Why Alain Spiltoir chose Lake Como

It was love at first sight on one of our mountain walks in the region . And our dream became reality : a stone house with view over the lake, on the Swiss mountain flank.

Situated at the end of a road to the mountains , it's a challenge and a unique experience to live in this authentic village from the XVIIth Century, without roads or shops.

Carcente is even situated on a GR walking trail.

So, just take the opportunity to stay a while on this exceptional spot.

If you have a look at Google Maps you will find that Carcente is maybe not so far as you thought ...

Mediterranean climate with palm trees, lemon trees , kakis , aloës, fig trees and prickly pears in parks and gardens.

Peace and quiet, walks in the mountains ( rifugio di Menaggio, rifugio di Cima de Gugn) , through forests or along the lake ( greenway del Lago), watersports, swimming opportunities and beaches, cycling in the mountains or in the valley ( Valtellina), just take you pick , there's somethig for everyone.

Towns and villages around Como lake have kept their authentic character.

Strolling in Menaggio, visiting Villa Carlotta, interesting and cultural excursions to Como, Bergamo, Lugano and Milan a little further away

Regular ferry service to discover the other side of the lake : Bellagio and Varenna.

Carcente is part of the municipality of San Siro.

A touristic route runs along the lake from the south ( Como) to the North ( Colico). You can get there via the north, the Splugen pass, Sank Moritz, La Valtellna and Sondrio, or via the South, Milan, Bergamo, Varese, Como.

Menaggio is situated halfway the lake and can be reached via Lugano and the Swiss border in Gandria.

Once arrived in San Siro, go to the hamlet of Santa Maria : next to the church a winding road leads you to Carcente ( 6 km).

* Everywhere along the lake restaurants and pizzerias will welcome you.

* In mountain villages too, there are small restaurants that serve typical dishes. We especially recommend La Vecchia Chioderia with its trout farm, in the valley of the Sanagra.

* For lovers of watersports, there are surfing- and sailing courses nearby .

* There's a large shopping centre with 70 shops in Colico, Fuentes, at a distance of 25 km.
