Located on the tip of Lavedo promontory, it represents one of the most spectacular panoramic spots of the Lake, surrounded by the lush vegetation of its beautiful gardens.
This jewel dates back to the XVIII century, when Cardinal Durini built it as a literary retreat: it is the only villa on the Lake Como offering visitors the chance to admire it as it was.

Admire the sumptuous rooms of the villa, decorated with Baroque furnishings and luxurious tapestry, and breath in the peaceful atmoshpere of the luxuriant Italian-style gardens offering stunning views over the Lake.
