A GARDEN ON THE LAKE 

Timeless luxury, understated elegance, true charm, simple words we use to describe the splendour and the magic of this truly special place. Set on the banks of one of the most romantic lakes in the world and just north of Milan, the villa was built in 1568 as the summer residence of Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio. The property is made up of 25 acres of gardens, whose statues and landscape have been photographed for centuries. The favourite playground of an Empress, an English queen, and aristocrats, it was transformed into a luxury hotel in 1873. Continuously renovated and updated, without sacrificing any of its old-world charm, The villa today offers 152 rooms, all different in decor but linked by the superior standards of hospitality that you expect from one of Europe's truly legendary resorts.

 

The 152 rooms are equipped with every comfort and are elegantly furnished with antiques, paintings, and vintage prints, silks, brocades, velvets of rare preciousness and luxurious marble bathrooms. Terraces, balconies and large windows take in the magnificent views of Lake Como.   Add to this the excellent restaurants and bars, the spa, beauty and fitness, sauna and Turkish bath, the floating pool….. and you have achieved perfection.  Reference 590.
