Amore on Lake Como

Romance is a testimony to hope and the eternal. So often we try to express our love for each other––but how gorgeous it is when we can just feel it, maybe not uttering a word.

Lake Como - the destination where romance is about the eternal.

Romance is a testimony to hope and the eternal. So often we try to express our love for each other––but how gorgeous it is when we can just feel it, maybe not uttering a word. Enjoy taking your loved one to this place on Lake Como, one of the world’s fairytale hotspots for amore. Speaking of fairy tales, most of these enchantments turn into pumpkins in the winter months, so be sure to ink your visit during the April to November sweet spot.

Villa La Cassinella

Bellissimo! • Enjoy sailing to the golden-hued Villa La Cassinella on the western shore of idyllic Lake Como with its wrought-iron gate and stately cypress trees. As secluded and private as the setting, your arrival finds your boat docking at one of the world’s most exclusive retreats, the experience like arriving at a private island getaway rather than a peninsula. This paradise was originally constructed in the 1800s and includes the main villa, a guest house, and a secluded pool––courtesy of designer Maggie Austin who was rumoured to have spent hours in a rowboat staring at the villa to find its private location. With 8 double bedrooms and a studio, the estate can sleep up to 18 guests.

Views of the lake can be enjoyed throughout the estate in three-dozen rooms with classic Italian interiors and European art objects. Modern amenities are served up with an excellent staff who see to your every whim while helping you explore new realms of pampering. Lavish surroundings are matched by architectural details like 22-carat gold reflective tiles in the exquisite infinity swimming pool. Manicured gardens set the stage for the enchanting Terrace House with panoramic lake views and private terraces. villalacassinella.com
