Located on the shore of Lake Como, Veleso is a quiet village between Como and Bellagio at almost 800 meters above sea level. The village enjoys a postcard-perfect view of the lake. The public beach and marina are within easy distance by car or by bus. The village, 3 minutes walking distance, has a restaurant, grocery shops, a pharmacy, and a post office. Como and Bellagio (16 km away) are accessible for day trips. Lugano, in Switzerland (55 km away), is also within driving distance. The nearby village of Nesso includes an ancient church built in 1095, the fishing harbor of Pognana, waterfalls, and the ruins of a medieval castle.
The town of Como is elegant and charming. Here, the Villa Carlotta, an 18th century summer house, and the 14th century duomo should rate high on your itinerary. Popular resorts on Lake Como include Menaggio, Cernobbio, Bellaggio, Onno, Varenna, and Colico. Thanks to easy, enjoyable ferry access, the resorts make excellent day trips from the villa.
