La Dolce Vita

In the classic Villeggiatura, time slows to an anachronistic pace, you find yourself gradually moving from doing to simply being. This sweet idleness known as dolce far niente is a quintessentially Italian practice, something the rest of the world eyes with envy. At Passalacqua, it is less about being lazy than about living in the moment, entirely free from the pressure of schedules and expectations. Take a dip in the pool or book a boat ride, play tennis or a round of bocce, but in your own time. Arrange for a treatment at the spa, a yoga session under the magnolias or an excursion further afield, if you can tear yourself away from the view. Join the other guests for a movie night under the stars or opt instead for a solitary walk in the woods. At Passalacqua, experiences are there for the taking whenever the mood strikes.

Dolce far niente

Literally “sweet doing nothing”. A phrase used to describe living in the moment; a heightened reality when time slows, and you admire life and its simplicity: sweet idleness.

Lago

At Passalacqua, Lake Como isn’t just a pretty face, there to be admired. It is literally at your feet, ripe for the taking. We invite you to make your way through the park to our secluded, private pier, whether it’s for a quick dip in the water or a long morning swim. Alternatively, you might climb aboard a vintage motor launch from Como’s legendary boatyard Cantiere Colombo and take to the lake in style in our taxi boat Giumello or the leisure craft Didi. For the water sports enthusiasts among us, there are kayaks, water skis and stand-up paddleboards to choose from.

Terra

Sometimes the best way to let your soul soar is to keep both feet firmly planted on the ground. Passalacqua has seven acres of mature gardens positively bursting with Nature’s bounty. The choice is yours: a secluded corner or burbling fountain for quiet contemplation, perhaps a pleasant pastime to share with friends and family. Enjoy the panoramic swimming pool or the open-air gym in the olive grove. Practice your serve and volley on the tennis court or the tricky volo shot on the bocce court. Browse the seasonal goodies in the orchard, the citrus garden or the orto and visit our friendly hens in the pollaio. And as the sun starts to set, pick a lemon straight off the tree for your evening G&T.

Sapori

Food, glorious food is one of Passalacqua’s best features – a rich smorgasbord of delicacies, some cultivated right on the estate, as well as frequent culinary happenings in our kitchens. Guests are invited to find a farm-to-table tasting or a cooking experience to try, to help yourselves to the vintage glass sweet jars or to sample the creamy goodness of homemade gelato from our local gelateria – the possibilities are literally endless…

Benessere

Our Spa occupies a world all its own in the Palazz. When we discovered the soaring vaults and romantic columns of the ground floor hall, we knew we had the perfect relaxation room – but that is not the spa’s only surprise… Our treatment program is designed around some unexpected ingredients inspired by the lake as well as the renowned Dr Barbara Sturm range. And for the biggest surprise of them all, spa guests can take a secret staircase to our thermal area in the 18th-century tunnels and enjoy the steam room and the sauna nestled in rock-hewn caves.
