Car: Recommended

Bellagio: Outdoor Extreme Sports Club and Jungle Raider Park are both located on the hillside above the town.

Pognana Lario provides a real sense of authentic Italian living, with a timeless village appeal and a local array of amenities to complement your self-catering stay.

The quaint cobbled streets of nearby Bellagio (25 minutes drive away) are lined with local craft shops and designer boutiques. Guests can also enjoy a fabulous choice of cafes and dining out options here, during the long summer months. The famous visitor attraction of Villa Melzi is also located in the town. For those seeking adventure, Bellagio’s Outdoor Extreme Sports Club and Varenna’s Jungle Raider Park are both within easy reach by car/ferry. The car and passenger ferry service from Bellagio also offers the perfect excuse to enjoy a day of sightseeing in Varenna, Menaggio and further along the Tremezzina shore.

A holiday on Lake Como offers a wide range of leisure pursuits to enjoy, from lazy Lido days, Spa treatments, hiking, cycling, tennis, golf, sightseeing, water sports, horse riding, quad biking, paragliding, sea plane trips and skiing.

From the villa the cosmopolitan highlights and convenient transport links of Como city are within a 20 minute drive away. From Como guests are just a 1 hour drive away from Lugano and Milan.

Further Sport & Adventure Activities: Bike Rentals, Boat Mooring, Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Float Plane/Helicopter, Funicular Railway, Park, Public Transportation, Public Villas & Gardens and Rowing Boats.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Skiing:

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.
