Moltrasio is a municipality in the Province of Como in the Italian region Lombardy. Moltrasio has always been very popular with celebrities and it was well known that Gianni Versace resided here as often as he could in his beloved Villa Le Fontanelle. George Clooney frequently stays at his holiday home in Villa Oleandra, Laglio, which is next to Moltrasio. It was also in Moltrasio that Sir Winston Churchill decided to relax after WWII in the summer of 1945.
The village weaves its way from the shore of the lake up to the slopes of Monte Bisbino. The grey coloured stone found here is well known throughout the area and was used by the Maestri Comacini for building. Many important finds were made during the construction of the lake road in 1910, some dating back to pre Roman times holding great historic importance. A plague struck the village in the sixteenth century and the population was totally decimated.
Moltrasio is a charming little village, well known for its waterfall , the water of which flows away under three Roman bridges. It has lake view restaurants where you can sample local and freshly prepared dishes and regional wine. There is a 'lido' which is a little sandy beach ( but you do have to pay an entrance fee). some shops, a bank, post office and a Church.
During your stay it is well worth visiting Villa Passalacqua (Palace of Moltrasio). It has many historical features and some of the cellars and walls were part of the Monastery of the Humiliated. The small Roman church of St. Agata stands next to the villa.
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 tranquility 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. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

Golf Club Villa D'Este Via per Cantù, 22030 Montorfano, Como ~
A beautiful 18-hole course designed by Peter Gannon which winds its way through chestnut, ash and pine trees sheltering golfers even from the intense August heat. Villa d'Este is considered one of the most challenging and difficult par 69's in Europe, even though it is the site of several amateur competitions each year. The club house overlooks several holes and a spacious view of the Montorfano lake.
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.
