Villa Sola Cabiati

The 18th-century neoclassical Villa Sola Cabiati was once the summer home of Milan's Duke Gabrio Serbelloni, and is now owned by the noble Sola Cabiati family. Ranked high on the list of the area's most breathtaking properties, it has also cultivated an air of mystery, with its frescoed walls, lush gardens, and museum-quality furnishings.

Largely inaccessible to the public for decades, Villa Sola Cabiati is now being managed by the five-star Grand Hotel Tremezzo. The historic villa makes a natural pair with the hotel, which has been a family-owned fixture on Lake Como's shores since 1910. The villa can only be rented in its entirety for up to 12 people, ensuring the kind of privacy Lake Como's royal residents and noble visitors have enjoyed for centuries.

Why we like villa Sola Cabiati

Until recently this magnificent villa was only available for private use, but now the Grand Hotel Tremezzo has opened the doors of this noble residence exclusively to its guests. Now you can discover the hidden aristocratic spirit of Lake Como.  Possibly the most romantic spot in Italy, Villa Sola Cabiati invites residents to live like Italian nobility. The residence is perfectly suited to romantic dinners, landmark celebrations and spectacular parties in this lakefront luxury.


Six bedrooms are brought quickly into the 21st century with home comforts including air conditioning, heating and Wi-Fi. The beauty of its rooms, frescoed by the Tiepolo school, that hasn’t been touched since the 1700s and the tranquillity of the 10-acre baroque estate provides guests with immersive experiences.

Lake Como is a playground for walkers, cyclists, swimmers and water sports enthusiasts. Or simply sit and observe. The location on the Riviera della Tremezzina means you can do just that, spending endless days gazing out across the water to the colourful town of Bellagio, with its bobbing boats.

Elegant Italian gardens overlook the western shore of Lake Como, sitting side by side with the Grand Tremezzo Hotel along the Riviera della Tremezzina.  Milan forms the principal gateway to Lake Como, with three airports – Malpensa (70 minutes), Linate and Bergamo (both 90 minutes) – offering multiple in-roads. On the Swiss side of the border, Lugano Agno airport is also within reach (50 minutes).
