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.

Simply heaven.

5 of 5
We stayed here with friends last week and had a wonderful time here. The residence is even better than the photographs indicate, always a nice surprise! Lots of space inside and outside to take advantage of that view, which it must be said, we never bored of. Sala is a quiet village with a few shops and restaurants dotted about, a lovely wine bar, deli mini market and butchers. It was like stepping back in time and just what we needed. We took a ferry onto the lake, easily the stand out highlight of our trip and dined on the Island in front of the home. Sala is a hidden gem. Long may it stay that way.
