We thought the property at Menaggio was lovely and perfectly located. We only had to walk down the block to the ferries which took us all over the Lake or walk a few short blocks to the little village with a number of restaurants.
The lakeside town of Menaggio boasts many local amenities which will appeal to self-catering holiday makers, including a choice of supermarkets, bakery, delicatessens, cafés and restaurants. The Lake view Piazza and landscaped promenade are a great joy to investigate and relax along, and there are many things to enjoy and try such as the locally made ice-cream, boat rentals, shopping at the boutique shops, the popular Lido with its swimming pools, restaurant, park and volley ball and the mini golf.

Ski: 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. 100K
