About the property

Apartment in Tremezzo, Lake Como, Lombardy, Italy - Stunning, Romantic Location

The interior of the apartment was designed by the Arch. Alessandro Dubini and is a combination of both old and contemporary styles using sympathetic design and building techniques. Many of the materials are reclaimed from the restoration including stunning stone staircases and iron work. Much of the original woodwork has been revealed to expose the hand painted relief and detail. Even the tiles in the bathroom are decorated with gold leaf. Upon entering the Villa through its imposing and original wooden doors, the apartment is situated at the top of a short flight of stone steps. The apartment sits facing the lake with its own side terrace and at the front overlooking the lake is a small vantage point with table and chairs. Through the main door you are immediately aware of the Villa's history and heritage. The hallway mixes new and old and the gorgeous stone cotto floors and whitewashed walls set the tone for the interior of Villa Vecchia Ponchetta. A blend of modernity, character and classic elegance. From the external entrance to the apartment there is a stone staircase that leads to the rear gardens and swimming pool. They are not suitable for guests with mobility problems and children should be supervised. Once at the top of the garden there is a large, very private swimming pool with a wood decked terrace. From the pool and terrace there are stunning views across the lake and to the mountains behind.

There are three airports which are within easy reach of the apartment.

Milan Malpensa is the easiest - about a 45 - 60 minute drive, followed by Milan Linate and then Bergamo.

It is possible to use public transport to get to the apartment and Tremezzo is well serviced by buses and ferries, so car hire is not essential.

Lovely apartment with stunning views Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was easy to find - right next door to the Grand Hotel Tremezzo. It was a great size for the two of us - large bedroom and living room. The underfloor heating was a welcome discovery when we returned from our explorations. The apartment was well equipped though hot drinks and toast were the extent of our cooking! There are several restaurants within a few minutes walk - all reasonably priced and with free wi-fi (none available in the apartment). There is a bus stop and boat stop really close by and Villa Carlotta is a two minute walk. Unfortunately (due to rather a lot of rain) we didn't get to use the pool though it looked very clean and inviting (up quite a few flights of stairs so not suitable for anyone who struggles with staircases). The local Greenway is worth exploring - we caught the ferry to Lenno one morning and walked back to Tremezzo along the Greenway - all well signposted. Bellagio and Menaggio were great places to visit. Menaggio has the largest supermarket - Conad - if you are self-catering. Communication was great from the owner Kate - very friendly and helpful.

Lake Como and the apartment are definitely worth a stay - highly recommended.
