Why Property Manager chose Griante
The photos and views speak for themselves. The lake and mountain scenery is simply sublime. The home affords spacious living inside and out plus inviting pool, sauna and hot tub to enjoy! Easy off road and secure parking and just a short walk down to all amenities from restaurants and bars and the pretty village of Griante with ample restaurants, bars and a frequent passenger and car ferry service to access the whole lake . The property is ideally located to offer a peaceful, relaxing stay yet close enough to reach all amenities in the village from the park and pizzeria to the ferry stop and lake and lido with pool to dive in and cool off in. Griante, with its meandering cobbled streets forms part of the iconic greenway walk which bobs and weaves around the lakes taking in historical villa's on this 7km route, ideal for walking enthusiasts and casually curious tourists who want to take in part of this route only. Tourist towns such as Bellagio, Varenna and easy to reach from the ferry in the village which makes Griante Residence the ideal location to relax and recharge one's batteries away from the hustle and bustle of some of the other more well trodden villages yet at the same time within easy reach for those who like to explore further afield. Hence the wonderful reviews of our residence available to read online here. Indeed by renting with us you are ensured of the most authentic Italian experience rather than just renting bricks and mortar! We aim to ensure your stay exceeds your expectations and gives you memories for many years to come.

Spacious, decorated to a high standard, clean, lovely views of the lake
Very spacious apartment with a view of the lake from the large balcony. Nice big pool, private garage and a short walk to a perfect little grocers. Owner Matteo was so helpful in pointing out useful things to do in the area and recommending places to eat.
Relaxing family stay
We booked three apartments here at Griante Residence which made for a memorable stay. 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.
We stayed here in July and enjoyed our stay immensely. The home is extremely well appointed. We enjoyed dining on the balcony, taking a dip in the pool and relaxing in the jacuzzi. Griante Reisdence was a real find and Matteo, the owner, lovely to deal with and easy to communicate with as he speaks excellent English! The residence is perched above Griante and just a short walk down to the ferry and all amenities. Would definitely choose griante residence again shoud we retrun to Como which we would very much like to do so in the not too distant future.
A truly wonderful holiday
The apartment was exceptionally good in a nice small complex. It was spacious and clean. The owner Matteo was very attentive.
The location is very nice - a shop just down the road and a little pub a few steps further on.
The views were stunning and the weather was great.
We had a lovely time exploring the area. The apartments were exceptional and had everything we needed. The local amenities were conveniently located. We especially appreciated the friendly hospitality from the manager, who was very keen to make sure our family enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.
Thanks very much for your review Alison.....it's great to get such great feedback & that you had a really nice stay at Griante Residence. Matteo is very keen that guests get the most from their stay & it;s nice to know that is apprciated.
Sehr schöner Aufenthalt
Das Appartement ist genau wie beschrieben. Wir haben es sehr sauber vorgefunden. Die Lage ist sehr ruhig, trotzdem ist man sehr schnell mitten im Geschehen. Die Lage von Griante ist super, da von hier die Fähren ablegen, und man auch in unmittelbarer Umgebung jede Menge Sehenswürdigkeiten findet. Es gibt private Parkplätze, allerdings ist die Zufahrt, zumindest für einen Sportwagen, eine Herausforderung. Wir würden gern wiederkommen.
