Sala Comacina ~ Salon of Lake Como
The name ‘Sala Comacina’ clearly sums up the status and position of this attractive village on the premier western bank of the lake: a veritable drawing room facing Isola Comacina, Lake Como’s only island.
And so in this fortunate arrangement, Isola Comacina shelters Sala from the northerly winds that in winter blow off the Alps, thereby ensuring that Sala Comacina enjoys a unique year-round micro-climate where even on a sunny winter's day a secluded spot by the lake will offer sublime warmth and tranquillity.
During the summer months locals and visitors alike enjoy the newly constructed beach and pool at the end of Via Rocco. Here children can swim in an enclosure built into the otherwise deep waters of the lake.
In Sala guests are invited to enjoy village life with every convenience close at hand: bakery with freshly baked bread daily, newspapers, C10 bus tickets, and general groceries, artisan butcher, twice-weekly vegetable van, café/bar/wine merchant and local Enoteca with free Wi-Fi, fine dining choices, water-taxi service, ferry connections, local C10 bus service, bank with Bancomat (ATM), post office, and village church; all within 200 metres of Casa Matra Ponto.
Chat with the neighbours; relax with a coffee; enjoy an early aperitivo; swim or lie at the beach; cross to the island, or to Bellagio; visit a villa to bask in a Baroque garden; rush to Como for designer shopping; hike into Switzerland; enjoy a game of golf; dine al fresco; or simply plan another lazy day enjoying what Sala and Casa Matra Ponto have to offer.
