The Lombardy / Lake Como Area 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).
The Varenna / Perledo area
From its hillside location the Vista D’Oro residence is just a 9 minutes drive away from the lakefront resort town of Varenna. This romantic town is known as the ‘Porto Fino’ of Lake Como due to the highly romantic appeal from its pretty pastel townhouses which nestle along cobbled streets from the lakeside to the elevate historical centre above and surrounded by lush mountainside vegetation and elegant villas and their gardens. The charming harbour is a pretty location to enjoy a cappuccino, ice cream or alfresco meal and the ancient passageways are a joy to explore, leading past hidden lake vistas, beautiful restaurants, boutique shops and historical church facades and castellated turrets. The famous ‘Villa Monastero’ with its gorgeous botanical gardens is situated in the town and also hiking trails to the medieval Castello di Vezio with its frequent re-enactments, and falconry displays leads from the town.
The popular beach in Lierna is just a 15 minutes drive away from Perledo and Menaggio, just a 15 minute ferry stop away features a modern family-friendly Lido. Sailing can also be enjoyed in nearby Bellano.
Varenna is a highly accessible Lake Como town with a frequent bus service, a train station with a Lecco-Milan service, routes to the Lecco and Valtellina highway and a fast car and passenger ferry service to Bellagio, Cadenabbia and Menaggio ensures guests are perfectly placed to reach the central lake attractions and activities which include water sports, canoeing, power boat hire, hiking, cycling, golf, tennis, extreme sports, skiing and cultural excursions to the famous Lake Como Villas and towns.
Varenna is the place to get away from it all, but also be in touch with the rest of the Lake. For the romantics, the historians or for those who love peace, tranquility and a history that goes back thousands of years this is the place.Varenna is an ancient fishing village with close to 1000 residents spread along a steep hillside overlooking Lake Como.
Varenna, built on a rock at the foot of a mountain is a boat stop from Bellagio on the east side of the lake and though popular it escapes the throngs in Bellagio (undeniably lovely, but like many other undeniably lovely places the crowds, higher prices and ‘tourist trap’ experiences can be very trying). Varenna dates from the 5th century - you can still see in places the original Roman layout of the town: a geometric design which allows wonderful views of the lake.
The reds, terracottas and yellows of its houses, its mild climate and the olive and cypress trees make you wonder whether you aren’t 200km further south. After the nearby island of Comancina was destroyed the population increased and flourished. The warring factions, as with much of Lombardy saw Varenna at odds with Como on many occasions and the rule of Varenna pass in typical Italian family tradition from the Visconti family to the Sfondrati's. Today Varenna is a lovely spot to chill out, although be aware that shops and even restaurants have been known to shut for lunch, so expect the better things in life to take longer.
Varenna is one of the most beautiful towns on the lake, its steep winding alleys lined with charming homes, flowering balconies and lace-curtained windows. In the evenings, the village is serene and picturesque. Truly a perfect place for relaxing. This is an understatement! The warmth of the locals combined with the perfect setting of the place, would melt the coldest hearts of the most demanding travellers.
