If you like rhododendrons and azaleas then this is the garden for you in mid-April. Beautiful lakeside setting. A good place to wander for an hour or two.

Beautiful location and views over Lake Como. Trees and shrubs in bloom. The bamboo area was wonderful.

The story behind this beautiful villa is fascinating - and the grounds in which you find yourself are really beautiful - well worth a visit (even though it gets quite busy...).

a bit pricey but with that amazing view it was all worth it.. it would surely be a very great place to visit in Spring so you can see all the flowers bloomed.

Well worth the walk around the gardens - they are full of colour and the lake views peeping between trees are amazing. The villa itself is interesting although doesn't take a lot of time to get around.

As everyone claims, this is one of the most beautiful villas to visit along the lake. Once inside the entrance, I followed the pebbled path to the fountain and on the left I had my first real view...

We visited the Villa at the beginning of October and there were still many beautiful flowering plants to admire, including a number of species that are over-wintered in green houses. When... More

The gardens of this villa are of extraordinary beauty. There is a large variety of plants and trees and also a museum where princess Carlotta used to live. One of the most famous and beautiful villas in Lake Como.
