The Luxurious Villa D’Este, Italy,Lake Como – A Truly Romantic Gift

 Villa D'este, Lake Como, Italy

Villa D'este,Italy

Set on the banks of one of the most romantic lakes in the world and just north of Milan(40 minutes outside of Milan and just a couple of exits before the Swiss boarder.), 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, the English queen and aristocrats, was transformed into a luxury hotel in 1873.

There are actually two buildings that comprise this world class hotel. The Landscape is picture postcard perfect, the lake, the magnificent old villas, the Alps and the rich lush green landscaping and formal gardens of the hotel. An exciting new addition for families is the opening of two new fully renovated villas for family get- a- ways with all the luxuries of home.
