To describe Griante who better to enlist than none other than Longfellow wrote of this pretty village in 1879. I ask myself is this a dream? Will it vanish into air? Is there a land of such supreme and perfect beauty anywhere? Holidaymakers who have visited the region will no doubt bare testimony to the statement. Cadennabia and Griante forms one town, Cadennabia on the lake and Griante, a residential area perched 50 metres up the hill looking down on the lake. The residence features 9 spacious, beautifully appointed, luxury homes situated in a tranquil location. Choose from 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms many with 2 bathrooms, terrace plus large communal outside area featuring pool in summer plus all year round sauna and jacuzzi. Ideally located to reach nearby Villa Carlotta with its majestic gardens, Bellagio directly across the lake, the Cadennabia and Menaggio golf club, shingle beach, lido and pool and golden sand beach all available either by foot or a short drive.

We stayed here with family last September at Griante Residence and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The photos do not do the residece justice. The apartment is spacious, clean and very modern and was perfect for my family. The home is a 10 minute walk to restaurants, bars, shops and ferry and a few minutes more walking back up the hill, but well worth it as the location is extremely serene and was perfect for recharging our batteries. Great host, very simple booking process. No complaints whatsover, thank you!
This was my second visit to the Residence Griante in 4 years. This time stayed in appt 8 with fabulous views from the balcony over to Bellagio. The accommodation is very clean, minimalist style, modern and comfortable - everything you could want is provided. Matteo is in easy contact and visits to sort out anything very promptly, thus ensuring guests are completely comfortable. The pool is warm and a good size and both times have found fellow guests to be private but friendly. Griante feels like a genuine Italian village, which is completely non-touristy, but with a short walk down to the lakeside where there are more tourist facilities available. Would recommend location and accommodation highly.
Overall we have just returned from a super week in Griante, Lake Como. The apartment was clean, modern, spacious, well equipped and in a good location a short distance up a hill from centre and shops, restaurants. We paid extra for Wi-Fi but the service was intermittent so should perhaps be included in the price and not an optional extra. The beds were very hard and uncomfortable and should be replaced to match the standard of the rest of the apartment. The gardens and pool area are clean and well kept but there was a shortage of sun loungers when the weather was good and guests were at the pool for the number of apartments. The owner Matteo was very helpful and met us on arrival/departure. Overall we had a lovely week and would thoroughly recommend hiring a speed boat for 1-2 hours to see other towns/villas on Lake Como.
The communication on the lead up to our arrival was smooth, Barrie assisted us with our transfer and restaurant booking which we were very pleased with. Mattheo came to meet us to do give the keys and do the paperwork, again it was effortless. I would recommend staying at these apartments, they were good value for money and the whole experience was pleasant.
We were part of a large group celebrating a special 50th birthday who stayed here and Tremezzo Residence. Griante is a great base with all amenities and the residence is brand spanking new, well appointed accommodation with a lovely pool, jacuzzi and sauna. The residence in our view was even nice than the photos on the site and the video we viewed which is not always the case, so a pleasant and welcome surprise! Thanks to Matteo for all his help during our stay.

The ferry port is less than 10 minutes walk from the apartment to access the whole lake and all manor of pretty villages
scattered around the lake. Griante is ideally located to reach the beaches dotted around the lake. A golden sand beach is available 10 minutes drive south of the home whilst a beach with 2 swimming pools can be found 5 minutes north of the home in neighbouring Menaggio.
Milan Linate and Malpensa are 1 hour from the apartment. For Bergamo add an extra 30 minutes. We are happy to advise which airlines fly to the local airports from the UK.
Car rental is considered essential to get the most out of your stay in the lakes, however boats and buses access all parts of the lake from the village which is only a couple of minutes walk from the apartment.
A short drive to the quintessential Italian town of Como. Guide books tell you it is famous for Italian silk, however, we prefer its lake front views, pretty piazzas, 600 old churches, gelato shops (nocciala is our favourite!), alfresco dining and shopping for sumptuous Italian delicacies! 35 minutes to the Swiss border for designer outlets in Fox town. 50 minutes to Milan. 5 minutes to the lakeside town of Menaggio or just over a 5 minute walk to the ferry which takes you direct to Bellagio.
Tremezzo is 5 minutes from the home where the famous Villa Carlotta gardens can be found as well as the beautiful Parco Meyer garden ideal for an aperitif or some sunbathing next to the lake!
Menaggio, with it's palm lined walkways is another pretty lake village worth exploring. Many boat activities from windsurfing to sailing are available on the lake as well as other water sports.
Mountain bikes are also available for hire if you wish to venture into the vast mountains that surround the lake.
There are plenty of restaurants and places to visit we are happy to recommend. Just ask!
5 minutes drive to supermarkets north or south of the home, banks and more shops. Mini market and restaurants approximately 10 minutes walk from the home.
Gym and tennis court here in Griante.
The famous church of San Martino, perched high up on the hillside is a favourite for walkers and sightseers alike with The Bar Veccia Torre worth a visit on route to the church to view the unique paintings available to purchase as well as the refreshments available.
The lido beach bar, pool and restaurant is a real find for families here in the village on the lake front. Plenty of restaurants, a tearoom, plus a sophisticate disco on board a permanently moored boat are available to visit here on the lakefront in Cadennabia.
