When travel industry veteran Andrea Grisdale of IC Bellagio and the savvy local entrepreneurs of the Pertusini family came together, they had a vision – to create an elegant home away from home for everyone dreaming of living the life of a Lake Como local. So they set about painstakingly restoring the lakeside historic palace that had been in the family for years. The result is a unique boutique property with five separate accommodations for guests who like their old world charm with a side of 21st century creature comforts and an ideal setting for that special lakeside occasion or event.
Il Palazzo del Vice Re puts guests within easy reach of the region’s cultural highlights, natural beauty and athletic adventures and provides an ideal lakeside retreat for the sweet idleness the Italians call dolce far’ niente. Linger over coffee on the Il Cortile terrace with its panoramic views, mingle with other guests at the daily aperitivo in Il Bar and go underground to the stone-clad La Cantina for tastings of Italy’s finest craft foods and libations.
And with the award-winning travel professionals of IC Bellagio just a phone call away, no whim is too way-out: fireworks over the lake, photography excursions, a personal chef for your private event, a cruise in a vintage Riva and much, much more.
