DescriptionThe southern coast of Lake Garda, with its gentle age-old rolling morainc hills and lush vegetation, where vineyards , fruit plantations and olive groves extend for miles and miles , is blessed by an all-year round mild climate.
It is here, in this marvelous context, that the Battle of Solferino and San Martino took place in 1859, resulting in the victory of the Franco-Sardinian Alliance against the Austrian Army. The Piedmontese troops guided by King Vittorio Emanuele II, allied with Napoleon and the French
troops, defeated the Austrian soldiers, thus annexing Lombardy to the kingdom of Sardinia.
The Tower of San Martino della Battaglia, a famous landmark of the territory, erected in 1880 and commemorating Vittorio Emanuele II and those who fought for Italian Unity, is a faithful neighbour and silent guardian to this luxury, historic villa, just a short distance from both the monumental grounds and the A4, Northern Italy's most important highway.
The property, dating back to the XVIIIth century, is nestled in the middle of a huge garden (over 6,000 sqm ), finely planted with olive trees and local essences to honour the spirit of the landscape and features a large private swimming pool.
The estate is composed of a main building plus a second smaller out-house with service rooms; the main house has two floors and comprises large and comfortable living rooms, an ample dining area , a big kitchen with annexed wine cellar and laundry room and features five bedrooms and five bathrooms.
The villa has been completely restored and costs have been no object; the refined taste of the owners has met perfectly with the building's history resulting in a union of modern luxury and cosy atmosphere.
The house has been finished with prestigious materials and elegant details including terra-cotta flooring throughout the house, whitened beamed ceilings, warm and bright colours and constitutes the perfect choice for those seeking a quiet and exclusive location - though very close to all facilities – and a classy stylish mansion.
