Lombardy 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.

Faggeto Lario area: Exploring the village of Faggeto Lario guests will find many fascinating buildings, ancient piazzas, medieval passageways and romantic churches.

The village provides some basic amenities for residents including a delicatessen, restaurant and cafe/bar. Due to its hillside location a car is essential for convenience and ease of movement to the lake front and the other nearby towns.

The charming and very pretty lake front is just a short drive away by car from the village and features many pretty harbours and local beauty spots. The cosmopolitan city of Como can be reached by car in less than 25 minutes and provides a wide variety of cafes, bars, restaurants, boutique shops, galleries and tourist sites such as the famous Duomo, the elegant Villa Olmo, the Volta museum and the funicular railway.

                                  Ski: 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. 100K
