One of the newest additions to the shores of Lake Como, Il Sereno is a architectural masterpiece that draws on the beauty of its natural surroundings while also being thoroughly modern and sleek.
Many of Lake Como’s hotels are set within historic villas but Milan-based architect and designer, Patricia Urquiola, has created a contemporary space that focuses on connecting guests to their surroundings. Natural materials including wood, stone and copper are used throughout the design, with local fabrics and artisan furniture characterising the interiors.
There are just 30 spacious suites featuring floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over the water and out towards the mountains. A neutral colour scheme of soft grey and brown with splashes of green and blue complement the natural surroundings and create a bright and tranquil space. Lake Suites feature an outdoor hot tub while the Penthouse has its own private garden.
One of the hotel’s most unique features is the Mirroir Vert du Lac vertical garden filled with almost 2,000 different plants, which can be admired from the terrace. The use of natural materials continues into the restaurant where tables are fashioned from local Ceppo stone and walnut. Here guests can enjoy sumptuous Italian cuisine that draws inspiration from the local larder, using fish from the lake and meat and cheese from the surrounding Valtellina mountains.
A freshwater infinity pool is suspended over the lake and there is a private beach that guests can take full advantage of. There are also two wooden motorboats that can be rented with or without a driver. For the ultimate in relaxation, there is a full-service spa as well as the option to enjoy treatments in the comfort of your room. And of course, everywhere you turn you’ll be greeted with spectacular views of Lake Como, and gazing across the rippling water with a crisp glass of wine in hand is one of the best ways to spend your time here.
Whatever you want your luxury tour or safari itinerary to include, we’ll create something fully bespoke for you… and only you.
