lovely small village home!

  • 5 of 5

Such a perfect spot to land after our flight from the US to Milan. Miranda made us feel so welcome! Our son slept on the main floor, we slept upstairs. Perfect small european kitchen with everything we needed for home-cooked meals. Lovely restaurant cafe in this charming small town. We even came back for a few days' stay later during our trip, did our laundry, hung to dry on Miranda's clothesline. Really such perfect and unique spot!!

  • 5 of 5

"Our recent stay in February 2010 was wonderful. The fact that the studio does not have a television makes it a perfect retreat. The nearby woods are great for long or short hikes, as is the Campo del Fiori Park. Nearby Varese is a gorgeous historical the region is much more than just its lakes! Miranda is a wonderful, kind and very helpful host and her studio - built and designed by her husband - is not only well-equiped and comfortable but unexpectedly imaginative!"

About Miranda Baratelli Ostini

A lady who likes good food.

Miranda Baratelli Ostini purchased this apartment in 1976

Why Miranda Baratelli Ostini chose Cuirone

Cuirone was the holiday resort of Giorgio my husband's family for many generations. We bought our home because it was unique and we have carefully preserved. We moved here from Milan many years ago and in 1987 we founded a cultural association to treat the memory and preservation of Cuirone and its history. We had no children, but our house has always welcomed many nephews and friends.

George had his studio here.

At the top of the atelier has made ​​Baubaus House. The name is a play and a long history that was inspired by an exhibition with other friends and artists. We decided to rent Baubaus House because we like to meet new people who appreciate these simple places. After the death of George, I turned the atelier in the archive of the works of George and the association. Space Giorgio Ostini sometimes hosts the work of other artists, so it continues to live with his generous spirit.
