For the ultimate romantic weekend we chose the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, located on the beautiful Lake Como. We arrived by private taxi from Milan Malpensa within an hour and checked into a Fabulous Lake view double room.
The Grand Hotel Tremezzo is in the most idyllic location, right on the shore of Lake Como, our room looked over the Lake and incredible mountains, making opening your window first thing after waking a real pleasure!
Dinner on our first night was at L’Escale, this is a Fondue and Wine Bar, the first in Lake Como, a truly romantic location, it is a bijou gem, where you can enjoy fabulous and unusual Fondue cuisine and of course delicious wines.
The next morning after waking to the beauty of Lake Como sunrise, we headed down to a sumptuous breakfast in the La Terazza restaurant. Of course we had a Lake view table, and enjoyed our breakfast mesmerised by the stunning Lake and beautiful vistas.
After breakfast we headed down to pick up a water-taxi for a brief water tour of the lake, and a hotel visit, ending at the quaint town of Bellagio… credit card a-ready!
After returning from our mammoth shopping trip in Bellagio, we caught the ferry back to Cadenabbia (15 minutes’ walk from Tremezzo) for a bit of R&R around the pool. Later on that evening we made our way back to the La Terazza restaurant for a very special birthday dinner, again enjoying the beautiful views afforded to this amazing hotel, enjoying watching the sun go down, and the incredible views of the lake and mountains.
The next morning (our last) we spent our time on the ‘sandy beach’ opposite the hotel lake pool… This is a really relaxing location, where you can listen to your music, or read a book, or perhaps watch the residence coming and going from speed and pleasure boats moored to the (floating) pool.
What a lovely weekend, the staff were all so caring, cleanliness was impeccable, food superb and memories made. Thoroughly enjoyable stay… need to get back soon!
