“Excellent Business Meeting Venue”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Attended a business meeting in here two years in a row. The addition of an extensive business complex does not detract from what is a beautiful original Italian villa set on the lake.

The grounds are extensive and well kept, the views stunning.

“Great Venue!”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

I went to a Rotaract event at Villa Erba and it was very enjoyable! The Villa was the perfect setting for the dinner! Beautiful view of the lake and I really enjoyed the old part of the villa! Very nice!

“Lago di Como lakeside beauty”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

This is a large, ornate villa - parts of which are at least five centuries old - in Cernobbio. It is less than a mile south of the more famous Villa d'Este. The Sunday public showing of the Villa d'Este's Concorso d'Eleganza is staged on the Villa Erba's lush grounds. The villa itself is used for tours, special events and private parties. It is gloriously rococo, and kept in great condition. The nicely manicured grounds - like a large, shady park - also feature a large glass-covered convention center. This is used for many conventions and professional gatherings. Public parking is off-site but adjacent to the property. A ferry to Como, Tavernola and Moltrasio stops nearby at regular times.

“A fabulous conference venue!”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 via mobile

We attended a conference in this venue and this is the best conferencr venue I have ever been to. Aside from the great content of the conference, the highlight for me was the social dinner inside Villa Erba 'mansion'. The setting was amazing, felt like back in time. The food was thoroughly enjoyable- Buffets consist of three sections with food/ produce from North, Mid and South Italy with wines from the three regions as well. I was so impressed and am totally in love with wine and dine of Italy!
