What no one would ever expect before experience it!

If you want to spend the winter period in a different way than usual, in a quiet place, away from the chaos and frenzy of the cities, divided between small characteristic villages and breathtaking views, Lake Como is just what you need: in fact the winter season it is notoriously not much appreciated by tourism, and this is really a good thing if your desire is to stay in a place where you can take some time for yourself and be inspired by suggestive places and views that are impossible to find elsewhere!

The whole area surrounding Lake Como is always populated, unlike many summer tourist destinations in which you won't find a soul in winter, here you will have at your disposal all the services you will need every day, in fact practically all the activities are open all year long!

As I told you, however, although the villages are always populated, you must consider that they are all small villages with few inhabitants, and just outside them, going towards the mountain, you will find unspoiled nature. The balance between the comfort and services of the urbanized area and the unspoiled nature just a few kilometers away is truly perfect!

If you like sports you will certainly appreciate the fact that you can pass from a walk or a regenerating run by the lake in the morning to mountain bike ride up to the mountains, walking or snowshoeing reaching the peaks surrounding the lake to enjoy landscapes that in no other season are so special and evocative, as well as doing ski mountaineering already after the first snowfalls in November!

If you are a fan of winter sports you will appreciate the closeness of the main ski resorts of Valtellina and Valchiavenna: Madesimo, Valmalenco, Bormio, Livigno, where you can enjoy the best winter days just over an hour from your home!

An endless possibility of excursions, following the hiking trails and mountain bike and e-bile trails, which will take you to the top of our mountains, giving you breathtaking views and making you fully appreciate the season in which nature awakens.
