Enjoy Italy unlike any other way you ever imagined, tucked away in a hidden corner in a place favoured by none other than Mr George Clooney (keep it together ladies). Stay in the Clarion Collection Hotel Griso Lecco overlooking the spectacular Italian Lake Como. With this special offer from travelbird.co.uk this dream getaway can be yours including breakfast and a welcome drink at the hotel.
Situated in Northern Italy, the hotel view is breathtaking and with an 87% rating and a Certificate of Excellence it ticks all the right boxes. With tall mountains and traditional cobbled villages, you will be charmed by this unique culture. It is no surprise that this is a Hollywood hideaway as in the close-by Villa Balbianello, scenes from Casino Royale and Star Wars Episode II were shot. Steeped in history, the villa is the perfect place for a romantic stroll however it is only open to visitors on Tuesdays and at the weekends by guided tour.
Villa Carlotta offers beautiful botanic gardens splashed with life and colour while the house is full of paintings, sculptures and period furniture. The villa was given to a Prussian princess in 1847 as a wedding present from her mother. What a nice present!
Abbazia di Piona is also worth a visit. A Cistercian abbey situated with beautiful views of the lake and snow capped moutains, it dates as far back as the 7th century. there is so much more to do and see in the area; just walking around and taking in the vast beauty of it will pass a few hours.
Some recommended restaurants are; Gatto Nero boasting spectacular views of the lake and delicious local foods, Natta Cafe is a funky cafe serving light food, wine and cocktails and Osteria del Gallo is a tavern decorated with wine and goodies-what more could you ask for.
