The beauty of a story that has come full circle
We decided to revive the place that our father was so fond of and bring his dream to life.
These were the words of the former owner’s daughters, who in the spring of 2018, gave the go ahead for the vital restoration works
The building was originally inaugurated at the end of the 19th century as a cellar for producing and selling wine; it was also used as a rest area.
In this inn, the theme of travel permeates throughout: the stories of the people that once lived and emotions are conveyed by the very materials of which the building is composed.
The marble floors date back to the beginning of the century. The materials came from Piedmont and have been fully restored to give them a second lease of life.
All the rooms boast iron beds, that have been sourced from France and northern Italy, apart from the black ones, which date back to the beginning of the last century. These were found in an ancient house on Lake Como with period decorations that were later restored.
The inn’s fireplaces are all original and now fully functional. They were built at the beginning of the 19th century inside the rest area, then walled up and rediscovered during the restoration works. The chandeliers come from Romagna and the expertly restored armchairs have been salvaged from ancient noble houses in Milan.
The curtains are made of French linen and the wallpapers are of Anglo-Saxon origin.
