Villa Bertoni Terrazza - Lake Front, Tremezzo, Lombardy

Weekly from €1,386
Rent ID: #151 Baths: 2 Beds: 3 Sleeps: 6
A classic period Italian villa apartment by the water on Lake Como.

An elegant and stylish period villa on the lake front comprising a gorgeous three bedroom apartment with panoramic views and a stunning lakeside position by Tremezzo marina on Lake Como, exclusively from Bella Como.

Villa Bertoni sits discreetly on the lake front, separated from the water only by the lake road that curves around the natural bay making up the marina in Tremezzo. Behind the imposing stone walls and grand gardens at the front of the villa is the neo classical design of the villa typical of the 1860’s when it was constructed.

From the lake front road and through the iron gates the driveway sweeps through the gardens to the parking area at the rear of the villa. Along the driveway there are ancient trees and a classical Italian garden with extensive lawns, fountains and many interesting period features. A theme that is carried through to the gardens at the rear too.

After parking you enter the villa and into a large hallway. From the hallway on ground level there is a door that leads to the apartment. The ground at the rear of the property is higher than the front, making the apartment a ground floor apartment but with an elevated front giving stunning views across the gardens and lake.

Into the apartment you will immediately be struck by the quality of the building and the interior. The gorgeous honey golden parquet floors go from room to room. From the hallway you enter the impressive living and dining area with its high ceilings covered in the most stunning frescoes. It has two large lake facing windows, a marble fireplace, designer furniture and dining table for six people. The furniture is a mix of new pieces and some gorgeous antiques. At the far end of the living space are large doors that open out on to the extensive L-shaped terrace (from which the apartment takes its name) with its elevated position that wraps around the apartment. It has a large Dedon table and chairs for outside dining and sun loungers. Large sun blinds above can be pulled out to shield you from the heat of the sun or to make the area cosier for eating outside. The views are panoramic and take in the flawless gardens and breathtaking views across the lake.

Back inside and again from the hallway there is the master bedroom with double bed and rear garden facing windows. Again the furnishings are exquisite.

Further along the hallway there is a single bedroom and a luxurious bathroom with bath.

At the end of the hallway you enter the kitchen which has everything you need to create the perfect Italian dinner. It also has a small table and chairs - perfect for breakfast.

From the hallway again and up a short flight of polished wooden stairs you enter the upstairs bedroom suite that comprises a twin bedroom with small garden window, a bathroom with shower and a dressing area on the large landing with wardrobes and a large sofa bed. The finish and quality are delightful and make the bedroom suite very welcoming and cosy.

Though the apartment does not have a washing machine there is a laundrette conveniently located five minutes away in the next village.

In the grounds there are extensive shared gardens and a rear sun terrace, mature trees and well cared for gardens. Guests are welcome to enjoy the grounds.

For larger parties and greater flexibility the apartment below (Villa Bertoni Portico) can be booked at the same time.

Villa Bertoni Terrazza - lake front, sleeping up to six people. Living/dining area with large private terrace, kitchen with dishwasher, one double bedroom, one twin/double bedroom, one single bedroom, two bathrooms one with bath and one with shower, separate dressing area with sofa bed, extensive private gardens. Please be aware there is a €70 charge for final cleaning payable on arrival. Cots can be hired for €30 per week but guests need to provide their own cot linen. Pre-loaded Internet keys can be hired for €35 per week but must be ordered at least one week in advance to ensure availability (not suitable for IPads).

In the village of Cadenabbia on the lakefront is a private swimming pool and lido with bar that can be used by Bella Como guests for a small daily charge. There is also a gorgeous lakeside public park with fountains, access to the lake for swimming and a bar/cafe just a minutes walk from Villa Bertoni.

Out and about without a car

Walking is both easy and enjoyable around this part of the lake. Approximately a five-minute walk into either Tremezzo or Mezzegra will reward you with fresh bread from the bakers, a choice of general stores and green grocers who sell local produce that has just been picked or pulled. You are on the lake front facing the marina and the stunning promenade for romantic walks and just five minutes from the local ferry port from which you can travel across the lake to Bellagio for example.

