Villa Giardino - Apartment Mela.

A stunning Lombardy villa from a bygone era, Villa Giardino is surrounded by old stone walls and rambling roses. It’s unique position at the end of a private cul de sac means that you will be free from traffic noise and can enjoy peace and quiet whilst never being far from the lake and the heart of Tremezzo.

Set out as a two apartments, “Mela” - a stunning ground floor retreat with access directly onto a lovely shaded terrace with stone table and benches and "Pesca" - on the first floor with views and long balcony.

The villa was constructed about 100 years ago and is built in a very traditional style with most of its original features remaining such as the glass work, garden terrace with stone reliefs, window shutters and madonnina. You will also find an old fashioned Italian garden well stocked with fruit trees, roses, vines and a large lawn which in summer bloom magnificently.

After driving along a quiet road you can park your car (if you have one) inside the secure metal gates of the Villa. There is one space for the each of the two apartments in Villa Giardino.

You enter Villa Giardino through a large wrought iron gate into the gardens. Along a rambling path through the gardens you reach the villa. The entrance to Pesca is to the left up a short stone staircase to the balcony. To reach Mela you turn right at the villa to its shuttered doorway next to the garden terrace.

Apartamento Mela

Through the shutters and door of Mela you immediately enter the living area which has pale tiled flooring and a garden facing window with shutters. the walls are white washed giving a light and airy ambience. The furniture has a contemporary feel with soft leather sofa, two reading chairs, day furniture and TV. The interior is simple yet full of local character.

From the living area you enter the hallway from which you enter the bedrooms and bathroom.

The bathroom is new and has sink, shower, bath, WC and bidet. It is tiled throughout.

The kitchen/diner has ample storage and plenty of space to cook - it has everything you need. The dining area is cosy and has typical Italian qualities where food and eating are at the centre of family life.

The master bedroom is a lovely space. It has white washed walls, wood floors and a large garden facing window that even retains the original glass and shutter, framed with lace curtains typical of an Italian country house. Light streams into this room and it has an amazing ambience.

The generous double bed and wardrobes are all new and of excellent quality.

The second bedroom is a lovely space as well. It has white washed walls, wood floors and a large garden facing window that also retains the original glass and shutter, framed with lace curtains. It has two single beds and a simple, uncluttered layout.

Both apartments can be rented separately or together. When rented together for larger parties the property becomes completely private.

Outside, the terrace and gardens are shared. There are two tables and chairs and sun loungers. The terrace is like going back 100 years. It’s shaded by mature trees and has old benches and a stone table. A real retreat from the heat of the sun.

There is a washing machine in the basement of the villa that is shared by both apartamento Mela and Pesca.

Appartamento Mela - sleeping up to four people. Living room, kitchen/diner, one double bedroom, one twin bedroom, one bathroom with bath, terrace and gardens. 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 nearby 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. Under 12 years go free. In Tremezzo there is also a gorgeous lake side public park with fountains and a bar/cafe. Pictures are above.

Out and about.

Walking is both easy and enjoyable around this part of the lake. Approximately a 15-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 just five minutes further on and you are by the lake and 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' which must be two of the finest eateries on the lake. 'Helvetia', 'Red & White' and 'El Timon' are also a short walk away for those lake side 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.

The apartment was beautiful, and the location was very peaceful and authentic.

We also liked the garden!

hi Karen,

regarding Mela and pesca

many thanks your handling of the problem with my phone, once again
again it was unforgettable vacation, we will return.

kind regards

gabriella

Hi Karen

the holiday was superb given that Tremezzo is in a beautiful location with superb restaurants.

We had a particularly hot week and therefore fans would have been a valuable addition to the property particularly for use at night in the bedrooms.

Hi Guys, just a couple of small issues which did not markedly upset our holiday too much. Firstly, water supply trickled to a halt on the Tuesday & Wednesday - we did expect and received Italian TV which was helpful especially the meteo ! We found the living room may have benefitted from the addition of another chair - the sofa and one chair was a bit cramped for all four of us.
However, great location, great villa, parking a little tricky - the info pack could be improved with a sketch suggestion of where to park your car if not on the drive.
These were such minor points as to not need to call you - however since you asked.......keep up the great work with fabulous accom.

Great place, excellent service.

excellent peaceful location with easy access to other places. Lovely garden and wonderful view.

Very nice place. but as we didn't have a car, it was a bit complicated to use the public transports. We enjoyed walking along the lake.

We had a lovely holiday with Bellacomo and would be happy to recommend the apartment to our friends.
Your representative was very friendly and helpful.
Two suggestions - the foam matress was rather hard and not very comfortable. A proper sprung one would be preferable.
Some large mugs for coffee etc. would have been useful.
I can't think of any other issues.

Thank you

John & Ann Kemp
