The village of Rezzonico is built on a rock, nestled up against the stone. Please be aware, there is no access to the house by car. To reach the house, you must leave your car at the top of the village and walk through a narrow cobbled street and down 30 steps to the house (approximately 200 metres). The path can be slippery when wet, so this property is not suitable for anyone with walking problems.
In the pretty hamlet of Rezzonico you will find a pizzeria and a very small grocery shop. Rezzonico has a bus stop.
Water sports facilities (boating, sailing, surfing) can be found nearby, and there are scenic trekking routes that begin at the lake. There are also many fine and beautiful golf courses in the lake area, and shoppers will love the designer fashion factory outlets available just over the border into Switzerland.
The closest lake ferry dock is in Menaggio, just 6 km south, where you will also find a golf course and tennis court. Switzerland and Europe's highest mountains lie just to the north. A drive (or boat ride) down the lake brings you to Como (40 km), famous for its production of fine silk. Elegance surrounds you in Como: beautiful architecture, elegant shops and stylish, wood-panelled cafés.
