The Italian Region of Lombardy
 
Welcome to Lombardy, the home of the world famous Italian Lakes and the land of art, history, good food and some of the best wine!
 
The region stretches from the border of Switzerland and the Stelvio National Park, down through the stunning lakes of Lago di Como, Lago Iseo, Lago Maggiore and Lago di Garda.  Well known as the wealthiest of Italian regions and the centre of Italian fashion, commerce and industry.
 
The capital of the region is Milan where the Gothic Duomo, the Castello Sforzesco and the Teatro alla Scala can be found.  The city's galleries are home to the 'not to be missed' masterpieces, including paintings by Raffaello, Piero della Francesca and Mantegna.  Probably the most famous of all is the Last Supper by Leonardo Di Vinci, which can be found at the church of Santa Maris delle Grazie.
 
One sixth of Italy's population live in Lombardy.

View Of Novate Mezzola Village and Lago di Mezzola

The Village Of Novate Mezzola
 
The village is located about 90km north of Milan and 35km west of Sondrio, close to the Swiss border.  Truly traditional and offering peace and tranquility with all the trappings of local tourism on the doorstep.
 
In walking distance of the apartment there is a pharmacy, supermarket (which is very reasonable - 5Ltr of wine for just 5 euro!), bank, bakery, newsagent, florist, bars, trattorias (restaurants), gelateria (ice cream parlour), train station and Lake Mezzola. 
 
Places of interest in the village include Picapreda Museum, Val Codera History and Nature Museum and The Holy Trinity baroque church.
 
Eating out locally is extremely reasonable, this is because the village and immeadiate area does not rely solely on tourism, and as a result local amenities are open all year round.

The Valchiavenna Valley
 
The valley, with its unspoilt scenery, is surrounded by high peaks.  It is an ideal location to relax, go skiing and enjoy water or snow sports.  For those that love the quiet then the Lake Mezzola is the ideal spot to unwind.  In ancient times the lake was actually part of Lake Como.  
 
In this area of Lombardy you will find a wide range of things to do from just simply taking it easy to filling your days with an abundance of energetic activities.
