Villa Cima

Sumptious, stylish and spacious, Villa Cima provides an opportunity to relax and unwind in privacy while enjoying spectacular vistas and the luxurious service and facilities of one of Italy's finest hotels, Villa d'Este. Its regal poise is no accident, commissioned in 1814 by Caroline of Brunswick, Princess of Wales and the future Queen of England, to house the former owners of Villa d'Este, Count and Countess Pilo.

The villa is set within 25 acres of Villa d'Este's stunning gardens, with topiary hedges, bamboo, azaleas, camellias, oleanders, rhododendrons, hydrangeas, roses and jasmine bushes. The trees range from chestnut, magnolia, oleafragrans, wisteria, palm, cypress, pine, ilex, privet, mediar to many others.

Villa Cima's own terraces and gardens – directly overlooking the exquisite lake – provide ample space to entertain alfresco. This beautiful location offers a rare combination of complete privacy and five-star service provided by the hotel. Villa Cima's magnificent interiors are decorated in a variety of traditional styles and are complemented by a collection of striking antiques and art.

The spectacular views from every window are simply breathtaking, creating images that will stay with you and your family for a lifetime. The private terraces offer guests the perfect opportunity to enjoy alfresco living, while marveling at the incomparable beauty of Lake Como. The poet Shelley captured the location perfectly, penning: "This lake exceeds anything else I have ever beheld in beauty."

Many subtle touches, the utmost discretion, and impeccable service are the hallmarks of Villa d'Este; Villa Cima, the jewel in the hotel's crown, is no exception.
