Italian Romance at Villa Sola Cabiati

A couple escape for an authentic Italian date at fascinating Villa Sola Cabiati is how K and D spent the day before their destination wedding on Lake Como.

Far from the eyes of their guests, the couple spent some last intimate moments of romance before the commotion of the wedding events.

Bottega53 captured the couple embodying the spirit of “la dolce vita” on a vintage Mercedes from Vague, and indulging in the art of dolce far niente, promenading along the stunning Italian gardens of Villa Sola Cabiati.

Set among breathtaking scenery, Villa Sola Cabiati offered the perfect set for the couple’s photoshoot. This 16th Century villa, summer escape of Italian noble family, Dukes of Serbelloni, is an architectural and artistic masterpiece which transports back to a time of decadence.

Visited during the centuries by royalty and stars, the villa even displays the untouched bed that once belonged to Napoleon Bonaparte, his wife Joséphine de Beauharnais’s clothes and the leader’s chapeau, among many priceless artefacts.

Behind its iconic cast iron gate, a perfectly symmetrical Italian garden leads to the villa and its impressive façade, pastel-toned frescoes, tapestries, paintings and sumptuous chandeliers.
Ideal for intimate gatherings, wedding proposals, engagement and couples’ photoshoots or a luxury retreat, Villa Sola Cabiati is the ultimate location for memorable moments in true Lake Como lifestyle.

With six suites featuring their original décor, yet modernized and brought to the standard of Grand Hotel Tremezzo’s five-star hospitality, dedicated staff and a private outdoor pool, the Villa and its lavish rooms make for the most wonderful backdrop to an intimate wedding reception.
