Location description from owner

The Lake Como region

Lake Como is a unique environment of incomparable beauty. The lake is surrounded by wonderful forested mountains and its shores are the setting for many historic villas and gardens. You can get back to nature by walking in the mountains, stoping to eat at rifugi -- traditional mountain restaurants -- along the way. Or you can explore the villages and towns of the lake by ferry and revel in the magnificent scenery. In summer the lake is good for wild swimming, too. Summers are usually hot, broken by thunderstorms. But the crisp sunny days of winter can be pleasant too. Then there is the ancient walled city of Como, centre of the silk industry, with its smart design and fashion shops as well as a fine cathedral built with Moltrasio stone. It also has art galleries, such as the Villa Olmo, a sea-plane club, a football stadium and a wide selection of bars and restaurants.From the lake front you can take the funicular railway up the mountain to Brunate, the starting point for many hiking trails.

Moltrasio

Moltrasio is a tranquil village on Lake Como a 20-minute ferry ride from Como town, and easily accessible by motorway from Milan and Malpensa airports. The lakeside bustles with activity around the local hotels while up the hill the centre of the village is very quiet and traditional. It clings to the forested mountainside and is cut through by a stream that becomes a torrent cascading in waterfalls after heavy rain.The house is reached on foot, 50 metres from the road, or 150 metres from the ferry boat station, along an ancient cobbled path known locally as the Holy Stairs. A car is not essential for staying here, and you can get about easily on public transport, by ferry boat, bus and train. Everything you need for your holiday is on the doorstep as the house is only minutes' walk from an excellent butcher/delicatessen, a baker, a grocer, a pharmacy, an ATM and restaurants.On the lakeside 2 minutes' walk away there is a pizzeria at the lido, as well as good traditional food at the Hotel Posta, and more upmarket dining at the Grand Hotel Imperiale. Walk up the hill 20 minutes to an excellent trattoria, Del Fagiano, where you can sample many kinds of game and mushrooms in a selection of pasta, salami, stews and risotti.The Grand Hotel Imperiale also has a state-of-the-art spa and beauty treatment centre.From the Moltrasio ferry station you can take boats to Como town or Cernobbio, with its weekly market, or up the lake, past gracious lake front villas and their gardens, to Bellagio and beyond.We can offer personal recommendations for swimming places, walks and restaurants off the beaten track.
