A collection of suites, apartments and small villas, Villa Pliniana
is one of the most private, exclusive stays in Lake Como. There are ballrooms of extravagant proportion inside, while outside the gardens meander along the lakefront in all their colorful glory. Take a note from Spotify chief executive Daniel Ek’s playbook (er, list?), and you can take over the villa for a wedding at this stunner of a spot with its frescoed walls and ceilings, stone walkways and lakefront waterfall serving as backdrops.
