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 booked three apartments here at Griante Residence which made for a memorable stay. Our kids loved playing in the pool which for the most part they had to themselves ( i think there are 9 homes at the residence in total) Griante is a great base to explore the lake with a ferry to all major tourist haunts as well as a good selection of bars, restaurants and convenience stores. As you reach the lakefront the village is popular with english speaking guests. The residence here was tucked away 10 minutes from the lake so quieter, away from the tourists and very relaxing. The home was exactly as advertised, which is always a relief when booking online over the net! A special mention for the host who was always available and always charming and the booking process which was seamless. Thank you to all at Griante Residence.
We stayed here in July and enjoyed our stay immensely. The home is extremely well appointed. We enjoyed dining on the balcony, taking a dip in the pool and relaxing in the jacuzzi. Griante Reisdence was a real find and Matteo, the owner, lovely to deal with and easy to communicate with as he speaks excellent English! The residence is perched above Griante and just a short walk down to the ferry and all amenities. Would definitely choose griante residence again shoud we retrun to Como which we would very much like to do so in the not too distant future.
The apartment was exceptionally good in a nice small complex. It was spacious and clean. The owner Matteo was very attentive.
The location is very nice - a shop just down the road and a little pub a few steps further on.
The views were stunning and the weather was great.
We had a lovely time exploring the area. The apartments were exceptional and had everything we needed. The local amenities were conveniently located. We especially appreciated the friendly hospitality from the manager, who was very keen to make sure our family enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.
Special interest holidays:
Local cookery, art courses and wine tasting available on request. Please ask for more details.
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.
