This villa has the best terrace ever! Amazing views, great to watch roaring thunderstorms across the lake. The weather was mixed but we did manage to get a couple of days around the pool.
Hired a boat - great for teenagers. Hotel Metropole in Bellagio - great for lakeside dining. (No George Clooney) :(
If you want something special with amazing views, great food and service try AL VELII above Tremezzo. Conad Supermarket in Menaggio is very good. Thank you "Happy Holidays"

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.
