The Lombardy region
The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.
Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.
It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.
All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.
Warming, inspriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto
narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.
The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).
Vercana is a municipality in the Province of Como in the Italian region Lombardy. It is situated on the western side of the lake, approximately 45km north east of Como and has a population of around 750.
Vercana consists of individual hamlets which line the banks of the river Livo, on the slopes of Pizzo Sasso Canale, which looks down onto Lake Como. It is a beautiful village which nestles above Domaso, on the northern shore of the lake and was once an old fishing village. There is a truly unrivalled panoramic view from Vercana overlooking the wonderful nature reserve of 'Pian di Spagna', Monte Legone lying to the east and the alps to the north.
The village has modest facilities; a small grocery store and a bakery, however it does have an amazing panoramic restaurant, complete with a wood burning Pizza oven. A footpath from Vercana leads down into the town of Domaso, approximately 2km away and there are numerous restaurants en route. Local beaches and water sports centres are close by and it is an ideal starting point for mountain bike and hiking tours.
The Church of San Salvatore was built in the 15th century and has Baroque architecture. It is located prominently in the Piazza at Vercana, where it enjoys remarkable views over the lake. The interior of the Church has beautiful frescoes as well as some outstanding statues and sculptures.
A footpath in Vercana leads to Domaso (1.4 km) and enjoys beautiful views of the lake whilst also leading to more restaurants.
In Domaso’s centre you will discover a quaint working harbour, shops, bakeries and restaurants. The town also offers a convenient Ferry and Hydrofoil service, providing connections to other attractive and fascinating towns and villages which are stretched out along the shores of Lake Como.
The ski resorts of Madesimo are 50 mins by car.
