Villa Pizzo for Weddings on Lake Como

Villa Pizzo for destination weddings on Lake Como  

Venue location

Located in the village of Cernobbio, at 10 minutes’ drive from the city of Como, with its elegant gardens gently descending to the lakeshore, Villa Pizzo is a fascinating private villa of extraordinary beauty with the longest lake front stretching towards the town of Moltrasio.

Venue description

Muggiasca family built this enchanting villa on the shores of Lake Como in the XV century and established here to escape the plague, offering hospitality to friends in exchange for manual work to dig and level the gardens. They created the present garden structure made of a long series of terraces with some intersected paths and shaded alleys where exotic plans, aloe, lemon and tangerine trees and other rare plants are grown. A walk along these paths offers moments of pure pleasure and takes to the famous dock called “Darsena”, a really evocative stone terrace among a thick forest of tall trees that opens to the lake where symbolic ceremonies are celebrated.

 

Villa Pizzo well maintained interiors are filled with paintings and architectural details that represent a real Italian elegance. A beautiful stone staircase accompanies guests to the lake level where four refined halls amaze guests with portraits of ancient nobles, precious painted ceilings, stucco works and luxury furniture. All four halls face the lake. The Muggiasca is the most famous and largest hall where dinners with max 60 guests or dancing parties for larger groups are organized. Then there is a smaller hall where a group of 10 guests can dine or it can be set up with an Open Bar, tall chairs and tables and other two medium halls that can hold approx. 30 guests and 20 guests for a sit down dinner.

On the second floor of the villa there is a Bridal Suite for a change of dress or touch up.

Wedding ceremonies

Villa Pizzo gardens offer a variety of spots for symbolic ceremonies outdoors, the private Orangerie Garden, the romantic Garden of the Eye and the spectacular Darsena.  It is so easy to fall in love with the Darsena first because it is a real unexpected space couples find after walking a few minutes along the lake shore and then because it is a stunning large stone terrace on two levels right on the waters, suitable to small and large groups, to simple and elegant decors and to opulent or extravagant designs, a white canvas that permits any kind of design. A grand entrance is guaranteed: the Bride comes from the garden path, walks down the short stairs, then down the aisle and a suggestive ceremony accompanied by classical music can start.

Villa Pizzo hosted important celebrity weddings such as John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s and the most fancy guests like Kanye West and Stevie Wonder.
