Milan Malpensa Airport - 50 minutes

Villa Malakoff

Built in 1860, the villa takes its name from one of the fortresses around Sebastopol, conquered by the French General MacMahon. Standing on a small hill within the grounds of Villa d'Este, it offers splendid views of Lake Como. Rooms are distributed over three floors with 300 square metres of living areas – ample space to make guests feel at home.

The rooms are tastefully and luxuriously appointed, and the warm tones and informal ambience of this grand yet hospitable residence will immediately put you at ease. A stay at Villa Malakoff is truly the best of both worlds: a private home where you can enjoy discretion and privacy, yet one with all the amenities and creature comforts offered by the world class service of a Villa d'Este Group property.
