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).

Such great views from our vacation rental.

  • Submitted: Feb 19, 2013

We've had a great 2 weeks here on Lake Como! Our vacation rental was spot on and its location in the rural village of Pianello del Lario was very peaceful, yet it was within an easy drive of the watersports in Cremia, the golf and tennis on the Menaggio hills and also the nearby villa attractions. There were a lot of great restaurants dotted along the western shore and I know we all enjoyed some truly unforgettable meals out! Lake Como was so beautiful and it was a great bonus for us to have such great views from our vacation rental.

We'll see you again next year!

Thank you for the perfect holiday! Our holiday apartment was very beautiful and we really loved its location on the very sunny Pianello mountainside!
The layout was very nice for us and we were very happy with its luxury feel and comfortable spaces.

The lake views were amazing! Menaggio was very nearby and we found a lot of shops, restaurants and cafes there + a very nice lido and a ferry port. Lake Como had a lot to offer us!!

Thank you for recommending this lake and holiday property to us!

A very luxurious and enjoyable lake view retreat.

We have had a wonderful time here on Lake Como. Our holiday home was very well presented throughout and it provided us with a very luxurious and enjoyable lake view retreat for the week. The open tread spiral staircase is probably not advisable for very young children staying but that is really all we can say about this property, it was really special and wonderful! A hire car is advisable. 10/10!

We all loved the peaceful location in the sunshine

  • Submitted: Feb 19, 2013

My family and I preferred our stay on Lake Como much more than our previous stays on the Italian lakes. Lake Como for us was more peaceful, intimate and accessible. Also we believe it was the most beautiful! The central lake resort towns were so picturesque and Villa Carlotta, Balbianello and Melzi were very idyllic. Our holiday home was situated in a semi-rural village called Pianello del lario. It was within easy reach by car and bus to Menaggio and Nobiallo marina, where we enjoyed a yacht rental one afternoon.

Our holiday home was very spacious, open and luxurious inside. The spiral staircase weas ok for the kids because they're older but I would raise this issue in case you have smaller children. The kitchen was a really workable size and we dined in some days on the sunny lake view terrace balcony. We all loved the peaceful location in the sunshine. I'm sure if you were here in wintertime it would be better to stay closer to the town centres, in case of snow etc. The HHH team were really great during our stay and they helped us make such a memorable stay with their Entertainment services and friendly advise!

From the peaceful and unspoilt hillside residence guests can easily reach within minutes by car the local village grocery shop as well as the picturesque lakeside resort town of Menaggio, which boasts a wide variety of amenities including various supermarkets, delicatessens, banks, bars, cafes, authentic restaurants, boutique jewellery and clothes shops, a Lido with swimming pool and beach as well as a fast and frequent ferry service to the other Golden Triangle towns of Bellagio and Varenna. The romantic promenade also provides a wonderful place to relax with an ice-cream or book and stroll to the mini golf and Lido whilst taking in the spectacular views towards the eastern shore and Bellagio peninsular.

The famous Villa Carlotta and Villa del Balbianello are both easily reachable by car along the scenic lakeside road, which leads in just a 40 minutes drive to the cosmopolitan city of Como which offers fast train links to Milan city and Milan Malpensa Airport.

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. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

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.
