We really enjoyed our week at Casa Linda. It was the ideal location for seeing Lago Di Como from our terrace, and by taking the ferries that were so close by. Most things about the apartment were just right, especially the comfortable bed and plenty of hanging, and shelf and drawer space. It also was nice to have the supermarket so close by. I took too many pictures from the terrace and around the lake to include, but I would put in one of early morning from our 'room with a view'.
The beautiful resort town of Bellagio offers a picturesque setting, with cafes and a wide range of shops to enjoy as well the gardens of Villa Melzi and Villa Serbelloni.

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.
There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.
There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.
The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
