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.

Flights to Colico, Italy

Colico is an important transport hub, and has good rail and bus links with Milan. As a result, the cheapest and easiest method of reaching your holiday destination is through a budget flight to Milan, and the use of public transport or a hire car for the second leg of the journey.

Lovely well presented apartment

5 of 5
We were met at the ground floor apartment by Gigliola who is very warm and welcoming. There is lots of information on where to visit. A beautiful welcome pack had been prepared with enough food for a breakfast and dinner. Gigliola even passed us some home grown vegetables in the week. The apartment is clean, modern and well equipped, with everything you might need. There are basic supplies there, so you don't need to rush to the supermarket on day one. The kitchen is very modern and a pleasure to use. Parking is available near to the apartment. There is a nice garden at the front with sun for most of the day. There are plenty of loungers and even outdoor toys for children. We enjoyed eating some meals at the table overlooking the lake. A car is essential. The apartment is well placed to get to all the main places and to reach the ferry terminal in Menaggio for crossings. We managed to visit all the main places. There is a local shop further up hill and other supermarkets about fifteen minutes away by car. It is a fifteen minute walk down hillside steps or a quick drive to the lake and beach area which is lovely for a walk or sunbathing. There are a couple of nice restaurants and bars and others can be reached by car in ten minutes. Night life in Lake Como generally is low key. Gigliola is a lovely host. She lives close by and is always happy to give help, we thought she was a real people person but she was never intrusive. We would highly recommend this apartment if you visit Lake Como.

lovely rustic apartment on the upper west shore of Lake Como

5 of 5
Very pleasant and well-equipped apartment in a peaceful location. It is a couple of km uphill from the main road going along the west side of the lake, but there was no traffic noise. The approach road is narrow and twisty so care is needed. There is also a shortcut footpath to the shore where there is a stony beach. Swimming was fine. The weather was hot but there was a cool breeze from the lake. This part of the lake is where a lot of watersports are available. There is no shortage of nice restaurants, bars and ice-cream shops in the neighbouring villages. The apartment had a lovely private garden and good WiFi. Thanks to Maria for her hospitality.
