“Gravedona....great choice...La Villa”
Reviewed 20 September 2008

Stayed here on the way to Bellagio...
the hotel is really super...large size rooms
nice beds with downy type comforters...
very nice all marble tile bathrooms
fantastic breakfast...they win on their croissants
and breakfast room is a glassed sun room
be sure to try and get a room with lakeview...not a bad walk
down some steps to the lakeside promenade
where Ca De Matt is a very good restaurant...
its a few streets down on the promenade ,believe
its Via Castello...its a short walk, just ask...its in an
ancient building...very nice food...
there is also a very good pizzeria a few streets the other way
which has an amazing indoor and outdoor dining area .
Being in the alps is a nice change...there is also
nice walks with alp views all around...the views
in Gravedona on this promenade are really the
best of Lake Como...without the crowds.
We arranged a taxi to the Lanterna Verde
which is an alpine restaurant which has amazing
views and food...this was a hilite of the trip as the drive
in the alps is wonderful...it is about an hour drive and is well
known.

On the recommendation of this website we booked the hotel for a five night break on a half board basis. The hotel was very clean and the food wasexcellent. The views from the window were wonderful. Gravedona is a little out of the way from the hub twns of Bellagio, Menaggio etc. but it is a nice cruise down the lake to get to them. On the plus side it was not nearly so touristy especially in September when we went. We got a great HB deal with wine and water included for 140 Euro per night for two people.

To conclude, if you want a relaxing stay in a very clean, above average 3 star hotel at a very good price, then you can't beat this hotel.

Firstly note Hotel La Villa is in Gravedona, not Menaggio as listed in other reviews.

Was a little cautious booking this hotel with so few reviews, no candid photos and lack of affilliation with web booking agencies. However concerns vanished soon after arrival. Having requested a balcony/lake view we were allocated room 107, which as two balconies. One overlooking the pool / lake in one direction and the other overlooking the lake to the north east.

Three rooms on the 1st floor have a shared balcony terrace subdivided by some shrubbery in plant pots.

The room was spacious and clean though lack of air conditioning could be an issue on very hot nights. Fortunately the weather was on the bearable side of warm when we visited.

A well stocked (if slightly over priced) minibar is available and TV offers only CNN as the english language channel.

The en-suite has a shower only - no bath.

Hotel information and menus are in Italian and German only, perhaps a reflection on the proximity to the Swiss border. Mr Mallone does however speak good English if required..

Gravedona is one of very few villages on the west side of the Lake that doesn't have the main road running through its heart. Although the hotel is located on the lake side of the main road ( unlike many others) the noise is not overly obtrusive.

The small unheated pool is clean and well maintained.

Driving though many of the villages on the west side and seeing some of the other hotels we considered via TripAdvisor, I can recommend Hotel La Villa for its location if nothing else.

A short 2 min stroll down the hill and you are at the waterfront which has a small supermarket, a couple of fashion boutiques, a fishing tackle/toy shop, photo processing shop, 4-5 cafe bars, two estate agents and 3 good restaurants. Other shops are about 10 mins walk if you are prepared to brave the short sections of the (narrow in places) main road with no pavement.

There is not much else in the village so a car is essential if you want to visit elsewhere. The lake ferry service stops at Gravedona and will take you to Como or Lecco in about 1hr45mins for about €9 single.


To sum up, if you want a quiet holiday, waking up to stunning lake views in a clean, no frills hotel then this may be worth considering.

This family run hotel in Gravedona, Lake Como, Italy was wonderful. Clean, beautiful views from most rooms of the lake and mountains and very friendly and helpful owners. I would have to say it was the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed at. The breakfast was delicious and the owners were very helpful. One night we dined at the hotel in the evening and the meal was beautiful.

Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and for only a 3 star it was unbelievable.

This is a wonderful hotel in a spectacular setting high above the town with fantasic views of the lake in one direction and the mountains in the other. Every room has a view that is worth seeing. Some have balconies too. There is a pool and a super restaurant with a buffet breakfast and superb evening meals.

Franco the owner and his family are so welcoming and always on hand but never pushy or interferring. Its just a short, lovely walk down to the lakeside using one of three directions so you wont get bored. There is a market in the town the first (or second?) wednesday of every month. Restaurants and fantastic ice cream right on the front near the lake. Boats to everywhere and FREE concerts in season at the Palazzio Gallio.

The is a super choice as its reasonable and not a touristy resort. Fabulous value for money.

  • Liked — Spotlessly clean and efficient
  • Disliked — Couldn't stay longer
  • Tips/Secrets — Yes. The food is superb at evening meals too, but if there for a while, also try the Ca De Mat just off the lakeside promenade as its excellent. Do try the FREE conersts at the Palazio! and taste the home made ice cream along the lakeside.

After touring around Lake Como and looking for an evening lodging, we happened upon a wonderful hotel in Gravedona, Hotel La Villa. It was a nice walk to the waterfront, clean spacious rooms, exquisite marble, amazing mountain views, and a great restaurant. Definately the best bargain of the trip at less than 90euros a double with breakfast.
