Stay at MO Lago di Como
If some walls can talk, then those of the 19th-century Villa Roccabruna can surely sing. Set amongst verdant gardens and gazing over the shimmering waters this delightful lake-side mansion was once home to mezzo-soprano Giuditta Pasta, one of Bellini's muses.When you glimpse the dramatic setting for the first time you can instantly appreciate its operatic quality. The stately period grandeur of the house remains but with decor recently refreshed with a little trademark Asian flavour by the purveyors of high-end luxury the Mandarin Oriental group. Expect high standards, and you won’t be disappointed.
Proudly sitting in lush gardens on the southeast bank of Lake Como, minutes from the village Blevio. The city of Como is 15 minutes by car, Milan is 1 hour. Milan Malpensa is the nearest airport.
75 rooms and suites, shared between the main villa and a further 8 annexes. Non-are cheap but those looking for something more affordable should look at the garden view rooms. Those looking to go all out can opt for the Presidential suite with a private pool. The 3-bedroom villa with cinema and library areas would be heaven for families.
Who is it for
Couples and families looking for spectacular views of Lake Como and the reliable high-standard and impeccable service of the Mandarin Oriental brand.
Facilities & activities
The best spa on Lake Como, indoor and outdoor pools – including a highly photogenic floating pool. Two private boats for exploring the lake. A fabulous gourmet restaurant titled L˜Aria in honour of the villa’s former resident songstress.
