Lake Como Resort Holidays
Soak up stunning lake and mountain views on a Lake Como holiday. Beautiful, tranquil Como, Europe’s deepest lake, has attracted celebrities for centuries. Lake Como holidays let you discover magnificent Alpine scenery, elegant villas and gardens, picturesque lakeshore towns and some of the best cuisine in Italy.
Our favourite Lake Como resorts include the romantic lakeshore town of Bellagio. Climb its ancient stepped alleyways and enjoy stunning panoramic views of the lake from Villa Serbelloni. Picture-perfect Menaggio has Alpine-style painted houses around the harbour, overlooked by a ruined Medieval castle. Cadenabbia and Tremezzo are also lovely resorts, and with our choice of elegant Lake Como hotels, your holiday will be blissful.
CADENABBIA On the western lakeside with fine views over to Bellagio, picturesque Cadenabbia is perfectly placed for enjoying everything the lake offers. Shuttered houses and hotels fringe the water alongside a quay where regular ferries stop to take you to all Como's towns and beauty spots. No stay here is complete without visiting nearby Villa Carlotta - a splendid 17th century mansion replete with orange-scented gardens and extravagant, art-filled interiors.
TREMEZZINA Called the Azalean Riviera for the azaleas that bloom here in springtime, Tremezzina is a western stretch of lakeshore running from Lenno through Tremezzo to Cadenabbia. Here, classical hotels and villas gaze over the lake towards Bellagio and its lush mountain backdrop. Catch a ferry to explore this chocolate-box town, hike up Monte Grona for heart-stopping views or tour nearby Villa Balbianello, a fairytale villa crowning a beautiful promontory.
