The lower reaches of the western shore are the stuff of tourist brochures: wooded mountain slopes protect the lake from extremes of temperature and lush gardens abound. Many of the opulent villas that line the lakeside are still privately owned and on summer weekends the lakeside road is solid with day-trippers. The lake's only island, Isola Comacina, lies at the narrowest point of the lake, just before the waters open up to the warm climes of the nineteenth-century resorts of the Tremezzino. Menaggio, a little further north, makes a good base for trips into the mountains behind or across to Bellagio and Varenna. As you continue up the lake the shore turns rockier and less accessible until the lake spreads out into the marshes and flatter territory that accommodates camp-sites and windsurfers around Gravedona.
Musso is characterised by old houses which boarder the Strada Regina and by low porticos near lake in the small square close to the quay. In the 1500s the Castle of the 'Medeghino' better known at the time as the adventurer and buccaneer Gian Giacomo de Medici, stood here.
The hamlets however reach a higher altitude along the slopes of Monte Bregagno.
Places of Interest - The Church of San Biagio. This is the parish church with three naves built in the late 1300s where a Roman church dedicated to St. Nazaro formerly existed. Only the extreme absidal part of this original church still exists. The current church was restored and enlarged in 1507.
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 spring 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
Isola Bella Grande is absolutely fantastic. This was awesome find and we will look forward to renting it again.
We loved everything in the area, but have to say that Bellagio was amazing, the ferry was great, and we popped down to Milan to see the Duomo and it was incredible.
