INFORMATION, NEWS AND CURIOSITIES
ON LAKE COMO
If you are looking for an active holiday in contact with nature, there is a paradise waiting for you just a few steps away from Residence Il Giardino di Lory.
Domaso, 'Il Paradiso del Vento' (The Wind Paradise) is located just below Vercana, with numerous beaches, sports equipment rentals and wind... at will! Enjoy a sunny day in the waters of Lake Como and immerse yourself in the territory.
Among water sports, I prefer to paddle quietly aboard a SUP. SUP stands for Stand Up Paddle, and comes from Hawaii like the surfing. Unlike it, however, you don't have to stand up just to ride the wave, but you move around while remaining upright on the board and paddling. I find it marvellous for calmly admiring the coastal villages in the waves, but the possibilities are endless: Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, Wing Foil, Kayaking, Canoeing, Water Skiing, Sailing.
The practice of these sports is possible thanks to the winds that drive the sportsmen, and there are mainly two of them: the gentle Breva, fresh and coming from the south, and the colder and more impetuous North Wind, suitable for the more experts who enjoy adrenalin-fuelled rhythms among the waves.
Not the type for active sports? Then I recommend SUP Yoga! A whole yoga lesson held while floating on a SUP not far from the shore. Yoga is a great ally in preventing osteoporosis, increases muscle elasticity and tone, and combined with boarding enhances the difficulty of balance but also the direct contact with nature. Some of the campings in Domaso organise courses with experienced and trained teachers, we are waiting for you in Reception for all the information!
