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, in spriing 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).
From its picturesque semi-rural hillside setting in Germasino the vibrant lake front visitor town of Dongo is just a short drive away. Here guests can enjoy dining out at one of the authentic local restaurants or can try lake swimming or wind surfing at the public shingle beach.
The main lake road provides easy access around the lake to the nearby attractions and activities, as well as to the popular family-friendly Ski Resort of Madesimo.
A frequent bus service also operates northwards to the resort town of Gravedona and to the famous destinations of Menaggio and Como city to the south.
The tranquil hillside location in the picturesque village of Germasino and just 15 minutes drive from the vibrant resort of Gravedona, this beautiful holiday home enjoys the best of both worlds!
The nearby town of Dongo is a commune in the Como Province in the Lombardy Region, and lies on the northwest side of Lake Como. The town has It has a population of almost four thousand and is famous for capturing many powerful fascist leaders on April 27 1945, including Benito Mussolini, as they attempted to cross the Swiss border. Like Musso, those who relish history will thoroughly enjoy Dongo.
In the centre of the largest piazza stands the Palazzo Manzi, although at one time it was an aristocratic residence, it is now the town hall and tourist information office.
The area is especially popular with sailing enthusiasts, where both sailing lessons and boat hire are available. Other water sports available in the area include windsurfing and kite surfing.
The town has a number of historic landmarks to visit including the majestic Palazzo del Vescovo (Palace of the Bishop), this was which was erected in the 1600s by the Marquis Cossoni's family. Much later in 1854, Carlo Romanò who was at that time the Bishop of Como, acquired the building from the family.
In 1983 the town of Dongo aquired the building. The citizens of Dongo, assisted financially by the Comunità Montana Alto Lario Occidentale, shortly thereafter initiated the complete restoration of the Palazzo. The building now houses the Civic Institute of Music 'Alto Lario,' and the International Piano Academy Lake Como.
Gravedona is a beautiful lakeside village with lots of amenities providing a variety of grocery shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, boutique shops and a romantic promenade with spectacular views from this northern village. It is a municipality in the Province of Como, which is located in the Italian region of Lombardy.
The name Gravedona was originally that of a castle and medieval fortifications located in the village. Artefacts from pre Roman times have also been found in the higher part of the village confirming it's historic roots.
There is plenty to occupy sporting enthusiasts as there is a public Lido for swimming, Tennis Courts, a Football pitch and numerous Cycle and walking routes. Next to the beach is a sailing centre, where both sailing lessons and boat hire are available. The 'Lake Feast Festival' takes place during August with numerous festivities and also a spectacular fireworks display.
Two Churches worth visiting are the Church of San Vincenzo, which was originally built in 1050 and rebuilt around the 17th and 18th centuries. The crypt dates from the 6th century and has been preserved from the original building. The Romanesque Church of Santa Maria del Tiglio is constructed in black and white marble and is quite spectacular and dates back to the 12th century.

"Mooie stek, maar met wat puntjes van aandacht."
Het uitzicht is fenomenaal en het appartement is van alle gemakken voorzien, zelfs een eigen garage voor de auto. Wat minder was was het continue geblaf van twee vervelende keffertjes van vaste bewone… More
