Our reception rooms

All of our reception rooms are situated on the ground floor and have decorated walls and ceilings, creating different and elegant atmospheres, where you can relax or host events and unique parties.

Dining room

The great chimney from the end of the eighteenth-century is a striking feature of this traditional country-house dining room, while the chafing-dish is the focal point of the breakfast table.

Sitting room

The paintings on the walls are entertaining and unusual: small men are busy picking fruit and vegetables larger than themselves, making them look almost like Lilliputian characters from the Po valley, providing the backdrop to the comfortable sofas.

Hobby room

The room houses a modern Italian billiard table and a precious neoclassical point counter.

Room Les Mariages

Situated at the base of the tower, with elegant eighteenth-century furniture, this is the perfect location for civil wedding celebrations.

Room Souvenirs d'Italie

The entrance to the Villa has landscapes recalling travels in Italy, musical instruments and dancers painted on the ceiling. Over the doors, there are decorations with interesting seventeenth-century family portraits.

Room Souvenirs du monde

Recollections of journeys in
Far East and Latin American countries,
framed in a trompe-l’oeil pergola
with numerous allusions which are still partly mysterious.

Napoleonic Room

On the walls there is a wall painting that was probably a homage to Napoleon by one of the owners at the beginning of the nineteenth-century. The antique ceiling is coffered.


The villa, a traditional landowner’s residence of a vast agricultural property, rises on an alluvial terrace of the River Oglio.

Its medieval origins are confirmed by the presence of a porch with baked clay columns and rounded off square capitals, adjacent to arches of the Renaissance period. It was partly transformed in the eighteenth-century, as was the small and intimate oratory dedicated to Saint Rocco.

The frescoes in the ground floor rooms show a predominance of nineteenth-century styles: vast marine and urban settings combined with musical references on the ceiling of the entrance hall, attributed to the Cremonese artist Giulio Motta (1787-1860). Panoramic landscapes are also found in the Souvenirs du monde room, framed in an elaborate trompe l’œil surround, and in the Napoleonic room, where they depict an episode of Napoleon Bonaparte’s arrival in Italy.
The most attractive room is the lounge, decorated with countless dwarfs busy picking gigantic fruits and catching enormous river shrimps, amidst a rich decoration of watermelons and pumpkins located over the fireplace. This imaginative scene celebrates the the abundance of fruits from the land.

The villa overlooks an 11,000 sq.mt. garden with a swimming pool and tennis court. The garden has been restored to its nineteenth-century layout, crossed by paths set at a lower level compared to the green areas and enclosed by a high wall. The park retains some large nettle trees, magnolias and yew-trees, a small brick pavilion and a lemon-house, which ends in a porch with a stone tank, probably used for fish farming.
