From the property you and your guests can enjoy the very beautiful village setting of Carate Urio which features pretty lakefront vistas and imposing Villas and lush gardens.

Carate Urio Area:

The ancient village of Carate Urio is a municipality in the Province of Como, which is located in the Italian region of Lombardy. The commune lies on the north western shore of Lake Como and is made up of two distinct areas; Urio and Carate Lario.

The village still retains all it's old world charm today, which is evident from the century old houses that are surrounded by stepped lanes and crossed by low bridges. Roman remains and Gallic tombs have been found in this area which denote it's ancient origins.

The village has some good restaurants where you will be able to sample the local cuisine, there is also a small grocery shop, a post office, bank and a pharmacy. Should you need a larger selection of shops, then it will be worth a visit to either Cernobbio or Como. There is a boat stop in the village with frequent services to Como and Bellagio.

There are two Churches in the area, the parish Church of SS. Quirico e Giulitta which was rebuilt in 1865, the bell tower is twelfth century and still remains from the original building. Also, the Church of S. Marta which dates back from the eleventh century has several ancient frescoes.

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:

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).
