The Lombardy region

Northern Italy in the province of Lombardy borders Switzerland and is very near to both the flat land towards Milan and the high Alps towards Switzerland. Lake Como is one of the most popular lakes in the region with rough mountains for hiking in summer and skiing in winter. Charming old villages to explore, historical monuments to marvel and beautiful gardens on the lake side to enjoy.

San Mamete

San Mamete is an ancient and untouched village (12th century) and it is very appreciated thanks to its beauty and its art. Still today you can see ancient towers and castles in all the area. Be sure to visit the Parish Church of Purificazione di Maria (16th century) that preserves important frescoes by Carloni and, walled outside, a small marble high-relief portraying the Lion of St. Mark, symbol of the alliance of the Medeghino, lord of Valsolda, with the Republic of Venice; the Sanctuary of Madonna della Caravina, dates from the 16th and the 17th centuries. It is famous for the miracolous fresco depicting Our Lady which is placed over the main altar. And the Antonio Fogazzaro's house, placed by the lake at Oria (Albogasio).

The town has three small bars, a backery, wine cellar, hair-dresser and small shop.

"Lovely apartment overlooking Lake Lugano"

Stayed for 1 week at end of September. The apartment was spacious, with fabulous views and potentially a great option. The downside which took the edge off the stay was firstly the front door, the o… More

Thank you for your feedback. During this guests' stay, work on the Galleria d'Valsolda (Tunnel of Valsolda) was being completed. The tunnel is now open and our village is bypassed to all but local traffic as from Nov 2012.
