Villa d’Este – Where Hollywood Gets Married

We have to say, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are one of our favorite Hollywood couples. Probably because they seem so not Hollywood; more like old friends from college. Make no mistake though, this is a powerhouse duo, with a marriage that is #couplesgoals. So let’s take it back to where it all began — their wedding day on Lake Como at Villa d’Este.

The Hotel: Villa d’Este, Italy

The Details

Located in the town of Cernobbio, Villa d’Este is one of the classic grande-dame hotels on Lake Como. The villa was built in the 16th century as the home of the Cardinal of Como. It remained a private home of a slew of aristocrats for a few hundred years. In the late 1800s, the property became a luxury hotel.  It is one of the oldest hotels in Lake Como.

Villa d’Este defines iconic; it was one of the first luxury hotels in the world. Right from the time it opened in the 1800s, this is where royalty, Hollywood actors, and billionaires came to play.  The hotel is set within a 25-acre private park. Its most famous feature is probably the floating swimming pool right on Lake Como.

Whether or not you stay at Villa d’Este, no visit to Lake Como is complete without dining at the hotel’s outstanding restaurant. Just ask George and Amal Clooney, who are frequent visitors.  Villa d’Este’s culinary program offers some of the finest dining in all of Italy. It’s also the most elegant of scenes. And it’s the right way to start your marriage, like Emily Blunt and John Krasinski did; they’re still going strong after eleven years. A wedding in Villa d’Este will never go out of style.
