Holiday homes and rentals in Lake Como

A stunning lakeside holiday

Homes in Lake Como are on the hillside around the edge of the beautiful, tranquil lake, so no matter where you are you’ll be certain to get either a gorgeous view over the water, or a striking mountain vista. The lake is in the shape of an upside down ‘Y’, with the homes available all around its coastline, from the vibrant resort of Bellagio in the centre, to the gothic architecture of the city of Como in the south.

A tremendous choice of mansions and homes

With a generous selection of vacation homes, those who prefer their own space will be delighted with the beautiful range on offer. Terraces and gardens look over the panoramic view of the lake and the surrounding mountains. Attractive and spacious apartments are all designed with open terraces so you don’t even need to leave the property to soak in the scenery.

Holidays in Lake Como

The area and getting around

A lake of many treasures

The shores of Lake Como are home to a number of towns and cities, from historic Verana to the majestic villas of Bellagio and the colourful fishing village of Varenna, there is so much to explore along the spectacular shores of this beautiful part of Italy. The city of Como is a cultural centre, with art galleries, museums and churches to discover. In contrast, Varenna, on the east shore halfway up Lake Como, is a riot of delightfully coloured traditional buildings and cobbled streets – other than the pavement outside the Church of San Giogio which is solid marble!

Where the winds blow

In the north of Lake Como you’ll find the peaceful town of Damoso, where the reliable breeze has made it the place to be seen for windsurfers and dinghy sailors, as well as for water skiers and fans of other such outdoor pursuits. Here in Damaso, unlike the other areas of the lake, this is not so much a shopping destination but more a place for sports enthusiasts. This old-world town also offers quaint narrow alleyways which plunge directly down to the blue waters of the lake.

Travellers and activities

Lake Como for couples

The beautiful Lake Como is ideal for a blissful romantic getaway. Explore the delights of the winding cobbled streets of the towns around the lake, and discover hidden gastronomic delights in the exquisite bars and restaurants of the enchanting towns. Fancy a swim but not in the lake? Pick one of Lake Como’s many lidos and sip cocktails together in between the dips. Walk the Lovers’ Walkway across the cantilevered path over the water in Varenna before exploring the delightful town beyond, and enjoy the stunning sunsets over the Alps at the end of a wonderful day spent together. Lake Como is a lovers’ paradise.

Lake Como for sports enthusiasts

Lake Como has something for every sports lover. Hikers will adore the spectacular routes through the hills and mountains, and for those who prefer to trek on wheels, a mountain bike trail starting from Bellano gives you many options for exploration. Golfers will be delighted by the numerous outstanding courses available, and those who prefer their sport on water should head to the north of the lake where sailors and windsurfers take full advantage of the gentle but regular breezes.

A well as being one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe, Lake Como is one of the deepest too, reaching 425 meters!

Top 5 travel tips in Lake Como

1.Have fun riding the funicular

The funicular train takes visitors up an incredible 496 metres above the lake, starting from the Lake Como quayside and terminating at the charming village of Brunate. Take the funicular for one of the best views of the area and a fun trip up and down the mountain.

2.Be seen at the Volta Lighthouse

150 metres above Brunate, the Volte Lighthouse gives you magnificent views over the Alps. The lighthouse is named after Como-born scientist Alessandro Volta, credited with the invention of the battery.

3. Ride the waters of Lake Como in style

You’ve seen it from above, now take the ferry from one Lake Como town to another and take in the vistas from the water. Choose a ferry with a bar and sip a glass of wine as the dramatic mountains open up in front of you.

4. Learn to cook Italian food

Viator offers a 4-hour cooking class where you can learn how to make speciality Italian pasta dishes using seasonal, local fresh ingredients. The classes are held in the lakeside village Mandello del Lario and include lunch and drinks!

5.Visit nature’s treasure at Orrido di Bellano caves

Gouged out of the rock by millions of years of rushing water, the caves, waterfalls and gorges at Orrido di Bellano give an extraordinary insight into the power of mother nature to create beauty beyond words. Walkways built into the rock give safe and accessible views of this natural gem.
