Villa D’Este

Wedding in Lake Como

Villa d’Este is an ancient residence chosen in the past by princesses, sultans and tsars. From the end of the 1800, it is a 5-star experience to live in Cernobbio, on Lake Como.

This elegant 16th-century resort is the ideal venue for a holiday among luxury, relaxation and privacy, as well as for a refined destination wedding surrounded by one of the most romantic lakes in the world.

Villa d’Este can accommodate over 300 guests among its 4 private villas and the 152 rooms and suites. The different categories rooms are divided between Edificio del Cardinale and Padiglione della Regina. All the accommodations are finely furnished with antique silks, velvets and marbles and overlook the lake or the park.
