Relax in a Lake Como holiday let

Lake Como, which branches into the rising Alps, just north of Milan, is one of the jewels of the Italian lakes region. Snow-mantled peaks serrate the horizon on its top end, heralding the rugged glacier valleys of Switzerland, just across the border. All around the banks, below chiselled cliffs and gnarled limestone crags, little villages and towns reflect in pastel hues in the shimmering water. It's little wonder that such a beautiful place has become something of a playground for beautiful people – jet-setter villas host the likes of George Clooney and Madonna in the summer months. Lake Como holiday lettings can be your ticket to rubbing shoulders with A-listers, not to mention alpine hikes, romantic boating days and a hard-earned little taste of la dolce vita.

Adventuring in the outdoors around Lake Como holiday homes

This enchanting body of water stretches more than 45 kilometres into the heart of the Italian Alps, and has long been a magnet for outdoorsy types. On the western banks, Lake Como holiday homes have trailheads right on their doorstep. You can pull on the hiking boots there and join La Via dei Monti Lariani as it wiggles through the alpine pastures for over 120 kilometres. Parts of the trek take you to the Valle Albano, where the high-altitude meadows reward walkers with views of the rocky Marmontana massif, on the border with Switzerland. Meanwhile, back down on the water's edge, everything from sailing to windsurfing is a possibility.
