Cadenabbia Holidays

Stretching across the west lake promenade

In a sheltered lakeside position on the western shores of Lake Como, Cadenabbia is a super spot for a lakes and mountain holiday - with Mount Crocione behind you, you can look across the lake for wonderful views of the headland village of Bellagio and the Dolomite mountain range beyond. It has been a popular health resort with the British since Victorian times – indeed Queen Victoria herself chose to holiday in Cadenabbia and one of the country’s first Anglican churches was built here in 1891. Other notable heads of state who have sojourned here including Nicholas II, Kaiser Guglielmo II and Pope Pio XI; Mary Shelley wrote about Cadenabbia as long ago as 1844, and a few years later Guiseppe Verdi composed Traviata in the peace and quiet of Villa Ricordo (Villa Margherita). Between the 17th and 19th centuries many other villas were built here and nearby including Villa Collina, Villa Giuseppina and Villa Norella.

Activity Information

Things to do in Cadenabbia

With glorious lakes and mountain scenery around you it’s tempting to laze around and do very little, but if you feel energetic and fancy exploring there is a delightful (if steep) walk up to the 16th century church of San Martino. There is nearby Griante to explore, the famous Villa Carlotta botanical gardens are on the way to nearby Tremezzo and, of course, everyone on a holiday to Lake Como is bound to take a boat trip - or three!

Walking

The Green Way | Easy | Approx 4 hrs (return by bus) |
This walk takes you through some of the most charming villages on Lake Como; Sala Comacina, Ossuccio, Lenno, Mezzegra, Tremezzo and Cadenabbia before arriving at the village of Griante. A great opportunity to get to know the area around Tremezzo and Cadenabbia before exploring further.

RESORT COMBINATIONS

Combine your stay on Lake Como with our mountain resort of Champoluc, set in the heart of the Italian Monte Rosa Mountains.

You can combine Cadenabbia with any resort on Lake Maggiore. Fly to Bergamo and combine Cadenabbia with Lake Iseo, or with some resorts on Lake Garda such as Gardone Riviera.
