Discover the beauty of Lake Como from your villa in Menaggio
Menaggio is a small town on the western shore of the beautiful Lake Como in Lombardy near the Swiss border, easily accessible by road from Como and Lugano. It's not as busy as some of the other villages on the lake, though it is just as beautiful - a villa in Menaggio is also an affordable way to holiday on the lake. There are ferries running from Menaggio to the charming towns of Bellagio and Varenna, both of which make for an enjoyable day trip. Further down the west coast are more lovely places to visit, such as Villa Carlotta in Tremezzina and Villa del Balbianello in Lenno.
Walk through beautiful landscapes with Menaggio accommodation
One of the most popular activities on Lake Como - apart from relaxing - is walking. Menaggio accommodation is a great base from which to set out into the hills around the lake, and in the tourist information centre you can find route maps for gentle walks, longer hill hikes and everything in between. It is also possible to take boats out onto the lake. Many of the apartments and villas here have their own pools and many also accept dogs. The town is compact, so it's never far from your villa in Menaggio to shops, restaurants and cafés, as well as tennis facilities, the golf club and the lake itself. The Lido on the shore of the lake is a great place to enjoy the sun.
