Lake Como is one of the most beautiful and romantic lakes in Europe, it is an oasis of peace and tranquillity.
In the nineteenth century it has been a retreat for wealthy Milanese families who built beautiful villas. Some of them are open to the public and their gardens are really worth to be visited. Near Varenna there is Villa Monastero, Villa Melzi is in Bellagio, Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo, Villa Balbaniello in Lenno. Rich and famous people from all over the world have come here for vacation and some of them have bought beautiful mansions ( from Versace to George Clooney). .
Every season is worth a visit, because the climate is mild. Springtime starts in April, May and June are warm. In July the temperature reaches 25-30 degrees, but there is always a lovely breeze, a must for surfers and sailing boats. September and October are much loved too and winters are usually cold but bright with lot of sunshine .
The lake is loved also by young people who practice golf, swimming, sailing, wind surfing and all water sports .

In less than 30 km you can reach Lugano in Switzerland, and the famous ski resort of St. Moritz is only 90 km far. The nearest international airport is Malpensa (Milan), 90 km.
Rezzonico is probably the most charming village of Lake Como. It is a small village of houses and towers, narrow streets, steep roads with arcades and porticos. It is a characteristic Medieval suburb dominated by a beautiful castle dating back to the year 1000. Along the shores you find secluded beaches and picturesque spots. The surroundings are very picturesque.
The village is very quiet, has few restaurants, pizzerie and trattorie where you can taste lake fish ( lavarello, alborelle, missoltini ), a small supermarket, bank, pharmacy. For extensive shopping and night life Menaggio, a lively town with the oldest golf course and tennis courts, is nearby (10 minutes by car).
All year round, thanks to the Mediterranean climate, high mountains invite hiking and walking. For mountain lovers there are walks through small and sunny villages. From the peaks of Monte Bregagno you have the view of 3 lakes: Como, Piano, Lugano. You find rural settlements with their old houses made of natural stone, little piazzas with wash places and ancient chapels which take you back in time.
But if you want to relax you can go on day trip excursions and take a ferry as far as Bellagio, Varenna or Como.
