Lake Como, Milan
The Grand Hotel Tremezzo overlooks the meeting place of the two branches of Lake Como at Bellagio, and is palatial in all senses.
Reminiscent from the outside of some of the world’s finest and most iconic hotels – Rio’s Copacabana Palace, perhaps – the historic and stately palace is like nowhere else on the inside.
Despite occupying such an impressive building, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo has just 83 park or lake view rooms, meaning that there is ample space for five star deluxe facilities including three pools, the T Spa, and the fine dining La Terrazza restaurant, favourite of Greta Garbo.
The Grand Hotel Tremezzo has its own extensive private gardens, and also benefits from being alongside the 18th century Villa Carlotta, whose botanical gardens it overlooks.
Fondues and wine take centre stage in L’Escale, with a lakeside terrace for summer evenings. Watch your chef prepare your grill at your table at T Beach or tuck into a wood-fired pizza at T Pizza.
T Bar is the quintessential hotel bar and an easy place in which to while away many hours over a cigar and a cocktail.
The Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s T Spa uses ESPA products and was renovated in Spring 2013. The indoor infinity pool and loungers overlook the lake, while the outdoor pool is so close to Como itself that it appears to merge with it.
For families, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo has two two-bedroom apartments and a T Kids play area.
