Undisputedly one of Europe's finest and most legendary 5* luxury hotels; Villa D'Este is a magnificent choice for a luxury Lake Como wedding!
The 16th century villa is a former princely residence built in 1568 as the summer residence of Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio. It is surrounded by an incredible 25 acre park and overlooks one of Italy's most romantic lakes - Lake Como. The hotel used to be the preferred escape of Europe's aristocrats including an Empress and an English Queen.
The renaissance gardens are spectacular with 500 year old trees and a 16th century Nympheum with dazzling mosaics. Strolling through the park you will admire the ancient statuary, the flowering azaleas, camellias, rhododendrons, hydrangeas, roses and jasmine bushes.
The options for your Lake Como wedding ceremony receptions are many. The luxury 5* villa is so much more than a hotel; it is a place to experience the splendour of a bygone area combined with every modern comfort. Once you step through the revolving doors you will enter another world and be enveloped by the warmth of the staff that will make you feel at home.
There are two very exclusive private villas on the property surrounded by a lush park which can be rented. Guests staying in the villas enjoy the same access to all services and comforts of the hotel while enjoying privacy and exclusivity that only a private villa can offer.
