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.
Activities to try in the surrounding area include swimming, hiking, cycling, tennis, golf, canoeing, power boat hire, sailing, windsurfing, quad biking and other adventure sports including paragliding.
From the property guests can enjoy the popular Tremezzo lakefront which features a wide variety of cafes, bars, restaurants, shops, delicatessens and grocery shops. The newly renovated lakefront public park is the perfect spot for picnics, lake swimming and enjoying aperitifs and alfresco lunches in the stunning boathouse bar, ‘La Aqua Cheta’. The wine bar ‘La Cantina Follie’ is situated in the quiet ancient passageways of Tremezzo and is a wonderful way to spend a romantic evening with a vine-covered terrace, am incredible wine cellar and delicious local cheese and meat platters.
Public parking is providing all along the lakefront and the promenade of Tremezzo leads visitors on foot to the popular Lido and to car and passenger ferry port which operates a route to the famous golden triangle towns of Bellagio, Varenna and Menaggio.

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.
There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.
There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.
The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
