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).

Beautifully sited and appointed property villa.

5 of 5
We have recently returned from a weeks holiday in this beautiful villa which has been very well renovated and decorated in true Italian style. It is very spacious, clean and the modern kitchen came fully equipped with everything you could possibly need ...and more! Romina and Fabio (the owners) even stocked the American style fridge/freezer and cupboards with some essentials, including a bottle of prosecco ! The views from the villa are breathtaking. The garden is very well maintained with a large lawn and terrace and with a more than adequate undercover dining area. The decking area was clean and sheltered. Fabio came early every morning to maintain the pool. Please be aware that the pool is solar heated and although we had good weather for September, the pool was very cold. The hot tub was a massive hit with our family. Who could not sit and relax in 40c with a chilled glass of wine and absorb the beautiful views of the lake (even in the rain)! The villa is set in an elevated position about 15 minutes walk to a large supermarket (which we discovered closes for 3 hours over lunch). Romina and Fabio were extremely helpful in providing us with a lift back to the villa with all our food and wine. Good restaurants can be found down by the nearby ferry port, again around 15 minutes walk away. Romina and Fabio made us truly welcome. They were incredibly attentive but by no means intrusive. They live approx 200 metres from the villa and we used WhatsApp to converse with Romina. Romina speaks excellent English and was more than happy to make restaurant and taxi bookings. She can even arrange for a chef to come and cook for you in the villa should you so wish. We would highly recommend this villa and hope to return.

Awesome apartment in quite area, stunning views

5 of 5
We loved our stay in this absolutely stunning villa. It was surprise for my parents, and they straight away commented on beautiful views of the lake from the apartment. The big terrace is one of the best things of this apartment. Four of us could lay and sunbathing on the terrace, we were having breakfast and dinners there, it was so beautiful and relaxing. There is also shade in the terrace, for who doesn't want much sun. Also while laying on the bed we could see the lake and mountains, and beautiful lights at night. Another thing is that apartment was very clean, made in beautiful style with big modern comfortable bed and some old style decorated furniture. Two adults were sleeping in sofa/bed, and felt very comfortable. My niece who is 10 yo, loved her bunk bed. Very quite area, and private parking - which is really good thing on the lake Como. Bathroom is very clean with fresh towels and all things we possibly needed. Kitchen is a bit small, and we would like to have more then 2 cooking burners, but one night we cooked BBQ in outdoor area- which is really good advantage of the place. Owner of the apartment Andrea was very helpful, he spoke a good English, he gave us advise which places to visit, where to park and how to get to the beach, or anything else we needed in the apartment. Good wifi signal - that was great! It was hard to find a place at the first time, so please print a google map. You will need a car. I think accommodation play a big part in any holiday, if you feel like home, relaxed, in quite area, with amazing views - whole experience is different. We all would love to come back - same one bedroom apartment (because of large terrace:) , and will recommend to everyone. Diana, Australia Family of 4 adults and one child.
