Griante Residence Apt 4
About the home
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.

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.

The Lombardy / Lake Como Area region
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 a 10 minutes walk to the ferry which takes you direct to Bellagio.
The Cadenabbia Griante area
The ferryport is less than10 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 & 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.

Lake Como is a magnificent setting and the apartment at Residence Griante provided a perfect base for both relaxation and exploring the local area. We had great weather for most of our stay and enjoyed a few days relaxing at the apartment and using the pool. The local area is absolutely beautiful and I would highly recommend exploring the nearby lakeside villages. We hired a boat in Mennagio and although expensive it was well worth it to get a look around the lake and it was great fun mooring at some of the villages across the lake for an ice cream.
The apartment was very clean, well equipped and comfortable with great service from the Italian representative of the business who was very professional and helpful. There is a lovely shop just a minutes walk from the apartment and also some restuarants within walking distance although Menaggio (a 5 minute drive) is more attractive with more choice. It is very family friendly and there were a number of families staying within the complex. The only downside was that some of the bedrooms in the apartment were below ground level and therefore it was slightly musty downstairs with no view of the outdoors. The wifi is also expensive at 30 euros for one device to be connected.

Apartment was as good as it looked on the website. Lovely location, away from the noise of the main lake road but close enough to walk down the hillside (via stepped path) to the lakeside. Views from the apartment are amazing, glistening lights of the towns across the lake by night and rolling mountains by day.
Found lots to do to amuse children including lots of time in the pool. Recommend Bellagio, Villa Carlotta, Menagio for an evening meal, waterfall at Bellano, Verena by ferry. Thoroughly recommend a great restaurant - Bella Isola in Tremezzo and Cantina Follie for wine tasting and fabulous lunch of local cheeses and meats.
