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...

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...

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....

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.

Great hotel and grounds. Rooms are well appointed. Service is great! A once in a lifetime experience for most but well worth the effort and expense. It is a step back in time to when manners and dress code were important and when you are having a cocktail or a meal overlooking the beautiful grounds, pool and lake you realise...

Although we visited for only for a lazy lunch we were absolutely enchanted. Too much to praise - from the meticulously maintained property to the awesome food to the fabulous wines to the superbly turned out staff to the perfectly manicured locations - and yet it would not be enough! It was indeed enchanting to experience Villa d'Este first hand...

Sublime hotel, once in a lifetime experience. More than you could ever wish for! Luxurious rooms, scrupulously clean, wonderful turndown service. Food was glorious, breakfast was comprehensive and without fault. Ultra expensive. You get what you pay for and this establishment was exceptional.

Attended a wine symposium at the end of the season at this amazing hotel. I had read about this place before attending and it exceeded my high expectations. Service, room quality, food, location etc. were all first rate. Breakfasts were fantastic. We had banquet meals (260 people plus) every night and the food was the finest for such a large...
