“A Special Treat!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in May 2012

I took my girlfriend to Italy for her 30th Birthday and we stayed at Vista Prima in Pianello Di Lario.
Our holiday consisted of 2 parts – exploring Italy in our hire car, and relaxing in Lake Como.

After a week of exploring different parts of the country, we were completely exhausted and were very much looking forward to sometime relaxing in by the lake.

When we arrived in Como, we were completely stunned by the beauty of the lake and its surroundings, it was like nothing we’d ever seen before.

We paid strict attention to the directions given as it would have been easy to get lost in the beautiful landscape, and with each kilometre closer to our destination - our excitement grew and grew.

For 2 exhausted travellers, the view of the lake itself seemed to bring energy back to our systems as we were experiencing something completely different from the rest of our holiday.

When we arrived in Pianello Di Lario, we instantly knew we had made the right choice of location – the views of the mountains alone were spectacular, the clouds we’re snaking around the mountains, twisting along the peaks, and rising and dropping with the ridges – and we just couldn't wait to get to the apartment and see the views from there.

After driving through a picturesque hilltop village, we arrived at our apartment, Vista Prima – and its name really does ring true – the views were to die for! When you walk into the apartment, your eyes are drawn instantly to the mountain range on the opposite side of the river – you have a 180 degree view of the Lake and its surrounding mountains from the living area in the apartment – but step out through the patio doors onto the 1st floor balcony and you can see it all!
The landscape itself is stunning, but seeing all the houses nearby with their wood burners puffing smoke out their chimneys, scaling right up into the mountains was a sight to behold in itself.

Coming back to the apartment, it couldn't have been better. Very modern style, lovely garden and balcony. The kitchen invites you to try your hand at some Italian cuisine and is very spacious – and the coffee machine was an added bonus – an espresso on the balcony in the morning!

The bathroom is very stylish, the water feeding the apartment is fresh from the mountains, so jumping in the shower first thing in the morning and showering in fresh mountain water was so refreshing. Whilst I enjoyed a nice cold mountain shower, my girlfriend would enjoy a hot shower or a mountain water bath.

We had the holiday of our lives in Italy, and staying at Vista Prima was “the icing on the cake”.

I would highly recommend this apartment, and I will be returning to Vista Prima – hopefully with a little more energy than last time as I want to explore the lakes and perhaps try my hand at Kite Surfing.

“Great Girlie Gathering”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in November 2013

A great weekend getaway with friends to celebrate my birthday and there was so much for us to do from birthday drinks on the balcony, going into town and lovely Italian dinners all easily accessible to us.
The accommodation was perfect, clean well resourced and we were all able to sleep in comfort. But the best bit had to be the panoramic views of the lake from the balcony especially at sunset . We had a great time and I would recommend this letting to anyone.

“Serene setting”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed here for a week in June 2013 and whilst the first day was cloudy, the second day the clouds lifted to reveal the most stunning views. We ate every day on the top balcony and when a little shade was needed I retreated to the very pretty secluded balcony below where I sat reading or looking out to the lake, surrounded by the scent of honeysuckle. The apartment is of a very high standard and beautifully furnished. The pool was not up and running, but is in a lovely elevated spot, so would certainly like to return to try it out.

This location is perfect to visit the nearby town of Menaggio, where you can also get the ferry across to Varenna and Bellagio, which I would highly recommend. A car is essential to explore the area as it is stunning. We had a lovely week and I can't wait to return.

“Exceptional property with fantastic view”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 for a stay in October 2012

We stayed here for a long weekend and although the weather was a bit cold the house was warm and cosy. The view from the balcony is excellent and we got some great photos. The accommodation is to a very high standard. There is a local supermarket a short drive away so you can easily stock up on food if you want to cook in the big kitchen, as we did on several occasions.

A trip across the lake is a must as there are some lovely restaurants on the other side. We went to then to Varenna then Bellagio then back to Menaggio. The cable car ride also looked interesting although it was shut when we were there - worth checking.

We certainly hope to return, in the sunshine!
