Our home

Our condo is a luxury penthouse occupying the entire top floor of a small new building in a village 3 km from the town square of Menaggio. It has a spectacular, unobstructed view of the lake and high peaks of the Alps. The condo was custom designed with hand-made furniture and finished in 2007. There are 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms with room for 3 couples. The large living/entertainment area consists of a separate living room, dining room and kitchen, all facing the lake. The fully-equipped kitchen features all Bosch appliances, quartz countertops and an oversize center island made to double as a bar. On two large balconies entered through French doors, tables, chairs and lounges are provided for you to get mesmerized by the scenery – or by the twinkling lights across the lake at night. The dining room has a custom-made round table seating 8 people comfortably, and the living room has a wood-burning stove to warm you in cool evenings. No convenience has been overlooked: there are high-speed Internet connection, satellite TV and a washer/dryer in one of the bathrooms. A private garage with a remotely controlled door is available. To spare you from climbing steps after a day’s sightseeing, an elevator with secure key access takes you directly into the condo!

Who we are

  1. We are a retired Chinese-American couple who have homes on three continents and still want to experience more places and cultures. I was a technology entrepreneur for much of my life and my wife an interior designer and occasional writer. We love travel (any doubt?), photography, boating, music, theater,… and above all, we love Life! We had a fabulous exchange with a luxury condo in Sydney, Australia and have an agreement for an exchange in Paris. We are already sensing the excitement of interacting and sharing life with people of kindred spirit around the world. We are interested in nonsimultaneous exchanges. Our condo is available for exchange between October and May

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Lake Como is the most famous of the three largest lakes in Italy. Long before luminaries like George Clooney took up residence there, it had been the playground of nobilities who built gorgeous villas and gardens around the lake. Surrounded by the Alps, it has an eco-climate that permits the growth of tropical plants alongside laurels and Olives. Our condo is in the beautiful town of Menaggio, situated on a sunny strip of the lakeshore. It is the best possible place from which to explore all of Lake Como. Menaggio is a mere 20 minutes’ drive from the Swiss border. It is an hour and a half from Milan to the south and St. Moritz, Switzerland to the north. We don’t use a car when we are here; we can take a public bus to go downtown in 5 minutes, and from town square we can reach any place by taxi, bus or by ferry. Of course, you can rent a car if you wish as there is a good-sized private garage just for you. Our condo is one of only 7 units in a small complex. Through a sloping garden we can walk to a swimming pool shared by the residents.
