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

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.

                                                                                    LCBR is located in a very peaceful and tranquil setting, where the senses can be soothed in the beautiful outdoor space, listening to the lake lap onto the shore and watching boats bobing gently to and fro. The garden and private lakeside bathing area are more then adequately furnished with quality furnature, where every thought has been given to guests comfort. The viletta's are clean, comfortable and nicely furnished with beautiful views over the lake from a private balcony. The kitchen has everything one may need for 'holiday' cooking and most guests prepared food indoors and would eat out at the tables provided around the garden, this had a little community feel about it. There are also barbiques in the outdoor area which we used and would recomend. We found Eric and his team to be friendly, helpful and professional. Eric has a wealth of information about the local area and was around the resort on a daily baisis to ensure that geusts had everything needed to enjoy thier holiday. Pognana Lario itself is a quiet little village, with a cafe, supermarket with butcher and one resuarant, all three can meet your needs. We frequented Peppo's Cafe and felt like locals there, it was extremely friendly offering good homecooked food at resonable prices (you can buy bus tickets from Peppo's which is cheaper than buying on bus). The supermarket was also very friendy, stocking everthing you would need. We would recommend the butcher, particulrly for barbiqueing!! Getting around Lake Como from Pognana is extremely easy; the ferry is a 5 minuite walk away and buses run frequently in both directions from outside Peppo's. We liked to take the ferry to Cernobio and then walk along the walk way (about 5K) to Como spend the day there and then take a ferry back to Pognana. A peaceful base for couples to explore Lake Como.

The apartment was well equipped and had a lovely view of the Lake. I would recommend this apartment it is in a great position to discover all areas of the lake the bus stops just up the road and the boats are just down the road to take taxis around the lake.
