Large patio doors leading to a sunny, south west facing balcony, which provides for a great view down upon Lake Como and romantic sunset suppers.

The Lake Como region

Situated at the Northern end of Lake Como, above Gera Lario and close to Domaso, our elevated apartment commands superb views of Lake Como and the surrounding mountains, and is ideally situated for walking/ biking and being only minutes away from the lakeside means that swimming, fishing and a host of the more energetic water activities such as wind and kite-surfing for which the lake is renown, is easily accessed. Our apartment, although situated in a quiet mountain village, is within easy access of Varenna, Bellagio, and Menaggio either by car or take a leisurely cruise. Also close to Switzerland. Try taking a trip to San Moritz in Switzerland.

Ski: Our apartment is ideally situated (Northern end of Lake Como, close to Switzerland) for those who wish to ski. Skiing is available at resorts including Madesimo, Chiesa in Valmalenco, Aprica, San Moritz (Switzerland) and Livigno.

The closest is Madesimo (50 kms) . Madesimo is a small resort in the Spluga Valley on the Swiss border. It enjoys a reputation for being reasonably priced. Situated at a height 1500m, with skiing up to 2900m, it has a reliable snow record.
