Thank you to the Happy Holiday Homes team for such a great stay on Lake Como! My family stayed in a lovely holiday home, located along the western shore in the historical village of Ossuccio. The village was easily accessibly from the central lake attractions and there was also a great range of local amenities available to us in the village and the neighbouring town of Lenno.
Our holiday accommodation was clean, modern and very well presented; with a sunny dining terrace and a spacious garden to relax in. The partial lake views were beautiful and we were within envious reach of the Isola Comacina. We enjoyed dining out most evenings and had some truly unforgettable dining experiences at Locanda Trilindana, La Fagurida and La Darsena.
The holiday home provided us with the perfect base and the nearby attractions included the Comacina Island, Villa Balbianello, Villa Carlotta, the Greenway del lago and the walk upto Sacro Monte di Ossuccio; to name but a few! Thank you again for a truly wonderful holiday!

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 Madesimo and St. Moritz toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx.100km.
