I decided to suprise my girlfirend with a romantic getaway to Lake Como. My parents always took their holidays there and I wanted to see what I was missing! I found a romantic looking studio apartment that was located in a complex just above Varenna. When my girlfriend and I arrived we got out the car immediately and were both amazed by the views of the lake. We didn't think it was going to get even better until we stepped into the perfect romantic retreat, Ulivo 8. It was very clean, well equipped, and had a very cosy feel. We had impressive views overlooking the lake. The studio was a perfect base to come back to in the evenings. The space was perfect for 2, and all the furniture was brand new, and technologies were modern. I definitely recommend this Studio for anyone wanting a romantic getaway! Also the price is just right! We will certainly look to return.

Other Activities: Float Plane/Helicopter,Funicular Railway,Public Villas & Gardens,

Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club celebrating 100 years this year and 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. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays EU 55, Weekends and Holidays EU 70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental EU 36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

There is also a first class Golf Course at Varesse for those staying nearer to the Lake Maggorie area.

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
