THE ROYAL CHARM OF HISTORY

Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio for over a century has been one of the hotels loved by the Sovereigns and the nobility of the whole world. To what does it owe its charm?

Surely to the beauty of the facility and to the lake landscape, where the deep blue waters meet the bright green mountains that crown Lake Como.  And then to the excellent service, attentive to every detail, the comfort of all rooms, the varied wine and food proposals. But there's more.

 

It is in fact the royal rustle of history that makes unique the hallways, the living rooms, the rooms in which stayed Sir Winston Churchill, Roosevelt, the Rothschilds, JF Kennedy, and brilliant Hollywood stars like Clark Gable, Robert Mitchum, Al Pacino.

 

A ROMANTIC TIME TRAVEL

There is also a hint of art and culture that permeates every corner of the building and airily expands in its lush Italian gardens, combined with the ancient wisdom on the staff of the Mediterranean and subtropical essences.

It is an invitation to dream and be carried back in time: just observe and be permeated by the beauty of the whole to run with the imagination back to year 1850, when a noble Milanese family commissioned the construction of a luxury vacation villa in front of Lake Como.

A neoclassical mansion, which reflected the good taste and elegance of the rich nobility of the time: the walls and vaults were decorated with frescoes and paintings depicting mythological scenes, with golden frames, garlands, small temples, little angels and flamingos.

The coffered ceilings were painted with floral motifs in a play of gray and pink, while the splendid French-style tapestries were combined with antique Persian rugs.

In 1872 the villa was sold and became the core of  Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, opened in 1873. Since then, the charm of that polished elegance has never ceased to seduce the most refined tourists from all over the world. And today it still pulsates in the Empire, Neoclassical and Liberty style furniture,  in the Murano crystal chandeliers and among the marble staircases, the stucco columns, the wonderful trompe l'oeil.

The "salle à manger" is itself a true monument of art: it is a Royal Hall, illuminated at night by bronze and crystal chandeliers, reflecting the splendor of their lights in large mirrors.
