Lezzeno is a charming village between Bellagio and Como on the shores of Lake Como. The Hotel Villa Aurora is in two sections with the main traditional building set back behind the restaurant and the newer Villa absolutely on the shore of the lake. We stayed one night in the traditional main building and found it to be elegantly furnished with high quality bedding, a small but well appointed bathroom (what a loo with a view!), lots of hot water and a perfectly composed view from the 2 seat balcony. At this stage of our trip we were quite tired so decided not to do our usual extensive tripping around but parked the car (free) and apart from a couple of excursions on the local bus and short walks decided to upgrade our room into a Villa Junior Suite which had a sitting area in front of full length balcony windows. We spent the afternoons sitting with local wine and cheese that we had bought on our morning excursions. The weather had turned suddenly very cold and there was plenty of snow on the mountains, so gazing at the view from the comfort of the superior quality armchairs was heaven. The suite was exquisitely decorated and had a large bathroom with top quality fittings. Breakfast each morning was extensive with eggs, cheeses, fruit, cereals, cakes and cold meat. Each night we ate in the hotel restaurant where you could choose delicious dishes from either the full menu or the pizza menu. The staff and owners were helpful and cheerful. April is still the cool off season and would suit travelers who are wanting a calm and refreshing break although I imagine that the summer season could be the opposite. Even though we had hired a very small car, we were unprepared for the narrow road from Lecco through Bellagio and round to Lezzeno. While the road is in very good condition, the locals perhaps see nervous tourists as either an inconvenience or sport. We had intended to use this as a base for day trips into the Alps but the weariness from our long haul flight and the thought of negotiating the narrow bends and oncoming buses to get in and out each day prompted us to change our plans. But the change was perfect - at our slower pace we were able to take in the serene beauty, experience the food and wine of Northern Italy and leave the lake fully refreshed.
