Experience Famiglia Fun with Hilton Lake Como’s New Multi-Generational Escapes
June 2022…// Hilton Lake Como promises fun for all the famiglia this Summer and beyond with a range of multi-generational new offerings to enjoy both on and off the lake. From new interconnecting rooms and children’s menus to family-feasts, pram- and paw-friendly strolls and activities, there’s something to delight all ages (and breeds!) at the luxurious lakeside property.
Whether families wish to explore Italy’s iconic Lake Como and its local villages by foot, boat or bike, stay active as a family with a spot of tennis or wakeboarding or enjoy a classic Italian feast, Hilton Lake Como is fully equipped to cater to their every need.
The Full Famiglia Experience
Located a few minutes away from the city centre and shopping area, Hilton Lake Como is ideally situated nearby local attractions whilst offering jaw-dropping views of Lake Como, in an oasis of calm. Little ones are taken care of from the moment they check in, with a special Lake Como kids’ passport, colouring book, mocktail voucher and bath time amenities to enjoy during their stay and complimentary breakfast for under-12s each day.
Families are spoiled for choice when it comes to local activities. Hiking, windsurfing, wakeboarding, sailing, and motorised water sports are all available to enjoy on the lake, whilst private, multi-generational tennis and golf sessions can also be arranged. For the more mature family members, a selection of pram- and paw-friendly walks including the 20-minute Passeggiata Lino Gelpi into town provide a more gentle way to unwind while spotting the local flora and fauna en route.
For longer strolls, the 10km long Lake Como Greenway provides a leisurely walk suitable for all. The pedestrian-friendly path goes through ancient villages such as Colonno, Sala Comacina, Ossuccio, Lenno, Mezzegra, Temezzo and Griante. Families can see the sites as they hike alongside stunning villas and gardens, Romanesque and Baroque churches and of course, the stunning scenery of Lake Como.
Guests can spend the morning or afternoon at leisure enjoying a two-hour private boat tour on Italy’s famous lake to the scenic Comacina Island. Boasting remarkable panoramic views, lush Mediterranean vegetation, lovely walks, and the picture-perfect picnic spot, Comacina Island is a great day trip for travellers of all ages to explore and enjoy the local area.
Families can now stay fit and cruise around the scenic area with Hilton Lake Como’s new picnic bike tour, which includes a 3-hour guided city tour on hotel bikes. Teenagers will be impressed by Hollywood blockbuster hot spots such as Villa Balbianello, where Star Wars and James Bond’s Casino Royale were filmed. The bike tour also includes a picnic lunch, so guests can refuel with a tasty meal on the go at their chosen picnic spot, which can be personalised to guests’ preferences. Picnic lunches consist of seasonal local dishes and freshly baked breads accompanied by smoothies, fresh juice and fine Italian wines. The skilled chefs at Hilton Lake Como are on hand to please even the fussiest of eaters!
Back at the hotel, a selection of tantalising dishes and drinks for discerning and tiny tastebuds alike grace the new menus at the Terrazza signature restaurant and the more relaxed Pool Bar setting. While little ones refuel with scrumptious spaghetti and pizza, adults can enjoy a range of authentic dishes like parmigiana ravioli with Grana Padano fondue and carnaroli rice with smoked asparagus, complete with wine-parings. A recent partnership with local gelato-makers Gelateria Rossetti provides a delectable and authentic way to cool down after a day on the lake – adults, just add aperitivo.
Thanks to the new ‘Confirmed Connecting Rooms by Hilton’ offering – the first booking experience of its kind by a major hotel company – guests can now confirm their connecting rooms at the time of booking. This ensures grandparents, parents and little ones can room alongside one another while each enjoys the space and privacy they need, taking the stress out of family bookings.
Canines in Como
Guests travelling with a four-legged family member are also welcome. The team at Hilton Lake Como greet their VIP’s (very important pets!) with dog baskets, biscuits and bowls upon check-in so the family pooch can also experience a taste of la dolce vita during their visit to Lake Como.
Formerly a silk factory, Hilton Lake Como is now a new generation hotel with spectacular scenery, traditional charm, and jaw-dropping 360-degree views of the lake from its rooftop pool. There are 170 spacious rooms and suites to choose from, including Family Deluxe King Rooms, which sleep up to 4 and perfectly cater to family travellers alongside the new interconnecting rooms, a pampering spa and a popular rooftop cocktail bar and restaurant.
Nightly rates at Hilton Lake Como begin at 180 Euro per night based on double occupancy with breakfast included.
