If an event filled with unbridled luxury is your wish, then a wedding at Villa Balbiano on Lake Como is the answer. This exclusive and elegant venue has gained more and more prestige over the years, becoming the most glamorous and sought-for villa for a destination wedding unlike any other. Leave your guests speechless, and get ready for a truly unforgettable Italian experience.

Villa Balbiano wedding: the lavish side of Lake Como

A private pier and a boathouse, an extensive Italian garden that makes it the largest private residence on Lake Como, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool: these features would be enough to fall in love with it already, but Villa Balbiano is much more than this.

Villa Balbiano is a sumptuous historic palace built in the 16th Century by the famous Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio, its first owner, and embellished over time by those who got in touch with it. It was the scene of decades of mundane events such as parties, dances and banquets, that brought to the current status of exclusive, exceptional venue for weddings and much more.

The interiors make it even more unique: marble floors combine with the original 17th Century frescoes, and with a collection of artworks, antiquities and furniture that turn Villa Balbiano into a place of timeless opulence and magnificence.

The venue is now part of a private collection of splendid properties located all over Europe – Villa Clara in Rome, Villa Astor on the Amalfi Coast, and Chateau de Villette in Paris – all of which were restored and decorated by the renowned interior designer Jacques Garcia. At Villa Balbiano, your wedding will be extraordinary.

The exclusive opulence of your wedding at Villa Balbiano

Villa Balbiano can accommodate all of your needs. You can spend a few days there with your loved ones, before and after the wedding: the villa boasts six luxurious and individually designed suites and, together with the Villino, can host up to 28 people.

Otherwise, you could also decide to only rent the property for your wedding day. An intimate celebration with 40 or 50 guests can be held in the awe-inspiring salons, while bigger parties can be set in the beautiful garden (with the help of a marquee in case of bad weather).

As you can understand, Villa Balbiano is not just a wedding venue: it’s a status symbol, a place where a selected clientele celebrates their most special events, surrounded by a lavish and dazzling environment.

Get in touch with Paolo Cicognani and his team and let them plan your bespoke, grand wedding at Villa Balbiano. It will exceed even the brightest of your dreams.
