The Lombardy region

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:
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).


Carlazzo

Menaggio & Porlezza are only a few minutes' drive away, Menaggio is the main village on the western side of Lake Como its promenade is lined with palms and flowers during summer months and offers views to Bellagio & Varenna.

Piazza Garibaldi is Menaggio's main square which is lined with boutiques, cafe bars, ice cream parlours and is where the locals relax and enjoy fine Italian food.

People choose Menaggio for its undeniable beauty and temperate climate, spring begins in April and the warmest months are July & August (30°C). Temperatures are warm from April to late October and sunshine continues through November although the days are shorter during the winter period.

From Menaggio you can visit many of the palatial villas open to the public, set in fantastic gardens. An excellent way to view the villas is by boat which will transport you around Lake Como, also enabling you to visit the many villages and towns including infamous Varenna, Bellagio, and the town of Como at the South of the lake, which should not be missed for its beauty, café culture and shopping.

Everything you need is in Menaggio from banks and supermarkets to the main passenger & car ferry stop which allows you to access and enjoy everything the lake has to offer.

Porlezza at the end of Lake Lugano offers a Saturday market, the chance to stroll along narrow streets, a magnificent church whose interior will amaze you.

The cosmopolitan Swiss town of Lugano is only 15 minutes drive from Porlezza and offers an array of shops, bars, restaurants, a casino and an abundance of tourist attractions. Lugano is where Swiss and Italian civilisation meet, it offers palm trees, picturesque boulevards, along with stunning views of the lake and the Alps.

The Italian fashion capital of Milan is only an hour away, offering a mix of high fashion, shopping, history and fabulous food.

During the winter months you are only an hour away from the slopes, or 90 minutes from the famous ski resort of St Moritz.

Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Skiing:
This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.
The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
