Rezzonico: Rezzonico is located in the Province of Como in the Italian region of Lombardy. It lies on the north-west shore of the lake and has a population of approximately 1100 people. The nearest large town is Menaggio, which is about 10 minutes drive to the south.
There is a castle on the lake side of Rezzonico which dominates the village, that was built by Pope Clements XIII family in the XIV century. Many years ago, wealthy Milanese families used to use this location as their main summer retreat, which is testament to the beauty of the area.
Rezzonico is a really delightful little village with winding narrow cobbled streets in between the ancient houses with their elegant portals and portico's, where fishermen spread out and repair their nets. There are a few restaurants, a small supermarket, bank and a pharmacy. A small market is held on Wednesday, every two weeks, which makes for a great atmosphere. There are many picturesque spots and secluded beaches along the shoreline.
Skiing and Golf: If you fancy combining the Lake Como atmosphere & elegance with a few day trips to the ski slopes, then there are plenty of ski resorts to choose from, just over an hour away by car. Madesimo is great for beginners, mostly intermediates with some adrenalin runs but is surrounded by some of the most amazing alpine scenery. The local resorts of Pian Della Betulle & Piani de Bobbio are also only an hour away across on the Menaggio to Varenna car ferry.St Moritz is one of the most famous ski resorts in the world, 2 hours from Rezzonico and 45mins from Chiavenna by car. It boasts 320 days of sunshine every year (the best record for Switzerland). Play a round a golf at the very famous Menaggio & Cadenabbio Golf Club. We recommend having lunch in the Club House - absolutely delicious!
