Amenities and special features of this apartment

The evocative atmosphere of Besozzo Castle, dating back to the 15th century and which hosted Giuseppe Garibaldi within its walls, is the exclusive location of this elegant apartment with swimming pool. The Castle, which bears the name of Adamoli family, their residence in the 19th century, sits in a dominant position in Besozzo old town and is characterized by a beautiful Renaissance-style entrance portal and an elegant courtyard with eighteenth-century decorations and balconies. Traces of Renaissance graffiti decorations can be seen in the rear wing of the beautiful courtyard. On the main floor of this castle, Giuseppe Garibaldi slept several times in 1863, hosted by General Adamoli, and later also Giuseppe Mazzini. The façade has been recently renovated in order to preserve its historical charm. The apartment for sale is on the first floor, with high coffered ceilings and original flooring. The characteristic windows of that historical time lend brightness and elegance to the rooms of this house. The wide hall that still boasts some period furniture pieces overlooks the internal courtyard. A hallway leads to the sleeping area with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, overlooking the centuries-old park that surrounds the property. Inside the park there are paths and walkways enriched by flowers and plants, which offer a colourful spectacle during spring time, while surrounded by architectural details and sculptures preserved in niches carved into the rock. At the foot of the Renaissance tower there is the private swimming pool with solarium of the Castle. The property includes a vaulted cellar and a parking space inside the courtyard.
