About this location

The Lake Como region

The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.

It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.

All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Warming, inspriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto

narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).

Griante

From the property guests can explore the village of Griante which offers a local Restaurant, Bar, Tennis courts and beautiful views. The famous beauty spot and church of San Martino is situated approximately 1 hour’s walk up the mountainside along the footpath which begins its route from the village.

The very picturesque lakefront of Griante which offers panoramic views towards Bellagio features a public beach, famous Italian Restaurant, Car and Passenger Ferry at Cadenabbia and the beautiful visitor attraction of Villa Carlotta with its wonderful botanical gardens.

The very pretty resort town of Menaggio is conveniently situated just 10 minute’s drive away and offers a wide selection of local amenities including Supermarkets, Banks, Boutique shops, delicious Gelataria’s, Lido with beach and swimming pools as well as many other welcome conveniences. The very romantic promenade stretches along the lakeshore of the town and feature breathtaking views of the Lake and can be fully enjoyed with a delicious ice cream!

Grainte and Cadenabbia are one town, or municipality in the Province of Como which is in the Italian region of Lombardy. It lies on the western shore of the lake and is situated between Menaggio and Tremezzo. Cadenabbia is the lakeside area whilst Grainte is the area rising to the hillside.

For many years Griante has attracted famous people, for example, Villa Ricordo (Villa Margherita) was the location Guiseppe Verdi chose to compose the aria La Traviata, it was also here where Stendhal composed one of his many masterpieces Chartreuse de Parme. Griante was also a popular destination for Royalty, including Nicholas 11 of Russia, Queen Victoria, Kaiser Gulielmo 11 and also Pope Pio X1.

The area is renowned for the wonderful flowers and plants which grow in abundance, due to the sheltered location and is known as the "Riviera of Azaleas". Cadenabbia has many restaurants and shops, and also a good ferry service. There is a lovely walk from Griante up to the San Martino church. The views are truly unforgettable, with flowers and butterflies all the way. The path is quite steep in parts and will take about an hour each way, but the views will make it a walk to remember.

The most famous Villa on the Lake, Villa Carlotta, is in Cadenabbia and has many interesting features, especially a great art collection, luxurious rooms and wonderful gardens with a wide variety of plants from all over the world. The little Church of S. Martino sits on the mountainside and although the walk up to it it somewhat precarious, it should be on your list of places to visit as the views are unrivalled.
