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).
From the gated residence the wide selection of amenitiesin central Menaggio are just a 1 minute walk in with a host of supermarkets, delicatessens, restaurants and boutique shops. The café-lined piazza and tree lined promenade also provides the ideal place in which to meet up with friends for a morning cappuccino, evening aperitif or for a leisurely lakefront stroll.
As well as the Lido di Menaggio guests can also enjoy tennis, golf, canoeing, sailing, power boat hire, mountain biking, hiking, horse riding and visiting the famous villa attractions which make Lake Como one of the most fashionable and beautiful places in the world.
The resort town of Menaggio offers excellent transport links with a car and passenger ferry service to Varenna, Bellagio and Cadenabbia as well as a frequent bus service to Como city and Lake Lugano.
