It's a village-garden on Lake Como: let yourself be enchanted by the beauty of the villas and parks, with their colours and perfumes.
Via Regina, 3, Tremezzina (CO)
The union of 10 hamlets in the middle of Lake Como: this is Tremezzina (CO) which took its name from the main village, Tremezzo.
The luxuriant gardens and eighteenth-century residences are outshone by the famous Villa Carlotta, one of the loveliest in the Lario, with masterpieces by Canova and Hayez and a botanical garden with plants from every corner of the world springing off their enchanting perfumes and colours; here you can relax in front of the wonders of human ingenuity and nature.
The palaces, the villas, the spinning mills, the views and the smell of the lake: in the air there is a sweet and Mediterranean feeling and the climate makes the olive trees grow as well as the vines and the lemons on the terraces.
In the eighteenth century, with the arrival of the rich figures of the European bourgeoisie, the "Italian" parks were full of exotic plants: alongside the traditional olive trees are palm trees and azaleas, hydrangeas and camellias from distant lands. This made the lakefront a popular tourist destination that also enchanted Stendhal.
In addition to Tremezzo, there are 4 other interesting small villages in the area, one of which is on the lake (Bolvedro) and others in the hills (Rogaro, Volesio and Balogno).
They are all well preserved with the original cobblestones and beautiful facades of stately homes; here you can search for the quiet away from the frenzy of the Lakefront to admire the simple beauty of the past and having a magnificent view of the lake as in Rogaro.
In short, Tremezzina is a fantastic interpenetration of green, water and stone. With the changing seasons the tones, light, colours of the water and mountains change and you can witness the emotional metamorphoses of nature in parks and gardens: every season is a perfect time to visit, ideally arriving from the lake by boat!
