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).
Lenno is the oldest known village on Lake Como and boasts a fascinating history which also encapsulates the surrounding villages of Ossuccio and Sala Comacina, making this part of the lake special in many romantic and enigmatic ways, from the beautiful bay of Lenno, the famous L’Isola Comacina to the Baroque style Sacro Monte di Ossuccio monastery which sits on a rocky crag above Ossuccio.
As well its rich heritage the charming village of Lenno also conveniently boasts a wide range of modern day amenities including supermarkets, banks, a bus service, passenger ferry service and a picturesque cafe lined promenade perfect for enjoying a morning cappuccino and a lakefront alfresco lunch.
The popular Lido di Lenno is situated along the bay and boasts a sandy beach ideal for sunbathing. As the sun sets the Lido becomes the ultimate destination for the fashionable Milanese to enjoy cocktails, dancing and fine lakeside dining.
The jewel in Lake Como’s crown is arguably Villa del Balbianello and it is from the bay of Lenno that visitors can access the breathtaking villa and its stunning landscaped grounds; from taking the water taxi or by walking along the woodland trail which is located close to the entrance of the Lido.
