Hotel Bazzoni et du Lac
Travel Blogs from Tremezzo
... night we had a few drinks at a small little bar and watched the Roma-Bologna, then went back to the terrace for some wine which was nice. I fell in love with Como because of it's location and beautiful nature that surrounded it, so I am going to rank it #2 on the list of cities I saw on this trip. The next morning (Sunday) we took a bus to Vals. Read my next post to hear about my time at Peter Zumthor's Thermal baths!
... with only a small potty interruption for D, after which he went straight back to bed.
We miraculously woke, refreshed around 830am, and we woke the kids, still sleeping soundly, at 10am for the day.
After all the failure of our time-shift preparation and the MEME, something beautiful came out of it. Sometimes I guess, we can get them so messed up about the time change that they just need to hit the reset button. I guess you could call that a method.
... and the Swiss Apls across the skyline.. breathtaking! We came back down and had lunch in a restaurant by the Lake. Delicious Italian pasta, nothing like it! :-) We then went on a ferry around the lake and enjoyed seeing it from a different point of view. We came back to Como and walked out on the jetty and then made our way back home to pack. We got dinner from a little pizzeria on our road which was amazing!
... in the evening and walked around the town and then down to the Lake. We went to the Christmas markets at the lakeside and then walked through the shopping district. We found a little pizzeria and decided to have dinner there. We watched our pizzas being made from scratch and then cooked in their pizza oven - they tasted amazing, especially with a glass of Italian red wine! ...
... 1,300 feet deep, it is one of the deepest lakes in Europe, and the bottom of the lake is more than 660' below sea-level. This seems odd when you are surrounded by the picturesque Swiss Alps. We stayed at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo Palace which is a a beautiful hotel next door to Villa Carlotta. The lake area has been a popular retreat for aristocrats and wealthy people since Roman times, It has many villas ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Bazzoni et du Lac Tremezzo
We stayed at the Hotel Bazzoni on a Half Board basis for 1 week. From the outside it doesn't look like one of the prettiest hotels in the world, but you get what you pay for.
The food was served buffet style for both breakfast and dinner. The dining room overlooks the lake, so you have the chance to take in everything from snow-capped mountains, traditional villas and the lush green woods which surround the lake. As for the food, there wasn't much variation for breakfast (sausage, scrambled egg, bacon, breads, meat, cheese etc), but dinner and dessert was a real treat, they do an especially nice tiramisu. The staff were friendly, but a little too eager to whip the plate out from under you.
We had a room which over looked the lake, which was quite frankly a mistake. Why? Italian drivers seem to go at 100km at night time making it hard to sleep. We also had problems with the internal phone, which our next door neighbours kept ringing, it was easy to figure out who it was as well because the walls don't do much inhibit sound.
I would say that all in all that it's an ok hotel. We were just unlucky with our neighbours, and if anything it has taught me find out exactly where the nearest road is!
