Vercana is a municipality in the Province of Como in the Italian region Lombardy. It is situated on the western side of the lake, approximately 45km north east of Como and has a population of around 750.
Vercana consists of individual hamlets which line the banks of the river Livo, on the slopes of Pizzo Sasso Canale, which looks down onto Lake Como. It is a beautiful village which nestles above Domaso, on the northern shore of the lake and was once an old fishing village. There is a truly unrivalled panoramic view from Vercana overlooking the wonderful nature reserve of 'Pian di Spagna', Monte Legone lying to the east and the alps to the north.
The village has modest facilities; a small grocery store and a bakery, however it does have an amazing panoramic restaurant, complete with a wood burning Pizza oven. A footpath from Vercana leads down into the town of Domaso, approximately 2km away and there are numerous restaurants en route. Local beaches and water sports centres are close by and it is an ideal starting point for mountain bike and hiking tours.
The Church of San Salvatore was built in the 15th century and has Baroque architecture. It is located prominently in the Piazza at Vercana, where it enjoys remarkable views over the lake. The interior of the Church has beautiful frescoes as well as some outstanding statues and sculptures.
Lombardy - Lake Como Area:
The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.
Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.
It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.
All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.
Warming, in spring and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

The holiday was fantastic.
The holiday was fantastic. What a wonderful apartment and in such a fabulous location as well. Not too far out of it but away from all the noise and traffic. For us both the apartment was easily big enough and very comfortable. Shame we could not watch anything English on the television though. Still we had our I~Pod to listen to! The pool we had to ourselves and the views from it were breathtaking. Can't thank you all enough for a smooth holiday booking. You kept us up to date all the way and everything was well explained. The weather was on the main hot. Just the odd day of rain. The gardens were stunning. Villa Balbianello was our favorite. Also Villa Melzi and Carlotta. Verenna was our best village. Just what we would expect of a traditional lake side town/village. Food was good from the basic pizza through to a three course meal. No complaints at all.
