This newly restored luxury villa has been on the banks of Lake Como since the 16th century and has been offering five-star service in an unparalleled setting since the 1800s. Bring up to twelve family members or friends to take in the dramatic views and fresh lake breezes, or use the property’s garden to host an anniversary celebration or intimate destination wedding.
Your stay at Villa Garrovo includes the use of the amenities at Villa d’Este and its sporting club, from the tennis courts and putting green to the swimming pools, sauna and hammam. Start each day with an in-villa continental breakfast or a buffet at the hotel’s restaurant, borrow bicycles to explore the area on two wheels or simply take in the Lombardy air from the sitting and dining areas on the villa’s terraces, courtyard and gardens.
Built in 1833, the villa was recently renovated and now boasts both original architectural features and modern touches such as a projection system and security cameras. The gracious living areas face the lake and feature beautiful paneling, built-in cabinets, polished terrazzo floors and painted wall treatments. Tufted sofas and chairs create inviting sitting areas around the mirrored fireplace, while the dining room takes Asian inspiration for its Chippendale-style dining chairs. Though guests are welcome at the hotel’s restaurants and bar, this vacation rental does have its own fully equipped kitchen.
Each of the six bedrooms at Villa Garrovo has an en-suite bathroom. There are two with queen beds, including a stunning, honeymoon-worthy master suite that opens to a private balcony, one room with a double bed and three bedrooms with two twin beds. Floor-length drapes, patterned carpets, floral-print bedding and antique furnishings give the bedrooms an air of both history and comfort.
Named one of the best hotels in the world for its breathtaking location, Renaissance gardens and opulent decor, Villa d’Este is a holiday destination in itself. But if you have time, it’s worth making the short walk to the restaurants and shops in Cernobbio or the short drive to the city of Como for its churches and museums. Bellagio, just over 21 miles away, is easily reached for a day trip to take in its historic villas and views, and Milan is about an hour’s drive from Villa Garrovo.
