V4.1 January, 2012 A Privileged Landscape Surrounded by quaint villages and magnificent forests and backed by the snowcapped Alps, Lake Como's privileged landscape has been a mecca for the rich and famous since Roman times. The lake has inspired poets, novelists and composers, and has been a vacation home to George Clooney, Madonna and other members of the uber-famous who own or rent luxurious lakeside villas. Celebrities can be spotted gliding up and down the waters on lake steamers and frequenting the many fine shops and restaurants in the lakeside towns.
Featured Destination Lake Como, Italy
Renowned for its mild climate, hilly landscape and palatial villas, Lake Como is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful lakes in Italy. Situated in the northern Italian Lakes District, the lake lies between Milan and the border of Switzerland. The delicate landscape that surrounds Lake Como is divided by high hills from Switzerland's Lake Lugano. The main city of Como offers historical landmarks and many artistic and cultural gems, and is world famous for its vast selection of magnificent fine silks manufactured in the area.
Situated on the shores of magnificent Lake Como, Villa d'Este is a study in palatial architectural splendor. Surrounded by 10 acres of meticulously manicured parks and gardens, Villa d'Este sits like a crown jewel amidst fountains, topiary, azaleas and other flowering delights. Each of the 152 guest rooms are slightly different and features period furnishings, oil paintings, silk draperies and walk-in closets. While historical elements have remained intact, Villa d'Este offers the modern amenities 21st-century travelers expect.
