Italy / Lombardy

PERLEDO

A few hundred meters above the shores of Lake Como, with breathtaking views of the town of Bellagio, of the 19th century villas where artists like to spend their time and of the snowy peaks surrounding the lake, Perledo is surely a town of charm. The view from the terrace of your apartment is likely to be one of the best zoom backgrounds you can choose… just it is real!

THE TOWN

BEAUTIFUL PEACE

Lake Como | Medieval Castles | Alpine Peaks

Perledo is a tiny town located on the eastern shore of Lake Como (yes, great for sunsets!), a few hundred meters above Varenna. Everything is at walking distance within the historical center – well, it has to be, as the streets are so tiny that cars are not allowed. It is easy to reach (about 1 hour drive from Milan and Bergamo), yet secluded in a wonderful setting of woods and olive tree fields overlooking the blue waters of the lake.

SURROUNDINGS

Lake Como

The waters of the lake allow for the area to enjoy a milder climate than its location at the footsteps of the Alps would suggest. Olive trees and palms flourish on the sunny slopes gently declining towards the lakeshores, while at the beaches people from all over the world enjoy swimming in the crystal-clear water with a view on medieval castles and belle-epoque villas.

Nature

The town is located on the Sentiero del Viandante, a trekking trail along the shores of the lake, with “postcard views” from under the trees of the chestnut woods growing on the surrounding mountains. And after a hiking in the forests, what’s better than a swim in the lake – the beaches of Varenna are only 20 minutes walking downhill from Perledo?

History

The area surrounding Perledo has been continuously inhabited since the Middle Ages. During your breaks, take a stroll through the woods and get to Vezio Castle, said to have been the summer residence of Theodelinda, queen of the Lombards in the 6th century CE, and look for hawks and owls flying in the sky. Or walk down to Villa Monastero, an old convent on the lakeshore converted in the 19th century into a luxurious villa with one of the most beautiful botanical gardens of Italy. 

Mobility

Perledo is easy to reach: it is located approximately 1h00-1h30 both from Milan train station and from Bergamo airport on a panoramic road stretching along the lake shores. Also, it can be reached quickly from Switzerland, crossing the border in Lugano and taking a ferry from Menaggio to Varenna.

The town center is small and all services can be reached in less than five minutes walking. Cars can be parked in the parking lots just outside the center.
