About this location

The Lake Como 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).

Sala Comacina

From the hillside location guests can enjoy the selection of amenities in the charming authentic lakeside village which offers beautiful timeless architecture as well as local bars, bank, a local fish monger and two great restaurants called Locanda La Tirlindana which is situated by the lakeside in the tucked away romantic piazza and the famous visitor attraction of Locanda dell’Isola Comacina on Lake Como’s only island which enjoy a rich heritage and is one of the popular visitor attractions.

Guests can enjoy lake swimming, tennis and power boat hire in nearby Ossuccio and other local central lake activities include cycling, hiking, sailing, water sports, golf, paragliding and kayaking.

The many central lake attractions which include Villa Balbianello, Villa Carlotta and the golden triangle towns are all easily accessible just a 5-15 minutes drive away from Sala Comacina.

The municipality of Sala Comacina is in the Province of Como, which is situated in the Italian region Lombardy. It has a population of around 630 inhabitants, is approximately 20km north east of Como and lies on the western side of the lake.

In the last century, the small medieval village of Sala Comacina was a already a popular holiday destination, as is evident from the large number of superb Villas dotted along the lake side. The 'Villa Rachele' situated on the headland 'Puncia' was once owned by Cesare Beccaria, where he was reputed to have entertained many famous writers.

Sala Comacina lies at the foot of Monte Costone, which makes a wonderful backdrop. Here you will find a good public beach and the idyllic lake front location makes this village so appealing. There are also restaurants, bars, shops and a bank in addition to a regular ferry service.

Take a boat trip over to the only Island on Como, named 'Isola Comacina', which offers guests a meal to remember in the Islands famous restaurant 'Locanda dell'Isola Comacina' . Aparently, the same menu has been served there since 1945, which certainly seems to be a good recommendation!

"Glorious view spoiled by active building site less than 5 mtrs from balcony"

The accomodation is off of a small narrow lane and care needs to be taken when passing oncoming and parked traffic. Car parking is a short walk away, not for the old or infirm and even then a struggle… More
