Beautiful property in stunning grounds with views over the Lake.
The property has everything you need and all amenities are to a high standard.
The garden is fabulous with lots of different areas to eat/drink in.
We visited for 10 days with our dog who loved it. Only a short walk down to the Lake where we went every day to cool off.
There is a shop in the village which stocks all essentials. The bar/restaurant in the village Trattoria Pizzeria Dei Platani serves delicious food, great staff, very reasonably priced food and a view over the lake.
Menaggio is only a 15 minute drive away with great supermarkets to stock up on wine!
Marco and Simona are professional and helpful. Would highly recommend this beautiful property and we hope to return soon.
Ficano's Dream is a beautiful place, loads of area to relax in; even has bowling facilities! It was very clean. The owners left us to it so were undisturbed though the owners were careful to see we were OK and answered any query by phone or text immediately. The views are fabulous and the location is very quiet. We went in September so not overly hot but still ok to sunbathe outside at times. The tub is a "cold tub" not a "hot tub" so more ideal for the warmer season and we did not know that until we got there.
We were there seven days and filled our time well with lots to do inclduing the ferry trips to charming places on the lake from the ferry at Menaggio. Como is lovely especially on market day. Varenna also worth a visit. Switzerland and Lugano is also pretty close so easy to get to and worth a visit. The cable cars at Argegno and Funicular to Mont Bre and Funicular at Como also worth going to.
Access to Ficanos Dream is via a lane from the main road which is narrowish with z bends so confident drivers required!
We shall definitely return to this wonderful property with stunning panoramic views of the lake. The property itself is delightful and the outdoor facilities are wonderful. We could easily have spent our whole stay just relaxing at Ficano's Dream! Simona is a really delightful and helpful host. This part of the lake is great for exploring Menaggio, Bellagio and Varenna. Highlights of our stay included a meal at the restaurant on Lake Como's only island and an amazing train journey from Locarno to Domodossola. Ficano's Dream would be an ideal place to host friends who might be staying in the area at the same time - hydropool, outdoor bowls, table tennis and table football and range of outdoor sitting areas.
