The House

The Villa  consistng of two adjacent buildings, the first dating back to the early 1700s that hosted Garibaldi and the second, built in the early 1900s as the main residence of the family that has always owned the house.

The main house is on three levels for a total of about 600 sqm and is divided into the living room, the dining room with a fireplace and the large kitchen featuring decorated tile floors typical of the 1960s.

The important central staircase leads to the upper floors in the sleeping area where the four bedrooms with original terracotta floors and the two bathrooms show off.

From the garden level and through an internal staircase you reach the area dedicated to the cellars. The vaulted cellars are partly dug into the rock and partly with windows towards the garden below the stunning  terrace at the level of the living area.

The firts property is always arranged on three levels but staggered from the adjacent part of the house due to the different heights of the lower ceilings. It was typical of the era in which the house was built.

The house that is divided into the living area on the ground floor and the five bedrooms on the upper floors is characterized by Moltrasio stone and terracotta floors as well as the old and large fireplace.

In the garden you can find the small chapel that still retains the old original holy water and the study of the Podestà of Moltrasio.

The garden of about 4,000 sqm., with crags all overlooking the panorama of the lake, hosts one hundred centenary olive trees. This olive grove allows the production of a very tasty and precious oil and named on “il Gambero Rosso “. In the small bamboo forest where a small rustic is hidden, it is dedicated to the large vegetable garden and orchard.

In this property each window is a frame of nature, a frame of wonderful colors and lights.

The Villa needs renovation works to recover its ancient splendor. Currently the property has two parking spaces inside the park near the road from which you can reach the entrance portal with a pleasant walk among the olive trees.


From the villa and through a nice walk in the typical narrow road it is possible to reach the upper center of the town with its Lounge bars, the “old” and typical trattorias or go towards the lake to the Lido and the elegant restaurants.

The Village has very ancient origins, copper artifacts from 2000 BC have been found, other findings testify to the presence on the territory before the Gauls 200 BC. and later the Romans.

The period of maximum splendor was around the year 1100 thanks to the extraction of the Moltrasina stone, a material used by the Comacini Masters for the construction of churches and basilicas. In 1400 Moltrasio allied itself with nearby Como, a century later it suffered a sacking by the inhabitants of Torno, in 1630 a bad epidemic of plague decimated the population.

The sunny position, the mild climate and the splendid villas make Moltrasio an ideal place for vacation and stay.
