During our stay on Lake Como, we rented a townhouse in Sala Comacina. The tiny village squeezes itself in the space between the shore and the main road, facing off to the only island that graces the lake. Not a destination in itself, Sala Comacina is significantly quieter than nearby “attraction” towns, while still being very picturesque and atmospheric.
Here is the view to the main town square that faces the lake.
We sat at that café – it is called La Tirlindana – and enjoyed great lake views in addition to good food.
And here is “our” street in the village. The townhouse we rented is to the left of the spot the picture was taken from, out of frame.
One of the lake views from Sala Comacina. This is towards Ossuccio.
And here is a view from a high point above the village.
The family was having a grand time, if anyone doubted.
More pictures of Sala Comacina, along with a few from nearby Argegno, have been posted to a Flickr set.
