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.

Flights to Ossuccio, Italy

Ossuccio is served by Milan’s Malpensa Airport (MXP), which is 83km southwest of the town, 45km from the centre of Milan itself. Car hire is recommended in this area given the quite rural location, and all of the major operators have a base at the airport. Alternatively, there are rail links from the airport to Ossuccio self-catering accommodation and several other towns in the region.

                                                                                                      We stayed here over the winter holidays with a group of 5. Upon getting to property, we were pleased with how easy it was to park in the covered garage. We only had one car, but there could be room in the garage for two smaller cars, and there is also parking available off-street right outside the property. When we got into the house there was a small gift waiting for us with Prosecco (score!) so we could celebrate after our long day of travel. I was pleased that the house was very clean and organized upon our arrival as well. The home is quite large compared to others we looked at, and with our group of five we never felt like we were in each other’s ways. All of the rooms have gorgeous views of the lake; I especially love that it is north-facing so we get to see the Alps in the background. The kitchen was easy to cook/clean in, with a gas stove and oven, large refrigerator, and dishwasher. There is also a washer/dryer on the downstairs floor, which we used once and was easy to figure out. It got fairly cold outside during our stay, so I was afraid that the house might get cold and uncomfortable. I was delighted though with how well the radiators were able to heat the rooms, nobody felt too cold the whole time we were there (not even in the loft!). Being the winter, I didn’t expect too much to be open in town since Lake Como is fairly tourist driven. However, while there were a few businesses closed for winter, it seemed like most of Argegno was still open. There are lots of locals who live in the area, so restaurants still fill up in the evenings (although we never had trouble getting a table). I highly recommend Bistro Argegno if you’re looking for a good place to get a drink/appetizers. Café Columbo is also great, and is the go-to place for bicyclists during the day and locals in the evenings. Both of these restaurants, as well as the rest of downtown Argegno, are only a 5-minute walk from the property. We also traveled to some nearby towns. Como is not far away (20ish minute drive), and is where we got most of our groceries (at a store called Bennet). The ferry has limited hours over the winter but we did take it once to Menaggio which was lovely. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can drive 2 hours to Tirano and take the train into Switzerland. The trip is gorgeous, but is definitely an all-day event. Overall our stay at Bella Vista sul Lago was amazing, and I cannot wait to stay here again in the summer months!
