History and architecture

Built in the 16th century, the Villa was bought by the Dukes of Serbelloni in the 18th to be their summer escape from the heat of Milan. In this age of exuberant decadence, no expense was spared to make the Villa the most spectacular on the Lake.

The façade was redesigned in the Neoclassical style and the two side wings, impressive staircase, marble balconies and characteristic blue shutters – reflecting the lake waters – were added. Great artists were brought in to embellish the halls and rooms with elaborate stuccoes and frescoes resulting in spectacular period décor.

Outdoors a grand Italian garden with four blossoming parterres was planted, a romantic stone mooring was built and an impressive cast iron gate was installed.

In a sign of their affection for the Villa, the Serbelloni inscribed the words Villulae Quietem, the stillness of a small villa, above the entrance. A statement as true today as it was then.
