The Lombardy / Lake Como Area region
Villetta La Torre is on lake Como . Our summers are wonderful with a pleasant breeze. July is the hottest month ( 30 C) , Springtime starts in April, May and June are usually warmish, also September and very much loved by people not liking it too hot. Winters are bright with lots of sun shine and nearly no rain but cold, it may snow however once or twice and the snow vanishes near the lake but stays on the mountain tops. We do cross country ski higher up, and real skiing at 90 mins by car in St. Moritz, Madesimo or Bormio in Valtellina.
Lake Como has been an important through way for peoples coming and going north, pre Roman churches, medieval castles and look out towers are still te been seen.
Como is the capital of this region and has a very beautiful churches and historical places. The centre is worth to be visited. Today Como is known for its silk industry , look out for small shops with special bargains.
The Rezzonico area
Rezzonico is one of the most charming villages on lake Como. A castle on the waterside dominates the village. We have secluded beaches which you can reach only by foot or boat and a large gravel-stoney bay. The village is away from the traffic, it has a small supermarket, pizzeria, bank and pharmacy. For extensive shopping we go to Menaggio ( 4km). This has a lively boulevard with a ferry boat crossing the lake ( Bellagio is just in front) , narrow streets, cosy piazza's , trendy shops. The oldest golf course is in Menaggio with splendid views on higher grounds.
Lake Como is 50 km long and west of Menaggio where the lake splits in two branches. We have a strong breeze in the afternoons and is a paradise for surfers and sailing boats. International competitions are also held here. The water is clear and clean and good for swimming .
The mountains around the lake are 2000 m high and invite hikers but also leisurely walking. You will discover forgotten villages, churches. Good roads lead up to "viewpoints" for those who prefer to see the sights without long walks. At the end of 19th century rich people from Milan built their summer houses most of them can be visited inside but also the beautiful gardens such as Villa Carlotta, Melzi, Balbianello.
Dayouting to Milan( 40 mins by train from Como), Lugano with lake Lugano 25km away, maybe even Venice

The house was great, very clean and neat with a very good equipped kitchen. Lovely spacious open plan dining area with terrace and outside table + chairs. Everything we needed was there, and more.
The drive up to the house is steep though and stairs to access it makes it difficult for disabled/elderly people to access, but the garden itself locks down and is perfectly safe for small children.
Location is good, not far from Menaggio and shops, restaurants and swimming close by.

The house was modern and clean house. Good equipment for cooking at home. There are three different floors, where the bedrooms are not on the same floor as the kitchen and living room which is good if you are traveling with more people. The extra bedroom on the 1st floor is cool during the hot summer nights compared to the 2 other bedrooms, but it is definitely not that charming. The terrace is just lovely with an amazing view! The terrace is though just next to two different neighbors on each side. You are expected to speak quiet in the later evenings, which is a bit annoying when you are on holiday and want to enjoy your dinners late on the terrace.
The house is perfect located for making day excursions to the mountains or for visiting different villages around the sea, you have lots of options! But car is needed. There are lots of options of tours for biking and also for hiking. There are lots of places where you can stop along the sea and find small beaches. The beaches where okay but maybe not the most beautiful ones you ever visited. But there are lots of different and very beautiful villages along the sea sides to visit. We spend an amazing week and enjoyed ou stay very much!!
