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 backdrop 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 Oleandro).

Guestbook comments from the manager

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!

There are many local amenities within easy access and just a short drive away, from the tennis courts, bank and beach which are located in Ossuccio to the wide variety of supermarket, shops and lake front cafes in Lenno.

A visit to the historical Isola Comacina with its island restaurant is a memorable experience, as are the famous Villa del Balbianello and Villa Carlotta, which are both reachable by car in just under 10-15 minute’s.

A regular ferry service runs nearby from Cadenabbia and Menaggio to the other resort towns of Varenna and Bellagio, which are located on the Easter shore of Lake Como and which make for wonderful trips during the daytime or for meals in the evenings.

Additional Sport & Adventure Activities include:

Bike Rentals, Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Float Plane/Helicopter, Funicular Railway, Park, Public Transportation, Public Villas & Gardens and Rowing Boats.


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 Golf Club Menaggio beforehand to check course rules.


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.
