Hotel Villa Flori
Hotel Villa Flori is situated in one of the most panoramic spots on the western branch of Lake Como, midway between the jet-set destination of Cernobbio and the vibrant city of Como, just a few minutes by car from the Como Nord exit on the A9 autostrada.
Directly overlooking the lake, Villa Flori was built in the 19th century as the private residence of the nobleman Marchese Raimondi, and was the site of his daughter’s short-lived marriage to the hero of Italian unification, General Giuseppe Garibaldi, in 1860.
The villa was transformed into a hotel in 1958, then partially modernized in 1992. Now, having just recently undergone a complete refitting and restyling, Hotel Villa Flori stands proudly and elegantly as an absolutely unique destination on the international hospitality scene.
During the course of the intensive restructuring, which took two years to complete, we strove to maintain all the charm of the original 19th-century atmosphere, meticulously restoring the delicate stucco work and floral frescoes, the rich parquet floors and antique furnishings. But this respect for tradition did not get in the way of an equally careful attention to the demands of contemporary comfort.
