Palazzo Del Vice Re
Palazzo del Vice Re is located in Lezzeno, a small town perched on the shores of Lake Como. Set in a centuries-old palace, the hotel combines old world charm, like original 17th-century ceiling frescoes, with modern comforts, including carefully crafted food-and-wine tastings. Views from here take in the lake as well as the wooded island of Isola Comacina and the sprawling Villa del Balbianello.
Each of the five rooms has its own unique style that reflects the character and history of the building. The Palazzo del Vice Re also has its own private bathing area with a small pebble beach, loungers and a dock where guests can relax, read or swim.

No two walls or ceilings are alike in the hotel's five rooms (three apartments, one junior suite and one deluxe double room). Although this centuries-old palace has been renovated several times, the property retains its historic features, including original ceiling frescoes. Guests will find fine Italian textiles on the windows and beds along with antique furniture in the contemporary bathrooms and kitchens. Internet access is complimentary and the rooms also have air conditioning.
The hotel is located in Lezzeno, a sleepy little traditional town on the shores of Lake Como. Lezzeno has a small selection of local restaurants and bars and Bellagio is just a short bus or taxi ride away if you'd like a livelier evening.
Food and drink
An indulgent breakfast buffet is served every morning in the elegant Sala Giunone hall. In the evenings, the bar serves drinks and cocktails and you'll find a handful or restaurants and bars in the nearby town. For a wider selection, Bellagio is just a short bus or taxi ride away.
Facilities and activities
Palazzo del Vice Re has a private dock on Lake Como near a small pebbled beach for swimming. There are loungers and all-weather sofas for guests. The private terrace is located along a small pathway which surrounds the lake and is around a ten-minute walk from the property.
A stay at Palazzo del Vice Re feels more like being in a house than a hotel. Although there are not too many facilities on the property, we like it as an intimate getaway for those looking to stay in a traditional village on Lake Como.
