On the shore of the lake there are water sports facilities (boat rental, sailing, windsurfing), and there are a number of scenic trekking routes that begin at the lake. Furthermore, San Siro is a pretty, ancient hamlet where you can still feel the atmosphere of the past and view the beautiful castle with arcades dating back to the year 1000 AD. In Menaggio, located 5 km from the house, there is a golf course and a tennis court. From Menaggio there are ferries to other villages on the shore and the lake islands. Como is located 30 km to the south. Lake Como is renowned for its luxuriant vegetation and its mild climate. In winter, in the sunniest areas such as Tremezzina, the temperature is never too cold. In summer, the heat is mitigated by the cool breezes off the lake. What to see: In Como - The Cathedral and Piazza S.Fedele with many 400-year-old buildings and the Basilica, one of the masterpieces of the Maestri Comacini (masters of Como). The very austere church of San Abbondio or the early Romanesque Basilica of San Corpoforo. Before leaving Como, be sure to take a cab up to Brunate for a truly spectacular view. From Como, going north along the left shore, it's just a short drive to Cernobbio, whose old town features a delightful collection of picturesque houses and narrow alleys. This is the site of the fictional Villa Balbianello, the elegant family-home-cum-pensione featured in the film "A Month by the Lake". Nearby is one of the grandest hotels in all of Europe, the Villa D'Este, whose rooms are almost like museum galleries and whose grounds boast Italy's only "floating swimming pool". Up the road is Toriggia, where you can visit Villa Passalacqua, a late 18th-century home where Vincenzo Bellini once stayed. As you travel north you'll see Como's only island, Isola Comacina. On St. John's Day, the week end after June 24th is celebrated with a mass in the ruins of the S. Eufemia Basilica, followed by a costumed procession and nighttime fireworks. On the southern shore is Bellagio, the pearl of the lake, considered by many to be the most beautiful town in Europe. Its narrow cobbled streets, breathtaking views, impeccable homes and glorious villas make it a most enchanting spot to spend your own unforgettable "Month by the Lake".Read more
