Located in this peaceful and beautiful enclave of Tremezzo, just 5 minutes walk from the lake front and in a lush and beautiful hillside setting, this elegant holiday home (ID 733) is ideal for groups and families who wish to explore all the wonders of Lake Como.

The pretty period villa dates back to 1650 and was built by the ‘De Carli’ merchant family who had ties with the Dutch East India Company and who built their wealth from commerce and ships. This fascinating history provides modern day guests with an extremely interesting and spacious apartment for their self-catering stay, with high ceilings, period features and well-proportioned rooms throughout.

The garden also provides the ideal spot for alfresco dining, with the classical fountain and the pleasing peachy tone villa façade with climbing wisteria providing an idyllic backdrop to evening aperitifs and meals.

Tremezzo:

The area of Tremezzo is one of the most popular tourist attractions on Lake Como and is located on the western shore. For some time now Tremezzo, along with the villages of Lenno and Mezzegra, have become a 'commune' known as 'Tremezzina'. Nestled in a sheltered bay, midway between Mezzegra and Cadenabbia, gives the village an ideal location.

Tremezzo has been inhabited since Roman times and many ancient ruins are still visible today. At one time wars between Como and Milan involved the town and it was completely destroyed, but it did recover and then became part of the Visconti area. From around the 1600's the town again began to flourish which saw business grow with other European countries.

There are many places of interest in this area, but the spectacular 'Villa Carlotta' is without doubt the most famous tourist attraction in Tremezzo, it is open to the public and a visit here is essential. Built in 1690 for the Milanese Marchese Giorgio Clerici, it has fountains, sculptures and a magnificent Italian garden. Another outstanding attraction is the statue of the Madonna Nera (the Black Virgin). The Swiss Catholic Aschler family initially brought the statue to Italy and it is now on show at the Church of Santa Maria.

By booking this holiday home you will get free acces to the lido di Menaggio. The Lido di Menaggio has swimming pools, a restaurant, a bar/discotheque, a kids club, boat rentals, a sandy beach, kite surfing and various sportive activities to do.

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:

The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.

It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.

All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Warming, in spring and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).

Guestbook comments from the manager

Firstly, many apologies for not getting in touch sooner, but you know what it is like once everything is settling back in to routine.

Firstly, the team in the office at Menaggio were fantastic, friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful. Although we were a little overwhelmed on our arrival, it had been a long journey and we weren't quite ready to be taking decisions on boat hire and restaurant bookings. However the staff were quick to offer coffee and lots and lots of information, most of which was hard to take in at that point. Some general leaflets and basic timetables and opening times would have been sufficient for us.

Instructions to find the villa were clear and we were met on arrival and shown around, which was really useful. The welcoming tray with tea coffee, milk, wine and breakfast was a really lovely surprise, as finding shops open on your first day in a foreign town is always difficult.

The villa was superb, and we really couldn't fault it. It was beautiful and all we dreamed and imagined it might be. We were intrigued by all the personal treasures in the cabinets and paintings on the walls. There was plenty of room for ourselves and our 4 teenaged children. The garden was beautiful also and we enjoyed eating outside.

In the kitchen, it would be really useful to have washing up detergent and some sort of cloth or washing up brush. It was Monday before we could get to a super market and buy these items. (I know the dishwasher was there, and we found the dishwasher tablets)

By far our best day was when we hired the boat and had a full day on the lake. The man(can't remember his name, but he was English) who handles the bookings in Menaggio was excellent and we found the information he gave us really useful.

We did experience some engine trouble towards the end of our day but this was handled really swiftly, we were rescued and our boat was replaced with a bigger, faster boat which we were told we could have for an extended period as compensation, much to the children's delight.

Docking wasn’t always straightforward or easy, but that was largely down to our inexperience. The whole experience was simply wonderful, and I’m not really that keen on small boats!!

We all enjoyed the free access to the Lido.The restaurant was reasonably priced.

Finally I have to say we had a fantastic holiday, it is quite difficult to find somewhere both adults and teens can be happy. Lake Como is beautiful and team certainly helped us to enjoy it
