General

  • On the shores of Lake Lugano with private beach areas and boat hire
  • Quiet and comfy site, family run since 1959
  • 15 minutes' drive from Lake Como and Switzerland

Stop, halt, pause and desist from reading these words just for a minute, and have a browse through the pics of this Como province site, on the shores of Lake Lugano.

Back? You'll surely have spotted the beaut and blue waters of this glacial lake as well as its spectacular surroundings – and the site's sun terrace, with eye-watering lake views, and the small beaches (private for guests' use)? And in among all that is Grotte di Rescia's most nifty setting, between the lakes of Como and Maggiore and a mere 15 minutes' drive from Lake Como and Switzerland.

As you surely must get out onto these lush waters while staying here, you'll also be chuffed to know that Grotte di Rescia has boat hire for guests, alongside bike hire for scenic cycle rides around the lake's shoreline. An info point with tourist tips and suggestions can point you in the right and handsome direction for other days out.

Grotte di Rescia is a quiet and family-run site, open since 1959. It has a bar and a mini market to keep guests fed and watered, and a pizzeria open on Saturdays. More supplies can be sourced at the lakeside town of Porlezza, four kilometres away.

Among the amenities are a campervan service area, showers and toilets, and a parent and baby washroom. The Grotte di Rescia team can lay on a shuttle services from airports and stations on request, for an extra charge.

Local attractions

Beaut Lake Lugano is on the border of orthern Italy and southern Switzerland, just north of the World Heritage Site of Monte San Giorgio. It's a popular place for lake and mountain tourism, via cruises on its waters, hikes around its shoreline, and treks around the likes of Monte Brè and Monte San Salvatore on the lake surrounds.

Another highly famed body of water is 15 minutes' drive away at Lake Como, the third biggest lake in Italy (after Garda and Maggiore, natch). It's a swish spot that's seen celebs and the rich flock to it for centuries; have an envious gawk at the many villas on the shore to see how the other half live.

Como is a popular place for watersports including sailing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing, for spa days and wildlife watching, and for general lakeside ambling around the small shoreside towns, reachable on the excellent Lake Como ferry service. Also look out for info and details of the local farms around Como, where you can call in to pick up fresh produce such as salami, cheese, honey and olive oil.

Away from the lakes, delve into the cave system the site is named after, the Grotte di Rescia on mountain slopes on the eastern side of Lake Ceresio; hike the surrounding peaks; or potter around the old town of Porlezza on an art tour or around its medieval and Renaissance churches.
