HIGHLIGHTS & HOME TRUTHS

>There is no built-in air conditioning, but you can use a portable air conditioner and fans to cool the rooms.

Lenno is a town situated on the western shore of Lake Como. This small and peaceful lakeside village is a perfect destination for a relaxing vacation and is in close proximity to some of the most sought-after tourist spots on Lake Como, including Villa Balbianello and Villa Carlotta. Ferries depart from the Lenno pier to other renowned locations on the lake – for instance, you can reach Bellagio in approximately 15 minutes. From Lenno, you can also embark on a hike along the Greenway, and water sports enthusiasts can enjoy a variety of activities on the lake.
For the convenience of guests, we recommend arriving by car. The city of Como is approximately a 30/40-minute drive away. There are buses connecting Lenno to Como and other cities along the lake. Look for the C10 line operated by ASF Autolinee - the bus stop is about a two-minute walk from the apartment. Tickets can be purchased on the bus (cash only) or at designated locations in the area or in Como (refer to the ASF Autolinee website). Please note that buses are not very frequent, and the service ends around 10.00 p.m.. Taxis are available but might not be readily accessible in the region. From the Lenno pier - approximately a 15-minute walk from the apartment - ferries depart regularly to nearby cities. The schedule and tickets are available on the "Navigazione Laghi" website. Tickets can also be purchased at the pier.
From Como, it is easy to travel to Milan and Switzerland (Lugano, Bellinzona, Locarno) by train. There are also public ferries travelling to other lakeside towns from the pier in the Como centre.
The nearest airports are Milano Malpensa, Milano Linate, and Orio Al Serio in Bergamo. It is possible to arrange a direct shuttle to and from the airport at an additional cost.
For more questions regarding transportation, please do not hesitate to contact us, we will be happy to help and ensure that you reach your preferred destination!
>We advise you to take a day to visit the marvellous little towns around the lake. Como city is the urban centre of the area, but the little towns are gems with glorious lakeside villas.
>To travel and walk around Lake Como, especially in the little towns and in the mountains, comfortable shoes are a must.
>There are many public drinking water fountains in the area, and the water is safe to drink unless stated otherwise. Tap water is also drinkable. You can carry your own refillable bottle!
>If you are looking for an easy hike in the area and want to enjoy mountain views anyway, Lake Como Greenway is an easy-to-follow trail that doesn't require too much walking uphill. The Greenway goes through the little towns from Colonno to Griante.
>Look for traditional restaurants where you can try local foods such as Lake Como fish dishes.
>In Italy, many shops (especially the little ones) and services are closed in the middle of the day, so be careful to plan your shopping accordingly.
>Lake Como is one of the deepest lakes in Europe and the deepest in Italy. Swimming and diving are prohibited in many areas and can be dangerous. For those who wish to dwell in the water, however, there are some options.
Lido di Bellagio and pebbly San Giovanni beach will be waiting for those who wish to travel and explore the beautiful town of Bellagio which lies in the middle of the two Larian branches. Locals and visitors also enjoy travelling to Nesso where the bravest swimmers can jump into the lake from the ancient Roman bridge near the waterfall.
>Lake Como is located in a mountainous region. The surrounding pre-Alps might not seem very high, but the climate is nevertheless affected by the nearby mountains, and temperatures can change quickly. Be particularly attentive to the weather when hiking, and bring some warm and waterproof clothes with you!
