The Lombardy Region

Lake Como is one of the prettiest lakes of northern Italy, conveniently close to Milan airports.

It offers a lot for “ active” guests, such as sailing, surfing, hiking and biking, you start your walking tour right from your door step . But if you come for a rest: take the public ferry boat, visit the well known villages of Bellagio, Varenna, Menaggio with the gardens in villa Melzi, Balbianello, Carlotta; explore Como-city with a lively shopping centre around the Duomo , the twice a week market for “that” Italian bargain. Take the car up a winding road and stop at a view point, for sure nearby a small trattoria smells of a good pasta “ pizzocheri “ or a local fish dish “ misultin”. And why do not treat yourself at the villa d’Este in Cernobbio with a “chique “ aperitive or a meal at the golf club in Menaggio, where you might mix with the rich and the beautiful ( football players and movie stars).?

Carate Urio area

The village is directly located on the lake side – once it was a fishers village- with two small harbours ( now only for pleasure boats) and some boat slips.  it is very quiet as the main road skips the village , Carate  has some restaurants ( one around the corner) , bank, post office, church, small supermarket, which we call a “ survival” shop , the extensive shopping you will go to the shopping mal at 4 km.  There is a boat and a bus stop. Walk through the village and discover the old medieval centre with a lot of steps and narrow lanes, panoramic walking tracks with wonderful views over lake and mountains. Carate has no sandy beaches but some meadow-gravel strips for a dive an sunbathing. Beware that the water becomes immediately deep.
