About owner/property manager
I am an Anglo-American living in Milan where i own Maka, a corporate language training, and translation agency. We bought our house by the lake so we could get away from the cement and daily grind and we love going there to unwind, hike, eat, drink, swim, relax and have a good laugh. We also love to travel at any chance we get so put our house up for rent whenever we are away as a house that is lived in is a happier home.
owner/property manager purchased this House in 2007
Why owner/property manager chose Tremezzina
It took us ages to find the right house, a place that was open and welcoming, cosy but spacious, and where we were sure to get lots of green, grass, calm, and the fresh air that we needed while still getting the amenities that we are used to like restaurants, bars, shops, and other human beings. When we walked up the garden we immediately liked the clean feel of the white house, then we turned around and got the mountains and a quirky little set of buildings on a hill that leads to the old town of Tremezzo voted one of the prettiest villages in Italy. Steps from the lake but away from the noise of the main road that runs along it, we found it just right!
What makes this House unique
I like comfy beds and soft towels and sheets while my husband loves a good television and cooking so you can curl up and read or eat and watch netflix, but my favorite part is the garden where you can sit in the different areas depending on your mood and where the sun is in the sky or listening to the little stream that runs down from the mountains to the lake in season. I love that in less than 10 minutes i can have a coffee at the park on the waterfront or pick up milk or medicine or a decent lasagna or the boat or bus down to Como or over to Bellagio or go for a swim.

We liked this house, garden and the neighborhood very much!
The house was perfect for us. The house is attached to two other houses and have a nice private garden with a lawn and possibility to relax on your own.
We are a family with two children, 5 and 1 year old and stayed for 10 nights in the second half of april.
The house was perfect for our needs, with two large bedrooms with comfortable double beds upstairs and a bathroom.
Downstairs is the kitchen (with all things we needed) and a social area. Also a second bathroom on first floor. Our children loved all the toys (both indoor and outdoor) they could borrow during our stay.
The house was clean and towels and linnen were very fresh, hotel standard.
5-10 minutes walk down to Lake Como. Tremezzo is a nice area with good boat communication to Bellagio and the other side of the lake. Also close to Menaggio (with car).
So early in the season we appreciated the afternoon sun in the garden. The garden is quite protected from wind which made it warm and comfortable when it was windy down at the lake.
The neighborhood was nice and it felt like living next to locals, not as much tourist as down around the lake. Parking inside gates close to the house.
The host, Kate, was very friendly and helpful with everything: check in info beforehand, a binder with all necessary information about the house, restaurants, hikes etc. She was also easy to get in contact with questions.
We can very much recommend the house to guests and families that want to combine close access to what Lake Como has to offer and nice relaxing in the garden.
Thanks for your positive review, it makes me happy that your family appreciated our place and the area, and you pointed out some of the things we love about it ourselves!
Tremezzo is located at the perfect halfway point and across from the famous Bellagio on Lake Como. Convenient for visiting the whole lake via boat, car, bus and even on foot. It is one of the few towns around the lake that has sidewalks and all amenities but still keeps the charm of a small italian village. The Botanical Villa Carlotta and 007's Villa Balbianello are on the doorstep. A little jazz festival is on in the summer, cinema in the parks, swimming, kayaking, boating, and windsurfing for the adventurous, and fireworks accompany any of the myriad of local summer celebrations whereas classical concerts, walks, hiking, cycling, skiing, and sightseeing can be had all year round.