The piazzas and streets have wonderful family run cafés and restaurants that are open most days from dawn till late where locals meet on the way to work for a brioche and espresso, or after work for a relaxing glass of Prosecco. There is also a good selection of restaurants within walking distance including 'Al Veluu' , 'Risorgimento' and 'La Darsena' which must be three of the finest eateries on the lake. 'Helvetia', 'Red & White', 'Azalea' and 'El Timon' are also a short walk away for those lake side lunches and evening meals or a cocktail.

Tremezzo and Mezzegra are in the centre of the recently opened 'greenways'; these give you clear routes (denoted by beautiful green granite slabs and steel markers) for some of the best walks around the lake. You are also close to Villa Balbianello (of James Bond fame) and the stunning gardens of Villa Carlotta.

Our family of four adults had a wonderful holiday in this truly beautiful part of Italy. The location of Villa Bertoni in Tremezzo was brilliant and the apartment was lovely, especially the terrace and the lounge and it was nice to stay in an older type property with style. It is true that the views are stunning, and for this reason I would recommend it.

There are a few things that do need mentioning though.
1 We were very impressed that there was a small but very useful welcome pack on arrival.
2) The polished wooden stairs to the upper bedroom are steep and slippery, verging on being dangerous and a note needs to be added that this room and the upstairs (very dated) shower room are only accessible to the able bodied. Although there is a shower over the downstairs bath, it is difficult to use as there is no bracket to hold the shower head on the wall and there is no shower curtain. Disabled people will struggle to shower in this apartment.

I hope my comments will be of help to you in improving the service you have provided, which has otherwise been very good. Thank you for a very enjoyable holiday.

Dear Dave,

We had a fantastic time at the villa. The location and the character of the villa was outstanding.

As we've mentioned before, the lack of washing machine posed problems with 3 kids. And in the last 2 days when the temperatures dropped, we definitely felt the cold. Our kids were wearing their winter coats in the house.

Thank you for making it a personable experience and will definitely come back!

Best Regards

Great holiday in lovely apartment. Spacious, comfortable, well appointed, with a fabulous terrace and view. Just some minor gltches. The neighbouring (loud) church bells went on and on and on! Other than that, we had a good time, and found ourselves perfectly placed to enjoy the Lake, e.g. not far from ferry station. Would return.
David was an excellent host and we would certainly use bellacomo again.

Thanks for all the help with this vacation. We loved our rental. Wish we would have had another set of keys but other than that it was perfect for us.

Bellacomo was brill from start to finish booking was easy,was met by Dave and given a run down of things to do and see. Karen looked after us while we were there too
The only negative we could think of was a little bit of road noise from the lake road below.
Best place to be cant wait to come back.

Great old apartment in a fabulous location, with spectacular high frescoed ceilings, elegant tall windows and doors, the most spectacular and gracious grounds, a huge private deck and a real sense of history.

Lovely to stay in such an appropriately elegant villa for this beautiful lake.

Beds and rooms were very comfy, David made us feel very welcome and was meticulous in his introduction to the apartment, and we felt very comfortable about contacting him for anything we needed, not that this was necessary.

There were just a few things we'd do differently - the apartment is very personal to its owners, so we were unsure whether we could use some of the items in the kitchen, a few small issues we really wished there was a washing machine, Sky or even a couple of English TV programmes and of course wifi! Without these last items I'm not sure a family would be happy staying for longer than the four days we did.

Many thanks for a truly lovely stay!

We all loved our stay, the views from the villa were absolutely beautiful.
Our only negative comments would be the towels and linen are looking quite tired and could do with a freshen up.
I say this not to complain but in order to improve to even higher standards.

It was a pleasure to have David welcome us and be on hand if we need anything throughout our stay. It is this kind of service that will ensure we continue to bring our business to BellaComo in the future.

Kind regards,

Tina (Australia)

We debated between 3 and 4 stars for accomodations ... had there been water in the fountains, more pillows in the bedrooms, wifi, and washer ... it would have been a solid 4. The villa was a solid 4 in every other category so overall a 4. For context, to get a 5 in our ratings everything has to be best possible ... and would be out of our budget.

We would gladly rent the villa again if we needed 3 bedrooms.

Had a great stay! Appreciated the organizing of the taxis and restaurant recommendations. Thanks again

This was a beautiful, well equipped villa set in lovely grounds. Would definitely stay there again. Its location was excellent to see the best the lake has to offer. Ferries were within walking distance which meant we could use the boats to travel around the lake. It was also easy to get to Monza and Milan. Would thoroughly recommend this villa.
