Discover Lake Como from Grand Hotel Tremezzo

September 19, 2017 Luxury Hotels No Comments Email Email

From its waterfront location on Italy’s sparkling Lake Como, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo offers guests a truly luxurious experience. Courtesy of the hotel’s expert Concierge service, guests are able to discover the wonderful leisure and cultural activities that the water, villages and walking paths of Lake Como have to offer.

Discover the lake
From the hotel’s own marina, guests are welcome to enjoy bespoke lake excursions on Ruy and Batt, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s motorboats. Batt, a Venetian Lancia, is the hotel’s newest acquisition and was named in honour of hotel owner and CEO Valentina de Santis’s beloved grandfather, for whom Batt was an affectionate nickname. She was designed by the architect Ruggero Vanelli, and was made-to-measure by the Vizianello shipyard in Venice. Ruy is a period Venetian motor launch and a veritable homage to the allure of the aristocracy. A true classic, she was built in 1961 by the Cucchini shipyard in Venice.

The boats are at guests’ disposal for exclusive and enchanting private tours of Lake Como, from exploring the lake’s hidden gems such as historic villas and Romanesque churches to sipping on a favourite cocktail while taking in the glamour of the lake. They are available for any specialty personalised outing, such as sunset viewings and moonlight dips. Upon guests’ wishes, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s Concierge will take care of the details.

Explore the local villages and towns
Beyond the more than 20,000 square metres of private grounds of the opulent 107-year-old hotel, the surrounding towns of Lake Como are waiting to be explored. The hotel’s Concierges are on-hand to organise day trips to any of the authentic, quintessentially Italian villages and vibrant towns close by.

From Como to Bellagio, Lugarno, Lake Maggiore, St Moritz and Verona, the hotel is happy to guide guests as they choose to explore; with a chauffer or perhaps solo, or accompanied by a private guide or even a personal shopper to perfectly enhance the experience.

Nature walks
The landscape surrounding Lake Como is nothing short of stunning, from the charming, lively atmosphere around the shore villages to the dramatic hilltops and sweeping views. The area is perfect for discovering on foot, and guests can be guided by the hotel’s Concierges on the most spectacular walks, from gentle strolls to more challenging mountainside hikes.

Private guides are available to ensure the best of nature is explored. Recommended hikes include the Lake Como Greenway, running along the lake and above the villages to showcase all facets of Como: enchanting hamlets, lake and country views, fine palaces and gardens. Next is a journey to San Martino church, perched on the top of a rocky mountain, and offering breathtaking views. Perched on a mountain crag on the western side of the lake, Sacro Monte di Ossuccio is in a UNESCO world heritage site and is a truly spiritual discovery. And, open only on Sundays, the Chilometro della Conoscenza trail flanks the western bank of the lake for just over 1000 metres and provides an exclusive discovery of a usually prohibited area, including the gardens of three of the most beautiful villas on the lake, Villa Olmo, Villa Sucota and Villa del Grumello.
