Weddings at Villa Sola Cabiati on Lake Como

Villa Sola Cabiati, Lake Como  

Venue description

One of the most well-known Villas on Lake Como, the majestic Villa Sola Cabiati was the summer residence of the Serbelloni Dukes and dates back to the 1500s. It is also considered one of the most elegant Villas in Italy. Villa Sola Cabiati, located on the western shore of Lake Como, is a refined example of Baroque architecture. It was refurbished yet retains the original furniture, frescoed ceilings, damask-covered walls and large living rooms of timeless elegance. Tucked away in a secluded corner is the private pool to make a sojourn in the villa even more pleasant and relaxing.


Just imagine arriving from the lake onboard a water taxi, walking past the double staircase and the iron-wrought gates, along the perfectly curated Italian gardens with their arabesques. The main door opens to welcome you in a magnificent hall, where candles light up the spectacular frescoed ceiling. Room after room, a treasury of stuccos, frescoes, paintings, and vintage furniture unfolds before your eyes in a palette of pastel colors matching the hues of the lake and gardens that can be seen from every room.


Villa Sola Cabiati is within walking distance to the town of Tremezzo. Across the lake from the Villa, at only 10 minutes’ boat, is the renowned town of Bellagio.
