Lago di Como
Lake Como is one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in Europe
Lake Como – Lago di Como – lies in Lombardy and attracts a large number of visitors, especially with its imposing mountain panorama. The unique combination of almost high alpine scenery, Mediterranean vegetation on the banks and the picturesque mountain villages fascinate the visitors.
In spring, the mountains have still a white snow-hood and down on the sun-drenched shores camellias, azaleas, oleanders, cypresses and olive-trees bloom in competition. Due to its mild, Mediterranean climate, it is pleasantly warm even in autumn.
It is fascinating how Lake Como has been able to preserve its original Italian charm with its picturesque little villages spread around the shore over the years. In contrast to its well-known neighbors Lake Maggiore and Lake Garda, Lago di Como is very little affected by tourism.
A major feature of this particular charm are the historic villas with their well-kept parks. Some of them have been transformed into elegant luxury estates. If a walk along the lakeside with this breathtaking panorama is not enough for you, you can choose from a wide range of sport activities.
There are ideal conditions for water and mountain sports such as sailing, kiting, surfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, rowing, canoeing and diving or hiking, climbing, biking and horseback riding. Or you can also enjoy this unique view from the air during gliding or paragliding.
Lake Como is one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in Europe and has captured some celebrities – not only George Clooney has already bought a villa on the shores of the lake. Find your own villa of your dreams.
