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.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Apartment Fabiana in Ossuccio its a wonderful place with fantastic views and so convenient for seeing all of Lake Como's delights. We drove around the lake took the ferries and car ferries across the lake, took the Venicular in Como to Brunate and the cable car to Pigra. Crossed the mountains to Lake Lugano. Had wonderful food at some great restaurants and loved Villa del Biabianello and its gardens located on the peninsula at Lenno. Recommend you take the water taxi back to Lenno to enjoy the views of the Villa from the lake. Two supermarkets within a five minute drive from the property. the walk up to the Sacro Monte di Ossuccio was worth the effort to view the fourteen chapels that line the path to the Church.. All in all a fantastic holiday at an apartment that had a stunning view across the lake and mountains the colours of which changed throughout the day. Highly recommend the apartment which was immaculate, the pool area which had sun loungers and chairs for guest. Most of all how friendly the other residents, guests of the apartment and the residents of Ossuccio were.

It is very spacious, clean, has every item and amenity you would need, and the view is even more beautiful in person. We were there with our 3 young kids, so I can attest this is very kid friendly, but would work equally well for an adult only group. Ossuccio is lovely and within driving and/or ferry distance of all the main sites (Como, Bellagio, Menaggio, Varenna, etc). We received excellent service from beginning to end, and especially appreciated the in person check-in/out from Maria Rosa and her husband. Highly recommend!
