One of the best kept secrets of Lake como is the exclusive palazzo, Villa Pliniana, located in a completely tucked away and hidden area so you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, yet on the beautiful Lake Como. This palace looks like a Town and Country Magazine cover.
Built in 1573, the villa has over the years hosted many artists, scientists, and monarchs such as Leonardo da Vinci, Bellini, Napoleon, and Queen Margherita of Savoy, to name just a few.
The property has gorgeous mosaics, stuccos, and artwork inside and the gardens have breathtaking views of the lake. The glorious gardens and vistas make for a truly spectacular and unforgettable event. And those gardens can be home to a reception if we build a structure. You can host up to 200 guests for a sit down dinner and dancing under the stars here! Or you can entertain in the gardens, cocktail-style for up to 500 guests. Indoors events allow for 100 guests for a seated dinner or 180 guests for cocktail-style in two luxurious ballrooms. We suggest using one ballroom for dinner and the other for dancing and dessert buffets and bars.
And for a grand entrance or exit, the villa even offers a private helipad on property!
Under the management of the fabulous Sereno Hotels, the group also owns a nearby hotel on the lake, ideal for housing your wedding guests and transferring them to and from. Because of this, guests get the best of both worlds – the villa has been completely restored to its original old-world splendor and wedding guests get pampered with the fine service of the modern Sereno Hotel staff.
There is a minimum stay of 3 nights during high season but the bonus is we can have music until anytime of morning or night due to the remote location away from any neighbors!
