Coveted destination for aristocrats and celebrities
The suggestive magic of Lake Como has been luring the aristocracy for centuries, becoming residence to Queens, Princesses, Sultans, and Tsars. To this day Lake Como is a coveted destination for aristocrats and celebrities either visiting or owning a home on its shores.
Villa Malakoff is set on the pristine estate of Villa d’Este. Built in the year 1568, as the summer residence of Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio, Villa D’Este was transformed into a luxury hotel in 1873, destined to become a favorite destination for the exigent European aristocracy.
Villa d’Este is surrounded by a 25 acres enchanting private park with centennial trees, statues, and colorful flowers, in one of the most celebrated areas in the world, where history, art, and nature have conspired harmoniously.
Villa Malakoff was built in 1860 and sits on a small secluded hill within the grounds of Villa d’Este, offering the most heart-stirring views of Lake Como. A luxury lake view such as this is synonymous with the art of living well.
