Villa Banello

Colonno, Province of Como, Italy

Description

Located on the western shore of Lake Como, Villa Balbiano is a breathtaking Italian gem, an exceptional historic palazzo that belonged to a famous cardinal, who ordered the palace to be built in the late 16th century.

A century later, it was extended and embellished to accommodate a frivolous and glamorous society, where festivals, banquets and dances were held endlessly. Since then, each successive owner has only added to the splendour of the villa.

Today, Villa Balbiano is the largest private residence on the lake, occupying more than 20,000m2, with a vast, sumptuous garden, outdoor swimming pool, private jetty and boathouse.

Inside, with its 6 luxurious suites and indoor pool, its historic spaces have been enriched with the finest works of art and furniture from past centuries. Spectacular 17th century frescoes, painted by renowned artists, still decorate the walls, untouched by time.

With its glorious past, an unparalleled combination of natural beauty and man-made works, Villa Balbiano is one of the most prestigious places on Lake Como, ideal for a family, romantic and friends stay, a unique film shoot and an incredible private or professional event.

Villa Balbiano offers exclusive accommodation in a truly historic palazzo.

The villa features 6 luxurious suites in the main palazzo, each individually designed by a famous interior designer, a fully equipped kitchen, a library, 3 living rooms, a gym and a wellness area to relax in after a long day by the pool in the Italian sun.

From the breathtaking views of Lake Como to the sumptuous surroundings and impressive marble bathrooms, you will discover an unparalleled level of style and elegant luxury.

With its incredible setting, explore the picturesque paradise, take a romantic boat or seaplane ride over the lake with your friends, visit its famous attractions with your family or stroll through the charming local towns and villages.
