Grand Hotel Tremezzo has been on my “must stay” list for as long as I could remember. First off, it is one of the most iconic properties on Lake Como. Also, the location is ideal on the northern side of Lake Como with just a quick ferry ride across the lake to Bellagio. And did I mention the gorgeous pool right on the lake?

Last month I headed here with my friend Caitlin Collins of August Leigh Photography, and we felt like royalty. Opening up our balcony doors to the direct lake view was surreal and looked like we stepped into a dream.

Grand Hotel Tremezzo is perfect for anything from a honeymoon to a girls getaway. Romance surrounds you, yet it was such a special place for us friends to catch up and make new memories.

Morning coffee (or mimosas!) couldn’t be better than in our stunning room with a lake view. We loved grabbing a morning espresso, opening the balcony doors and laying around getting work done. There’s something so motivating and inspiring about the Lake Como view to start your day!

With a breakfast buffet like Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s, how do you possibly choose what to eat? We went with a little bit of everything: made to order omelets, veggies, smoked salmon, pastries and lots of fruit. I loved the live-action station for eggs-to-order, pancakes, waffles, or crepes. Also, they made me an almond milk cappuccino – score!


It’s no secret that Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s pool is one of the best on Lake Como. What many people do not know is that they have 3 pools, both indoor and outdoor, so guests can swim year round! Grand Hotel Tremezzo also has the most exclusive and only private beach on Lake Como.

After a day of exploring (take a ferry to nearby Bellagio or Varenna), we headed back to our room to once again to enjoy the “bucket-list-goals” view from our balcony. We ordered a pizza from a nearby pizzeria, popped a bottle of Prosecco, and took in the Lake Como view for a perfect in-room aperitivo moment. With views like this, I am not sure how we ever left our room!

We walked up the hill to Ristorante Al Veluu for dinner (warning: it is quite the walk, so come prepared – we loved the walk but it is not for the faint of heart!) Not only does their hospitality make you feel like you are walking into someone’s personal home, but the experience itself is unforgettable. The panoramic views of Lake Como are unlike anything I have ever seen, and the fresh and delicious produce is straight from the garden (which is on-site so you can walk down and see everything growing!) They plan their menu seasonally off of what they have growing in the garden, so we dined on newly harvested asparagus, the last of their artichokes for the season, and fish from the lake right below us.
