sink. Great for family vacation or for the group of friends.
The villa has been constructed in 1885 and has been completely renovated in 2016. We tried to keep the authentic atmosphere of "once upon a time" combining it with the modern standards of comfort and technology. We are sure that this combination will give you an opportunity to have an incredible vacation in Italy.
There are one garden-view and one street-view master-bedroom, each complemented with the private bathrooms with shower cabins, lake view "kids room" with 2 single bed can be used as well for the children and for the adults. The beds can be united if needed. The last floor occupies a beautiful mansarda - my personal favourite room in the house.
As mentioned above each master-bedroom has its own bathroom, in addition there is one large spa-quality bathroom with the large shower cabin located between main and second floor. On the main floor there is a toilet with laundry machine and sink to wash the hands. One more shower is available for use in the pool.
There are a bit of a stairs to get into the house, as the garden is located on the hill. The main floor has 2 entrances: the "hall" and the "kitchen", named after where they lead to.
The kitchen is equipped with the induction cooker hob, toaster microwave, kettle, coffee machine, fridge and dishwasher.
The kitchen is connected with open-plan dining-room. In the dining-room there is a democratic round table perfect for dinners with friends and / or family. On the level of the kitchen entrance there is a small alfresco patio with the outside dining table from where opens a breath-taking panorama on the lake. Perfect choice for the hot italian days.
Living-room is connected with the dining room, being united they form an open space location with the windows facing the lake. There is access to the long balcony from both dining- and living rooms. TV with with main satellite channel is available for the use of our guests. Of course there is also unlimited internet (wi-fi) for your use. A nice cosy couch for chilling out is located in the dining -room in front of the fire-place.
On the basement level you can find so called "cantina" - a kind of room that used to be a storage or a wine - cellar, but nowadays is practically out of use. Next door to it you can find a small swimming-pool, probably not enough to train for the next Olympic games, but just perfect to refresh on a hot afternoon and absolutely loved by all the kids that are coming to the house. There is also a shower.
Down the stairs, just under the pool terrace there is a beautiful lawn with the lake view. The deckchairs are provided and can be found in "la cantina"
The house has it's own garage in the basement which is enough for one or 2 cars, if the second one is not too large. Also the the second \ third car can be parked just at the front of the house.

Menaggio is full of tourist attraction, caffès, bars, authentic eateries and restaurants as well as shops and souvenir stores. You can spend the time walking down the lake promenade, staying in a popular family Lido with child-friendly facilities, as well as swimming, cycling, hiking and more. It is also possible to use a private water-taxi or even to rent a boat!
For the guests of Ca De Mill I have prepared an info brochure where I have gathered all my experience of being almost local, yet stranger in Italy. So may be your holidays in Italy can be a little bit more authentic and fun. I live not far away from Menaggio and usually available if any help is needed.
