Words fail to describe this 17th century lakeside Palazzo. To stay here gives you the opportunity to live and breathe its history. The Palazzo, with its own private mooring and gated steps from the lake, is furnished throughout with antique furniture and art. The six bedroom suites have lakeside views and modern bathrooms, but are decorated in keeping with the period. There are stunning gardens, a superb swimming pool and the Palazzo is fully staffed with maid service and private chef.
Over the centuries the lake has been an important waterway, with numerous towns springing up along its shores that still today, centuries later, retain all their beauty. In the 18th and 19th centuries the particular combination of these climatic and landscape features induced many aristocratic families to build villas and gardens of great historical importance and rare beauty in the most charming points along the lake, some of which are open to visitors.
Galeazzo is comprised of a main body and two lateral wings. Although retaining the original architectural structure and furnishings, the wings have been remodeled according to the law to make six mini suites and a double bedroom available to guests, all with bathrooms. The top two floors of the central construction are designed for a museum preserving the furniture and objects as the original owners had left them. The ground floor of the central part features a large, luminous double entrance room, a large living room flanked by two small drawing rooms, a dining room and a modern, spacious kitchen. The first and second floors of the central part are used as a museum and contain the apartments, furniture and objects collected by the owners. Guests may use both a formal garden in front of the villa and a large garden in the rear that includes the area set aside for the swimming pool.

Lake Como, Italy
Lake Como, considered Italy’s most beautiful lake, possesses a unique picturesque and classic quality. For this reason, it has been the setting of many feature films, among them Star Wars Episode II, Casino Royale and Ocean’s Twelve. After filming Ocean’s Twelve, George Clooney even decided to purchase a villa of his own here. For centuries various famous writers, such as Byron, Stendhal and Shelley, and members of royalty have made Lake Como their favorite destination for its peaceful and tranquil aura, its enchanting elegant villages along the shore surrounded by lush groves of trees. Milan, the fashion capital of Italy, with its rich historical and artistic heritage, is only 27 miles away by bus and train.
