    Beautiful Hotel

    by

    Hotel La Villa is set at the back of the resort on elevated land that allows beautiful views over the lake and mountains. The joy of the hotel is that there are easy pedestrian walkways down to the lake.

    Franco and his family keep the hotel in a spotless condition and the breakfast is self service and very good.

    The hotel also has an outside pool and patio where they serve meals during fine weather

    Unique Quality: It is right by the bus stop from Colico in case you are an independent traveller and arrive by train, which is on the other side of the lake. The bus travels from the rail station right around the lake and stops close to the hotel.

    Fantastic walks up into the mountains behind the hotel

    Directions: At the back of the resort in elevated position

Travel Tips for Gravedona

Alto Lario - a new destination?

by Paolomusc

"The top of the lake"

If you have ever been to Lake Como in Italy, you will know that it is the deepest and longest lake in Europe, and you may well have stayed in Menaggio, Bellagio, Tremezzo or Cadenabbia, but you may not know that just a little further up the lake is Gravedona.

Gravedona is a small town perched on the edge of the lake with tiny alleyways and houses that tumble down to the lake. It was once the most important town in the upper lake (Alto Lario) but today is a pleasant, non-touristy place to visit.

Just down the road is Dongo, where they caught Mussolini after WW2 trying to escape with his girlfriend and his money. He was held overnight in the small mounatin village of Germasino, which is above Dongo, and then transfered down to Dongo in the morning. Before the authorities could get up from Milan to take him, the partisans gave him a quick trial and then shot him and his girlfriend and hung them upside down from the lamposts - gruesome or interesting? Perhaps more interesting is the restaurant at Hotel Dongo which is frequented by George Clooney although he has sold his house on the lake now, so might not go there so often now.

North of Gravedona is Domaso, the main watersports town for the lake. There are lots of hotels in the resort and its easy to get to and easy to get from there to anywhere else on the lake. Its a lot more reasonably priced than the middle lake too.

"Unusual Trees!"

The trees along the lakeside are covered with leaves in the hot summer, providing welcome shade from the heat

"Rooms with a view"

The view from Hotel La Villa in Gravedona is fabulous
