An impressive historical villa that throughout the centuries has hosted international celebrities and noble families of high status, Pliniana is situated in a solitary cove between Torno and Faggeto Lario. Dating back to the sixteenth century, this precious palace has recently been restored to a luxury home that can accommodate up to 36 people.
The villa has been updated to the highest contemporary standards whilst it maintained the charm and historical details of the original design, designed by Patricia Urquiola.
The modern part of Pliniana combines majestically with the timeless frescoes, wood panels, terraces and the sixteenth-century fireplaces.
The highlight of the villa is the piano where Gioachino Rossini wrote the Opera ‘Tancredi’ in 1813, which still remained at the same spot where he once sat.

Two additional stand alone villas are located near the main villa.
Each suite features a satellite TV, internet connection and a safe, moreover, every suite is also equipped with a private kitchen and laundry room. The spa and the vast gardens offer the intimacy and space, coupled with the five-star service Hotels services of a luxury property.
