Villa Claudia, Lake Maggiore's little Gem


A bejeweled front-lake wedding venue to host your epic love story

A period residence very known to the history of Lake Maggiore, this stunning venue will let you experience all the splendor of the Victorian era. The property was originally commissioned to be a wedding gift to a princess, and is set in an historically notable area, where poets and scholars used to meet looking for inspiration and tranquility.

The private setting and the green scenery that this venue offers, with bejeweled gardens sloping towards the lake make for a wonderful wedding scenario, where the bride can surprise the guests arriving by boat to the private pier.


Ideally suited for weddings with up to 170 guests, there are a couple of different options to design your outdoor ceremony. One is the villa’s terrace overlooking the lake and the other one is the secular park with swimming pool and adjacent English gardens filled with azaleas, rhododendrons, camelias, magnolias and hortensias.

The elegant indoor area and period halls facing the lake will provide you with an equally beautiful alternative for all weathers.

The main building includes a large kitchen which is available for your reception, with free choice of external catering. The villa is avaiable for exclusive rental only, from March to October.
