The villages on Lake Como each have their own character but all enjoy wonderful views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Inghams resorts are all served by lake ferries for leisurely sightseeing and why not join an Inghams wanderwalk so you can explore the surrounding area where you are staying.
THE VILLAS AND GARDENS OF LAKE COMO
The idyllic lakeside villas of Como have always attracted the rich and famous. Today they are reminders of more elegant times. Villa Balbianello, with its magnificent gardens and views should not be missed. 17th century Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo contains sculpture by Canova and 4 acres of gardens with azaleas, rhododendrons
and ancient cedars and sequoias. In Bellagio, Villas Melzi and Serbelloni can also be visited; entrance is around €8.50 (reductions for over 65’s). Even today, these villas retain their glamour.
NEW for summer 2014 we have introduced a unique lakes and mountains experience, where you can combine your stay on Lake Como with our NEW mountain resort of Gressoney, set in the heart of the Italian Monte Rosa Mountains.
Two centres| You can also combine your stay on Lake Como with
any resort on Lake Maggiore so you can compare the two lakes.
Stretching across the west lake promenade, Tremezzo is in the area of Colonno/ Griante/ Cadenabbia and the island of Comacina, and has a particularly mild climate.More information
To the north of the lake above Tremezzo and Cadenabbia and looking across to Bellagio. One of the main towns on the lake Menaggio has a large pretty piazza with many gelaterias, shops and cafés as well as a very picturesque lakeside promenade.More information
In a sheltered lakeside position on the western shores of Lake Como, Cadenabbia is a super spot for a lakes and mountain holiday - with Mount Crocione behind you, you can look across the lake for wonderful views of the headland village of Bellagio and the Dolomite mountain range beyond.More information
