During a rare occurrence in the illustrious resort’s 150-year legacy, Italy’s Villa d’Este will keep its doors open during the holiday season, extending the welcome until January 3, 2023. Traditionally, the establishment shut down for the season in mid-November, but this year, a departure from the norm is in place. The notable resort, situated near Italy’s silk and fashion hubs – Como and Milan, will host the presence of Santa Claus (Babbo Natale).

Adorned with whimsical and sophisticated holiday decorations crafted by floral designer Vincenzo Dascanio, Villa d’Este is set to captivate and enchant visitors of all generations, offering them the opportunity to be a part of a new era in the hotel’s narrative. Within this spellbinding ambience, guests are encouraged to revel in the enchanting season. Engaging culinary sessions suitable for families, jovial afternoon teas, and other holiday-themed activities await.

The imaginative menus curated by Executive Chef Michele Zambanini encompass a variety of delectable dishes, ranging from traditional Italian holiday fare to opulent gourmet options. Entertainment will also be provided during all festive dining experiences.

Villa d’Este transcends the concept of a mere hotel; it epitomizes a destination. Founded in 1568 as the summer retreat of Tolomeo Gallio, a wealthy Cardinal with a profound love for art, the Villa remained within his family for two decades. In 1815, it was acquired by Caroline of Brunswick, Princess of Wales and consort of King George IV of England. The Villa underwent a transformation into a luxury hotel in 1873 and swiftly evolved into the preferred destination for European nobility embarking on their Grand Tours.

Each villa embodies the pinnacle of contemporary luxury while preserving its captivating old-world allure and uniqueness, coupled with the intimacy of a splendid private abode.
