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).

Guestbook comments from the manager

My fiance and I had an unforgettable week in Brentano Grandezza. The property was not only super and just what we were looking for but the team at Happy Holiday Homes were great. They provided champagne and roses on our arrival and also helped me with making reservations to some truly great restaurants and also booked us in to a great little spa. The property grounds were beautiful and we were just so impressed by the finish and quality of the apartment. Grazie guys!

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. Tel: +39 344 321 03. 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.

Mezzegra:

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.
