Description


Set amidst twenty-five acres of exquisite, centuries-old Renaissance gardens and wooded parkland, just a few minutes walk from the village of Cernobbio, the magnificent Villa d'Este, a member of 'The Leading Hotels of the World', boasts a breathtaking setting alongside the mountain-backed Lake Como in northern Italy. Originally a grand 16th century private palazzo, it remains home to a plethora of grand salons, tapestried halls and ceremonial marble staircases. In the baronial guest bedrooms and suites, and in the more intimate trompe l'oeil Queen's Pavilion, antique furniture, fine artwork and striking statues, Como silk furnishings and grand marble bathrooms underscore the magnificent luxury of a bygone era. In addition, there's a selection of refined restaurants and bars, a wellness and beauty centre replete with spa treatment rooms, a sauna, turkish bath, indoor swimming pool and fitness facilities, along with tennis and squash courts, jogging trails, an indoor golf simulator and a putting green. On the lake, there are opportunities for windsurfing, canoeing, water-skiing and sailing, while the Concierge would be delighted to arrange excursions to nearby museums and golf courses - even scenic plane rides across the magnificent lake.
