Your Stay

“Since starting Limelight seventeen years ago I have been fortunate to have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world. I first visited the Grand Hotel Tremezzo in 2011 and instantly fell in love. Everything about the Hotel is absolute perfection and totally epitomised by the CEO Valentina de Santis. She and her wonderful team offer the most amazing service, everything you would expect from a five star hotel but the staff always seem to go that little bit extra and make you feel like you are at home. In my opinion this is the best hotel in the world and I couldn’t recommend it any higher, Everyone connected with Limelight knows how much we love the Grand Hotel Tremezzo”

Local Area


Worldwide known as the “pearl of Lake Como” and just 10 minutes boat distance form Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Bellagio is suspended like a pendant on the promontory where the lake’s western and eastern arms split and head south. It’s impossible not to be smitten by Bellagio’s waterfront of bobbing boats, its maze of steep stone staircases, red-roofed and green-shuttered buildings, dark cypress groves and rhododendron-filled gardens. It sits at the crux of the inverted Y that is Lake Como; the Como and Lecco arms of the Lake wash off to port and starboard. Once in Bellagio you cannot miss Villa Melzi with its English style park, the Basilica di San Giacomo in the center and the viewpoint Punta Spartivento For a spectacular view of the lake and its three branches.


A beguiling village bursting with florid plantlife, exotic flowery perfumes and birdsong, is a short ferry ride away from its rival in postcard beauty Bellagio. Its pastel-coloured houses defy the standard laws of physics, seemingly gripping for all they’re worth to the steep slopes that rise from the lake. From the ferry land, a 15-20 minute stroll follows the shore south and cuts up to Piazza San Giovanni and the town’s main attractions, Villa Cipressi and Villa Monastero with their magnificent gardens. Not far from Varenna is the hamlet of Vezio, dominated by the ruins of the 13th century Castello di Vezio. From this one-time fortified watch tower gaze down upon Varenna and over the lake.

Villa Carlotta

Villa Carlotta, Grand Hotel Tremezzo neighbour, located just 5 minutes walking from the entrance, is the most famous villa on Lake Como, in particular for its centuries-old 70,000sqm park. Its botanic gardens are

filled with colour in spring from orange trees knitted into pergolas and some of Europe’s finest rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias. The villa, strung with paintings, sculptures (some by Antonio Canova) and tapestries, takes its name from the Prussian princess who was given the place in 1847 as a wedding present from her mother. Upstairs, rooms with period furniture provide an insight into the life of the princess.

Villa Del Balbianello

Located just 1 Km outside Lenno, this was where scenes from 2006’s James Bond remake, Casino Royale, and Star Wars Episode II were shot; it is one of the most dramatic locations on Lake Como (if not the world). Built by Cardinal Angelo Durini in 1787, Villa del Balbianello is set amid florid gardens on a promontory. The sculpted gardens, which seem to drip off the high promontory like sauce off a melting ice-cream cone, are the perfect place for hopelessly romantic elopers to spend a day. Visitors are only allowed to walk the 1Km path from the Lenno landing stage to the estate on Tuesday and at weekends. On other days, you have to take a taxi boat from Lenno. If you want to see the villa, you must join a guided tour.
