The hotel occupies an historic villa, one of the most beautiful on Lake Como. Built in the 19th century by the Marchese Raimondi and subsequently the coveted residence of a series of noble Lombard families, it was transformed into a hotel in 1958 and then completely renovated in 2011.
Firstly, the aim of the restructuring was to preserve the nuances of the 19th-century atmosphere through the careful restoration of the delicate stucco work and enchanting floral frescoes, the gorgeous parquet floors and the details of the antique furnishings and fixtures.
Secondly, the renovation made it possible to enhance the quality of hospitality with the most up-to-date comforts and facilities, from the lounge bar on the lake’s edge and hi-tech services in every room and suite to the fitness centre and Turkish bath.
Our guests can choose among 53 rooms, including 7 Junior Suites and 1 Villa Suite, each characterised by a dignified charm, an exceptional level of comfort and an incomparable view of Lake Como. Even the shared spaces open to the outside, sheltered by the lush vegetation of the grounds, to enrich every moment of your stay with the magical beauty of the setting and the feeling of profound serenity that only contact with nature can provide. A private dock allows access by water to both the hotel and the Ristorante Raimondi. We are also happy to offer our guests private boat excursions on the lake on request.
Welcoming you to the Villa is our spacious Hall, featuring full-length windows that look out onto the lake. Make yourself comfortable and let your gaze wander across the lake from the hilltop villages of Torno and Blevio, with its distinctive bell tower, to Brunate peak; from the dome of Como Cathedral to the distant tower of Baradello.
