Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni

Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni is one of the oldest and most elegant hotels in Italy. Set in the splendid surroundings of Lake Como, where the blue waters meet the green mountains which soar above the lake, the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni enjoys a breathtaking position on the promontory which juts halfway out into the lake, separating the two branches. Lake Como, part of the northern Italian Lakes District,  is Italy's deepest and most popular lake. It is surrounded by mountains and is known for it's world renowned romantic atmosphere. It is conveniently located between Milan and the border of Switzerland.

For the past 100 years or more, the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni has been one of the most well-known and prestigious hotels in the world. The luxurious vegetation of its Italian-style gardens, abounding in Mediterranean and subtropical plants, flourishes in the pleasant microclimate around the lake: sunshine almost all year round, accompanied by mild temperatures in every season. Owing to its delightful setting, Bellagio, an oasis of peace on the shores of the lake, has been a holiday destination for centuries and it was here that, in around 1850, construction work started on a luxurious holiday villa on the banks of the lake for an aristocratic family from Milan.Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni

Did you know? Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa


By: Five Star Alliance

Dum u Jeziska, aka House at the Jesus Child, houses the Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa. The oldest preserved part of the Dum u Jeziska is the rear portion facing the courtyard, which was built after 1591. The lower part of the original tower structure, with its perimeter masonry supported by steel bars, dates from the fortification of the Lesser Town in 1257, the oldest Premyslid fortification.

Alchymist Hotel and Spa
The Dum u Jeziska is also linked with several legends. One of them is that a convent once stood there and a nun seriously violated the rules of her order. As punishment for her transgression, she was bricked alive. Legend claims that her unhappy soul has been wandering the property since; however, the legend also suggests that the nun will be freed only when the house built on the former convent foundations is demolished and the nun's remains are buried.

Did You Know? Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort


By: Five Star Alliance

If a passer-by had stopped to look at the Dunraven family home in the 1830s he would have seen a typical Georgian house. Returning twenty years later, he would have found that modest structure had disappeared and been replaced by the exceptional Neo-Gothic Manor that stands to this day as Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort. The house is initially reminiscent of a chateau, but many of its features are shared by great residences of the era in Britain and Ireland. Mysteriously, the Manor is laid out as a Calendar House. 365 stained windows and 52 chimneys mark the annual tally of days and weeks. Sleuthing visitors may be able to spot references to the 7 days of the week and 12 months of the year.
