Plesio:

Plesio is a municipality in the Province of Como in the Italian region Lombardy and is situated on the Western shore of the lake with a population of around 850 people. It is approximately 30km north east of Como.

Plesio is called the 'Pearl' between the mountains and the lake as it is such a beautiful location. Narrow streets with cobbled pathways and picturesque buildings, some still with stone and slate architecture, which dates back to the 1300's, all add to the beauty of this charming village.

The village has seen many changes over the centuries and been home to many people. Nomadic hunters who lived in caves, followed by the Celtic people, then Greek colonists brought here by the Romans. During the eleventh century huge walls were built to help provide fertile terraces on which to grow their crops.

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).

We really had a wonderful stay.

We enjoyed such beautiful weather during our stay on Lake Como. Our apartment was located in a really quite hillside placed called Plesio. There was a nature park nearby but apart from that all we had were glorious views and plenty of peace and quiet! The complex was very small and offered views of the central lake and Bellagio.

Our apartment was a very good size and modern throughout. The bedrooms were to the lower level, making them feel lovely and cool when we cam in from the heat outside! The swimming pool was a great way to enjoy the sunshine and we did do a lot of exploring during our stay; with the help of our hire car. There was plenty to see and do on the central lake.

Plesio is perfect if you want to relax in natural surroundings yet be within easy driving distance of all the attractions. Thank you, we really had a wonderful stay!

Plesio is a semi-rural village which although relatively remote is just a short drive from the charming village of Loveno which features professional tennis courts, a nature reserve and excellent pizzeria as well as being just a 16 minute drive from the picturesque Resort town of Menaggio which boasts a wide choice of amenities including supermarkets, shops, bars, cafés and restaurants. The transport links are also excellent from Menaggio with a regular western shore bus service and a car and passenger ferry service to Varenna, Bellagio and Como.

Local activities include swimming, tennis, golf, horse riding, trekking, cycling, sailing, water sports and cultural excursions. The cosmopolitan delights of the Swiss City of Lugano can also be reached by car in less than 1 hour.

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. 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.
