Out and about

The village of Cremia lies on the western shore of Lake Como in the region called Alto Lario and consists of many villages on the slopes of Monte Bregagno. Among these fractions is San Vito which lies on the lakeside and where there is a church dedicated to St. Vitus and St. Modesto. Near to this church were found fragments of pots, tools and other objects dating back to the Roman period. Documents prove that in 1172 Cremia was fortified and had a castle on the shore of the lake, but unfortunately there is no trace remaining of these buildings. You can however stroll along the pedestrianised lakeside promenade and enjoy the stunning lake vistas or along the beach.

This area of the lake is very popular for its wide open lake views and is especially famous for its water sports, particularly wind surfing and kite surfing. The town of Cremia itself has several restaurants, shops a supermarket and hairdressers amongst others. The nearest pharmacies can be found in neighbouring Dongo to the north or San Siro to the south, both of which are larger towns and are less than a five minute drive away.

The neighbouring town to the north is Pianello del Lario which is actually a collection of hamlets on the hill that also lead to the lake. A path along the lake leads from Calozzo, the lakeside hamlet of Pianello del Lario, all the way to Musso. The lovely location lets you enjoy the views and activities of Lake Como to the full. Pianello del Lario is named for the river that flows from the mountains into the lake. The alpine setting is backed by the Swiss Alps. The town has a nice pebble beach along with lakeside restaurants and bank. Here you can enjoy the water activities in the summer such as swimming, windsurfing, and sailing as it has a surfing school and boat hire. The marina plays host to an annual Easter regatta, a colorful way to usher in spring!

The central lake town of Menaggio and the Tremezzina area are only a 15 minute drive to the south where days out to the famous destinations of Bellagio, Tremezzo and Varenna are all just a short ferry ride away, as are the gardens of Villa Carlotta and Villa Balbianello of James Bond and Star Wars fame. You are also just a short drive from Lugano in Switzerland too or an hour away from the skiing resort of Madesimo.
