CastaDiva Resort is the only 5-star luxury hotel in the Lake Como area that is open all year-round.
Villa Roccabruna, built in the 18th century, soon became the favorite destination of aristocrats looking for peace and fairy-tale landscapes; today it is the heart and soul of the CastaDiva Resort. Strong in an unmatched beauty, Lake Como reveals its charm gradually leading the guest from one wonder to another. Even before art took to competing to enhance its natural beauty, the Lario (the area surrounding Lake Como) had always been renowned for its loveliness, glorified by poets and made famous by ancient and modern prose writers alike. History echoes throughout its gardens, while the stunning villa, featuring an eclectic and Renaissance style, brings us back to the time when opera singer Giuditta Pasta, who inspired Vincenzo Bellini, lived there. At the villa the composer, enchanted by the lake landscape between Moltrasio and Blevio, wrote his two greatest works, "Norma" and "La Sonnambula", that were first played by Giuditta Pasta, the real Casta Diva of the hymn to the moon that Bellini wrote on the romantic shores of Lake Como.
