Celebrating their 105th Anniversary and Historic Roots
In 1910, Grand Hotel Tremezzo was originally built by Enea Gandola, a gentleman from Bellagio who traveled the world with his wife Maria Orsolini and decided they needed to build a hotel for the emerging international tourism of the time. The hotel opened with a party and what followed until the outbreak of the First World War was great splendor. For over a year during World War I the hotel was requisitioned for use as a military hospital. In the 1930s, Grand Hotel Tremezzo was bought by the Sampietro family and was seen in the spotlight in the 1932 film Grand Hotel where actress Greta Garbo refers to the hotel as a happy, sunny place. It was bought by the Como-based De Santis family in 1975, who still proudly carry forward the Grand Hotel Tremezzo tradition of charm and authentic Italian hospitality.
