Mezzegra: Tremezzo is located directly in the middle of the famous West coast of Lake Como, where for centuries, the noble European families have been known to have vacationed in their summer residences. Mezzegra is a lovely village, with romantic access to the lake. It is located 5 km from Menaggio and is famous for the Villa Carlotta, constructed in 1750. The Villa has been turned into a museum with a botanical garden. To travel to Lenno, is a mere 2km. Bellaggio and Varenna are only a short ferry ride away.

Low and off-season: In the low and off-season, even in the winter, this region is beautiful. There are fewer tourists, but there are still many attractions. The weather tends to remain stable and mild. This region is fantastic for relaxing, without having to travel long distances. Even in the winter season, we have sunny days, 90% of the time. Enjoy them! The Villa Carlotta is always beautiful and the sea adds a special romantic touch in the low and off-season.

Trips: Take the time to visit the beautiful historic buildings and botanical gardens around Lake Como - such as Villa Carlotta, extremely photogenic, featuring romantic statuary and lush gardens; Villa Ballbianello, a film location recently seen in Casino Royale, the latest James Bond movie. Italian National Trust property since 1988, the villa hosts a great collection of art, antique furniture & carpets. The gardens are also delightful and are open to visitors. In Varenna, a short ferry ride from Menaggio are two more stunning properties, Villa Monastero and Villa Cipressi - both have beautiful gardens that are open to the public between April - October. In Bellagio you can be taken on guided tours around Villa Serbelloni, a property owned by the Rockefella Foundation since 1959. The lakes of Como & Lugano offer the most scenic spots in all of Italy. Ferries carry passengers across there shimmering waters from town to town one of the main attractions of visiting the Lake.

I want to again thank you so much for your outstanding service

changing properties very quickly. At my place of work, we call it a diving catch.

Your team transformed a bad situation into a great one.

The new property was superb. We enjoyed every moment spent there. A very, very nice house, saving the end of our vacation, celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary in Bellagio.

Prachtige lokatie, kan wat onderhoud gebruiken

  • 3 of 5

De lokatie, het uitzicht is schitterend . De informatie van Happy Holiday Homes is erg uitgebreid . Ook vriendelijke ontvangst bij ophalen vd sleutels . En problemen werden ook snel opgelost .

De bedden waren veel te hard . Te weinig en slecht onderhouden ligstoelen voor bij het zwembad ( je moet zelf je stoelen meenemen naar het zwembad ). Het appartement was niet goed schoongemaakt . Zitgedeelte überhaupt niet. De kelder is erg vochtig , ontvochtiger moest dagelijks geleegd worden , kan niet gezond zijn. Duurt erg lang voordat je warm water hebt.

Here guests will find a selection of supermarkets, a very good Bakery, Bar with fresh ice-cream and pasteries and a selection of restaurants. A Park ideal for children can also be enjoyed.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course.

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).

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 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.

The charming town of Lenno which features a very pretty promenade, a variety of cafes and night-time bars and not forgetting the famous Villa del Balbianello is located next to town of Mezzegra, and the famous hotelier town of Tremezzo with its wide array of cafes, view points, the famous visitor attraction of Villa Carlotta and its useful Ferry service is also situated next to Mezzegra, and can be reached easily by car.
