Golf:
There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Tel: +39 344 321 03. 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.

“Overlooks very busy road”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2012

This house is lovely inside but unfortunately outside really lets it down. It is a stones throw away from the main road from Menaggio to Switzerland. The traffic never stops and the noise is constant 24 hours a day making it hard to sleep at night. Even with the windows shut and fans on you couldn't drown out the noise.It is described as being on a peaceful side road but the busy road is only 50 metres from the door. It has a decked terrace with great lake view to the left ,which can be seen in the advertised photos, but the rest of the outlook is of the road. There is absolutely no privacy as everyone can see in as they drive by. The decking on the terrace is uneven and our two year old tripped a few times on it. There is plastic, dirty outdoor furniture so not a great place to dine alfresco on an evening. The house is well furnished inside, apart from the door to the dishwasher missing, and is well equipped. The floors could do with a clean though, they leave your feet black! Also as we were staying two weeks we were suppose to get a change of bed linen and towels which didn't happen even though we had paid a service fee for this. The house is well located if you have a car but walking into Menaggio involves walking on the main road for a bit. Also the hospital is opposite and the air ambulance helicopter lands just across the road which is exciting to watch but scared our children when it arrived in middle of the night.
