The Lake Como climate - Unique, special, and glorious!
The weather in the Lake Como area is obviously going to be a very important element of your Lake Como holiday. Over the years much has been written about the Lake Como area and it's micro-climate, a phenomena that results in a Mediterranean style climate with lots of sun and warm temperatures particularly in the villages of Argegno, Lenno, Mezzegra, Tremezzo, Bellagio, Cadenabbia, Griante, Menaggio, and Varenna. Indeed in very few places on earth will you find palm trees growing next to alpine firs!
Just imagine yourself relaxing in the warmth of the summer or winter sun, gazing across the lake from your Lake Como apartment or Lake Como vacation villa from Bella Como.
