The houses in this village are situated to the foot of the steep slopes of the Fopp mount, which is over 1000 metres high and crowned by the ruins of Castle of Vezio.

The pretty and well established village of Fiumelatte claims its unique name from the distinctive frothy river which runs through the village and which is famous in Italy as the country’s shortest river!

There are also many great restaurants and wine bars for you to try.

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:

The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.

It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.

All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Warming, in spriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).

Guestbook comments from the manager

The one thing that you both recommended highly that we didn't do was to take the private boat ride - we did take a lot of ferries (esp. yesterday), & we realize that wasn't the same thing at all as the closer-to-the-shore experience that we would have had. Seems that we ran out of time (you'll find out when you get older that the pace slows a bit!), so.... if you'll forgive us for not taking that advice this trip, we promise to do it next time!

We did nothing today that we couldn't do on foot, so.... no car & no boats. We walked up to Crotto di Pino for lunch - sat outside beneath an olive tree overlooking the lake - the owner couldn't have been nicer - said that his food was "simplice ma buona" - he was true to his word, & we spent our "last afternoon on Lake Como" in a most enjoyable & leisurely fashion.

Thank you again for everything - we'll have nothing but good memories - I'm sure you hear that all the time!!

The village also benefits from a frequent bus service, a mainline train station with services to Lecco and Milan and lake road which leads directly into the resort town of Varenna in a matter of minutes!

Varenna is the perfect town to explore during your stay with the famous attractions of Villa Monastero with its botanical gardens and the ancient Castello di Vezio with its falconry displays and medieval displays during the summertime. The beautiful town is also very popular with romantics who are drawn to its tree-lined piazzas featuring boutique shops, it��s pretty café lined lakefront with its scenic promenade and fine lake view dining which can be found in the many hotels in the eastern shore town.

A fast and frequent car and passenger ferry service runs from the town to Bellagio and Menaggio making the other central lake attractions all highly accessible. Central lake activities include lake and lido swimming, golf, tennis, water sports, sailing, kayaking, paragliding, hiking and cycling.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Skiing:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibility and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
