Lake Como Holidays,
where there is something to suit everybody's fancy!
The area of Lake Como is a huge open air gym where you can practice all different types of sports from skiing to mountain biking, horsing riding to trekking.

One of the most important natural reserves of the area is Pian di Spagna. Here you can have a fun day trotting about between the reeds and trees with over 24 species of birds.
A brief boat trip separates the coast of Ossuccio from the beautiful island Comacina. The only island of Lake Como is Comacina. The island is beautiful all year round where you'll find an antique ambient with the brightly coloured fishing houses and the romantic church of S. Giacomo. It is an area rich with history, art, traditions and memories.
You can arrive at fantastic Lake Como villas onboard wooden 'Riva' speedboats and enjoy strolling around the picturesque gardens. This style of boat is reminiscent of the 60's and the famous Italian era of the 'Dolce Vita' where popular film stars were photographed on board these luxurious speedboats on Lake Como. There are fabulous villas dotted along the lake, with magnificent architecture and traditional Italian gardens to visit.
Play Golf in the popular town of Lanzo or Menaggio, situated on the banks of the lake with courses of 18 holes which has been carved out of natural surroundings to create a most pleasant atmosphere.
Play the narrow fairways, with challenging uneven terrain and let yourself be enchanted by the backdrop of the Alps far in the distance
