The Lombardy region
Lake Como is the 3rd largest and the most beautiful of all the lakes in Italy. Surrounded by lush green mountains it offers some of the most dramatic scenery in the region. Lake Como plays host to many beautiful gardens, Villas and lakeside villages and has its own micro climate which makes it a great place to visit anytime of the year.
There is something for everyone to enjoy including sightseeing, walking/trekking. golf, cycling, architecture, shopping or simply relaxing and enjoying the peace and tranquility around the lake.
In the winter months it is possible to spend a few days skiing at the nearby resorts of Madesimo (77 Km) and St Moritz (106 Km).
Lenno is a charming lakeside village, 20 km north of Como town, which is easily accessible by the main road from Como.
Lenno is the oldest village on the lake which is centrally located and a good base to explore other surrounding villages such as Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna. With its ample choice of services including its very own ferry point, Lenno is the perfect base for making your stay on the lake a very easy and pleasurable experience.
The bay of Lenno, which is only a 10 minute walk from the apartment, is the perfect place to relax at one of the cafe bar's, whilst taking in the lakeside views, watching the locals go about their daily affairs and to see how the local fishermen fish by traditional methods, as they have done for decades.
At the end of the bay sits the Lido Di Lenno, where the Lake and mountain views can be enjoyed over lunch or whilst relaxing on the sandy beach. The Lido has a number of Motorboats which can be hired to explore the lake and is also the point to take you around the headland to see the stunning and seductive Villa Balbianello. This grand house was used for the film set of the recent James Bond movie - Casino Royale.
If you are arriving into Lenno by ferry you will get the chance to see the 30,000 sqm Villa owned by Sir Richard Branson which you may have seen recently on the X Factor where Louis Walsh hosted his hopefuls. The villa can be rented for a mere 115000 EU a week!
The beautiful promenade in Lenno also hosts a lovely little market every Tuesday morning where you can purchase most things including local cheese, fish, vegetables and the tastiest roast chicken's ever!! English is well spoken on the Lake, however the locals are really encouraging if you want to try out your Italian. The market is a perfect place to try it, so go on. ..have a go!!
If you fancy a morning or afternnon of relaxation, pampering or treatments, then the new tranquil Spa- La Dolce Acqua, in Lenno is for you. This fabulous spa has massage and body/face care treatments,a solarium, whirlpool and various sauna's, showers and baths.
There are plenty of events and festivals across the lake throughout the summer months. These include outdoor concerts, dancing events, flea markets and the spectacular fireworks display in Lenno itself.
Nature lovers have a vast choice of hiking tours in Tremezzina, from the simplist of routes suitable for everyone, to more difficult trails for expert hikers.
A lovely lakeside walk which passes through Lenno is the Greenway Del Lago Di Como. Along the 10.5Km walk you can discover villas, gardens, Roman findings, quaint villages, restaurants, old Italian architecture, and expansive views.
Lake Como has many golf courses which can be easily reached by car, the closest being an 18 hole, par 70 course in Menaggio. The Menaggio and Cadenabbia golf course is one of the oldest golf courses in Europe enjoyed by local resident George Clooney. Most of the other Lake Como golf courses will require a 20 to 45 min drive from Lenno including the Circolo Villa D'Este which is named in the top 5 courses in Italy and considered one of the most challenging and difficult par 69's in Europe.

My husband, myself and our 28 year old daughter stayed at this apartment for 10 days. The location is wonderful and you wake up every morning to breathtaking scenery. The weather forecast was awful but we only had one or two heavy showers. The apartment is very well equipped, particularly if you are travelling with young children. We were not, but still enjoyed several books and movies provided.
We really liked the fact that this apartment was not in a high tourist location but still convenient. The pool was clean and well maintained. We used the sofa bed which was easy to set up.
Everything from initial contact with the owners to completion was first rate.

"Fantastic! We will return ."
Beautiful apartment in a beautiful location ! I am missing the view of the lake and mountains from the balcony already . This is a wonderful place to relax and chill, yet it has so much to do and see. Really couldn't fault anything. The apartment has everything you need and nothing you don't . The owners have it just right . Gemma, who looks after the keys and lets you in was just great. A mine of information . Can't wait to go back, would highly recommend it . Excellent value for money . Thank you So much !

"A clean, modern apartment in a quiet location."
The apartment provided all that was needed for a comfortable stay. You could see the lake from the balcony. It was located a good, pleasant walk away from the centre of Lenno where there was a good choice of restaurants. A well stocked supermarket was about 5 minutes walk away. An ideal base for exploring the beautiful areas around Lake Como.

1st time to Como but won't be the last. The nicest place we've holidayed in Italy. So beautiful. Apartment Alessandra was immaculate - extremely clean and comfortable on a very small & intimate apartment complex, only a short stroll to the centre of Lenno, to restaurants and the ferry. Being able to relax by the pool some days was great. The apartment is almost on "The Green Way" and thus great for walkers. I would recommend this apartment to anyone - we certainly will be back.

"Cosy, compact apartment in village with spectacular views"
The apartment is one of more than a dozen in a modern complex not far from shops and the lakeside; very well fitted out and thoughtfully equipped getting a lot into a small space. it is one floor up and has a balcony from which you can see the lake. Had useful basement storage room with washing machine plus good central heating system.
Handy location away from the main road, but within easy walk of a supermarket, cafe and agent's office which is just by main road. Agent very helpful in providing transport to and from apartment. Centre of Lenno with lakeside cafes and ferry boats not much further away and is an attractive place.
Apartment can be reached by public transport and excellent directions given in joining instructions. However the bus from Como to Lenno had standing room only both coming and going.

However the vistas and the warmth of the Lenno residents made this holiday so relaxing.The excellant and well maintained facilities of the apartment are second to none.The apartment is well situated,just a short walk to the town of Lenno .We were surprised at the competitively priced supermarket only 5 mins walk away. There is everything you could need in your holiday here,water sports,walking,history, culture and fantastic scenery .We enjoyed the local restaurants,especially "Il Cris "---fabulous fish dishes here.Gemma ,the agent had excellant knowledge of the area and was very helpful.We plan to return very soon.,

This apartment was booked as the second part of two centre trip, the first part was Monaco for the grand prix and this part was to relax after the bedlam of the GP weekend.
I must say it hit the spot perfectly, finding the apartment is easy when you follow the instructions given and not the sat nav! The apartment although relatively small it is very nicely done and well equiped, included are fridge freezer, dish washer, washing machine, tv, dvd player (with a selection of dvd`s), i pod docking station, even inflatable toys for kids to use at the pool. The balcony has views of the mountains in one direction and the lake in the other direction, we loved having breakfast on the balcony in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. the apartment also has a dedicated parking space.
The location was great, it was at most a 10 minute walk to the lake where there were bars and restaurants, if you are in need of a internet fix, the sports bar at the lakeside has free WI FI. Lenno its self is a beutiful little town and the locals were very freandly. There were two supermarkets close by (5 mins walk)
We were only there for four days but would recomend Ville del Balbianello (lake access is best) a trip to Bellagio (20 mins on the ferry from Lenno port) and fresh ice cream while walking by the lake in the evening.
We also spent some time relaxing at the pool, the water temperature was perfect.
On the whole it was exactly what we needed and left the apartment totaly relaxed. We would not hesitate to return to the apartment again, or reccomend this apartment
