I think this was the "FIND" of my travel this decade. I felt like I was living a segment of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous". The villa was built in the 14th century for a bishop but has been made into a posh hotel complete with a long tree-lined driveway, formal gardens, fountains and statuary. It is not visible from the street below and I do not recall any signage out front. We had viewed the street entrance from Google Maps so we were familiar with the surroundings and knew what to look for but still came up to the "wrong" entrance first. GPS definitely helps too. There is a big iron fence and gate to maneuver in order to gain entrance. This jewel is just minutes outside Milan and is easily accessible from the autostrada motorway. Romantic, resplendent with ornate details everywhere, hand-painted art on the ceilings, crystal chandeliers, this 5 star property was affordable luxury at it's best. Breakfast is included and can be enjoyed indoors or outside on the shady patio. Great service, excellent and warm staff, you just won't want to leave. There is a rather large covered pavilion on the grounds that is ideal for many types of events. Go ahead, splurge just a little. You won't regret thisl
