So many people including celebrities keep Lake Como at the top of their holiday destination list. Surrounded by mountains offering panoramic views, this beautiful lake in Northern Italy, is a tranquil paradise: it has a pleasant climate – sunny in the summer and generally mild in the winter; great food, an easy going lifestyle and easy accessibility making people dream about settling down in this area forever!

Lake Como is closer than you think! It doesn’t take more than 1,5 h to reach the area from the UK, Belgium, France, Holland and Germany by plane. There are three international airports within easy driving distance– Malpensa, Linate and Milan-Bergamo which are served by the major international air companies.

Lake Como has an easy train & road connectivity especially on the Eastern branch that is easily linked to Milan : there’s a train leaving from Colico almost every hour (80mins). Instead if you’re not very fond of public transportation, there are two roads to choose from – a lower lakeside road, which takes you all the way from Colico to Lecco then joins up to the road that leads to Milan, and a faster, top road, with tunnels by-passing the smaller villages. This city of Como is also connected well to Milan by train.

It has a long tourist season because of it’s location and climate: the lake itself provides many opportunities for water sports, while in winter it’s within easy access of some excellent Italian and Swiss ski resorts like St Moritz, Madesimo and Bormio.

Properties can easily be rented. In fact it’s become a popular tourist destination with people coming from all over the world visiting the region each year that it is easy to rent out apartments, houses with pool and villas nearly all year round.

Lake Como is an ideal place to buy holiday villas and apartments with pool, because the surrounding area has so much to offer all year round for visitors of all ages.
