CastaDiva Resort & Spa is a full-scale resort worthy of Lake Como's glamorous image

Known for its lavish private villas and celebrity cachet, Lake Como is one of Italy's most enticing holiday destinations. With the arrival of CastaDiva Resort & Spa, the region also has a full-scale resort worthy of its glamorous image. The former home of soprano Giuditta Pasta, the property features 73 guest rooms in seven villas, as well as an additional pair of private villas for those who want the at-home-on-Lake Como experience complete with on-call chef and butler. Not only does the swimming pool float dramatically on the lake, it is transformed into a fountain paired with Italian opera music at night. Rounding out the appeal of this singular destination are botanical gardens, a gorgeous spa, fine dining at L'Orangerie (with a menu that offers a modern approach to local culinary traditions) and activities that range from private cooking classes to exclusive Ferrari driving experiences.
