Carlazzo:
Carlazzo is one of the bigger villages in this area and has a convenient grocery shop and a selection of restaurants. There are many natural and artistic attractions which should not be missed, especially several churches. In particular the church of St. Giacomo and St. Fedele which rises in the centre of the village, the church of St. Stefano containing the famous organ which was created by Serassi in 1858, the church of St. Nazzaro and Celso and also the church of St. Giorgio in the hamlet of Gottro which is famous for its Romanesque bell tower.

Nearby, the charming Lugano lakeside town of Porlezza offers many amenities including High street shops, Cafes, Bars, Gelaterias and Boating possibilities. Lugano city is situated just a 20 minutes drive away and Lake Como, with its beautfiul lakeside attractions and towns is located just a 15 minutes drive away also.

Lombardy - Lake Lugano 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.

Warming, inspiring and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Lugano, 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.

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:
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.

The town on Lake Lugano provides a wide choice of local amenities including supermarkets, banks, lake view cafés and shops. The nearby Lago di Piano nature reserve is popular with walkers and cyclists and other local activities include horse riding, tennis, golf, swimming, sailing, kayaking and quad biking.

Menaggio on Lake Como is just a 17 minutes drive away and provides guests with fabulous starting point from where to explore Lake Como, with its splendid villas, botanical gardens, family friendly lidos and adventure parks.

Guests can enjoy fine country-style cuisine in the nearby Agroturismo of ���La Barcola’ also enjoy the local pizzerias and lake view restaurants which run southwards along the Tremezzina shore towards Como city.

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 resort is Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.80km.
