“The Villa Sola Cabiati is one of the great, iconic villas on Lake Como. It’s dotted everywhere with beautiful villas, but few of them have special historical value. Most of them are now open to the public, but the Villa Sola Cabiati is not one of them — it’s the only one that has always remained private.” says Valentina De Santis, whose family owns the Grand Hotel Tremezzo.

Villa Sola Cabiati was built in the 16th century and it was renovated by the noble Serbelloni family when they purchased it in the 18th century, remaining in the family ever since. The renovation added two wings, the incredible Italian gardens that are in the front of the house and also upgraded de façade. Important Italian artists, like the school of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, did the frescos.

Walking through the gardens and into the villa, you enter a lobby dripping with luxury — ornate stucco and pastel-toned frescos are surrounded by antique furniture. Upstairs, overlooking the lake, the Sala Degli Stucchi features frescos on the walls and ceiling.

Here, guest can enjoy their long lunches with the windows open, taking in the beautiful view of the lake. In the afternoon, they can be laying by the pool that’s set among the rambling Tuscan-style gardens behind the villa. When you stay here, everything is covered — including your own private chef and a boat for trips around the lake.

The villa even has a museum that can be visited with a guide. But one of the highlights of the house is a bed that belonged to Napoleon Bonaparte, along with the rest of the bedroom furniture, that was moved there by the family during World War II.

All of the objects and rooms in the villa tell a story, from the halberds used at the Battle of Lepanto and black Pietro Giovanni Mantegazza violins played at the 1780 funeral of Holy Roman Empress Maria Theresa, to the perfectly preserved upper apartments of poet Giuseppe Parini and mathematician and astronomer Paolo Frisi.

Nowadays, each of the guest’s suites has its own personality, some have walls lined with silk; some are bright and uplifting, others are dark and sombre. For De Santis, the villa offers a unique experience that few hotels can. “Staying at the villa means you take a step back in time; to really live like 200 years ago. The villa breathes its history everywhere, and you are living that history.”, she says.
