Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Lake Como
Celebrating its 105th anniversary this year, the newly refurbished Grand Hotel Tremezzo on Italy’s Lake Como is an authentic Art Nouveau palace that beckons as the ultimate in 5-star hospitality. Continuing its status as the grand dame of luxury stays, panoramic views of the stunning lake and Grigne mountains, its position adjacent to Villa Carlotta’s famous gardens, Italian style and flair are just a few of the hotel’s enticing features. When it comes to fine dining, La Terrazza restaurant is renowned as one of the lake’s most beautiful, serving modern Italian cuisine infused with local flavors. Unsurpassed by no other, this is where Greta Garbo often came to dine. Activities are endless, as guests are encouraged to indulge in exclusive treatments by ESPA at the divine TSpa, take a dip in one of the three swimming pools or perhaps take in the surrounding beauty on a bike ride or hiking trail. Owned by the De Santis family and just a one-hour drive from Milan, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo is situated directly opposite the charming town of Bellagio. This year the hotel released its signature fragrance, Acquae di Como, a bespoke scent created from delicate, lightly scented flowers that represent the flora of the iconic lake.
