Make a holiday apartment in Vercana your home away from home

Nestled on a mountain above the village of Domaso on the western branch of Lake Como, Vercana is an ideal holiday location filled with sun, nature and freshwater activities. Visitors can enjoy peaceful lakeside strolls, mountain biking and plenty of fabulous views. Vercana is a clutch of different hamlets along the River Livo on the slopes of Pizzo Sasso Canale. The village has a grocery store and a small bakery, but a footpath leads down to Domaso which has a few more amenities, and the walk takes the visitor past several restaurants.

HomeAway offers a good selection of holiday apartments in Vercana that are perfect for groups of all sizes, from couples all the way up to large families. Amenities such as internet access, terraces and washing machines make visitors feel immediately at home. They enjoy stunning views of the water as do HomeAway’s collection of beautiful Vercana holiday villas. With weekly rental prices that start at £300 per week these are excellent value for money and priced more reasonably than rentals in other Lake Como locations like Lecco.

Things to do

-Watersports:The views are one thing, but most visitors come to Vercana to get out on Lake Como. Canoes, sailboats and other aquatic sporting equipment can be hired from the many water centres that dot the area. Some offer beginners courses in windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing.

-Historic buildings: There isn’t a lot of ancient history to be glimpsed at Vercana, but one of its most fascinating sights is the Baroque architecture of the Church of San Salvatore, built in the 15th century. Inside is just as rewarding as there are beautiful frescoes, statues and sculptures.

-Beaches: The beach at Domaso is one of the main attractions in the area. The long stretch of sand and smooth pebbles is an idyllic spot for sunbathing and for a gentle swim in the calm, shallow water near the edge. Consequently, it is suitable for families with young children.

-Outdoor activities: As visitors with holiday apartments in Vercana will discover, Mother Nature has smiled on this part of the world. The astounding scenery can be explored by walking along lakeside paths, going for treks in the hills and by taking mountain bike tours. Vercana is above the Pian di Spagna, a protected wetlands area that is a nest place for numerous bird species and another wonderful place to explore.

Weather in Vercana

The climate around Lake Como is similar to Mediterranean, one of the reasons why Vercana holiday villas are booked throughout the year. The summer days are long and warm with temperatures of between 24 and 27°C in June, July and August. January is the coldest month where the average temperature drops to 6°C.

Travel to Vercana

A hire car is essential to get around Vercana and other lakeside towns and villages. The nearest airport to the village is Milan-Malpensa Airport (111 kilometres) and the nearest railway stations are Como-San Giovanni (80 kilometres) and Varenna-Esino (27 kilometres).

Magical!

5 of 5
This was the second time we have stayed at this wonderful home, the hosts Romina and Fabio cannot do enough to make you welcome. From the moment you drive up the hill to see that wonderful view you feel like you have found your own piece of paradise with the amazing view of the lake and mountains. The property is home from home you want for nothing here, the beds are very comfortable and all facilities are top class. The property now benefits from a wonderful hot tub facing the view where you can sit and chill in the evenings. We will definitely be back and hope to see you both soon! The Smith Family (Liverpool)

Stunning views, immaculate property

5 of 5
We stayed here for 3 nights as a family of 4. After a long drive from Lake Garda,the views from both inside and outside the house were amazing,the photos do not do it justice. We were met by Franco,the owner, who despite speaking no English,managed to show us around.( his wife came the next day to check everything was ok and she spoke English) We paid extra for bedding which was all fine, we didn't pay for towels as had brought our own,but didn't realise that dish towels were also not included,however there was an internal drying rack so all fine. Our only surprise was the request on arrival for 200 euros,for a damage deposit,which we hadn't been expecting, however this was returned on our last day with no problem at all. A car is definitely necessary,the zigzag road up to the house is about 3 km long from the main part of Gera Lario. Gera Lario itself is quite small but we managed to enjoy the small beach area there. We also enjoyed the drive to Switzerland(Vicosprano) which only took over one hour from the house. The towns further down the west coast of Lake Como are within an easy drive(20/30 mins) Menaggio,boat to Bellagio etc,which we were only aware of on our way back to airport ( very scenic) We would return if ever back in Lake Como.
