Mezzegra: Tremezzo is located directly in the middle of the famous West coast of Lake Como, where for centuries, the noble European families have been known to have vacationed in their summer residences. Mezzegra is a lovely village, with romantic access to the lake. It is located 5 km from Menaggio and is famous for the Villa Carlotta, constructed in 1750. The Villa has been turned into a museum with a botanical garden. To travel to Lenno, is a mere 2km. Bellaggio and Varenna are only a short ferry ride away.
Low and off-season: In the low and off-season, even in the winter, this region is beautiful. There are fewer tourists, but there are still many attractions. The weather tends to remain stable and mild. This region is fantastic for relaxing, without having to travel long distances. Even in the winter season, we have sunny days, 90% of the time. Enjoy them! The Villa Carlotta is always beautiful and the sea adds a special romantic touch in the low and off-season.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a very good time at the property.
Your welcome and helpfulness, both pre arrival, by email and at the office in Menaggio was really good. I appreciated the thorough show round that George provided me with at the property and the genuine smiles and tips received at the office.
The property itself had beautiful, well maintained grounds, a spotless pool and more importantly superb views, The apartment could have done with some better cleaning. We believe having left it cleaner that we found it and bringing it up for the sake of next guests there.
I have been told that Italians book rarely through your agency, but perhaps a small selection of local tv channels could be set up, just to complete the offer. The dsl connection made do for us to catch up on news.
We had a great time nevertheless and my compliments to Harold and the whole team for running a great business there.
