The area around Lake Como is one of outstanding beauty. Stretching from the Swiss Alps to the Grigne and Legnone ranges, Lake Como is guarded by spectacular mountain landscapes. Pastel-coloured villages perch along the shorelines and trail up the steep sides. In this part of Italy, there are the simplest rural dwellings as well as the palatial villas of the 18th century.
A walk around one of these central lake villages, up a cobbled avenue or across a church square, will convince visitors to pause for a moment on a sunny bench, to stop for an aperitivo at a sidewalk café or pop into a gelateria for homemade ice cream.
Whether exploring the lake by foot, car or boat, it should be a leisurely experience. Choose from one of the numerous activities the area offers, or simply enjoy the comfort of the splendid private villa.
Villa Cingo is also just 90 minutes from Malpensa International Airport and is well connected to cities such as Milan and Bergamo. The lake’s vicinity to Milan has, for centuries, made it a popular refuge from city life, with many Milanese families constructing summer houses on the shores. A number of the gardens and interiors can now be visited.
Milan itself opens up an array of possibilities. Visit Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper, the Duomo or stroll down the famous shopping street of Via Montenapoleone.
Guests also have the possibility to explore some of northern Italy’s other lakes, such as Lake Maggiore in Piedmont to the west or even a day trip into Switzerland. For the cultural enthusiasts, the historical city of Turin in Piedmont is well within reach, as are Venice and Verona heading east.
