Villa Giardino - Apartamento Pesca.

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 gorgeous ground floor apartment with access directly onto a lovely shaded terrace with stone table and benches, and “Pesca” - on the first floor with beautiful 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 Pesca

Up a short flight of stone stairs and onto the large side balcony with its lake views you reach the door of Pesca. 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 traditional Lombardy feel with sofa, two reading chairs, day furniture and TV. The interior is simple, traditional and 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 a country feel and boasts ample storage and plenty of space to cook - it has everything you need. The dining area is cosy and is ideal for family eating with its built-in seating area.

The master bedroom is a lovely room that is full of country character. It has white washed walls, wood floors and a large lake 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 feel. It has twin beds that can be used as a double or two singles.

The second bedroom is a gorgeous room too. It has white washed walls, wood floors and a large lake facing window that also retains the original glass and shutter, framed with lace curtains. It has a single bed, a comfortable pull out bed, built- in storage and a wardrobe. The room sleeps either one or two people.

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 Pesca - sleeping up to four people. Living room, kitchen/diner, one double bedroom, one twin bedroom with a single bed and pull out bed, one bathroom with bath, side balcony 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.

hi karen, just wanted to let you know that our stay, albeit for just 4 days, was wonderful at Villa Giardino Pesca. The house and gardens were just gorgeous and so Italian. We were so pleased. It was really nice to have the lake just a few minutes away and the park was lovely. We have never done an apartment rental before and will definately be back in th summer for a longer holiday.

Kindest regards


hi Dave

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


We loved Lake Como and had a really good week .

We had a very enjoyable holiday and thought the accommodation was as described in the brochure. If we visit Como in the future we would happily use Bella Como again

A couple of points:-
It would seem relatively easy to slightly widen the internal parking area allowing 2 vehicles to park within the property as there was a comment from a local regarding blocking the lane with a parked vehicle as small vehicle came up the pedestrian path and turns into the lane.

The info shops is fairly basic (maybe a bit too lakewide to suit every property) and could be improved, such as mentioning excellent food deli in Mennagio and explaing how to find bakery in Mezzegra

womderful house with magnificent views in tranquil location

Very enjoyable stay and certainly great value.
Only slight problem was finding the appartment after dark when we arrived. The map given us by the hotel was not correct, however the written instructions that you had previously forwarded were correct.

Our first visit to Lake Como and we loved it. The apartment was gorgeous, exactly as described. It had been a lot hotter than we expected and would have loved the option to have fans or mobile air con units as the temperature on a night prevented us all from sleeping more than a couple of hours. Apart from the usual lake front restaurants it would be useful to have some details of other restaurants in the area or other local villages that serve good quality, real italian food as we didnt enjoy the atmosphere of the few on the lake front in Tremezzo. Great service from Bella Como. I'm still not sure how i feel about the hours of hours charge for late arrivals though... Great holiday and would definitely book through yourselves again. Thank you to David for great communication and arranging a later checkout for us.
