The Lombardy region

The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.

It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.

All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Warming, inspring and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto

narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).

Ossuccio

Ossuccio and surrounding area The beauty about Lake Como is in it's diversity offering so much to so many. If you just want to come away for a week or so and put your feet up by the balcony with the obvious benefit of world renowned scenery Lake Como will not dissapoint.

The area's only sandy golden man made beach can be found close to Ossuccio village (5 mins by car to Lenno) where waiters bring you your favourite cocktail while you admire the lake from beneath your minature tented gazebo! For those who like to get out and about, lakeside walks, breathtaking villas, pretty piazzas, majestic mountains, quaint villages and quintessential italian cities beckon.

The park in Ossuccio is favoured by locals her to soak up the sun or enjoy a drink at the bar. The lake como greenway is also found close by for walking enthusiasts who wish to sample the sheer beauty of the area and keep fit at the same time! The local regional food is amongst the finest in Italy as you would expect from a region so passionate about food. Milan is just over an hour away for the principal designers but Como city offers a more compact alternative with it's array of little boutiques, cafe culture, paved streets, gothic cathedrals and stunning lakeside location.

Romantics are well served with the Villa Carlotta and it's majestic gardens, Villa Erba in Cernobbio, another lakeside favourite of ours - perfect to enjoy a gelato along the lake front whilst walking off another italian lunch! Perhaps the most popular for sheer beauty is Villa Balbianello in near by Lenno. Eagle eyed James Bond fans will no doubt have spotted the villa in the recent 007 adventure "Casino Royale".

Golf

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club celebrating 100 years this year and is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays EU 55, Weekends and Holidays EU 70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental EU 36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

There is also a first class Golf Course at Varesse for those staying nearer to the Lake Maggorie area.

Skiing

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema , not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resort is Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx. 1 hr 20 min. by car.
