The Colonno area
For those who just wish to take in the sun and relax or just go for a lazy stroll to walk of that lunchtime gelato then Lake Como offers the perfect holiday to achieve a relaxing chill out break.
Colonno is a traditional Italian lakeside village and it situated 5 mins north of Argegno and located next to Sala Comacina (famed for the island of Comacina) with Lenno and Menaggio a few kilometres further north. 40 minutes from Como and about one hour to Milan airports (Malpensa and Linate) and Milan for fashion, food, football and Formula one (Monza).
The apartment is situated at the beginning of the famous Greenway di Lago, a beautiful walk through the lakeside villages from Colonno to Menaggio. For the really energetic a 2 ½ hour hike will take you to the peak of the Alpe di Colonno at 1319 metres above sea level.
The coastal strip from Argegno to Menaggio enjoys a unique sub-tropical micro climate with mild winters and an average summer temperature of 29 degrees , little wonder George Clooney has his villa about 15 minutes drive from the home and makes these lakeside areas arguably the most sought after on Lake Como.
The village of Argegno is only a 3 minutes away with lake, ferry, bus. Bank, mini market, fruit & veg shop, geletaria all available here in the village.
Take the funicular close to the village for superb lake and mountain views!
Shingle beach for sunbathing plus mountaineering in near by val d'intelvi for the more adventurous!
However for holidaymakers who like to explore there is plenty of variation on offer from visiting medieval churches to browsing at the many Italian boutiques in nearby Como town famed for it's silk and leather, talking a boat ride for a spot of dinner on one of the many lakeside villages to climbing the mountains high above the lake! Choose from Villa Carlotta, 15 minutes from the apartment with it's acres of beautiful lake facing gardens, Villa Balbinello in Lenno (15 minutes drive)for romance and relaxation (James Bond seemed to favour the latter in the recent Casino Royale production filmed here in 2006)
Bellagio never fails to disappoint and offers a great excuse to take the water ferry across the lake. Marvel at it's picturesque promontories, cobbled streets and fine art shops all with lake views par excellence.
Drive down to Cernobbio for an idyllic Sunday afternoon stroll. Menaggio, with it's pretty palm lined walkways it another pretty lake village worth exploring.
