Where to stay at Lake Como / Lago Maggiore

Hi all,

I have already spend quite some time at both lakes and am planning to go there again next year for a longer period. Just wondering if any of you have some good spots - I am especially looking for proximity to towns with some co-working / hangout areas and a chilled-out, open community. I found it a bit difficult, to make real contact there, so I am just wondering if any of you has some ideas. Thanks!

Bringing this up again - anyone been in the area of Lago di Como for a longer nomad period and can share his/her experience?
