This historic and luxurious hotel enjoys magnificent lake views from its superb location on Lake Como.
This grand palace hotel with its imposing turn-of-the-century façade takes you back to the days of grand tours and truly luxurious travel. It’s an elegant retreat with service that comes with a great attention to detail. The classic Italian style has been updated for the 21st-Century guest. Take a dip in the swimming pool in the gardens or the floating pool, right over the lake itself. The infinity pool within the hotel’s three-floor spa has breathtaking views out over the water. There is also a sandy man-made beach and jetty on the lake shore and a seasonal grill restaurant and Champagne bar. The parklands that surround the hotel are also a delight, ascending the hillside in vibrant terraces dotted with statues and filled with blooms throughout the spring and summer. Ascend to the highest point in the gardens for unique views out over the lake.
Dining here is an absolute pleasure with a choice of two restaurants for dinner and three informal options for all-day dining. At La Terrazza Gualitero Marchesi, where your breakfast is served daily, Italian cuisine is created by chef Gualtiero Marchesi. At the L’Escale Trattoria & Wine bar you can try traditional dishes with a modern twist in a cosy booth or on the terrace overlooking the lake. Daytime dining is available at T Pizza and Beach from May to September (subject to weather conditions).
The rooms reflect the grand surroundings of the palace, with classic and luxurious décor and furnishings. There are Prestige and Deluxe Rooms, all with views over the beautiful gardens or, for a supplement across the lake towards the town of Bellagio.
In a panoramic setting above Tremezzo’s lakeside road, adjacent to the Botanical Gardens of Villa Carlotta and close to the ferry landing stage. Approx. 10 minutes by boat from Bellagio
