Your comfort in the apartment:

Because the apartment is within an old stone building, the temperature inside regulates well. In the winter, the heating system will keep the apartment nice and snug. Duvets should be sufficient on the beds but extra blankets are provided just in case! In the summer, there are electric fans in each bedroom for those nights when it is very hot.

Outside:
There is a balcony which wraps around two sides of the apartment. There is a metal table and 4 metal chairs for use on the balcony as well as a bench.

Guest access

Vercana, Lombardia, Italy

Lake Como and its surrounding area has something for everybody!
Water sports: the local lakeside town of Domaso is renowned for windsurfing, as well as other water based activities. All necessary equipment (sailing, wind surfing, water skiing, kite surfing, wake boarding, SUP, speed boats, kayak etc) can be hired from a variety of nearby places (some information provided in folder in the apartment).
The lake is warm enough for swimming in the summer months and there are numerous beaches along the entire lake shore as well as more formal Lidos in some of the larger lake towns (e.g. Menaggio, Bellagio and Varenna).
Cycling: the surrounding mountains host a wide variety of marked and unmarked trails for mountain bike enthusiasts and there are flatter routes for families along the lake shore and in the Piani di Spagna (north end of the lake). Bikes can be hired locally.
Walking: there is a wide variety of walking routes in the area. Maps and further information available in the apartment.
Horticulture: Lake Como is well known for its Villas and formal gardens which are open to the public (e.g. Villa Carlotta and Villa Melzi).
Architecture and Art: Como, Bergamo and Milan are all easily reached from the apartment.
Skiing: the Italian resort of Madesimo is within 1 hour of the apartment - this is a gem of a resort and should not be overlooked. St Moritz is within 1.5 hours. Fantastic skiing, although the lift passes are expensive. Smaller resorts such as Valmalenco are also well worth a visit.
