Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Casa Gianna is situated down one of the old cobbled streets of Vercana. The building was originally a large single house, which was recently converted into five separate apartments. Casa Gianna takes up the whole of the ground floor and has many original features.
Vercana is a traditional village 5 minutes drive or 15 minutes walk above the lakeside resort of Domaso. It is in a good situation for visiting all of the famous locations around the lake but it is also an ideal starting point for walkers and cyclists wishing to explore the many marked routes in the surrounding mountains.

The Lombardy region
Casa Gianna is a wonderful old building with many original features in contrast to many of the other rental properties around the lake which tend to be modern with little character. It is surrounded by wonderful walks both at lake level and in the surrounding hills and mountains. Just above Vercana it is possible to access the marvellous itinerary called 'La Via Dai Monti Lariani' (Lario being the ancient name for Lake Como). It is a beautiful hiking trail stretching nearly the whole length of the lake from Sorico in the North to Cernobbio in the South at an average height of 1000m. From the front door of Casa Gianna walking and cycling trials are available to suit all abilities.
The nearest golf course is situated in the hills above Menaggio, 25km from Vercana.
The north west side of Lake Como is a popular location for all major water sports - especially sailing, kite and wind-surfing.
Fabulous skiing at Madesimo is only an hour's drive away from Vercana with approximately 60km of runs including the famous canalone. Also accessible is Chiesa, a good ski resort for beginners/intermediates and the world famous Swiss resort of St Mortiz.
Vercana is a picturesque village of old stone houses and stunning panoramic views across the lake and towards the Valtellina Valley. This is a real Italian community with an imposing church having well preserved frescoes inside. Three village shops, two bars and a pizzeria are all within a 5 minute walk of Casa Gianna.
All other amenities such as supermarkets, restaurants, chemist, bank etc can be found at lake level in Domaso.
The nearest lakeside beach is at Domaso where all major water sports are available, including rental of equipment and tuition.
There is a tourist information office at Domaso and passenger ferry stop. Domaso is a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk from Casa Gianna. It is in a good situation for visiting all of the famous locations around Lake Como or taking a day trip to Milan or Switzerland.
