The first electric lake in Europe is born in Italy; Como and its fascinating body of water could only be the first lake area to accept the challenge and join the "Electric Lake" project. Here, on these banks, Alessandro Volta, the inventor of the first electric generator and of the battery, was born and lived. A territory therefore deeply linked to electricity and its many functions.

The initiative, created to spread and promote eco-sustainable tourism, intends to transform Lake Como into the favorite destination for all fans of electric vehicles of any kind, from bicycles to boats, without forgetting the owners of cars who move with sources of alternative energy to classic petrol.




The project involves the installation of 15 "Como Electric Lake" recharging points, through which tourists, but also residents, will be able to power their cars effortlessly and with little waiting. The lake protagonist of Alessandro Manzoni's novel “Promessi Sposi” will enter by right into the Tesla Destination Charging network: a constantly updated map where you can identify the nearest charging points, so as to provide travelers, who explore the beauties of Como, with the certainty of having a safe place where recharging the batteries of your car, motorcycle and boat.




But the local shopkeepers of the lake also think about those who do not own an electric car. Thanks to the Matteri shipyard and the eco-rental of electric boats and bicycles, visitors will be able to take advantage of a fleet of zero-emission boats to discover all the most hidden beauties of Lake Como, without polluting and thus preserving the inestimable landscape heritage that distinguishes the lake panorama and its surroundings.




Como thus becomes a favorite destination for sustainable tourism that is attentive to the quality of the air and its healthiness. All this is made possible by exploiting the infinite possibilities that electricity-powered vehicles provide residents and tourists with the possibility of moving with modern vehicles with low environmental impact.

Come and discover the wonders of Lake Como and stay in one of our luxury villas for rent.
