We can’t claim to be expert sailors, but the lake is endlessly fascinating. We love to watch the flotillas of tiny sailing dinghies coming out of the sailing school at Bellano, directly opposite our village.
There are several options for boat hire, at Menaggio (on the promenade), at Tremezzo, and at Domaso, which is a major centre for watersports. Typical prices are €70 an hour. Which might seem steep, but shared between a group is more affordable, and two hours on the water will provide unique perspectives on the surrounding mountains, villages and villas, and be an unforgettable experience.
