Make a holiday rental home or villa in Colico, Italy your home away from home

Colico is an important town situated near the northern tip of Lake Como, Italy. High up and surrounded by mountains, the town is a busy tourist centre, and a great location from which to base yourself when touring the lake, as it has some fantastic rental accommodations, and good infrastructure and amenities.

Things to do in Colico, Italy

Being situated on Lake Como, Colico is an excellent destination for water sports enthusiasts, with windsurfing, sailing and kite surfing just some of the activities on offer. Newcomers can pay for lessons and the more experienced can hire equipment and get started straight away.

After a hard day on the water there are a decent selection of bars and restaurants to relax in, and a nightclub if you fancy carrying on into the early hours. Most of the nightlife is situated in the most attractive part of Colico - the lakeside piazza, which also has a range of ice cream parlours, pizzerias and a market, as well as various shops on it.

Colico is dominated by Monte Legnone, which rises over 2600m, and is the highest mountain on the lake. A few kilometres south of the city, and standing at the foot of Monte Legnone stands the Abbey of Piona. This Clunaic monastery is open to the public, and houses various collections of Byzantine artworks. The Romanesque cloister was built in 1257, and from here you can also get a panoramic view of the lake.

Another landmark well worth a visit is the Montecchio Fortress. Built entirely of concrete and stone, it is the only Italian World War 1 fort that is still intact, and houses the four largest cannons in the country.

Places to visit on holiday in Colico, Italy

The surrounding Lombardy region is one of the most peaceful and relaxing areas in Italy, but just a relatively short distance from big cities such as Milan, should you fancy some top-quality shopping and dining. Colico is just one of several towns that surround the edges of the beautiful Lake Como, and you can make the trip south, taking in Bellagio, Lierna and a number of other worthwhile stops along the way, or head anti-clockwise around the lake and visit Gravedona and Menaggio.

Weather in Colico, Italy

A holiday rental in Colico is best enjoyed during late spring or early summer, when temperatures are warm without being overbearing. The mercury plummets in winter, but the crisp air and crystal clear waters of Lake Como mean that this is still a great time to visit the area.

It was more beautiful than we imagined. Claudia & Beppe welcomed us with fresh flowers, wine, a lovely pasta meal, and a fruit tarte, so that we didn't have to worry about preparing a meal after our long journey. We were so surprised. Beppe met us there and explained everything to us. Claudia visited us the following day to share a glass of wine with us and to introduce herself. Claudia's mama was close at hand if we needed anything at all throughout our stay. They are a wonderful family. So kind and couldnt do enough for us. Everything was perfect and we had the best holiday ever. Would definitely recommend this holiday - just outstanding.
