The third largest of the lakes, Como is outstandingly beautiful with the blue-green waters of the lake contrasting with the dramatic backdrop of the Alps. The Lake and its surroundings have been inspiration for artists, poets and musicians alike. In comparison to its famous sister Garda, Como is a more tranquil and wooded lake. Just one hour from bustling Milan, the lake offers a calm and magical combination of mediterranean shrubbery and mountain peaks.
Pastel-coloured villages perch along the shorelines, where you can find anything from the simplest rural dwellings to the palatial villas of the 18th century. Bellagio in the south is most definitely the prettiest town on the lake with cobbled streets, quaint piazzas and lovely views. A walk around the town will convince you to pause and take a moment on a sunny bench, stop for an aperitivo at a sidewalk café or pop in to a gelateria for a home-made ice cream. Good food, a relaxed lifestyle, warm summers and autumns make it a perfect destination for holidays.
In Bellagio, we are pleased to offer a number of wonderful self-catering rental properties, perfect to make it the best location for your summer holiday on the lake. Here are just three in Bellagio:
