It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and romantic Lake wedding locations available. The villa is a complex of buildings and flowering gardens, rich in history, built mainly between 1400 and 1800. Originally the property of the noble Serponti family (1163) it passed into the hands of various other noble European families throughout the centuries.
