Everyone from Roman generals to movie stars, has holidayed, at least once in their lives, on the Italian Lakes. And in Blevio, facing the calm waters of Lake Como, it’s easy to see why.
Here – or just a few steps away – you could be amazed by the magnificence of the “Teatro Sociale” Opera House. You could take to the water on a boat trip, stopping off at the pretty villages of Tremezzo and Bellagio. Or simply, you could take in the spectacular scenery from your lakeside country retreat.
From the backdrop of mountains to the classical villas that look over the shoreline, there’s an effortlessly graceful air about Blevio.
Standing out on the landscape of one of the world’s most beautiful lakes, you could admire CastaDiva Resort & Spa, that was once the residence of the 19th century opera singer Giuditta Pasta. Nowadays, an exclusive resort with lavishly decorated rooms and suites housed in nine separate villas, the latest hot property on the Italian Lakes. At the heart of the resort is Villa Roccabruna, that houses ten magnificent suites, stunning salons and a tantalising spa.
Staying here is endulging in a sublime mix of nature, beauty, architecture and 18th and 19th century Italian culture. An essential experience at CastaDiva Resort & Spa is to take a treatment in its unique spa. Chromotherapy showers, a Finnish sauna, Turkish bath, vertical Kneipp and Himalayan Salt room for halotherapy are all available for sheer indulgence. Relax on comfortable chaise longue, suspended on a glass floor over the 19th century dock. Or sit outside in the sun by the floating heated pool.
The romance of Lake Como and the pretty villages dotted along its shores are fundamental elements of such a luxurious stay, accompanyed by a visit to Villa Carlotta in the town of Tremezzo or Villa del Balbianello at Lenno, romantically reachable by boat.
The cherry on top of a dreamy holiday break, is, at the end of the day, returning to CastaDiva Resort & Spa for drinks on the view terrace, and indulging in a gourmet dinner in l’Orangerie restaurant, or perhaps experiencing the red carpet at “Teatro Sociale” in Como.
