Cadenabbia & the locale

The stunning buildings and architecture that line the lake road serve as the perfect backdrop for a relaxing cycle or walk, enabling you to capture all the charm and enchantment of the lake. Sample the local cuisine in Cadenabbia or the neighbouring village of Tremezzo as you watch the world go by.

Take a short stroll to the beautiful Villa Carlotta in the village of Cadenabbia. The most famous villa on the lake, Villa Carlotta has a perfect combination of luxurious interiors and world famous gardens with over 500 species of plants, trees and shrubs.

Hop on the ferry for a trip to Bellagio la perla del lago (the pearl of the lake), considered by many to be the most beautiful town in all of Europe.

Venturing a little further, and just a short drive away, is Menaggio. It's picturesque harbour features mostly 19th century Italian alpine style buildings, all painted in muted tones. Sit in the square and do as the Italians do and watch the girls go by! Although peaceful and relaxing, there is a lot to explore in this classically Italian town. The old and 'new', the shops, restaurants, cafes, public squares and alleyways, the tree shaded lake shore promenades bordered by flowers, and the well-kept villas form a wonderful and serene place to visit.
