Como lake: magical atmosphere

The dreaming atmospheres of Lario; a perfect stage upon which to live unforgettable moments.

If you are wondering what is so special about Lake Como and why it attracts wedding couples from all over the world, go to Villa Carlotta, and after taking in the wonderful scents and colors of the gardens, enter the historic building. Through the central hall into the room of Cupid and Psyche, linger to observe the Tadolini copy of the famous sculpture. Then go out again, this time onto the terrace, and allow yourself to get lost in the landscape just beyond you, recognising in nature the same intensity that the artist's hand has been able to extract from the marble: Cupid’s arms holding Psyche like the steep mountains sloping into the lake; the lovers’ eyes reflecting in each other like the green mirrored in the blue. This sublime emotion is what makes this lake unique and is why it has conquered the hearts of many people over the centuries, from illustrious names of history and literature to the more contemporary stars of the Dolce Vita. The marks of this entanglement of lives can be found in the beautiful historical villas overlooking Lake Como, which are incredible settings for the reception of your dreams. For example, Villa Del Balbianello where couples may celebrate civil ceremonies with a view over the enchanting Gulf of Venus, or Villa La Quiete where the taste of history lives on in its original decorations and furnishings, or even Villa del Grumello or the Relais Regina Teodolinda, where a careful renovation has enhanced the structure with contemporary details. It’s worth mentioning here that the big hotels keep attracting famous guests from all around the world; the Grand Hotel Villa D'Este in Cernobbio with its gardens and beautiful mosaics; the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni Bellagio in the best known town by the lake; and the Grand Hotel Tremezzo. To witness that the passion for Lario is still alive, we can find more contemporary resorts, such as the exclusive Mandarin Oriental. We recommend to more dynamic spirits to celebrate barefoot on the beach of Lido di Lenno, one of the most picturesque bays of the lake. We started this short journey through the region of Lake Como with an embrace; Cupid and Psyche, nature and art, history and modernity, elegance and originality. After all, what's more, romantic than saying “I do” locked in each other’s arms!
