Sitting at the water’s edge, this is a charming palazzo with great character and a welcoming atmosphere.

A beautifully preserved classic style and an almost unrivalled location make this a popular choice in Menaggio. Views of the lake are available around almost every corner and it is just a short walk to the centre of the town and the ferry port. A real highlight here is the heated outdoor swimming pool which is is superbly positioned in pretty gardens right at the water’s edge – a rarity in the region. The surrounding sun loungers are placed in the perfect spot if all you want to do is soak up the sun as well as the lake and mountain views.

There are two restaurants here, one of which is open seasonally. The refined à la carte Clio Restaurant overlooks the lakeside gardens and is open for dinner. The laid-back La Veranda Restaurant is where, during the summer season, you can dine al fresco overlooking the lakeside gardens and the mountains. This is also where the generous buffet breakfast is served each day, as well as a set four-course dinner each evening. The hotel’s central setting means you can also head out to the town’s restaurants, cafés and bars if you’d like to try the local cuisine or go for a pre- or post-dinner drink.

The rooms here are simple, yet spacious and comfortable with a traditional design. There are modest Standard Rooms which overlook the resort of Menaggio, however we highly recommend opting for a Lake View Room which overlooks beautiful Lake Como. There are also Lake View Rooms with Balcony that have a small balcony with pool and lake views.
