Welcome to Palazzo del Vice Re, offering unique luxury accommodation near Bellagio on Lake Como where serious old world charm meets 21st century creature comforts. Housed in a palace with a rich, centuries-old history, no two walls or ceilings are alike in the three apartments, one junior suite and one deluxe double room. Renovations of this historic property were completed in 2013 under the motto “Made in Italy”: local artisans brought the palace’s historic features back to their former glory, a sought-after Northern Italian painter created original artwork, the finest in Italian textiles were used on the windows and beds, and each room boasts an eclectic mix of elegant antiques and modern bathrooms, kitchens and upholstery from Italy’s best vendors.
Staying at Palazzo del Vice Re means having the best of both worlds: enjoy a coveted lakefront location, but with the serenity of an off-the-beaten-track fishing village; indulge in our elegant historic palace, but with 21st-century creature comforts; and have the convenience of a self-catering apartment, but with a vast sweet and savory breakfast buffet and twice daily housekeeping service. And although Il Palazzo has no elevator, our porters are always available to help with your luggage.
Guests from both the apartment and rooms are very welcome in Il Palazzo’s public rooms. Enjoy breakfast in the charming dining room – Sala Giunone – before a Renaissance-era fresco and a 17th century fireplace, mingle with other guests under 400-year-old ceiling frescos in the bar’s daily aperitivo and take part in wine and craft food tastings under stone-clad vaulted ceilings in Bar Barbarossa. Or – better yet – ask to be served in our charming courtyard instead. There is no better place to enjoy the Lake Como views – a place dreams have been known to come true (not only for those who throw a coin into our antique wishing well!).
