Location description from owner

The Lake Como region

The ideal place for a holiday or a long weekend trip to relax or take part in one of the money activities. The ideal place for a holiday or a long weekend trip to relax or take part in one of the many activities. Immersed in nature and featuring beautiful architecture and Lake Como set between the majestic Alps and the river plains, the area offers a wide variety of landscapes, villages and dwellings.

The lake, of glacial origin, is 60km long, It has an area of 146 square kilometres, making it the third-largest lake in Italy and at over 400 metres deep, it is one of the deepest lakes in Europe. Surrounded by picturesque villages which still maintain their ancient traditions, Lake Como displays on its shores the legacy of an illustrious past: the luxurious villas once belonging to Lombard aristocracy.

Lake Como can be admired at best by climbing up the hills surrounding the lake and looking down over the water dotted with boats and sails, or directly from the lake, taking a tour on one of the many boats crossing its waters.

It is known for its Mediterranean-like climate where sub-tropical plants grow year-round. Dominant winds on the lake are from the north in the mornings and the southerly Breva, a typical thermal wind blowing from noon till sunset. These winds mitigate the heat during summer days and offer the perfect environment for windsurfing, sailing and kite-surfing.

Vercana

Domaso is the lake side town overlooked by Vercana. Due to its position over a long and flat plain, this old fishing village offers view over a vast area of Lake Como.The location and climate is perfect for tourists; it never gets uncomfortably hot in the height of the summer and is very mild during the winter months. The “Breva” wind which blows from the south makes it perfect for the schools of windsurfing, water-skiing, kite-surfing, sailing and canoeing, there is an abundance of locations around the lake where you can also hire equipment. In addition to traditional water sports close by there are tennis courts and football grounds, gyms and fitness centres. At just 10km from Domaso there is a horse-riding club.The main characteristics of Vercana are its peace and quiet. The mountains above offer fantastic trails and walking paths which surround the village and are perfect for hiking and mountain-biking for novices and the more experienced. Casa Farfalla. It is in a good location for visiting all of the famous locations around Lake Como by car; or take one of the regular water taxiszig zagging across the lake; or take a day trip to Milan or into Switzerland. For the keen cyclists please note the famous Stelvio pass is only 90 minutes away by car (a lovely drive) and is closed twice a year to cars making it the perfect day to cycle together with thousands of other enthusiasts
