charming villages by the Italian lakes

Looking for small, beautiful villages to stroll around Lake Como/Lake Maggiore. Returning to Italy but want to stay away form the bigger cities. Would love to travel by train/boat from the lakes to reach non touristy places to stroll, sightsee and have great food.

Thanks!

Lake Como I t hink is the prettiest lake, with a lot of small villages on its shores, one that really springs to mind is Varenna, nice eating places lovely walks, and does not feel a the least touristy.
