For two weeks last December, Villa Serena was an important shoot location for Bild der Frau, the top women's magazine in Germany. It is in Villa Serena's tranquil and beautiful environment that the magazine's photo team worked on next summer's fashion stories.
Villa Serena's lobby, rooms, garden and its surrounding natural splendour will be the backdrop of most of the fashion photography featured in Bild der Frau between February and August 2013. The photographer Paul Mueller-Rode told us: "It was so easy to shoot here at this wonderful place. We had everything we needed - ocean, green and a nice guesthouse..."
Villa Serena has been used as a film and photography location by various American, French and German magazines, as well as some international TV series.
