CastaDiva Resort, Lake Como, Italy

March 31, 2016

 

The CastaDiva Resort & SPA is a five-star luxury resort located on the east side of Lake Como, in the lovely village of Blevio, only 5 km from Como and 65 km from Milano Malpensa International Airport.

 

The Resort consists of nine villas (including 2 Private Villas) with a total of 73 rooms 58 of them are suites and junior suites, surrounded by a luxuriant botanic park that boasts age-old trees of different species.


The majority of rooms have a full lake view, balcony or terrace. The villas are connected through roads, walkways and steps. 


CastaDiva is the only eco-friendly resort of the area, fully respecting the environment and meeting the highest standards of eco-sustainability: each building fulfills the most stringent environmental criteria, in full harmony with the natural setting that surrounds it. 

Villa Roccabruna

 


The heart and soul of the resort, Villa Roccabruna was erected in the 1797 by Madame Ribiere, an eccentric dressmaker from Paris who, legend has it, was very libertine by nature. 


It was later bought by soprano Giuditta Pasta, who wished to live in a house that looked like the place where she found success. She was the first soprano to play Norma, Vincenzo Bellini’s opera at La Scala Opera House in Milan, thus becoming the first “Casta Diva” of the Hymn to the Moon, written by Bellini.


The villa became the favourite destination of aristocrats like Bellini, Donizetti, Stendhal, Rossini and Manzoni. 
The old villa is now the core of the resort, providing main services and facilities such as the hall, antique salons, a reception & concierge desk, an American Bar and the SPA. It features ten suites – all with lake view. 


The name of every other Villa is inspired by the great female characters of Italian Opera. Following the paths that run along the gardens and waterfalls surrounding Villa Roccabruna, we find the villas Norma, Fiordiligi, Gilda, Leonora, Dorabella, Amina, Violetta and Isotta. 

 

The Private Villas


For those seeking the ultimate Lake Como experience guests are offered two magnificent Villas located within the grounds of the resort. All facilities and services of the Resort are available while ensuring the privacy and exclusivity that only a private villa can offer. 


Villa Amina 


Named after the female lead role in” La Sonnambula” (1831) composed by Vincenzo Bellini, Villa Amina promises a touch of sensuality, a jewel encased in ancient oak. 


The ground floor boasts a full bathroom, spacious living room with dining area, full day kitchen and living room with floor-to-ceiling windows opening to a terrace directly over the Lake. 


The top floor sees a magnificent bedroom with floor to ceiling windows directly in front of the bed and en-suite bathroom with a large round bathtub overlooking the lake and separate shower. 


This is the perfect place for a romantic escape. 

 

 

Villa Norma 


Named after the lead role of the homonymous Opera "Norma" (1831) composed by Vincenzo Bellini, Villa Norma is built in Neoclassical style, distributed over four floors.


The ground floor features large windows overlooking the lake, a full kitchen, separate dining room, living room and library with fireplace and one bathroom.
