Owner description: Villa Carlotta welcomes you with its magnificent botanic garden and art masterpieces in over 70.000 square metres of gardens and museum. The beautiful villa was built at the end of XVII century by the Milanese marquis Giorgio Clerici in a natural basin between lake and mountains, facing the dolomite Grignas and the peninsula of Bellagio.

We have just returned from Lake Como and one of the highlights of our stay was visiting the Villa Carlotta. The gardens were ablaze with azaelias,rhodedendrons and camellias in full flower. It also had a fabulous bamboo garden, delighful flower borders and a magnificent walkway covered in oranges and lemons. Add to this the lake views and you have perfection.

We had seen the garden on the Monty Don programme and it did live up to what you saw on the programme. Everywhere was clean and tidy. we spent a afternoon in the garden and sat on the terrace over looking the lake in glorious sunshine. A lovely display of wisteria and azaleas where blooming when we visited.

Great gardens! There was such a wide variety of trees and flowers.. The Villa inside was more of an art exhibit.

The villa and gardens are fabulous. It is a shame the ticket office staff are not. They were very rude to visitors who did not have euros to pay with.

We are nearing the end of our honeymoon and we have been touring Italy from Venice, to Florence, Verona and the lakes. On a whim, we visited villa carlotta and it was one of the many highlights of our trip!! We would recommend this highly. It costs €9 each which at first we thought was a bit steep but by the end, it was definitely worth every penny/cent!! :) there's a lot of walking involved to get your money's worth but the views are incredible. This is a must see!!
