Historical Palazzo on Lake Como

Situated on the western shore of Lake Como, this estate is an awe-inspiring Italian jewel, an exceptional historical palazzo that once belonged to the famous Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio, who built it at the end of 16th century and used it as his main residence. A century later, it was enlarged and embellished by Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini who used the villa to host a gallant and frivolous society where festivals, banquets and dances followed one another relentlessly. Since then each successive owner only added to the splendour of the villa. Nowadays, the property is the largest private residence on the lake, occupying over 2ha, with extensive sumptuous garden, which was distinguished by the British Society of Garden Designers, outdoor swimming pool, a private pier and a boathouse. Inside, its historic interiors have been filled with finest objets d’art and furniture of past centuries, sourced from Sotheby’s and Christie’s. Spectacular 17th century frescoes painted by the Recchi brothers and Agostino Silva still decorate the walls, untouched by time. With its illustrious past, an unparalleled mix of man-made and natural beauty, this palazzo is one of the most glamorous locations on Lake Como.

The property counts 6 luxurious suites in the main palazzo, each designed individually by the renowned interior decorator Jacques Garcia.

From the breathtaking views overlooking Lake Como and the lavish surroundings to the opulent marble bathrooms, the guests will experience an unparalleled height of style and elegant luxury.

Opulent and dramatic. The property boasts a museum worthy collection of period furniture, antiques and paintings. Crystal chandeliers, glittering gold accents and antique gild-edged mirrors further enhance the beauty of the collection.
