For the past 100 years or more, the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni has been one of the most well-known and prestigious hotels in the world. Set in the splendid surroundings of Lake Como, where the blue waters meet the green mountains which soar above the lake, the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni enjoys a breathtaking position on the promontory which juts halfway out into the lake, separating the two branches. Villa Serbelloni is about being a secret retreat and romantic escape on Italy’s loveliest lake, lakeside in the cutest resort. Like Lake Como itself, this grande-dame has had the sense to stop the clock at it’s peak moment of perfection.
Location doesn't get any better than this. The hotel is found on the lakefront in the heart of Bellagio, set in beautiful Italian-style gardens with Mediterranean and subtropical plants. It's a peaceful haven a stone's throw away from the hubbub of Bellagio's boutiques and restaurants. The luxurious vegetation of its Italian-style gardens, abounding in Mediterranean and subtropical plants, flourishes in the pleasant microclimate around the lake: sunshine almost all year round, accompanied by mild temperatures in every season.
The rooms and suites are spacious and elegant, with elaborate fittings, Murano chandeliers and beautiful antiques including inlaid wooden furniture and important works of art. High ceilings, with some higher category rooms adorned with beautiful frescoes, lend a dramatic elegant look.
