Location ~

The hillside setting offers close proximity to the surrounding Agroturismo restaurants, hiking routes, the prestigious Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club and the Loveno Tennis Club.

Just 6 minutes’ drive away, the supermarkets, shops, restaurants, Central Lake ferry stop and picturesque lakeside centre of Menaggio can be reached. A beautiful lakeside promenade with views of Bellagio leads to mini golf and the Lido di Menaggio, just a short stroll away from the centre. At the Lido guests can easily unwind; with a sandy beach offering you the perfect excuse to enjoy a spot of sunbathing, with a chilled drink from the on-site bar. A fabulous on-site restaurant will keep you more than satisfied whilst the volley ball, kids park, lake and pool swimming opportunities will ensure everyone is kept happy. The Lido is also the perfect place to come to in the evenings; for a classic aperitif moment at the vibrant bar, an ambient evening meal or for a fun night of dancing under the stars.

By booking this holiday home you will get free acces to the lido di Menaggio. The Lido di Menaggio has swimming pools, a restaurant, a bar/discotheque, a kids club, boat rentals, a sandy beach, kite surfing and various sportive activities to do.

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.
