Make a holiday rental house or villa in Lake Como, Italy your home away from home

Lake Como, Italy, deep in the Lombardy region, is a haven of peace and serenity, just half an hour from the vigorous life styles of Milan. The snowy peaks and lush Mediterranean vegetation give Lake Como a magnificently tranquil atmosphere, and the area has become synonymous with relaxing or romantic getaways. Since the days of the Roman Empire, visitors have traveled for many miles to see the blue waters, wooded mountains and luxurious villas of Lake Como.

Things to do on holiday in Lake Como, Italy

Lake Como itself is an ideal spot to enjoy sailing, swimming, windsurfing and kite-surfing to name a few of the water sport activities popular available from a villa on the banks.

Walking and cycling holidays are hugely popular around Lake Como. Tours on bike and foot are available of some of the better known trails, but with so much idyllic countryside to be enjoyed, taking a map and exploring is a magnificent way to discover this wonderful region when staying in a self catering Lake Como villa.

However, a huge majority of your holiday spent in a Lake Como villa will undoubtedly be spent relaxing and enjoying both the scenery and company.

Places to holiday in Lake Como, Italy

Bellagio, ‘the pearl of the lake’, has the pick of the locations on the banks of Lake Como, where the two forks of Lake Como split. Offering awe-inspiring views, rich cultural heritage and historic gardens, a Lake Como villa in Bellagio will not fail to impress and relax any visitor.

Varenna is a magnificently peaceful resort on the shore of Lake Como. Smaller than Bellagio, it does however boast a magnificent castle offering stunning views down the lake, and a myriad of water sport possibilities. As a mid-lake fishing village, boats and sailing are in the blood, and it is also a great base to set off on mountain treks.

The ancient town of Gravedona sits peacefully on the banks of Lake Como, sheltered by the mountains. It is one of the most picturesque areas of the lake, characterized by small, intimate squares and quaint historic monuments, churches and religious events, not to mention a wealth of sporting and leisure activities, from sports centres to nature-tourism.

Weather in Lake Como, Italy

From March until late October is when the villas of Lake Como are at their busiest, when sailing, windsurfing, hiking and cycling are best enjoyed. Temperatures average around 29°C in July and August, making Lake Como accommodation a hugely pleasant place to be. During the winter, many hotels and restaurants close, but the self catering villas still offer a stunningly peaceful retreat from the bustle of everyday life, and snow is not unusual in January, making Lake Como even more beautiful.

Travel to Lake Como, Italy

Access to holiday rentals in Lake Como comes from Milan and Bergamo, by train, bus or car. Cheap flights to Lake Como arrive into Milan Airport (MXP), provided by a range of ‘no frills’ airlines depending on your departure point from the UK.

She gave us a really comprehensive introduction the the apartment and advice on places to see, the local shop and nearby eating places. The apartment was modern and very well equipped. There was ample space to park the car at the apartment. There is WiFi but don't expect it to be as good as you get at home. From the balcony there was a view of the lake and surrounding mountains. The apartment is pet friendly and the stairway leading from the balcony was gated. Gina was very helpful throughout our stay and it was a pleasure to have met her. I would certainly stay here again if we visit Lake Como again.
