About Us

Villa Pliniana a magical venue for private events and weddings.

Villa Pliniana by Sereno Hotels is a luxurious and historical villa located in the town of Torno, on the banks of Lake Como. Villa Pliniana is managed by Sereno Hotels and is less than one mile away from the new il sereno, lago di como.

An intermittent source first described by Plinius the Young (hence the name) flows through the Villa and into the lake.

Built in 1573, over the centuries the site of Villa Pliniana has been visited by many artists, scientists and monarchs such as Leonardo da Vinci, Paolo Giovio, Lord Byron, Foscolo, Shelley, Stendhal, Fogazzaro, Liszt, Bellini, Rossini, Volta, Joseph II of Austria, Napoleon, Queen Margherita of Savoy.

Poet Percy Shelley describes Villa Pliniana in a letter to a friend in 1818:"This lake exceeds anything I ever beheld in beauty [...] But the finest scenery is that of the Villa Pliniana so called from a fountain which ebbs and flows every three hours, described by the younger Pliny, which is in the courtyard. [...] The scene from the colonnade is the most extraordinary, at once and the most lovely that eye ever beheld. On one side is the mountain, and immediately over you are clusters of cypress-trees of an astonishing height, which seem to pierce the sky. Above you from among the clouds, as it were descends a waterfall of immense size, broken by the woody rocks into a thousand channels to the lake. On the other side is seen the blue extent of the lake and the mountains speckled with sails and spires [...]".

Today Villa Pliniana by Sereno Hotels has been restored to its former spendor thanks to an architectural conservation works which combined the preservation of the original structure with modern architectonic solutions.

Innovations include a SPA and a helisurface.

Guests of Villa Pliniana by Sereno Hotels enjoy the enchantment of its nature, the mystery of its history and its unique privacy, one of the greatest luxuries of our times.

Best of the Best

Pliny the Younger once described an unusual, rhythmic water spring on grounds near Lake Como; later, Leonardo da Vinci studied the phenomenon. After an extraordinary villa was built on the grounds in 1573, its owner named it “Villa Pliniana” after the Roman senator. Today, on 18 acres of parkland on the banks of Lake Como, the villa is still splendid. It comprises 19 bedrooms in four spacious apartments (each with kitchen) and three villas. Period furnishings and artworks abound; modernities include an indoor pool and spa, a helisurface and a private boat dock. Perfect for weddings and reunions, the property is rented as a whole.

Hotel Tip

Guests enjoy privileges at nearby Il Sereno, including access to its private beach and 60-foot-long freshwater infinity pool suspended over the lake.
