The elegance and majesty are tipical of Lake Como and breathtaking. According to the historical sources originally Villa Erba was a monastery in the XV century. Later the property was bought by the Erba’s aristocrat family and used as the holiday house where to spend the summer months.
At the beginning of the 1900 the new villa was built and here one of the sons of the family was born, the famous Luchino Visconti.


In 1986 the property was sold to a company specialized in organizing exibitions and conventions.
