Find a Distinct Corner of Italy with Lake Como Holiday Apartments
A Lake Como holiday apartment gives visitors the chance to escape to one of Italy's best kept secrets. A favourite of the rich and famous who appreciate the calm and beautiful vistas, the area is also accessible for any traveller. Only a stone's throw away from some of Italy's most iconic northern cities, such as Milan, Turin and Venice, sunbathe on the Lake Como shore with the Swiss mountains in the distance, uncover Roman ruins and taste authentic Italian cuisine.
Why choose Lake Como holiday homes?
Holiday apartments at Lake Como (as well as larger villas for big groups of friends or families) satisfy the needs of any traveller. Apart from the privacy offered by your own accommodation among the valleys and mountains surrounding the lake, you'll also be able to enjoy your own independence. There are many superb places to eat in the area, as well as a huge range of markets where you can pick up fresh local produce to cook yourself. There's nothing quite like discovering authentic regional ingredients and making delicious meals to share on the terrace or by your own pool with your travelling companions. The distinctive architecture, including many traditional Italian houses, also makes renting holiday homes in Lake Como enticing.
See the best of rural Italy at the border of Switzerland
Como is most famous for its magnificent lake, which stretches across the border and is surrounded by miles of gorgeous countryside. Spend your days sunbathing and swimming or hire a boat to see more of this stunning area from the water. For those that feel like getting out and exploring, the surroundings are perfect for biking and the village pizzerias on the way offer a much needed break with authentic Italian food. If you're renting a car, take a trip to the quaint village of Musso, famous for its ancient quarries of white marble. Alternatively, just go out and explore the Prealps, the source of the Italian Lakes region's fame.
Lake Como holiday apartments for every type of visitor
Equally calm and full of activities, Lake Como really does manage to attract every age group and travel preference. The inspiring natural beauty is perfect for couples looking to escape to the countryside's serene beauty, perhaps with a holiday apartment overlooking the lake. Families will find the larger villas ideal, and there's plenty to keep the kids entertained too. Go on visits to local cities, dive into thrilling water sports or see museums such as the stunning Villa Carlotta, with its impressive art collection and picturesque botanical gardens. If you'd like to take your furry friend on the trip too, plenty of Lake Como holiday apartments allow pets. The miles of countryside are absolutely ideal for dog walks and having your own holiday home allows your pet to also enjoy the trip.
The gastronomic delights of a trip to Como
The cuisine in Como is focused around seafood, meat such as pork and beef and influences from nearby Milan such as saffron-based Risotto alla Milanese. Pizza is popular as ever, often served in gigantic quantities using simple but mouth-watering ingredients. Pike, trout and perch are some of the common fish caught in the lake and are served at restaurants or available at the markets. If you fancy doing your own cooking in Como, the market is held every Tuesday and Thursday morning, and all day on Saturday. You can also find familiar foods at the supermarkets or just dine out every night if you really want to be pampered.
From modern to thoroughly traditional Lake Como holiday accommodation
The town has a brilliant mix of properties to choose from when renting a holiday home, but they're all blessed with proximity to the gorgeous lake. Modern villas and apartments often come with pools, which is ideal if you'd like to enjoy the water and sunshine but appreciate privacy. With more traditional homes, you'll step into a kind of timelessness where the surroundings make it easy to unwind for days or weeks on end. Renting a holiday apartment right by the lake itself is an unrivalled experience, and you'll soon appreciate why celebrities choose the area for their own getaways. With so much available space, houses with their own private gardens can be found, as well as apartments with balconies to make the most of the splendid views.
Great local excursions from Como
Despite its seclusion, Como has plenty of amazing nearby cities to explore. Just over half an hour away by train, Milan is the world's fashion centre where you can indulge in some serious designer shopping. About two hours away by car (or three by train) is Genoa, deeply historical and often considered one of Italy's most beautiful cities with plenty of photo opportunities. Visit the famous St. Mark's Basilica and make sure to buy a souvenir Venetian mask in Venice, the unique city on water, roughly three hours away and well worth a day trip with an early morning start.
Getting to your Lake Como holiday apartment
From the U.K. or Ireland, the easiest way to reach Como is to fly to Milan and then rent a car or take the train. Flights from London, Dublin or Manchester take between two and two and a half hours. The scenic 90km drive from Milan to your holiday home in Lake Como should take you no more than two hours.
The best time to book Como holiday apartments
The warm season in and around Como stretches all the way from March to November. May to September, when temperatures are almost always above 25°C, is the ideal time to visit if you'd like to enjoy the water and your own private pool in Como, or go for summer strolls around the countryside. The winter—when local temperatures are mild due to the release of stored summer heat in the lake—is also an excellent time to visit if you'd like to avoid the larger crowds.
