Lake Como, Italy

I have just returned from a week on Lake Como with the boat, WOW!
Place is stunning, I would fully recommend it, and with your own boat you can take your time and see everything, although the views are enough.
Boat hire is around 300 euro per day, hourly rate was cheaper..



Any questions, just ask, I will answer the best I can!


I will try and upload some pics


Adam

Lake Como, Italy

Hi Adam,

Very jealous. I would love to take my RIB to Europe- Lake Annecy would be a must for me in the foothills of the French Alps.

However, Iím told itís an administration nightmares due to legislation in France.

How was Italy? What do you need?

And donít be shy with sharing photos!

Regards

Phill

It's not that bad. We've taken the boat to France loads of times & they are the least bureaucratic of the mainland Europeans. Croatia is worse, and Portugal is proving problematic. But it's nothing that can't be overcome; ultimately well worth the effort.

We had no issues, the only time we where asked for any papers was entering Switzerland from Italy, they wanted to know we owned the boat.

Great news, it is truly magnificent.

Great for swimming from as it is heated by geothermal activity. It was warmer than the pool back at our campsite.

I recommend launching from the slipway a Doussard (Southern end of the lake) as it looked like a great setup with loads of room.

If your there in early August they have a massive firework display on the waterfront at Annecy ( northern end) but there were hundreds of boats watching it from the water.

They bouy off a safety cordon, but welcome well behaved boats joining the event.

Thereís a waterside villa with a boat house got my name on it there - after I win the Euromillions of course!
