The photos do not do the residece justice. The apartment is spacious, clean and very modern and was perfect for my family. The home is a 10 minute walk to restaurants, bars, shops and ferry and a few minutes more walking back up the hill, but well worth it as the location is extremely serene and was perfect for recharging our batteries. Great host, very simple booking process. No complaints whatsover, thank you!

Our kids loved playing in the pool which for the most part they had to themselves ( i think there are 9 homes at the residence in total) Griante is a great base to explore the lake with a ferry to all major tourist haunts as well as a good selection of bars, restaurants and convenience stores. As you reach the lakefront the village is popular with english speaking guests. The residence here was tucked away 10 minutes from the lake so quieter, away from the tourists and very relaxing. The home was exactly as advertised, which is always a relief when booking online over the net! A special mention for the host who was always available and always charming and the booking process which was seamless. Thank you to all at Griante Residence.

The home was exactly as advertised. Matteo was a great host and the residence was absolutely perfect for us. Space, serene and with magical lake and mountain views. Griante is a great spot and less tourists here in the Hills yet it was only a 10 minute walk to reach the lake, ferry and trattorias along the lake so the residence really worked for us.
