Delights of Lake Como

Accommodation for our 3 days on lake Como was at the delightful family run hotel called La Poste – from grandfather , father and daughter they couldn’t have been more helpful.
Many rooms faced the lake with balconies and a view of the many ferries transporting people up and down the lake.
We began our day driving up the side of the lake to the impressive Villa Carlotta where our visit included the huge villa and extensive gardens . The house was a 21st present to the the …. Who sadly died a few years later.
A short ferry ride took us to the touristy town of Bellagio – famous for its lovely hotels and where travelers from all over Europe come to enjoy the ambience.
The fast ferry whisked us back down the lake in less than an hour, where we caught the funicular up a very steep hillside to take in the view. Today it was a sunny, windy day – the first for ages we heard . Consequently we could see as far as Milan and well up the lake.
Our day finished with a 6 course meal at my flavourite La Baia restaurant – sitting on the edge of the lake my lovely friend Alessio excelled himself for the second year in a row with a meal of regional local dishes and wine.
