Hotel Villa D’Este
Perhaps one of the world’s most established luxury hotels. Villa d’Este has historically been a playground to royals, sultans and the upper classes. It has evolved into an opulent, luxurious getaway, and is a fairytale wedding venue.
Well known for its exquisite gardens which provide an unparalleled backdrop for wedding photography & videography. The interior decor is continuously renovated but still retains the all important old-world charm. Villa D’Este offers 152 rooms, each slightly different but equally elegant. They are furnished with antiques and vintage artefacts that take you back to the belle époque. Terraces, large windows, and stone balconies highlight awe-inspiring lake vistas. For hotel guests, relaxation can be had in the well appointed spa, wellness and fitness centres. Golf lovers have the choice of not one, but two world class courses. If Golf is your not your thing, there are multiple on-site tennis courts. Villa D’Este has actually become a destination in itself, and guests are guaranteed exquisite cuisine and impeccable five star service.

Villa d'Este has long been home to international events and summits of all sizes. The privacy and exclusivity of the property draw back its clients year after year.
The Villa is the prefect location to host your guests during their stay in Lake Como, with its convenient location to the city of Como and good transport connections to Milan. In addition to the hotel rooms, there are also private villas as part of the estate that are available to rent for more privacy during your stay.
The Mosaic garden, the gem of the Villa D'Este is the most perfect setting for a wedding ceremony. With the acres of gardens and mountains as the backdrop and the location next to the lake, there really is no better place.
The botanical gardens that surround the hotel are full of Baroque features waiting to be discovered.
There is a second suggested ceremony location at the hotel which is on a secluded lakeside terrace tucked away in the gardens. Which is more secluded and understated but still beautiful.
Following a ceremony in the mosaic garden guests can enjoy cocktails and canapés on the lake front terrace. Villa D'Este's own catering is to the high standard that you would expect in any five star hotel.
Receptions at the Villa D'Este are held in the grand banquet room Sala Impero, which can host up to 200 guests seated for a reception, and 400 for a cocktail.
The decorative walls and crystal chandeliers make an impressive backdrop to your reception. Following dinner, you can continue to party in the hotel's private nightclub!
