The villa was originally built in 1814 by Caroline of Brunswick, the then Princess of Wales, to house a count and countess. Though it has since been updated, the refined antique furnishings reflect its royal heritage. Carved trim, leaded windows and vine-covered walls lend a storybook feel to the exteriors, while inside, terrazzo floors and Murano chandeliers are both beautiful and traditional. Several well-appointed sitting rooms boast lake views, and the formal dining area can seat eight. In contrast to the rest of the villa, the fully equipped kitchen is practical and modern.
Each of the four bedrooms at Villa Cima features an en-suite bathroom, a private balcony or terrace and views of Lake Como. There are two suites with king beds and two with queen beds, all with stately accents such as floral print bedding, high ceilings and tasseled drapes that speak to the 19th century origins in an understated way.
Named one of the best hotels not just in Lombardy or Italy but in the world for its breathtaking location, Renaissance gardens and opulent decor, Villa dEste is a destination in itself and popular for honeymoons, destination weddings and other special occasions. The surrounding area is equally rich in history and attractions, from the restaurants and shops in Cernobbio, a 5-minute walk from the villa, to the churches and museums of the nearby city of Como. For a memorable day trip, drive to Bellagio and visit its historic villas and revel in its spectacular views.
