The Lombardy region

Outside the residence guests are ideally located just 2km south of Dongo; a lakeside town which offers all the desired local amenities as well as a boat rental and a ferry service. The property is also situated 4km north of Cremia which offers some very good restaurants and water sport facilities.

The very pretty resort town of Menaggio is situated just 10km south of Pianello del Lario and offers a bustling Piazza, a wide choice of cafés & restaurants, a Lido with beach and two swimming pools, a beautiful Promenade and many local and specialist boutique shops.

Visitors can also take the passenger and car ferry to Varenna, Bellagio, Tremezzo and Como city. A frequent bus service also operates taking visitors to the many lakeside towns and villages as well as to Lake Lugano in just 25 minutes!

Pianello del Lario is a municipality in the Province of Como located in the Italian region of Lombardy. It is is a charming little village on lake Como's north-western shore and has a long-sandy-gravel beach called Laguna Beach as well as a harbour and nearby coves. In Pianello village, every ammenity is at your disposal including - a local bakery, supermarket, cafes, restaurants and bars, all providing a true taste of the relaxed Italian lifestyle. For the adventurous amongst you, there is hiking, watersports, golf and skiing, all easily accessible in the surrounding areas.

Whether your holiday plans are for simply relaxing or reading a book with a cappucino on the terrace; perhaps walking in the Italian Alps with all that fresh alpine air, or alternatively, you're adventure plans may see you windsurfing, boating or fishing on this truly spectacular lake and then of course, there is skiing at the world famous St. Moritz or at Madesimo, a charming ski resort just 60km away (1hr 15 mins)

The town has a number of historic landmarks to visit including The Museum of "La Raccolta della Barca Lariana which has a nautical theme, housing hundreds of 19th century boats depicting the nautical history of the area. Also well worth a visit on the shore of the Lake is the 15th Century church of San Martino well known for its frescos.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club 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. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €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).

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 resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.

Pianello del Lario

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:

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, in spriing 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 Oleandro).
