Dongo, where we are located, is an old fishing village on the northwest shore of the Lake Como 15 minutes north of Menaggio. it is a paradise for windsurfers and sailors who can enjoy the lake year round thanks to The Breva, a reliable southern breeze blowing on the lake from March to October, and the Tivano, a cooling summer breeze, which together guarantee a mild climate for tourists and sportsmen. For windsurf-lovers two of the best European schools are located here. You can enjoy numerous water sports or endless sunbathing on our beautiful public beaches, either on Dongo Beach or chose from several other local beaches.. The village is also a starting point for day trips to picturesque villages that can be reached by car, bus, or ferry/boat. The elegant village of Menaggio is 15 minutes away, a lovely place for walking, shopping, or tasting real Italian gelato. Bellagio is approachable by car or ferry, and in just an hour you are in Como or Lugano. For mountain lovers there are walks through small and sunny villages and, if you love hiking or skiing, St. Moritz, the famous year-round resort, is within an easy reach (less than two hours drive).
