About Lisa Mentessi


Lisa Mentessi purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Lisa Mentessi chose Andorra

We chose the location because it is near enough to the village, but far enough away to just hear the church bell across the valley. Within a few minutes walk there is a hotel with all amenities,gym , bar ,pool etc which the boys use. Looking up to the top of the mountains and down to the village, it was always out dream to be snowed in for a couple of days, but due to the excellent road services that has never happened.

Within 4 minutes we can drive to the village or walk in 15. The ski lifts are in the village, as are a few shops,bars and restaurants, not at all commercialized.if you have never been to Andorra you will be surprised at the unspoilt beauty and tranquility of this hidden country nestled in the Pyrenees. the good thing about the ski slopes is that you do not have to wait half an hour to get on the ski lifts, there are now more internation competitions being held here, with slopes to suit all levels of skiers. Walking and cycling is very popular, or just shop and chill out.

What makes this apartment unique

The appartment is cosy, the neighbours are very nice, very comfortable with everything you need to make your stay a very pleasant experience. Underground parking,a lift, not that we use it much, full central heating, constant hot water, we are never bored when the sun goes down, we watch a movie and play a lot of board games [ In the apartment there are lots of board games and a vhs library with lots of modern classic films]

This apartment is not just a holiday let, you could live here, it has everything

Andorra vacation

  • 5 of 5

Took a complete chance on our first "Owners Direct" holiday let in Canillo.

It wasn't disappointing.

Nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was clean comfy and functional.

It is suitable for skiing breaks or summer pursuits. Car parking is secure in an

undergroung facility.

The views from the apartment are fantastic and the master bedroon is very

warm and confortable. All cooking utensils are available and any queries or special requests are sorted by the delightful couple who live in the complex.

All in all a great place to stay and easy to find.

Ticked all the boxes!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at this apartment (8115161), the description was accurate, it was clean and well-maintained, Pedro and Maria were helpful and generous with their time and advice and I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. The apartment was easy to live in and all the equipment (washing machine etc.) worked well. We went to Canillo to ski and were very happy with the facilities. The town is small but has all the basics, plus the best hot chocolate shop in the world - Les Delicies Del Jimmy! Rick, the owner, was easy to contact, very helpful and took a genuine interest in our activities. Thank you to Rick, Pedro and Maria for making our holiday so enjoyable!

Peaceful location near nature

  • 4 of 5

We felt like at home in this very comfortable and well equipped apartment. Only the dishwashing was missing.

Contact with the Owner was always very friendly (despite my poor English - we are French ! - we manage to understand each other).

It was our first trip in Andorra. This apartment was a perfect location and allowed us to go for several beautiful hikes.

From the moment that we contacted the owners Rick and Lisa, we were taken back by their friendliness and willingness to help and make the booking experience as easy as possible. Rick too provided great information on Andorra, how to get there, which car rental companies to use - all invaluable information for a first time visitor.

The apartment was all it was promised to be and the reception we received from Pedro who met us was simply five star! The place was homely, spotless and well located with a great view over the Canillo valley.

What a great experience from start to finish!
