For pure Italian opulence in a commanding position on the shores of Lake Como, the Villa D’Este is utterly peerless and entirely worthy of its reputation as one of the finest hotels in the world. Built in the 16th century as the summer residence of a Cardinal, it became the favoured hotel of European royalty since opening it’s doors in 1873, its 152 rooms and suites offering true splendour and graceful living.
Decorated with period furniture, swathed in silks and brocades and featuring oil paintings, each is unique, with many having either a balcony or terrace or marble bathrooms featuring Jacuzzis. For complete seclusion there are even two private villas. With its floating pool, tennis courts and marina there is plenty to amuse while the range of excellent indoor and al fresco bars and restaurants will see that you want for nothing. There are so few places on earth that offer supremely sumptuous living in such a spectacular natural setting that the Villa D’Este could rightfully be called “heavenly.”
