Villa D Este5 stars

Via Regina 40, 22012 Cernobbio - Lake Como, Show map

Score from Portofino World ®  


Photo Villa D Este Experience the splendor, the grandeur, the intrigue and the magic of Villa d'Este- an opulent hotel overlooking glorious Lake Como.

Hailed as one of the best hotels in the world by Travel & Leisure, Condé Nast Traveler and Forbes Traveler, this famous resort destination has been widely praised for its beautiful gardens, exquisite cuisine, gala celebrations, impeccable décor and extraordinary hospitality.

Sitting on the banks of one of the most romantic lakes in the world and just north of Milan, Villa d'Este was built in 1568 as the summer residence of Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio. The property comprises 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, Villa d'Este 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.

Set on the shores of Lake Como, the Hotel is located in one of the most important crossroads between Italy and Northern Europe. 60 minutes from Milan, 50 minutes from/to Fiera Milano Rho.

What our Guests say:
Villa D"Este in Cernobbio, a small amazing place over the Lake Como, is truly unbelievable. The suite are all different with decoration, sofa, antique carpets and curtains. The service is the top, the grounds, and the setting are ideal for a charming and relaxing experience in north of Milano, Italy. ♥ This is one of the best places I have ever been. Very incredible. If you have a plan to go there, I suggest to ask for one suite with a balcony facing the lake of Como in order to enjoy the amazing views.

History & Art: Villa d'Este, a former 16th century princely residence, surrounded by a 25 acre park, is more than just a hotel. The luxury and magnificence of a bygone era is maintained intact. We simply added all the up-to-date amenities. Upon emerging from the revolving doors you feel the cares of the modern world slip away and the warm greetings of the staff make you feel at home.

The guestrooms, the corridors, the Hall and the public rooms are decorated with antique furnishing and art works which give the hotel a palatial atmosphere. On the ground floor visit the Colonne Room with its biblical paintings. In the Flora Room the statue of Eros and Psyche from the School of Antonio Canova and the 16th century Adam and Eve Carrara marble statues by Marco Antonio Prestinari in the Canova Bar. The Napoleone Room named after the Emperor who planned to visit but never showed up.

In this location you can rent one of our Dream Cars.
