About the property


To describe Griante who better to enlist than none other than Longfellow wrote of this pretty village in 1879. I ask myself is this a dream? Will it vanish into air? Is there a land of such supreme and perfect beauty anywhere? Holidaymakers who have visited the region will no doubt bare testimony to the statement. Cadennabia and Griante forms one town, Cadennabia on the lake and Griante, a residential area perched 50 metres up the hill looking down on the lake. The residence features 9 spacious, beautifully appointed, luxury homes situated in a tranquil location. Choose from 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms many with 2 bathrooms, terrace plus large communal outside area featuring pool in summer plus all year round sauna and jacuzzi. Ideally located to reach nearby Villa Carlotta with its majestic gardens, Bellagio directly across the lake, the Cadennabia and Menaggio golf club, shingle beach, lido and pool and golden sand beach all available either by foot or a short drive.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The apartments are perfect to discover the area. The ferry to Bellagio leaves from Griante. The nearest pizzaria is really good, playgrounds in little walking distance. Lots of attractions not very far.The apartments are very bright, well designed, big and fantastic views. Nice terrace. Little supermarket 2 min from the house with fresh bread and friendly service.The swimming pool is a nice size and the jacuzzi a big plus. We had a great time!

Peggy, Amsterdam. May 2011

We just wanted to say a big thank you for the week we spent in Griante Residence 8, the apartment was beautiful and exceeded our expectations with it having everything you could possibly need or desire. We definitely hope to return next year or the year after for another visit. A beautiful part of the world and a beautifully maintained set of apartments. Everyone else we spoke too whilst we were there were equally thrilled with theirs too. Thank you once again. Laura, Andrew and Lexi Tipping. August 2011

Spacious clean and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

It was easy to find even though our plane had been delayed for over 2 hours and we ended up arriving at night in the dark. Matteo met us at the meeting point and we followed him to the apartment. It look a few days to get used to the narrow roads and the driving but the views were amazing and there were so many restaurants to choose from. It is a beautiful part of the world and we hope t return some day with our bikes in tow.

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

Superb accommodation, pool, jacuzzi (didn’t use sauna).

Apartment was huge, clean and everything you need for a holiday.

Pool was brilliant although some of the beds need fixing, the sauna was great too but the steps up to it were a bit wobbly.

The steps up to the apartment from the main road through Griante was a bit challenging, for me anyway, but after a couple of wines you don’t notice it and there’s a lovely bar half way up, for a glass of water of course.

We arrived on a Sunday and the supermarket was closed, shopped local which was a bit more expensive, the supermarket was great though, had everything you need.

We went trips to Bellagio, Lake Laguna (Switzerland), Como and hired a speed boat for 2 hrs on the Lake, all of which were amazing.

Matteo was really nice and very helpful, recommending local places to visit and things to do, unfortunately we only spent a week there so didn’t have time to do all we wanted.

Highly recommend this accommodation, we had a brilliant time.

Thanks Matteo, Karen Garry Scott Andrew and Lisa

Most enjoyable in a lovely villa with fabulous pool and in a beautiful location.

  • 4 of 5

Although this was a stunning place to stay there were one or two silly details which very slightly let it down. For example: the cushions on the sofa in the lounge area were shabby and grubby, the kitchen tap dripped continually, the handle on the main door to the apartment was broken, the clock needed a new battery in in it, so nothing that spoilt our holiday in this beautiful place, just a lack of attention to detail.

Grainte Residence, simply superb!

  • 5 of 5

Throughly enjoyed our time here spent with friends. Thank you Matteo for all your assistance during our stay. I must say the residence did not look like it did in the photographs. It was bigger and better! Always a nice suprise when choosing a holiday home online! We will definitely return.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed last summer in two residences with friends celebrating a special birthday here in Griante and tremezzo residence! The residence here in Griante was a fantastic location close to all amenities, well maintained and has a lovely pool, sauna and jacuzzi. The home is located in a quiet location which made for a peaceful vacation. Its a 10 minute walk to the village and ferry so we recommend a car but otherwise we would award this home 5 stars!

The ferry port is less than 10 minutes walk from the apartment to access the whole lake and all manor of pretty villages

scattered around the lake. Griante is ideally located to reach the beaches dotted around the lake. A golden sand beach is available 10 minutes drive south of the home whilst a beach with 2 swimming pools can be found 5 minutes north of the home in neighbouring Menaggio.


Milan Linate and Malpensa are 1 hour from the apartment. For Bergamo add an extra 30 minutes. We are happy to advise which airlines fly to the local airports from the UK.

Car rental is considered essential to get the most out of your stay in the lakes, however boats and buses access all parts of the lake from the village which is only a couple of minutes walk from the apartment.


A short drive to the quintessential Italian town of Como. Guide books tell you it is famous for Italian silk, however, we prefer its lake front views, pretty piazzas, 600 old churches, gelato shops (nocciala is our favourite!), alfresco dining and shopping for sumptuous Italian delicacies! 35 minutes to the Swiss border for designer outlets in Fox town. 50 minutes to Milan. 5 minutes to the lakeside town of Menaggio or just over a 5 minute walk to the ferry which takes you direct to Bellagio.

Further Details:

Tremezzo is 5 minutes from the home where the famous Villa Carlotta gardens can be found as well as the beautiful Parco Meyer garden ideal for an aperitif or some sunbathing next to the lake!

Menaggio, with it's palm lined walkways is another pretty lake village worth exploring. Many boat activities from windsurfing to sailing are available on the lake as well as other water sports.

Mountain bikes are also available for hire if you wish to venture into the vast mountains that surround the lake.

There are plenty of restaurants and places to visit we are happy to recommend. Just ask!

5 minutes drive to supermarkets north or south of the home, banks and more shops. Mini market and restaurants approximately 10 minutes walk from the home.

Gym and tennis court here in Griante.

The famous church of San Martino, perched high up on the hillside is a favourite for walkers and sightseers alike with The Bar Veccia Torre worth a visit on route to the church to view the unique paintings available to purchase as well as the refreshments available.

The lido beach bar, pool and restaurant is a real find for families here in the village on the lake front. Plenty of restaurants, a tearoom, plus a sophisticate disco on board a permanently moored boat are available to visit here on the lakefront in Cadennabia.
