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.

Very clean as was the pool.Great value. Quiet location,and only a short drive to the lake & supermarket, cafés Etc. I would recommend Tuesday market in Lenno, a great unexpected surprise. We will definitely return.

                                                                                                  We stayed here with friends for a family wedding and the home ticked all the boxes. The home really does have a simply stunning panoramic unspoiled lake view we never grew tired of gazing at. The apartment itself is neat and tidy and well appointed. Sala Comacina is a lovely village to explore, unspoiled and charming in equal measure. The apartment definitely has the best location on the residence in our view as located directly overlooking the lakes and mountains so there was no other homes to ruin the view plus the pool is located immediately behind the apartment so easy to reach, yet the pool area is shielded by tall shrubbery which meant we did not hear any other resident swimming. In fact apart from the sunday of arrival and of an early evening we had the pool to ourselves nearly every day. The walk to the garage takes 2 minutes up the hill so we certainly left fitter than when we arrived but felt a car was necessary to reach the supermarket and larger ferry (5 minutes drive). Having said that the village centre in Sala is reachable in 10 minutes on foot where there are a good selection of restaurants, The Tout Paris wine bar (our favourite) and a nice butcher, baker and convenience store, so we did not use the car that much during a star. The greenway walk way runs close to the apartment, lovely for some scenic strolls plus we dined on the island (all you can eat and drink) Hiring a boat from the boat hire co. in the village and exploring the lake was our favourite day of our stay as it gave the lake a different perspective viewing it from the water. Special thanks to Julie who met us on arrival and made sure we were settled in. We thought the holiday was just right for recharging our batteries and would not hesitate to return again, hopefully soon!

Our friends booked the home as a surprise for us and it could not have worked out better. The home has views to die for. The apartment itself is just as photographed (always a relief when travelling overseas) and was spotlessly clean on arrival with a lovely private balcony and a parking space (the home is located close to the parking with a private garage and the pool is located in front of the home) Ossuccio itself is very picturesque with a lovely village feel with some nice restaurants and lovely park for sunbathing as well as a bite to eat or drink at the lakeside bar. There is a large ferry stop and supermarket within 5 minutes drive of the home so we would definitely recommend hiring a car. We loved of our stay and would not hesitate to return again.
