Villa Mantegazza is steeped in local history and to this day is still owned by the same family having been passed through generations. The original owner was the artist who painted stunning frescoes and paintings inside and out for villa D'Este. Built in an eclectic, yet quintessentially Italian style the villa recalls many details from earlier periods and is filled with stunning furniture in heavy carved wood.
Villa Mantegazza sits in a quiet road and from the road can barely be seen. To the front there is a private garage to park your car. Through an iron gate you immediately enter the lovely gardens that are well maintained in a classical style. Along the stone path you pass the raised terrace area with table and chairs then through the gorgeous pergola covered in fruit bearing vines that winds its way along the garden to the house. The gardens are a lovely place to relax and enjoy the sun as they are very private and peaceful.
