"Prestige italian ambience of ancient times"
Villa D'Este is the former house of a (semi)royal Este family back in who-knows-when. It was their summer "cottage" but this place is HUGE, laced with drappings of carpets, pictures, goldplated furniture, flower gardens, waterfountains and the most explicit view of Lake Como that you can get! Situated 5 miles from Como, the place is secluded from the public, service is as expected of a 5-star hotel, restaurant is brilliant although VERY expensive, (some) rooms have a lake view and a terrasse view to die for! One of the most beautiful, oldtime school, 5-star service hotels in Europe!
For us, Villa d'Este is a very special place. My wife, my daughter and I connect so many wonderful memories. I still remember the mix of euphoria and exhilaration, when we arrived for the first time some years ago. The glittering lake, the ample classical palace, the refined gardens, the always delightful staff, the illustrious guests - this all lifts your spirits. We were so pleased to see in October that the vast, 500 years old and a little weak plane tree, a living witness of the hotel’s enormous tradition, was obviously recovering after a cure. How comforting that the management does not save any means to preserve the heritage of the place. You might think the Hotel is too formal to relax' Absolutely not, our 9 years old daughter is the biggest fan: junior club, kids from everywhere, tennis lessons, pools, pasta for lunch and dinner... In the evening we meet for an aperitif under the arches of the Villa (even nicer during rain). Overlooking the lake, you lounge on trendy vintage terrace chairs (which you can only find at Villa d’Este), listen to the pianist and you are so happy, there is a place like this.
There is no other place like this in the world. There was a classic feeling about this hotel that made you feel like you took a step back in time. We had the Top Junior Suite which gave us views of the immaculate gardens and lake and it was one of the most incredible rooms we have ever stayed in. The service was top notch and made us feel very special. We plan on returning this summer 2017 and years after that. I highly recommend!
"Great Lake Como property"
I went here with my family in September. The hotel bring on a very old world elegance vibe. We stay in the Queen's building which had a large room and excellent views. I would highly recommend this hotel as a perfect jumping spot to the various towns around the lake.
