Vercana:

Vercana is a municipality in the Province of Como in the Italian region Lombardy. It is situated on the western side of the lake, approximately 45km north east of Como and has a population of around 750.

Vercana consists of individual hamlets which line the banks of the river Livo, on the slopes of Pizzo Sasso Canale, which looks down onto Lake Como. It is a beautiful village which nestles above Domaso, on the northern shore of the lake and was once an old fishing village. There is a truly unrivalled panoramic view from Vercana overlooking the wonderful nature reserve of 'Pian di Spagna', Monte Legone lying to the east and the alps to the north.

The village has modest facilities; a small grocery store and a bakery, however it does have an amazing panoramic restaurant, complete with a wood burning Pizza oven. A footpath from Vercana leads down into the town of Domaso, approximately 2km away and there are numerous restaurants en route. Local beaches and water sports centres are close by and it is an ideal starting point for mountain bike and hiking tours.

The Church of San Salvatore was built in the 15th century and has Baroque architecture. It is located prominently in the Piazza at Vercana, where it enjoys remarkable views over the lake. The interior of the Church has beautiful frescoes as well as some outstanding statues and sculptures.

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).

Thank you for a great family getaway this year!

Thank you for a great family getaway this year! Our holiday home was both strikingly modern and family-friendly! The open plan living area boasted a fabulous kitchen and we had some great meals outside to the sunny lake view garden. The kids loved their cool bedroom and ours was lovely, with a lake view facing bed! The apartment enjoyed a really sunny hillside location and it was so peaceful and relaxed up there. The communal pool and sun deck was the ideal place for daytime relaxing and we found so much to also get stuck into on the northern lake, such as mountain biking, kayaking and sailing! We hade previously stayed on the central lake so it was great to experience another beautiful part of Lake Como. Thank you HHH!

We had a fantastic holiday on Lake Como. Our propery Vista Vercana - Moderna was outstanding. Very modern, clean and comfortable. We especially loved the stunning views. The swimming pool was good.

We have another week to book at the beginning of September, if the weather looks like it will be good we will be back!

Thank you for all of your help with our booking.

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.80km.
