Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni, Bellagio Como

Villa Serbelloni, one of the oldest hotels in the Lake Como area, was one of the most famous stops along the 19thC tour of the lakes. Not much has changed today. This 5-star hotel is decorated in a neo-classical style and offers guests the pleasure of a relaxing poolside, spa treatments or a motorboat ride from the private dock to the historic gardens along the lake.

Our talented team of Trip Designers are the best in the world at what they do—and what they do is turn fantasies into reality. (We thought about changing their title to “Dream Weavers,” but we didn’t want to re-print all those business cards.)


“We’re discriminating travellers, so topping our list of favourites is difficult to do—yet B&R has easily done it! We were impressed by everything. Lunches were extraordinary. Dinners were lavish, and the vino was free flowing!”
