Its scenic views of blooming green hills and serene lake waters create an impressive backdrop of immense beauty that stunningly frames your luxury Lake Como destination wedding. Among the most exclusive Italian wedding venues on Lake Como, Mitheo Events recommends the exceptional palazzo Villa Balbiano for its harmonious blend of opulent classic Italian architecture and modern-day luxury, the combination of five-star accommodation and majestic wedding location options.

Built during the 16th century by the famous Italian architect Pellegrino Pellegrini, also known as “Tibaldi”, the imposing villa was commissioned by Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio, the first duke of Alvito, as his permanent residence. Villa Balbiano boasts a large collection of fine art pieces dating from the 16th century onwards, including paintings, antique furniture, decorative artifacts and invaluable crystal chandeliers, sourced from Sotheby’s and Christie’s, and that can be admired throughout the villa’s opulent interior.

In 2011, renowned French interior designer and architect Jaques Garcia, undertook the meticulous restoration of the historical decorations and modernization of the villa’s lavish interior, that was enhanced with modern first-class amenities. The trademark indoor pool was then installed inside a former garden shed, perfect for some moments of calmness during the bridal preparation or for a romantic experience of relaxation for the discerning couple after their dreamy Villa Balbiano wedding. The outdoor pool was also built to add even more luxury to the stunning garden setting overlooking Lake Como and is recommended by our Mitheo Events Italy wedding planners as one of the most dreamy locations for a fairy tale wedding reception with panoramic view of the lake.

Villa Balbiano features six luxurious suites, each lavishly decorated in accordance to the original architectural style and with eclectic and decadent details that add distinct character and regal flair. Baroque and Louis XV style furniture, seductive textures and intense jewel toned palettes, individual and unique for each specific suite compliment perfectly the original fine stucco work and elaborate frescoes, composing a truly unique luxury accommodation option on Lake Como.
