“Here: the green Sirmio in the shiny lake smiles, flower of the peninsulas” Carducci recalls Sirmione, a small town of great tourist appeal due to its thermal waters and Roman remains, set in the splendid setting of Lake Garda.
And it is in the very tip of the Sirmione peninsula that we find Villa Cortine, whose name is linked to the Latin cortes (place of defense). Its origins are in fact Roman, it was found that it was a military garrison that, in 800 AD which gave way to a monastery, whose traces of the cloister and the church are still visible to the south of the hill. Even then the beauty of Lake Garda attracted visitors, including the Scala Family who, in 1259, built the castle to protect the small Sirmione community.
The name Villa Cortine is linked to Count Kurt Von Koseritz, who purchased the park of about 5 hectares in 1898, when he began construction work on the current villa. It also boasts a strict neoclassical style, with large columns supporting the facade. The interiors are decorated with very precious Veronese marbles, frescoes, stained glass windows and period furniture. Inaugurated as a luxury hotel in 1953, Villa Cortine is a place rich in history and harmonious beauty, perfect for celebrating your wedding.
Villa Cortine Palace is not only of timeless beauty, it is also a private place, the ideal setting for a completely personalized ceremony. The large park overlooking the lake offers a breathtaking view, and the private dock can accommodate an impressive supper, for example by organizing the space for dances, equipped with special lighting, or delighting guests with a fireworks display.
