Car: Recommended

The lakeside village of Mezzegra is located along the central western lakefront of Lake Como and is ideally situated for guests to explore the famous attractions by car.

A 5 minute’s drive takes guests to the centre of the village which offers a family friendly bar serving freshly made ice-cream and pastries. The village also offers a grocery shop, two supermarkets, a very good local bakery, a lakefront restaurant and a sunny children’s park.

The historical lakeside town of Lenno offers a wider choice of local amenities as well as a very picturesque promenade and the Lido di Lenno with its sandy beach, fabulous restaurant and bar popular in the evenings by locals, visitors and the fashionable milanese. The famous Villa del Balbianello is situated on the other side of the bay of Lenno and can be reached easily by taxi boat or by foot.

Additional Sport & Adventure Activities include:

Bike Rentals, 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 Golf Club Menaggio beforehand to check course rules.

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 visibility 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 Madesimo and St. Moritz toward the Splugen Pass, which is approx.100km.
