As soon as you arrive at Villa Principe Leopoldo, and enter the elegant hall that leads to a magnificent terrace with view of the lake, the genuine beauty of each incredible detail becomes evident.
In an atmosphere that marries cosy warmth with five-star service, each facet of the experience is designed to amaze guests and make them feel at home. Crowning glory of the Relais & Châteaux-affiliated Villa is the Principe Leopoldo Restaurant, led by Executive Chef Cristian Moreschi, lauded by the Michelin Guide as being «truly talented in creating dishes of the highest quality». Five-star cuisine created with passion, in which each product is the result of careful selection, local research and preparation based on a knowledge of raw materials gathered over time.
The villa prides itself on its extremely professional service, which is overseen by two experienced maîtres-sommeliers: Claudio Recchia and Gabriele Speziale, who for more than 30 years have inspired guests to join them on a memorable enogastronomic journey.
Treating yourself to a lunch or dinner in this exceptional location, formerly an imperial residence, is undoubtedly a unique experience. The views from the large terrace, each day slightly different, stretch out just like a scene from a magnificent painting. You feel surrounded by elegance and nature, while the gulf of Lugano and encircling mountains embrace the Villa in all its beauty.
