The municipality of Sala Comacina is in the Province of Como, which is situated in the Italian region Lombardy. It has a population of around 630 inhabitants, is approximately 20km north east of Como and lies on the western side of the lake.
In the last century, the small medieval village of Sala Comacina was a already a popular holiday destination, as is evident from the large number of superb Villas dotted along the lake side. The 'Villa Rachele' situated on the headland 'Puncia' was once owned by Cesare Beccaria, where he was reputed to have entertained many famous writers.
Sala Comacina lies at the foot of Monte Costone, which makes a wonderful backdrop. Here you will find a good public beach and the idyllic lake front location makes this village so appealing. There are also restaurants, bars, shops and a bank in addition to a regular ferry service.
Take a boat trip over to the only Island on Como, named 'Isola Comacina', which offers guests a meal to remember in the Islands famous restaurant 'Locanda dell'Isola Comacina'. Apparently, the same menu has been served there since 1945, which certainly seems to be a good recommendation!
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 spriing 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 most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandro).
About the Manager
Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
It wasn’t until the last night we discovered restaurants within walking distance from our apartment. The only suggestion I have for that particular property is to provide a local map with information about the immediate area. It would be helpful to have a list of restaurants that are “walkable”, as well as a map of the greenway.
We rented a boat for the day, and it was fantastic! I would encourage anyone to do that.
I plan to use Happy Holiday Homes when booking my clients at Lake Como!

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.100km.
