Presentation

Castello di Grazzano, a 13th century castle full of history, surrounded by a magical garden in a beautiful valley.

The house

The castle dates back to the 13th century. It was used as a fortress and was originally built by the Visconti family, which were lords of Milan. Giuseppe Visconti proceeded to restore it to full splendour at the beginning of the 20th century. When that was not sufficient, he then built, not only a beautiful Italian garden, but an entire medieval-style village, around it, which now encircles the park.

The castle has a large entrance and a huge living room divided into two.  The living room has also a veranda with sun beds and big umbrellas for protection from the sun.

A castle surrounded by a magical italian garden

There is also a library with a large screen tv and cable as well as a stereo and an old large piano.  A fax and internet connection are available but unfortunately internet connection is slow, since we are in the countryside.

There are three dining rooms : one large one for staff, one small one (6 to 8 people) and one large one that seats around 12 or 14.  The small and large dining rooms are adjacent, so they can both be used for larger receptions.

In the park, about 100 metres from the veranda, guests can relax in the pool which is approximately 20 m long by 6 m wide. It is not fenced off and is equipped with a pool house.

The castle can welcome a total of 17 guests as well as some staff:
