What an amazingly photogenic location for a photo shoot! During a recent stay at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo there was a crew of fashionistas, photographers, lighting technicians, and others busy staging a fashion shoot for a Russian magazine. It was quite exciting to see, although I was very nonchalant about it – not wanting to look too interested. However, it did open my eyes to the colours and authentic details – large and small – that the location has to offer. If you are a professional photographer, why wouldn’t you go for the real thing, rather than a set in a studio somewhere? Imagine! In the salon (above) they have framed vintage Hermes scarves on the walls, brightly coloured velvet-upholstered couches and armchairs, plus antique artifacts placed strategically around the room. Wow! How could you ever create something like that in a studio?
I have since Googled for magazines featuring the Grand Hotel Tremezzo in case I have missed out on anything during my visits. Actually, it seems there are three notable experiences that have escaped me: the romantic couples spa in the Private T Suite, a tour on the restored vintage Venetian motor launch ‘Ruy’ (maybe next time I visit), and a wedding at the hotel (maybe next time?).
Take a look at the magazine links below. They may help you to plan your visit and to make the most of your holiday.
