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, 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 Oleandra).

Pianello del Lario

From the peaceful semi-rural Pianello hillside a selection of amenities are available to locals,

including a small grocery shop and a convenient western shore bus service. The nearby lakefront town of Cremia with its charming harbour and shingle beach boasts a water sports club, a selection of cafes and bars and also the very good authentic restaurant, ‘La Baia’ which serves fresh lake fish, local wine and delicious pizzas.

From the property the picturesque resort town of Menaggio can be reached in just 20 minutes by car. The famous lakeside town features pretty cafe-lined piazzas, a wide selection of supermarkets, lovely delicatessens, boutique shops, a variety of restaurants and a fabulous lakefront Lido with sandy beach, swimming pools and cocktail lounge bar. A frequent car and passenger service runs from Menaggio to the other famous ‘golden triangle’ towns of beautiful Bellagio popular with shoppers and the stunning Varenna popular with romantic visitors. Varenna also conveniently features a Lecco-Milan train service. The central lake features a fabulous choice of restaurants for guests to enjoy from family-friendly pizzerias, fine award-winning lake front restaurants and highly recommended ‘Agroturismos’ which serve delicious country-style cuisine.

The cosmopolitan cities of Como and Lugano also provide excellent dining out possibilities as well as designer shopping, trendy clubs and nightclubs, casinos and year-round cultural events.

Central lake activities are many and varied, from cultural excursions to the famus villas and botanical gardens to sport activities which include water sports, canoeing, swimming, tennis, golf, boat hire, hiking and cycling.

Extreme sport lovers can also enjoy the sport clubs situated above Bellagio which provide opportunities to paraglide, quad bike, abseil and climb trees.
