Make a holiday villa in Lecco your home away from home

Lecco sits on the most southerly point of the eastern shore of Lake Como and is surrounded by mountains. The historic old centre is characterised by its neat and narrow lanes that are lined by both old and modern buildings. No matter where you turn there are either mountain or lake views. The lake, Italy’s third largest, is the biggest draw here, offering numerous aquatic activities and the mountainous backdrop attracts hikers and climbers.

With so much beautiful scenery to enjoy, HomeAway has holiday villas in Lecco that offer panoramic views and provide easy access to the lake, mountains and town centre. Some are luxurious, prestige holiday properties boasting indoor or outdoor swimming pools. Lecco holiday apartments also enjoy good positions close to the water and mountains, and feature terraces or balconies to breathe in the fresh air and admire the vistas. All are equipped with such amenities as dishwashers, microwaves and coffee makers. In an area that has been blessed by nature, HomeAway has many other Lake Como holiday rentals in places such as Nesso and Gera Lario.

Things to do

-Sports: For watersports enthusiasts, Lake Como is an aquatic paradise with sailing, canoeing, windsurfing and kitesurfing on offer. Back on dry land there are several paths for cyclists around the lake. The Grigne and Resegone Mountains can be trekked and hiked. During the winter there's skiing on the slopes of Piani di Bobbio, di Artavaggio and delle Betulle.

-Historic monuments: There have been settlements here since before the arrival of the Romans. Although few traces of the ancient past remain there are many structures that are hundreds of years old. The Bridge Azzone Visconti, also called Old Bridge was built between 1336 and 1338. Inside the 18th-century Basilica of San Nicolò is the 12th-centiury Chapel of the Baptistery, part of the original church that was on this site.

-Food and drink: In Lecco and neighbouring lakeside towns and villages, fish and seafood dishes dominate. They include tagliolini with crab pulp and fish soup with saffron. With a holiday villa in Lecco tourists can visit a number of eateries that have terraces with lake and mountain views.

-Museums: Villa Manzoni is an elegant 17th-century residence that’s now a museum and art gallery. On the ground floor is the Manzoni Museum with grand rooms decorated with period furniture from the early part of the 19th century. The second floor hosts the town’s art gallery with more than 2,000 paintings and engravings from the 18th century to the present day. Palazzo Belgiojoso houses an archaeological museum.

Super modern apartment

4 of 5
We loved our stay in San Siro. It's a super apartment although perhaps a bit tight in the living area for more than 4 adults. Before we arrived I read a review where someone complained about the kitchen knives? I remember thinking how pathetic! Actually, Gary, you could do with a decent sharp bread knife, lol . Aside from that, it really is super and we would highly recommend

Excellent & well positioned for travel

5 of 5
This is an excellent property, very clean, light and well proportioned. We had an excellent stay, thoroughly enjoyable, this property is nice an quiet and the lovely pool is a welcome bonus. An excellent area in which to base yourself as public transport links, whether by road or water are excellent. We had a hired car but hardly needed it. I can really recommend this property for a nice relaxing holiday and will definitely be back.
