Why Sue Mitchell chose Dorio

Dorio still preserves all the features of a typical village on the lake and sits in a sunny position on the slopes of Mount Legnoncino, enclosed between the gorgeous bay of Piona and the promontory of the castle of Corenno Plinio, a picturesque medieval village which is another pearl of the lake.

Dorio ia about a one hour drive from the Milan airports of Linate, Malpensa and Bergamo and is easily accessible both by car and by train. A short drive away are the most important towns on this side of the lake - Colico, Varenna, and Bellano which offer a wide range of tourist services, leisure centres, restaurants, shops, sports and lake activities.

By using the lake ferries the famous picturesque towns of Maggiore and Bellagio are only a short journey away.

In the winter you can quickly reach the most popular ski resorts of the area. Dorio is about one hour drive from Madesimo, Chiesi in Valmalenco, Aprica and Engadina.

What makes this apartment unique

Gorgeous lake and mountain views! The east side of Lake Como has the benefit of the sun late into the evening when the west side of the lake is in shadow. It benefits from a better road network which is not clogged up with tourist buses in the summer, as well as having a railway line with direct trains to Milan and onward destinations. Dorio has not suffered the blight of mass tourism which has effected many of the towns on the lake but continues to exude an original and unblemished charm.
