    The hotel occupies a historic villa, one of the most beautiful on Lake Como. Built in the 19th century by the Marchese Raimondi and subsequently the coveted residence of a series of noble Lombard families, it was transformed into a hotel in 1958 and then completely renovated in 2011. Firstly, the aim of the restructuring was to preserve the nuances of the 19th-century atmosphere through the careful restoration of the delicate stucco work and enchanting floral frescoes, the gorgeous parquet floors and the details of the antique furnishings and fixtures. Secondly, the renovation made it possible to enhance the quality of hospitality with the most up-to-date comforts and facilities, from the lounge bar on the lake's edge and hi-tech services in every room and suite to the fitness centre and Turkish bath.
