What you should know about this villa

Amenities and special features of this villa

Charm and enchantment. There are no other words to describe the atmosphere of this extraordinary historic building, born in the mid-1800s from the amalgamation of several buildings dating back to different historical periods. The building, known as the "House of Lions" for the paintings that decorate the facade and for the statues placed in the garden, is already striking from the outside, with the graceful surrounding wall and the two symmetrical chapels that can be read by those who pass in the street. After the entrance, a courtyard-garden opens up to the view that leads to the large porch of the house. The building is spread over 4 floors, and there is a garden with direct access to the extraordinary cellars. The entrance to the main floor opens onto a suggestive frescoed corridor that ends with a terrace overlooking the hilly landscape and the Alps. The corridor leads to the majestic reception hall, to the dining room and to a series of rooms overlooking the garden. Upstairs the 10 bedrooms reveal a wise taste, the result of a conservative restoration. A delightful veranda with panoramic terrace completes the floor. In the basement there is an ancient kitchen of medieval origins, which has remained intact over time, with vaulted ceiling and slate floor. The north-west wing of the building, originally without attics, has been transformed into a bright studio overlooking the various floors. The cellars lend themselves to hosting an indoor swimming pool accessible from the house and from the garden, which can also be accessed from a secondary entrance that leads to an area that can be used as a garage. The architectural peculiarity of the property and the splendid location make it ideal for tourist accommodation, venue for exhibitions and events, co-housing, but also to be used as representative house.
