 Built by Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio at the end of the 16th-century Villa Benita, this luxury Italian villa was recently restored, whilst maintaining its distinctive character and timeless beauty. The Villa’s grand entrance halls and reception areas are decorated with original floor to ceiling baroque frescoes, and throughout the villa, you discover beautiful antiques, paintings, silks and exotic velvets.

This sumptuous palazzo is actually an estate, comprising the main house, the Villino and the Dependence set in expansive lakeside gardens extending to 3 acres. The main villa has six bedrooms over three floors and is perfect for a group of up to 12.

Villa Benita is located on one of the most scenic parts of Lake Como, and you have direct private access to the lake from this luxury villa. And with its own polished wood Venetian taxi, you can get everywhere you need to be by water.

With two exquisite swimming pools, outdoor and indoor, plenty of terraces and al fresco dining areas, and stunning landscaped gardens, Villa Benita is an exceptional lake-side retreat.  With its ideal location, this villa is the perfect choice for both friends and family, and for those who want to celebrate special events and celebrations, including, of course, exceptional weddings.
