The villa has been a hub of great art, elegance, and family for generations. Though the estate remains strictly private, it serves as an exquisite location for private receptions and cocktail parties.

A Serene Retreat by Lake Como, Villa Gastel is A Place of History and Elegance
The ground-floor enfilade of formal salons are adorned with neoclassical frescoes, ancestral portraits and statues, tapestries, and antiques. Of particular note is a white Venetian neo-Gothic dining suite, gifted by Luchino Visconti to his sister. The vaulted kitchen and laundry rooms, untouched since the days of the convent, feature walls of cupboards housing immaculately arranged bed and table linens, as well as a multitude of colorful breakfast services kept under protective cloths. Upstairs, a labyrinth of corridors leads to country-house bedrooms, tastefully decorated by Gastel. One wing houses small rooms that were once occupied by a community of nuns until 1940.
