Mezzegra is a charming village which offers a very good selection of local amenities including 2 supermarkets, a grocery, bakery, cafes, a park and benefits from a frequent bus service which runs towards Menaggio to the north, and Como city in the south.

The picturesque lake front of Lenno, with its cafes, restaurants, the Lido di Lenno and its water taxi service to Villa Balbianello is just a 2 minute drive away. Nearby Ossuccio enjoys wonderful views of Isola Comacina and also offers tennis courts and a power boat rental company, with its neighbouring village of Sala Comacina offering pretty views also of the island as well as frequent boat trips there to visit its tourist restaurant.

Mezzegra area:

Mezzegra is situated on the western banks of Lake Como, in the zone of central Lario known as Tremezzina. There is a weekly market in Mezzegra (Friday) and Lenno (Tuesday) where you will be able to buy fresh fish from the lake. In Mezzegra town, you will find supermarkets, the post office, bars, coffeehouses, the baker (which if you wish delivers fresh rolls to the house), can be reached in just a few minutes by foot.

Mezzegra is famous for being the scene of Duce's last hours. In Giulino, XXIV Maggio street, in front of Villa Belmonte gate, a steel cross reminds the place where Benito Mussolini and Claretta Petacci were killed and in the hamlet Bonzanigo there is the house where they spent their last night together.

Pay a visit to the church of Sant'Abbondio, dating back to the end of the 1600’s, with its elegant Baroque facade and its precious canvases (17th and 18th century) and its most beautiful marble Baroque altars. Close to the presbytery and the sacristy are visible traces of the old Roman chapel which preceded it. In one of the two surrounding annexes of the church, plaster works are preserved attributed to Pietro Silva and frescos possibly by Fiamminghino, while in the other, which is also decorated with plaster work and prized frescos, there is a large decorated wooden altar dating from the 17th to 18th centuries.

The beautiful nearby Tremezzina shore offers a wealth of restaurants, bars and cafes and is also home to Villa Carlotta and the Cadenabbia ferry port, offering frequent car and passenger crossings to the famous ‘Golden Triangle’ Towns.

One such resort town, Menaggio, is easily within reach from Mezzegra, just a 15 minute drive away and here guests can enjoy its romantic charms, family friendly Lido as well as the famous Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club.

A wide variety of activities to enjoy on the central lake include swimming, hiking, cycling, sailing, wind surfing, power boat rental, kayaking, golf, tennis, horse riding, quad biking, climbing and the famous villa tours.

Additional Sport & Adventure Activities include:

Bike Rentals, Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Float Plane/Helicopter, Funicular Railway, Park, Public Transportation, Public Villas & Gardens and Rowing Boats.

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. 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.
