Lake como arguarbly provides the most serene setting in the whole of Italy.

The milder temperature the lake enjoys present a comfortable climate to relax and recuperate from gentle lakeside walks to lazy afternoon lunches amidst majestic lakeside scenery.
The deep blue waters of the lake offer an enticing invitation for an afternoon dip or for a boat trip to one of the quaint villages that surround it. For lovers of flora and fauna a short journey will take you the grand gardens of Villa Carlotta or for sheer breathtaking beauty visit romantic Villa Balbinello with its fairytale lakeside location.
Famed for its jaw dropping beauty, the lake has long since attracted many famous names to its shores from Shelley and Longfellow to Stendhal and Liszt to modern day luminaries such as Versace and Clooney . In fact the recent final scene in the latest James Bond adventure was filmed here in Menaggio at Villa Gaeta (see picture).
Futher afield Monza (formula 1), Milan ( Italy's capitol of industry and fashion)and Madesimo (skiing)and St Moritz in Switzerland(skiing, shopping and people-watching) are all within easy reach. Menaggio is very close to the Swiss border, so day trips to Lugano-should you wish to visit a different lake-is possible.Please ask for specific details, we will be happy to advise you of our favourite day trips and recommended restaurants to help you get the most from your stay!
Menaggio is perfectly positioned to enjoy every aspect of the lake.
