PROGRAMMA IL TUO VOLO IN IDROVOLANTE SUL LAGO
Programma il tuo volo in idrovolante sul lago di Como per esplorare dall'alto le meraviglie del paesaggio.L'IDROVOLANTE è un magnifico strumento di scoperta geografica e culturale. L'Aero Club Como organizza voli tematici per i piloti, ma anche per i turisti che desiderano conoscere dall'alto le bellezze dal Lago di Como: chiese romaniche ,filande,industrie ottocentesche,architettura razionalista.
NOLEGGIO BARCHE
Se sapete remare o preferite navigare con barca a motore le potete facilmente noleggiare rivolgendovi nell’ufficio dell’albergo. Potrete così ammirare gli angoli più deliziosi e romantici del lago, quali quelli sul retro di Villa Balbianello fino all’Isola Comacina, o sulla sponda tremezzina le ville più belle, o sulla sponda di fronte all’albergo, più selvaggia, fino al piccolo e nascosto Santuario della Madonna del Moletto, passando davanti a Bellagio , superando la punta spartivento e così costeggiando oltre i faraglioni di villa Serbelloni.

RED EARTH TENNIS COURT
An easy underpass links the lake garden to the mountain garden where you can find a red earth tennis court.

WHAT TO DO AND SEE

The hotel is surrounded by a park with big trees that separate it Savefrom the main road.The park is 12.000 square meters, that is 170 sm per guest.This garden stretches from the road to the lake, where you can find a small beach .An easy underpass links the lake garden to the mountain garden where you can find a red earth tennis court.
Morning till sunset our guests can go for a long swim and then relax on the deck chairs in the sun to tan or under the shade of the trees to get some fresh air.The shape of the garden is such that you can find your own special corner.The gentle air that comes down from the mountain("montivo") and the "breva" that comes from the lake make it possible to avoid sultriness.
If you like sport you can swim, play tennis, go jogging or walk along the "green way" just in front of the hotel.
If you play golf we suggest you try the Golf Club Menaggio e Cadenabbia,15 min by car from here .It is an 18 hole golf club on a hilltop above Menaggio.
If you like rowing or want to rent a motor boat please ask at reception.You will be able to see some of the most beautiful places around the lake, such as Villa Balbianello and the Comacina island or the Madonna del Moletto, near Bellagio and Villa Serbelloni.
If you prefer there are many pleasant walks, not difficult, for example to the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Soccorso, Villa Balbianello, the little church of San Martino in Griante, Villa Carlotta, Villa Melzi in Bellagio , Villa Cipressi and Villa Monastero in Varenna , or the Green Way to Colonno or to Menaggio which will allow you to visit the old parts of various villages. The lake promenade in Lenno is very nice and leads you to the Villa Balbianello.If you would like to visit the crypt of the parish church in Lenno please ask the reception.
By car we suggest :
-the small sanctuary of Breglia(road to Menaggio-Lugano and then follow to Plesio-Breglia), leave the car there and walk for 10 minutes to the white church where you have a wide view over to the lake as far as Lecco.
-if you are well equipped for mountain walks, we suggest the Grona, above Menaggio: leave the car at Breglia(there is also a bus stop) follow the marked steep track, you will reach the Rifugio Menaggio from which you could reach the peak.Be careful because it is quite difficult.This walk is demanding: it takes a whole day and it is 3 hours climbing.
-"Balcone d'Italia" offers a splendid view over lake Lugano and the Alps:from Argegno follow the road to Lanzo Intelvi and then Sighignola.
-"Rogolone" (big oak tree) and the local museum of Grandola at Villa Camozzi. Follow the route Menaggio Lugano, go right to Grandola, Naggio and you will find Villa Camozzi where you can visit the museum.Below the Villa the pathway to Rogolone starts and after a short walk you will arrive at the big oak tree.Ideal setting for a picnic.

By boat,from the front of the hotel, buy a day ticket and stop at all the villages in the central area of the lake, from Lenno to Tremezzo, Villa Carlotta, Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna; you can choose to stop where you want but look at the timetable !

In the late morning there is a lake cruise to Piona, at the northern end of the lake where you can visit the ancient monastery: the friars produce good liqueurs.You can lunch on board or have a picnic while you are at the monastery.Ask the reception for information.
