Steeped in centuries of history, Villa Sardagna dates from the 18th century. Named after the noble family of Sardagna, the villa became the primary residence for Baron Sardagna after his marriage to the Countess Calvi at the end of the 19th century.
Kept as a private family residence until 1981, left abandoned for almost 15 years, the owner bought the villa in 1995 and set about the monumental task of restoring it to its former beauty, turning it into the luxury and exclusive venue that it is today.
The 20-year project not only took in the building itself but also the surrounding park. A labour of love, the villa was dismantled from roof down and restored with passion and precision, using original materials and traditional methods wherever possible.
The 20-year long restoration project had the owner scour the whole of Italy for period furniture.
The result is an eclectic yet harmonious mix of authentic and original pieces mixed with personal style, including a rare Bluthner piano from 1865 that sits in the fireplace hall.
Fabrics have been carefully chosen to reflect the elegance of the era, so expect silks, linens, velvets and hand woven rugs on the original terracotta tiled floors.
A special mention should be given to the stunning Murano chandelier collection that dates from the 1900’s.
Works of art of unparalleled quality, the luxury chandeliers add the finishing touch to the rooms.
