Il Lago di Como è uno dei più suggestivi paesaggi italiani, uno dei laghi più famosi e ricchi di fascino del mondo, decantato nell'800 dai maggiori poeti, scrittori e musicisti, apprezzatissimo ai giorni nostri a livello internazionale dai personaggi più in vista del mondo dello spettacolo, della cultura, dello sport e della politica. Nella Riviera della Tremezzina, detta anche Riviera delle Azalee, lodata fin dal Medioevo come luogo di eterna primavera, sorge Ossuccio, antichissimo paese di origine preromana, proprio nel centro Lago dove si incontrano i tre rami, nel punto in cui il clima è più mite e il panorama più ampio.
L'appartamento è di fronte all'Isola Comacina, immersa nel verde e unica isola del lago, frequentata fin dai tempi romani. Oggi l'isola non è più abitata, ma si può raggiungere in barca in 5 minuti per visitare l'oasi naturalistica, la chiesa e le catacombe; è inoltre possibile pranzare o cenare nel suggestivo ristorante.
A pochi minuti di auto si trovano molteplici attrazioni e villaggi pittoreschi, il paese di Menaggio con le sue piscine, il golf, i campi da tennis e gli innumerevoli negozi, le storiche Villa Balbianello e Villa Carlotta, Bellagio a breve distanza sulla riva di fronte, a pochi chilometri la Sighignola, conosciuta come “Il balcone d'Italia”, a circa 25 minuti la città di Como.
