09th March 2016


Villa Pliniana now available to the public for the first time in more than 400 years - a magnificent private villa for events on the shores of Lake Como.

For the first time in more than 400 years Villa Pliniana on Italy's Lake Como is now available to host both private and corporate events. A private residence since 1573, this dramatic waterfront venue has entertained notable figures including Napoleon, Lord Byron, Percy Shelley, Franz Listz and Gioachino Rossini.

The owners have restored the villa to its former splendour through dedicated conservation works, which combined the preservation of the original structure with architectonic solutions. Located in a quiet bay, on the eastern border of the city of Torno, Villa Pliniana’s rich and vibrant history lives on in its stately architecture and palatial interiors.

Set in 18 acres of gardens, this private villa has 19 luxurious bedrooms in four large apartments as well as three additional standalone villas. All accommodation features en-suite marble bathrooms, luxurious furnishings, water views and the latest in modern facilities. The venue’s picturesque waterfront gardens can accommodate up to 400 guests for outdoor events such as weddings and gala dinners, while its two grand ballrooms can seat up to 200 guests.


"Villa Pliniana by Sereno Hotels is by far one of Lake Como’s most historic event destinations and we're delighted to be presenting the property to the Prestigious Venues network. Event guests will enjoy the dramatic views, its heritage and the unique privacy it offers - one of the greatest luxuries of our times." - Samy Ghachem, Managing Director, Sereno Hotels
