Holidays in Cadenabbia are the perfect choice if you want a real slice of Italian lake life in a colourful and vibrant setting.
The Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo
The villa was built at the beginning of 1700 for the Marquis Clerici from Milan. Late in the same century, it became property of the Count Sommariva from Lodi, who married Clerici's daughter. In 1856 the Villa was sold to Princess Marianna of Prussia, who gave it as a wedding present to her daughter Carlotta, when she married Prince George of Sachsen. At the end of the 1st World War, the Italian State annexed the villa as booty of war. It was then decided to open both the gardens and the villa to the public under the management of Ente Villa Carlotta, as it is nowadays. Inside the Villa it is possible to admire some paintings by Hayez, Vikar, Lordon and Migliara, some fragments of frescoes by Acquisti and some sculptures by Canova and Thorwaldsen together with some important antique tapestries and furniture. Count Sommariva planned the very first part of the garden in perfect Italian style, with a fountain in its centre, as it is still possible to see in the fore garden at the entrance. At that time the garden was not as wide as nowadays. It was the Prince of Sachsen who enlarged it toward Cadenabbia, planning it after the English style and taking good care of setting the plants in order to emphasize the beauty of the landscape. The American poet Longfellow after visiting Villa Carlotta gardens wrote:
I ask myself " is this a dream?
Will it all vanish into air?
Is there a land of such supreme
And perfect beauty anywhere?
The gardens as they are today, are famous for the blooming of the azaleas (end of April - beginning of May).
The Villa Balbianello in Lenno
Built for Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini at the end of the XVIII century, the Villa stands on the tip of a steep promontory overlooking Lake Como, almost opposite Bellagio. Today, the villa has the appearance desired by its last owner, the explorer Guido Monzino, with a rich collection of Chinese, African and pre-Colombian art, precious English and French furniture of the 1700s and the small museum with documents and mementoes of his expeditions. Yet the true masterpiece is the panoramic terraced garden dominated by the elegant "loggia" with three arches rising on the highest point of the promontory.
Cadenabbia di Griante
In the centre and on the shores of Lake Como,there is Griante Cadenabbia. It's exactly in the front of Bellagio where the Lake is divided.
Griante Cadenabbia is a little urban place founded by the Celts in the 500 b. C. that has a beautiful Lido ,just front of the Hotel Brittania Excelsior and Riviera Hotel.
The Lido di Cadenabbia: Beach & Bar & Discoteques & Restaurant.
Enjoy the facilities of the Lido di Cadenabbia to 100 meters from the House.-It is situated on the bank of the lake ,facing the peninsula of Bellagio,and offers a unique sweeping view of the central area of Lake Como if you can sun-bath by the swimming pool or on the sandy beach ,or you can choose to lay in the cool shade of its garden.There is a bar service where you can taste fantastic long drinks and cocktails and its restaurant is well known for its typical sea-food dishes.On week-ends it has one of the most elegant Discoteques in the region.
