Belle Epoque Villa


A location for brides dreaming of a VERY special Italian wedding event that exudes refinement and elegance...

Possibly the finest luxury 5* villa and palace hotel on Lake Maggiore and certainly one of our favorite venues for a spectacular Italy Lakes wedding reception and honeymoon.  The Villa interiors, gardens and location are simply magnificent for an unforgettable event.  It is no wonder that famous names have sought solace here such as : Liz Taylor and Richard Burton.

The Villa & Palazzo overlooks the enchanting Borromeo Gulf, with stupendous gardens and terraces - perfect for a wedding reception and aperitifs.  Inside the villa's natural park, you can enjoy romantic walks surrounded by majestic trees, gorgeous flowering azaleas and rhododendrons which create a riot of intense colors.  The interiors, completely renovated in 2000 by the owners, drip with sumptuousness. Marble columns, aubusson tapestries, and walls decorated with luxurious fabrics create an atmosphere of opulence.  Light and the incredible views filter in from the huge bay windows allowing you to drink in the panorama, wherever you are.

The dining room is our favorite hall. You must see it to truly appreciate what a remarkable room it is and how incredible the views are. The Isola Bella, the Isola Pescatori and Isola Madre, romantic and amazing places, are directly in front of the Villa creating a marvelous panorama for you and your guests to enjoy while sipping on champagne.

The rooms are regal, no expense has been spared for guests' comfort with lavish bathrooms.  But the piece de resistance of this property is without a doubt the SPA. In our travels we get to see quite a few luxury spas but we think this is the ULTIMATE SPA; "the" place for a bride and wedding party to be pampered before their big day!  The design and golden mosaics are one of a kind.
