Villa Pliniana Lake Como

The Villa Pliniana by Sereno Hotels is a stunning 16th-century Italian Palazzo set on 18 waterfront acres of the legendary Lake Como. This private estate is located in the town of Torno – only 8 km from the main town of Como – but less than one mile away from Il Sereno and all its five-star services, which Villa Pliniana clients also have full access to.

The property features 10-17 bedrooms, a private boat dock, a helicopter landing pad, a waterfall, and vast gardens. The villa complex is exquisitely decorated with 21st-century comforts mixing seamlessly with the timeless frescoes, boiseries, terrazzos, and fireplaces. Patricia Urquiola – the designer of its sister property, il Sereno – has re-designed selected interiors at Villa Pliniana.

All apartments of the villa offer lake views, satellite TV, wireless broadband, air conditioning, and a safe. Moreover, every suite is also equipped with a private kitchen and laundry. Among other highlights, there’s a spa, – featuring a sauna, steam room, emotional showers, swimming pool with hydro-massage, and solarium. Plus, stunning historical ballrooms, a historical loggia, a Capella Canarisi Multimedia room, a billiard room, and kids’ amenities.

The guests of the Villa can enjoy the daily aperitivo hour and breakfasts, custom-made Riva boat tours, and the butler and concierge services. This highly sought-after venue regularly hosts grand events – from celebrity wedding ceremonies and extravagant celebrations – and can be rented out for exclusive occasions on request.
