Forts, Castles and a Bolzano villa with a time-honored character
South Tyrol in the Italian Alps has been attracting crowds of people for thousands of years - the sight of the sublime mountain chains has given many a place of worship. As the provincial capital of South Tyrol, both German and Italian are recognized as official languages, making
the purchase of a property in this landmark
particularly attractive to those who speak these languages.
Bolzano, an attractive location for a property
The landscape around Bolzano could be from a medieval movie, full of chivalry and romanticism - worthy of a
spacious property or a noble villa
. The city lies in a basin, which is enclosed by mountain ranges on three sides. What' striking is the high number of castles and fortresses in this area, which is historically given by the advantageous defense location within the alpine regions. Thus the Haselburg perches above the district of Haslach on a steep slope. Siegmundskron Castle - one of the larger structures with solid masonry and majestic Bergfried - is located on the western border of Bozen and hosts some hiking exhibitions and museums. The castle of Maretsch, on the other hand, is situated in the middle of the city on a flat surface not far from the center. It currently serves as a conference center and state archive.
Fragments of the Middle Ages in this Bolzano villa
The villa, which Engel & Völkers Italy would like to present to you in this article, also exudes the spirit of days gone by. Built around the year 1600 and restored extensively several times since,
the villa with three floors
awaits among other things with a walk-in wardrobe, a Jacuzzi, four bedrooms and six bathrooms. The mixture of modernity and historic architecture is perfectly reflected in the wonderfully renovated wine cellar, the large farmhouse with a traditional oven and the old cedar from the past centuries in the 1000 sq meter garden. Anyone who enjoys the wide panoramic view up to the edge of the talc boiler on the roof terrace of this property is a real castle owner.The South Tyrolean villa is equally flamboyant with medieval charm and modern finesse in a literally enchanting environment. Here in Bozen, which has experienced centuries-long moving history, is where you could start the next chapter of your life.
Right where many old castles and fortresses rest on steep cliffs or on gentle hills in the surroundings of Bolzano, is where you could soon call an ancient villa your own.
