Fully restored medieval palazzo off the beaten track in Northern Italy. This beautiful stone residence in the village of Vogogna is one hour north of Milan and one hour south of Switzerland. Vogogna is listed in “Most beautiful small villages of Italy” because of its intact medieval town center and its proximity to Parco National Val Grande, the largest wilderness area in Italy. If you enjoy slow food, wine tasting, Alpine hiking, biking, historic sights, and just living at the Italian pace, you will find them all in abundance in the northern Piemonte.
The ground floor includes a fully equipped kitchen, a large living room with two balconies overlooking the pedestrian-only main street, a bedroom with a double bed, and a bath. On the second floor are two bedrooms with double beds, a large family room with a king and two single beds, and a bath.
All rooms are decorated to accentuate the original features of the ancient house while being mindful of modern comfort.
While in Vogogna, you can participate in the many cultural and sporting activities available in the lake district. Cable cars up the mountains, a small gauge train into Locarno, Lago Maggiore, and a natural hot spring spa are a few examples. When you are ready for a big city excursion, Milan and Turin are within easy reach.
A nearby caretaker is available to help you plan your stay. Maid service is available for an additional fee.
Please note, the villa is only rented between May 1 and October 15 each year. We are not able to accommodate rental requests outside this time frame.
