In the living area there is a large “L” shaped sofa and also a TV, DVD, portable radio/CD. French doors open out onto a large balcony with beautiful views over Lake Como. There is a small table and chairs on the balcony so that you can make the most of the panoramic scenery, while having breakfast, lunch or dinner. All linen & bath towels are provided. (Please bring beach towels for use in the pool/lake.) There is a large, shared pool (unheated) and a good sized sun bathing area (with showers). The pool is available to use from the beginning of June to the end of September each year. Sun loungers and beach chairs are stored in the apartment and can be taken to the poolside or to the pebbled beach which is about 200 yards from the apartment. There are a few beach toys that can be used (bats and balls etc.) Pianello del Lario is situated on the western shores of Lake Como. It is approximately one and a half hours from Milan and surrounded by the Italian and Swiss Alps. Lake Como is the deepest and third largest of the Italian Lakes. The summers are hot and there is plenty of snow on the mountains in winter. Because of its position, there is a lot to do all year round. In winter you can ski in nearby resorts. In summer, you can windsurf, sail and swim in the lake. All year round you can use Pianello as a base from which to explore the surrounding areas of Lombardia, Piedmont and Switzerland. Whilst it is possible to get around using public transport, I would strongly recommend that visitors have the use of a car. More

About the neighborhood
The village is a small, typically Italian place where British tourists are rare. This part of the lake is used primarily by Italians with holiday homes and Germans and Dutch using the small, local camp-sites, however it is just 10 minutes drive from Menaggio, which is a prime tourist area especially with the British and Americans. A regatta is held every Easter and the beach is full of boats. A good place to watch the races is from the top of the white cafe. North along the lakeside from the boat station is a pleasant promenade to Musso and to the south there is a small pebble beach. The village is surprisingly well serviced with good local amenities needed for an enjoyable holiday:- - 2 x Lakeside Restaurants - Pizzeria (Eat In/Take Away) - Bar - General Grocers - Bread/Cake Shop -...
How to get there
Pianello del Lario is a small village situated about 7 Miles north of Menaggio on the western shores of Lake Como. This part of Italy is serviced by three airports:- - Orio al Serio (Bergamo) 1 ¾ Hours - Linate (Milan) 1 ¾ Hours - Malpensa (Milan) 2 Hours We have found that low cost airlines such as Ryanair, EasyJet and FlyBe fly regularly to Bergamo and Milan. There are further airline options available for flights into Linate and Malpensa, but these may not be “low cost “ airlines. You can pick up a hire a car at each of the airports. Also, there are public transport connections (trains, buses, taxis etc.) We think hiring a car is the best option to get the most out of your holiday, but taxis will go to Como and public transport around the lake, once there, is excellent.
