Grand Hotel Tremezzo

Lake Como - Italy


If you’re looking for a romantic escape with a real ‘wow’ factor then treat yourself to a stay at this lavish lakeside retreat.

The Grand Hotel Tremezzo is a Belle Époque beauty that first opened its doors in 1910, and has been dazzling visitors ever since with a winning combination of ornate Art Nouveau interiors, elegant gardens and magnificent views of Lake Como and the Grigne mountains. Period furniture and eye-catching antiques lend real character to the hotel, and you won’t want for modern creature comforts either, with luxurious amenities including an inviting spa and a floating lakeside pool.

The hotel’s location is just fantastic, steps from the historic Villa Carlotta and a few minutes by boat from the beautiful village of Bellagio. With an LGBT-friendly ethos and wonderfully attentive staff, this is a real treat of a hotel where you’ll be spoilt from the moment you arrive.

Nearby Attractions

The Grand Hotel Tremezzo is situated on the western shore of Lake Como, just a 5-minute walk from the stunning Villa Carlotta. This 17th century villa houses an impressive collection of art, including works by Antonio Canova, and is surrounded by beautiful botanical gardens.

It’s a 10-minute boat ride across the lake to Bellagio, the famous ‘pearl of Lake Como’, which sits on a promontory where the lake’s eastern and western arms meet. Other picturesque lakeside towns and villages nearby include Varenna, Menaggio and Como itself, where you’ll find numerous bars and restaurants tucked away amongst the cobbled streets.

The hotel is about an hour’s drive from Milan, Italy’s most LGBT-friendly city. Highlights include La Scala opera house, the striking Duomo cathedral and the fabulous shopping of the Fashion Quarter.


This is an exclusive and intimate hotel with just 90 rooms and suites, decorated in an elegant and ornate style. All rooms include an LCD satellite TV, WiFi, DVD player, mini bar and safe, and the unique Historic Suites all have a private garden or balcony. The romantic Honeymoon Suite is the only one with a four-poster bed, which looks out directly onto the lake, while the more contemporary Rooftop Suites include butler service and a spacious outdoor terrace with private Jacuzzi.

Take a dip in the stunning floating pool which sits on the lake itself, or opt for a more secluded swim at the rear of the hotel in the garden pool. There is also a private beach, complete with Champagne bar, plus a tennis court, fitness centre, private motor launch and watersports including waterskiing and windsurfing. The amazing T Spa is housed in the 18th century Villa Emilia, and includes a heated indoor infinity pool, Hammam and yoga studio, with a menu of tempting treatments by ESPA.

Five restaurants and bars provide an exceptional breadth of choice for such a boutique property. Highlights include L’Escale, a fabulous fondue and wine bar, and the candlelit Italian fine dining of La Terrazza. Other options include the self-explanatory T Pizza and the lakeside terrace at T Bar, where you can enjoy a light lunch or a refreshing cocktail. There are also several lavish lounges, including a library and a billiards room with a beautiful 19th century billiards table.

Villas of Lake Como

Lake Como is surrounded by magnificent Belle Époque villas and exquisite gardens. Guests at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo enjoy exclusive access to the elegant Villa Sola Cabiati, originally built in the 1500s and redesigned for the Dukes of Serbelloni in the 18th century, and Villa Carlotta is just a short walk from the hotel entrance. This famous residence is named after a Prussian princess who received the villa as a wedding present from her mother. Other must-sees include the dramatically located Villa Balbianello, where scenes for ‘Casino Royale’ (the Daniel Craig version) and ‘Star Wars Episode II’ were filmed.
