Pianello del Lario - Lake View
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The apartment is on the second floor of a brand new, small development of ten apartments, with lift, garage and good sized pool to enjoy. The apartment comprises two bedrooms, a large shower room/WC and an open plan living room with a dining area and kitchen.
The apartment is able to accommodate 6 using the two bedrooms (a double bedroom with a king size bed and a room with two single beds leading out to a small balcony) as well as a bed settee in the living room. The dining table also opens out to seat eight.
The fully fitted kitchen includes a fridge freezer, oven, hob, together with all the usual cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery for six people etc. There is also a kettle, toaster and microwave.
In the living area there is a large “L” shaped sofa and also a TV, DVD, portable radio/CD. French doors open out onto a large balcony with beautiful views over Lake Como. There is a small table and chairs on the balcony so that you can make the most of the panoramic scenery, while having breakfast, lunch or dinner.
All linen & bath towels are provided. (Please bring beach towels for use in the pool/lake.)
There is a large, shared pool (unheated) and a good sized sun bathing area (with showers). The pool is available to use from the beginning of June to the end of September each year. Sun loungers and beach chairs are stored in the apartment and can be taken to the poolside or to the pebbled beach which is about 200 yards from the apartment. There are a few beach toys that can be used (bats and balls etc.)
Pianello del Lario is situated on the western shores of Lake Como. It is approximately one and a half hours from Milan and surrounded by the Italian and Swiss Alps. Lake Como is the deepest and third largest of the Italian Lakes.
The summers are hot and there is plenty of snow on the mountains in winter. Because of its position, there is a lot to do all year round.
In winter you can ski in nearby resorts.
In summer, you can windsurf, sail and swim in the lake.
All year round you can use Pianello as a base from which to explore the surrounding areas of Lombardia, Piedmont and Switzerland.
Whilst it is possible to get around using public transport, I would strongly recommend that visitors have the use of a car.

Pianello del Lario
The village is a small, typically Italian place where British tourists are rare. This part of the lake is used primarily by Italians with holiday homes and Germans and Dutch using the small, local camp-sites, however it is just 10 minutes drive from Menaggio, which is a prime tourist area especially with the British and Americans.
A regatta is held every Easter and the beach is full of boats. A good place to watch the races is from the top of the white cafe.
North along the lakeside from the boat station is a pleasant promenade to Musso and to the south there is a small pebble beach.
The village is surprisingly well serviced with good local amenities needed for an enjoyable holiday:-
- 2 x Lakeside Restaurants
- Pizzeria (Eat In/Take Away)
- General Grocers
- Bread/Cake Shop
- A Market (visits fortnightly on a Wednesday)
- Post Office
If the local shops do not meet your shopping needs, a larger supermarket is a two minute drive north in Musso or an even larger supermarket is a ten minute drive north in Consiglio di Rumo.

"A fabulous place to relax and soak up true Italian atmosphere."
Been to this apartment on a few occasions and never fails to disappoint. The cleanliness, the view, the sultry evenings make for a fabulous holiday. Everything is at hand in the village if you just want to stroll by the lake or unwind with post a beach aperitif. Nearby are many lovely sites to see and the mountains are particularly serene. Great place, will certainly be returning.

Loved Pianello, it's beautiful lakes and mountains, restaurants,village life. The apartment is beautiful, clean, modern, tastefully and more than adequately furnished for all your needs. We have stayed at this apartment on three separate occasions and each time fall in love with Pianello a little bit more. If you are looking for a fantastic, relaxing holiday in the Italian Lakes, you won't be disappointed, book it!
