Sailing base experience on Como's Lake
After laying the sailingboat down into the water, we'll learn how to hoist the two sails (and their names), and we'll try to catch the wind to address to some of the most beautiful lake coast and well known villages: the famous Bellagio, Varenna, Menaggio. We'll learn how to trim the sails, to helm the boat in function of the wind direction; and how to keep the fastest boat track in order to maximize wind pressure. We'll try to make a mooring at the buoy and at the quay. If the wind strength changes, we'll change the sails in order to let you understand how sailing safely. We'll learn how to recognize sky signals (bad weather coming, wind reinforcement, wind direction change). There will be also time to admire the gorgeous landscape, relax and dip into the water for a refreshing bath. It will be not a sailing teaching lesson (it is not the experience purpose): feeling the wind and learning what means the use of its force to move a boat in silence, without the use of any engine..... priceless. Other things to note Guests are required to know how to swim or float, and to have confidentiality with water. There is no danger of suffering from seasickness.

E-bike Three Stunning Lakes Like a Local
This fantastic circular route delivers it all: hidden villages, rustic charm, spectacular lake views, quiet mountain roads to cycle, and a stop on Lake Lugano. Start from the heart of a small Renaissance hamlet with traditional cobbled streets and historic stone houses. Follow the quiet cycle path that was originally the old railway line connecting Lake Como to Lake Lugano. Pass the charming Lake Piano nature reserve; hidden Romanesque churches and tiny villages before arriving directly on the beach of Lake Lugano with expansive views across the water. Explore the old centre of Porlezza-the perfect spot for an ice-cream or aperitivo before starting the climb into the mountains. Ride a section of original medieval road and weave through quaint village squares untouched by tourism. Finish with a panoramic downhill ride with views across Lake Como. This experience showcases the beautifully diverse scenery of the area and shares fun anecdotes of real people's lives. DIFFICULTY: Expect an active, mini adventure of 28km with uphills, downhills, narrow village roads and some gravel sections. Athleticism, confidence and understanding of a geared bicycle are required. An e-bike is a normal bicycle including battery assistance for uphills. OPTIONAL: Pick up from Menaggio ferry station paid on-site and requested in advance. The ferry connects to Bellagio, Varenna and Como among others.
Exclusive Sunset WineTasting @Brunate

I will tell you about the story of Brunate and give you some interesting suggestions to discover this small but precious paradise! At the top of the mountain we will enjoy an exclusive regional wine tasting with Andrea, an accredited Sommelier of the Italian Sommelier Association. With his passion and knowledge of Italian and local wine and of our territory, he will make us discover the incredible wine, food and cultural richness of the Lake of Como area. We will try 3 different wines produced in Lombardy (a white sparkling wine, a white and a red wine), which perfectly represent the rich terroir of the region. This exclusive wine tasting will be matched with a fine selection of Salumi&Formaggi produced by a very small farm located not far from Brunate. The view from the top of the mountain at sunset is something you will remember for a long time!
