Grand Hotel Tremezzo is rich in history, elegantly old-school and set right on Lake Como.

The hotel has beautiful rooms overlooking the lake, locally inspired restaurants and an outstanding spa.

In the town of Vejer de la Frontera near Cádiz, Casa La Siesta is romance personified - built brick-by-brick by two lovers.
