About the property

The Palazzo Ronchelli guests live the fascinating thrill of staying in a corner of the past.

The palace dates back to 1587 the transformation of a fortified structure existing in 1400, in "house hunting" for local nobles Visconti - Sforza of Milan.

The building, that is still accurately restored, he belonged to the wife of the painter Giovan Battista Ronchelli (1715/1788, visible frescoes in the Palazzo Estense, Villa Recalcati, Villa della Porta Bozzolo); it retains the atmosphere of warm elegance and harmony of composition typical of the homes of the '700 Lombard.

The entire structure, with its classic architectural lines of the time, makes a fine show of porticoes, vaulted semicircular colonnades, marble fireplaces, living rooms with tiled floors, frescoes and coffered ceilings. In the court of access towers majestically a wisteria that was born with the construction of the villa in 1597, is considered among the oldest in Europe: in the spring its branches, which are woven on the facade to cover an ancient sundial, you play the flowering clusters of infinite shades of purple.

Ronchelli Palace is located in the center of the Valcuvia, in the ancient village of Castel Cabiaglio that saw its origins in Roman times and where in 1889 came to light artifacts, coins and tombs containing urns.

The village overlooks sunny and cool in front of the mountain range of Campo dei Fiori which gives its name to the Regional Park.

The country, not cut from the main road, but perched at 600 mt. height and dominating the valley, it is an ideal place for quiet and relaxing holiday, while allowing for a short drive to reach interesting tourist places such as Lake Maggiore cultural Luino Laveno or splendid artistic heritage as Villa Porta Bozzolo to Casalzuigno or Villa Panza in Varese.

There are countless hiking trails departing from the village which wind through ancient oaks, chestnut, hazel, ferns and cyclamen.
