The town of San Siro lies on the western shores of the Lake and is 35 km far from Como. Molvedo, where Casa Panorama is located, is one of its small hamlets.
Here you can still feel the atmosphere of the ancient past .The surroundings are very quiet and picturesque. The village is very quiet, but it has supermarket, bank, pharmacy and “trattorie “where you can taste lake fish ( lavarello, alborelle, misoltini).
In the bay in summer there are lots of surfers, sailing boats and swimmers. The water is clear and a lovely breeze comes up in the afternoon, a surfers' paradise! Along the shores you can find secluded beaches and picturesque spots.
For mountain lovers there are walks through small and sunny villages from the lake level to the top of the mountains..You can go for long walks along the “Antica Regina” road which was built by Romans. Once it connected lake villages with the Alps, now it goes through woods and hamlets all up to the lake. You can reach the high peaks above San Siro where you can enjoy spectacular views.
Its location is ideal for day trips by ferry to the other shore of the lake( Bellagio) and by car to nearby small lakeside towns and villages. For extensive shopping and night life Menaggio, a lively town with the oldest golf course and tennis courts, is nearby.
Lake Como is 50 km long , it is the deepest lake in Europe and one of the most beautiful in Italy.
In the 19th century European writers, artists and statesmen discovered the region which has been a retreat also for wealthy Milanese families who built beautiful villas. Some of them are open to the public and their gardens are really worth to be visited. Near Varenna is villa Monastero, Villa Melzi in Bellagio, in Lenno Villa Balbaniello. Lovers of flora and fauna must visit the gardens of Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo!
Its openness to “VIP” has recently been confirmed by the presence almost all year around, of George Clooney, Donatella Versace, Elton John, Madonna just to say some names…who have decided to make this area their own private paradise.
Every season is worth a visit, because the climate is mild.
Springtime starts in April, May and June are warm. In July the temperature reaches 25-30 degrees, but there is always a lovely breeze, la Breva, a must for surfers and sailing boats. September and October are much loved too and winters are usually cold but bright with lot of sunshine .
In summer in particular you can practise golf, swimming, sailing and all watersports. In winter the skiing slopes at St Moritz, San Bernardino, Madesimo, Gotthard are at easy reach ( 90 minutes by car).
During all the year instead, thanks to the Mediterranean climate, high mountains around the lake invite hiking and walking.
And for the relax-supporters, excursions to Como ( 35 km), Milano (80 km), Lugano ( 35 km) are recommended. Shoppers will love the designer fashion factory outlets near Como and the Swiss border.

Ciao a tutti!
I am Moreno, I love Lake Como and San Siro where I was born and where I have been living all my life. I also love travelling abroad and I spent a lot of time during my holidays in Spain and in Middle East. Nevertheless, I am happy to come home on the Lake because for me it is the best place in the world. I practice a lot of sports, in particular sailing and skiing, and I spend time with my friends on weekends to explore the surroundings of the lake. I enjoy its refreshing waters, the quietness of its picturesque villages, the colours of its gardens , the beauty of its Villas.
