Lake Como, in Northern Italy, is a storied destination that plays host to some of the most opulent lakefront properties in the country. Villa D’Este has been the undisputed hotel of choice for jetsetters in Lake Como since it was turned from a private mansion into a resort in 1873. The hotel has three pools on the property, the most beautiful of which is their pool on the lake. Floating on the lake (and with a built in Jacuzzi), the views of the lake and surrounding hills overwhelm you.
What to order poolside? The Sundeck Pool Bar serves light fare like sandwiches and salads. The pasta of the day is the way to go, as it’s seasonal and always changing. Order a refreshing cocktail from the Terrace Bar.
