Overlooking the ancient village of Ossuccio and surrounded by a hundreds year old park, equipped with both outdoor and indoor pools. It is an ancient residence of unmatched charm, built by Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio at the end of the 16th century and then renovated and embellished by Cardinal Durini two centuries later. The façade is characterised by simple and restrained lines, and is mirrored over the waters of Lake Como. From the Strada Regina, a succession of blue irises leads to the main mansion, surrounded by boxwood hedges, where plane trees and cypresses grow, a boasting feature of the villa. The garden, which overlooks the lake, is a magical place to get lost in, with its hedges and pergolas, and is ideal for romantic ceremonies and open-air dinners, creating a highly scenic result.
Inside, the palace is sumptuous and decorated with spectacular Baroque frescoes and marble floors. There is also the possibility to stay at Villa Il Balbiano in one of the 6 luxurious suites, a way for the newlyweds and their guests to fully enjoy the beauty of Lake Como. The Villa is also attracting a great deal of international interest as it was the location for some scenes of the highly anticipated film ‘House of Gucci‘ (Ridley Scott, 2021): choose to host your wedding at one of the most discussed Villas of the moment!
The newlyweds can have a triumphant entrance to remember, thanks to a private dock! Villa Il Balbiano is the perfect location for an unique and magical wedding on Como Lake.
