One of the silver linings of a post-Covid world is that off season is the new in season. But then again Lake Como is, and always has been, a good idea — this fall especially. The hotels are staying open a few weeks more. The weather has been unseasonably warm and glorious. The lake, encircled by trees, is where to really leaf peep. And the food, shopping and culture are always good. Then there’s the Grand Hotel Tremezzo, a bucket-list place to rest your head. And it’s at its best value this October.
The Grand Hotel Tremezzo
This is one of those recommendations, that is like shooting fish in a barrel. The Grand Hotel Tremezzo is the rare family run hotel, that’s been in the family, for over 100 years. You feel it the moment you arrive; there’s a special energy and hospitality that you just can’t create without the passion of an individual owner. From the grand hotel entrance, to the service, food and exquisite rooms, the Grand Hotel Tremezzo is a must if you like Italy. It’s easily one of the top hotels in the country.
Leaf Peep, from the Terrace
Yes, a drive during the fall is beautiful. But what if you can roll out of bed, sit on the terrace, and take in autumn in all its splendor? Well, that’s the deal at the Tremezzo. You don’t have to go very far to take in the season. If you do want to hop in the car, they have chauffeured rides by road and by boat to tour the incredible villas on the Lake. You know, for when you decide to buy your own next to George and Amal.
Value, Value, Value
No one who has ever stayed at the Tremezzo (or at least no one normal) has not felt it was the best money ever spent. It’s serious coin, but the Tremezzo is that special. This fall though until end of October, if you time it right, there are rates as low as 600 euro/night. It doesn’t get you into the biggest suite, but it does get you on property. Of course, there are some baller suites that get you into the 3200 euro/nightly and up range, should that be your preferred adventure. But as we said, it’s the best money ever spent.
It’s Not Complicated
You have a weekend. You may even have a week squirreled away. You’re itching to travel. Now is the time. You get to Lake Como via Milan, which is about 1.5 hours away. It’s even worth it to spend a night on the back end at the Four Seasons Milan, before you fly out. We’ll hook you up [email protected] Just bring your toothbrush, though we can provide that too.
