Location description from owner

The Lake Como region

Dervio

Corenno Plinio = the castle of Andreani and a cluster of houses around it. Casa Ortensia makes part of it, and in medieval times is was even interconnected with the castle. The castle is built on a rock and the houses around it are built onto the sloping rock, so lots of steep footpaths and steps. To reach Villa Ortensia from the car park you have to go down partly on a footpath and some steps. So comfortable shoes and no heavy suitcase. Corenno Plinio has no shops, no restaurants, it is a very quiet hamlet which still give you the feeling of past times. Much the better! For shopping etc you depend on Dervio ( 4 km), Bellano, Colico and Varenna ( about 10 km) Lots to discover: Lecco at 30 km is the main city and which italians adore to visit at least once in their life time as the story of the most read study book written by Manzoni " Promessi Sposi" played here. The waterfall "Orrido" of Bellano is a thundering water mass in a very narrow canion"Fiume Latte" near Varenna, the shortest stream in Italy which appears in springtime out of a grotto and disappears 600 m , never to be seen again.Varenna is a well preserved coastal village with lovely shops, lake side restaurants and nice boulevard. the ferry boat takes you to Bellagio and Menaggio ( and the rest of the lake if you stay out for the full day! ) Chiavenna ( the old "chiave" key for the passage between Italy and central Europe) it has a wealth of historical buildings, the streets in the centre with their old portals and houses looking onto the river Nera are very distinctive. Abbazia di Piona: located in a beautiful position near Colico, on a promontory separing the lake of Como from the lake of Piona, it was founded by the clunic monks in the 11thc entury, more over lake Piona is a resting place for migrating birds. Sailing and surfing schools in Dervio, Bellano and Colico, some nice small sandy beaches makes lake como also very attractive to the young. No wonder that the rich and the beautiful ( filmstars and footballplayers) today have discovered lake Como too!
