Hotel Villa D’Este
The company Villa d’Este SpA, established in 1873, currently comprises four hotels. The first two, Grand Hotel Villa d’Este (Cernobbio, Lake Como) and Villa la Massa – a Renaissance villa on the banks of the Arno (Florence, Candeli), offer a total of 198 deluxe rooms in historical buildings with upscale facilities. The other two hotels, Barchetta Excelsior and Palace, both located on the lake side of downtown Como, are 4-star facilities with altogether 184 rooms.
Villa d’Este is an internationally recognized brand synonymous with aristocratic hospitality. This reputation is mainly due to the company’s historical hotel, which affluent clientele consider a destination by itself, a “must” on the Italian Grand Tour.
The group’s activities guidelines can be summarized as follows:
• Excelling in hospitality;
• Matching historical tradition with a constant innovation in services;
• Preserving the considerable historical heritage;
• Attention to the environment and contributing to related local initiatives.
Among the numerous nominations that Villa d’Este received in the years, we’d like to mention the recent FORBES election that ranks Villa d’Este as “Best Hotel of the World”
