Villa D'Este

A former 16th century residence of European aristocrats, converted into a resort in 1873, Villa D'Este is more than just a hotel; it is a idea born in the minds of a group of people dedicated to anticipating every wish of their guests. The service and amenities provided are comprehensive and luxurious, and a sojourn at this lakeside villa, set in a magnificent park, is an unforgettable experience. Don't be surprised if you find yourself dining with Hollywood's hottest celebrities.

The rich history of Villa D'Este dates back to the century when some nuns, who took refuge from the civil war in 1442, built a convent in the park-- it is said some of the building's remains are still standing. Cernobbio then was a village populated only by fisherman and woodcutters, until a century later the Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio of Como chose this site for his private residence. The villa was built in 1568 by architect Pellegrino Pellegrini and was considered one of the finest examples of architecture and landscaping. The resort includes three restaurants, a night club, piano bar, sports, boating, pools, spa and massage rooms, golf and a salon.
