LAKE COMOIf you are after palatial villas, rose-laden belvederes, lanterns casting a glow over lakeshore restaurants and majestic Alpine vistas, then this upscale resort area known as Lake Como is for you. The allure of this spectacular place endures the summer crowds with a welcoming spirit and the faded feel of old-money gently shines through. With villa gardens often framed by picturesque landscapes—fruit trees, olive groves, vineyards and of course spectacular views of the blue waters of this deep lake – Lake Como offers the perfect opportunity to relax and rejuvenate, or alternatively to explore the beautiful little town of Bellagio (the pearl of the lake), the lively and pleasant Como, popular western Menaggio or peaceful Varenna.
Experience the true meaning of the words Lake View, with an exclusive flight over this unique Lake seeing the many attractions from the sky such as the famous towns of Bellagio, Tremezzo and Menaggio. On your flight you will also get the chance to see quaint villages, churches and the impressive sight of the Italian Alps.
If you want to admire Lake Como’s stunning and perhaps hidden spots, there is nothing better than discovering them directly from the water by private boat with a knowledgeable skipper pointing out all of the palatial villas around the water. Whether you prefer a modern speed boat or an exclusive vintage one, a day plowing the waters of Lake Como is a truly unique experience.
Let us arrange a fun-filled day of watersport activities for you to enjoy the best of this lake such as sailing, canoeing and kayaking, water-skiing or kitesurfing.
Allow us to make a tee-time reservation for yourself at any of the fine golf courses around Lake Como such as the Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club or the Circolo Golf Villa D’Este.

July and August are the hottest months, where temperatures reach the 30s (85 degrees Fahrenheit) and have the greatest number of tourists. This is a pleasant time to go to the beach and enjoy the cool breezes. Also, water temperatures are ideal for many sports. July is also one of the driest months of the year.
But as is typical with Mediterranean climates, don’t forget to bring a jacket for the cool nights where temperatures can drop to 15 degrees (60 degrees Fahrenheit)!
The spring and autumn months such as May and October also have pleasant, mild temperatures but experience the most torrential rainfalls.
The Winter months (November to March) get quite cold and invite few tourists. Snow can occur although it is rare and usually hits the higher elevations. The lake is very clear and beautiful in the winter, and accommodation is much cheaper than in the high season – but many tourist attractions also tend to close during this time.
A unique feature of this lake occurs when its waters absorb the sun’s heat during the summer only to release it during the winter. The tall mountains that surround the lake also act as an insulation that aid this process. Lake Como, Italy weather is blessed with a mild climate year-round as a result.
Indeed, all along the lake you will notice many species of sub-tropical and even tropical plants like camellias, azaleas. rhododendrons, magnolias, palm trees and cypress trees.
