The Lombardy region
Lake Como is located in an ideal area surrounded by protecting mountains which create a particularly mild climate and where southern and northern Europe meet and exchange culture. Well known all over the world for its charm and incomparable beauty, for its light pastels and water colors, Lake Como is an impressionism painting made by nature. Breath taking landscapes that have captured the hearts of more than a hundred years of “connoisseur” tourists coming from all over the world. The founder of the second oldest Italian Golf Club (1906) in Menaggio was English and King Edward VIII chose the lake for his honeymoon. Winston Churchill often summered on the shores of the lake. In the sixties the German chancellor Adenauer elected Lake Como as his favourite place for holidays. To this day the area is still loved by entrepreneurs, businessmen, writers, fashion designers, sportsmen, actors and movie directors including George Lucas, George Clooney, Donatella Versace, Madonna and Sting...
This is all because Lake Como offers its beauty with discretion and elegance, without confusion and with a magical atmosphere that invites one to relax and meditate. For these characteristics alone it becomes more appreciated, by more people, every day.
Cremia offer a nice beach with the perfect atmospheric conditions in order to practice kite-surf and wind surfing. Cremia is approximately 10 km from Menaggio, which is one of the poshest resorts in the renowned Central Lake area, with ferry, boat, and bus connections to the entire area.

North of Cremia and the central lake are the more rural tourist regions of the lake. Cremia/Menaggio are approximately 1 hr. 40 minutes from St. Moritz and 30 minutes from Lugano in Switzerland.
