Villa Carlotta on Lake Como

Villa Carlotta was built at the end of the 17th century by Marquis Clerici, in a breathtaking area of the Como Lake, with a fantastic view on Bellagio and the Grigne mountains.The venue is surrounded by a 70.000 square meters park, and today it hosts an important museum that exhibits works of art from Canova, Appiani and many others artists.

The botanical park offers a different romantic landscape for each season. It overlooks the lake with its magnificence, with beautiful flowers and plants like rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, cedars and sequoias.
The Italian garden will amaze the guests with its high hedges, balustrades, ancient gods statues and the fountain with the water show that reminds of ancient times.

On the front of the villa, five terraces lay linked between them thanks to a stunning stairway of the 17th century full of flowerbeds, little ponds and fountains. In this part of the villa, citrus tree tunnels, papyrus trees and high camellia hedges rise creating a magic corner, an area praised by Gustave Flaubert during his stay on the lake on the 19th century.
The civil wedding can be organised on the Terrazza delle Camelie, directly in front of the lake, or in the elegant Sala dei Gessi inside of the villa.
