Thank you for a wonderful vacation on Lake Como. We truly enjoyed staying in your beautiful vacation home. It was even better than in the web photos.
The view from the terrace was great, but that is where the positives end.
The house has a damp issue which was being "band-aided" by the installation of 2 dehumidifiers on the lower level. We had water dripping from the wall of the stairwell that left a pool of water on the stairs when it rained. Other issues included: a single power outlet in the kitchen; broken bunk bed; extremely small pool;
In addition, for the price of the place you would expect WiFi to be available which it wasn't.
When we complained the company responded, however they kept us waiting and did not come out when they said they would causing a significant re-plan to one of our vacation days which was very disappointing.

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.
