Welcome to Isola Bella


It’s difficult to imagine that prior to its construction the island was little more than a chunk of rock inhabited by a handful of hardy fishing families. To this day, only 16 people live year-round on the island, but in summer the place looks like a scene from the Normandy landings of 1944, with countless vessels ferrying battalions of visitors to and fro. Construction of the villa and gardens was thought out in such a way that the island has the vague appearance of a vessel, with the villa at the prow and the gardens at the rear.
