My wife and I stayed for three nights at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo as part of a trip through the Northern Italian Lakes region to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Wow!The hotel is even more beautiful in person than in the photos. The location is perfect - a short ferry ride from Bellagio and Varenna, but quieter and more private than either. You are literally steps away from Villa Carlotta and about 10 mins by car from the beautiful Villa Balbanielli.
It's not inexpensive, by any stretch, and we splurged for the corner lake view room, but it was well worth it. The views off our balcony were to die for, and the room was one of the most comfortable ever. Staff is friendly and professional, almost springing into action to help you out with reservations, directions, etc. We felt pampered and cared for.
The spa is amazing - make sure to carve out time to spend some time there - and the bar makes a mean Vesper martini. The grounds behind the hotel are stunning; we hiked up to see the "teddy bear" views from high above the hotel and the effort was well worth it. The pools and tennis court were wonderful.More
