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

Ossuccio is a small, picturesque town on the shores of Lake Como in Lombardy. With the lake on the doorstep and the location at the foothills of the mountains, Ossuccio makes a great escape from the city for beach lovers and nature lovers alike. A self-catering villa in Ossuccio offers a tranquil retreat for families and couples, within easy reach of the many of the area’s main attractions.

Things to do in Ossuccio, Italy

Many of the visitors to Ossuccio are on a pilgrimage to the Sacro Monte, a UNESCO World Heritage site located 2.5km outside of the town. The Sacro Monte is a site of 14 chapels, built in the Baroque style, which are of great religious significance in the Catholic faith.

Visitors to Ossuccio can also explore the Villa del Balbiano, a 16th century villa on the outskirts of the town, with beautiful architectural design, frescoes and traditional Mediterranean gardens.

Although it is not on Italy’s coast, visitors to Ossuccio can enjoy the Ospealetto beach on the shores of Lake Como. Here, visitors can laze away the day on the sand, take a dip in the lake and relax with a cocktail from the bar.

For the more active visitor, there are lots of water sports on offer on the Lake, including sailing, kite surfing and canoeing, and hiking opportunities are available in the mountains. Alternatively, a more relaxed walk around the lake shore is particularly pleasant at sunset before retiring to your holiday home.

Places to visit on holiday in Ossuccio, Italy

Only a 10-minute boat trip from Ossuccio will take you to Bellagio, one of the lake’s larger towns, where visitors can wander around Villa Serbelloni and Villa Melzi, browse the boutiques on the waterfront promenade, or pig out on traditional Italian far in one of the many cafes and restaurants.

Como is also easily accessed by either car or rail, only 26km south of Ossuccio along the lake shore. This is the largest town around the lake, and is home to some impressive sights, including a Gothic cathedral, and an art gallery. Visitors can also ride the funicular to the crest of the hill which sits above the town. From here there are spectacular views across the lake, making for a great photo opportunity.

Weather in Ossuccio, Italy

Lake Como is best enjoyed in the summer sunshine, when temperatures in Ossuccio reach up to around 25C. Winters are much cooler, with temperatures sometime dropping below freezing. There is a risk of showers pretty much all year round, but this makes for the perfect excuse to drop into a local cafe and sample a steaming bowl of pasta or a hot coffee.

LOCATION: Apartment location is superb as a base for touring the region with easy access from main lakeside road - but also has the quiet & peaceful ambiance of the pretty village of Sala Comacina which is reasonably close to main tourist centres. Supermarkets can be reached within minutes by car. Wonderful Welcome on arrival at property by Matteus and Milena, who were also very helpful when we contacted them during our stay, especially as they live in the region.

We were met at property and given thorough explanation / tour of the house. The property was spotlessly clean and well equipped for 6-8 people. Spacious rooms and large kitchen and bathrooms. The view from house was spectacular and in couple of weeks time, when trees have developed more autumnal colours will be even more so. We travelled as group of four adults. A 40 minute stroll on the 'Greenway' brings you in to Lenno with cafes, shops, bars and restaurants. Boats leave from Lenno to many other locations on the Lake including Como town. The larger supermarket in Lenno has a relatively large selection of fresh food, beer and wine if not tempted with local eateries and is a short 5 minute drive away from the property. The bus stop is also a very short walk away and tickets for the bus can be purchased from the local café/bar. We would definitely stay at this property again.

                                                                                      Casa Klimt is an absolutely charming house in the pleasant village of Sala Comacina. Its quirky interior means it manages to be both spacious and cosy - from the large kitchen space, flagstone stairs climb to the floors above where there are further sitting rooms and three lovely bedrooms, plus several delightful, jasmine-scented terraces giving views onto the little cobbled piazza or across the lake to the hills beyond. The décor has been given a lot of thought, with beautiful, individual wooden pieces of furniture in the bedrooms, plenty of comfortable indoor and outdoor seating, and of course, Klimt artwork! The sun terrace with its little boat-dock below is the perfect place to sunbathe or enjoy an Aperol as the sun sets over the lake. Beyond the house, Sala Comacina has several lovely restaurants (perhaps none to beat the Lido pizzeria, a short stroll along the lakefront, as a place to see local life). There is a little bakery / grocery (with a very friendly owner) and a butchers shop. Having parked the car in the secure parking spot (about 100 metres from the house), we didn't use it again the whole week, travelling either across the lake on the frequent ferry that serves the village, or on the excellent bus service that runs along the lakeside road. We spent a magical week here (thank you, Maria, and Robby) and can't wait for a chance to return.
