A magnificent 17-bedroom private Italian palazzo from the 16th century, on Lake Como

Villa Pliniana is a unique luxury villa located in a secluded location on Lake Como’s shore.

Villa Pliniana is an historical Italian palazzo from the sixteenth century, and offers exquisite views across the lake, and the surrounding greenery. Set across eighteen waterfront acres, the estate offers up to seventeen luxurious bedrooms, which are spread across the grounds: four large apartments in the main villa and two separate villas accommodating a maximum of thirty-six guests.

Intent on retaining its charm and integrity, Villa Pliniana underwent a full and careful restoration and has since been updated to the highest standards whilst maintaining the historical details of the original design.

This villa manages to effortlessly blend the luxurious service of a five-star resort with the intimate balance of a home-away-from-home setting, as well as merging the traditional with the contemporary, having exquisite frescoes and 16th century art and architecture, mixed with twenty-first century mod cons and amenities.

The villas are exquisitely decorated with 21st century comforts mixed seamlessly with the timeless frescoes, boisieries, terrazzo floorings and fireplaces.A highlight of the Villa is the piano where Gioachino Rossini wrote the Opera Tancredi in 1813, which still rests at the same spot where he once sat but is now lovingly renovated. Of particular note are the elaborate Venetian terrazzo-style floor designs and the painted wooden ceilings in the two main ballrooms.

Featuring large, spacious rooms, with incredible lake views, and a natural colour scheme, the rooms make the most of the natural light pouring through and have all the necessary mod cons for a deluxe, comfortable stay.

Boasting an incredible infinity pool, within a dedicated spa, located on the terrace above the gardens, guests can fully indulge in some quality rest and relaxation time and can take in the splendid vistas from the opulent gardens.

Boasting two large waterfalls on the estate, and a boat dock, guests wishing to explore via the waterways are more than welcome to explore the estate on a private tour, on foot, bicycle, horseback, or even by boat.

This romantic villa is the epitome of Italian style, architecture and luxury. Thanks to its extensive grounds and grand ballrooms, this luxury villa is perfect for destination weddings and other special events. As it is the only property on Lake Como without noise restrictions, guests can carry on the festivities until the early hours!

Villa Pliniana


Villa Pliniana is located on the southeast shore of Lake Como, in the town of Torno, only 8 km from the main town of Como and less than one mile away from Il Sereno and all its amenities, which Villa Pliniana’ s clients have full access to.

Guests staying here have the option to explore the picturesque villages and historical sites of Lake Como by boat or perhaps explore the beautiful nature of the area by hiking, biking, water skiing or horse riding.

For those wishing for a more gastronomic experience, guests can indulge in the local flavours by attending wine tastings and cooking classes to become a culinary maestro.

No Lake Como Experience would be complete without a shopping spree at the range of boutiques, designer shops and department stores.

For guests arriving at Villa Pliniana via alternative routes, i.e. waterways and air travel, the property’s private boat dock assures the safe harbouring of boats, ferries and Il Sereno’s custom-designed Riva boat transfers, and the on-property helipad allows easy connection to Milan and main airports.

The Villa is only 37 miles (approximately one hour away) from Milano Malpensa airport (MXP), the principal airport nearest the villa. Villa Pliniana is also accessible by car and offers a spacious underground parking garage at the complex.

Villa Pliniana is less than one kilometre (2/3 mile) from Il Sereno.
