Villa il Balbiano is a 17th-century villa, a hidden gem straight out of a fairy-tale, one of the grandest and oldest properties on the western shore of Lake Como, a warm and characterful place to organize your Italian wedding. The historical villa provides spectacular panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding mountains that can be seen from the elegant lakeside garden with its immaculate lawn and picturesque manicured topiaries framing the view.
Villa il Balbiano reached a new high of glory at the end of the 18th century when a Cardinal acquired it and transformed it into a marvelous workshop of ideas and art. The Villa nowadays is beautifully restored preserving the elegance and architecture of the Baroque era while the interiors are filled with finest objects d’art and antique furniture.
Thanks to the private pier it is easy for the Bride to arrive on board of a wooden Riva boat. Couples may decide to have a photo tour on the lake during the cocktail hour or leave by boat at the end of the party to start their honeymoon.
Symbolic ceremonies are generally organized lakeside right in front of the Villa façade, allowing the Bride a grand entrance from its main door. Cocktail and reception in the connected gardens and by the pool or indoors for max 60 guests. Outdoor area suitable to groups of max 200 guests.
