VILLA CLAUDIA DEL POZZO
Villa Claudia was a wedding present from Ferdinando Arborio, Duke of Sartirana, Marquis of Breme, to his wife Luisa Dal Pozzo della Cisterna, in 1827. It was their home when residing on Lake Maggiore and still belongs to the Dal Pozzo d’Annone family, who have striven to maintain intact its original distinctive style.
The family coat of arms is formed by a well, supported by 2 dragons.
The well was the original symbol representing the family name. It is said that the Dal Pozzo Family dates back to roman times, when they were known as “a puteo” o “de puteo” which would translate as “of the well” or “appertaining to the well”. It was later, in the second century a.c., that the two dragons were added to the well.
The coat of arms thus formed and still utilised by the Family represents two dragons drinking from the well, and signifies that they are in fact protecting the well so that its water never becomes muddy. This is reflected in the Family motto “Turbida nunquam” which translates as never let anything be less than crystal clear.
The reception rooms are furnished with important paintings, antique furniture and elegant fittings reminiscent of grand English houses. Guests are transported back to an era of elegance and leisure and the surrounding terraces, with their magnificent views over the Lake, reinforce this magical feeling. Receptions can also held around the pool area, which adds to the feeling of exclusivity created by the sole use of this beautiful location. The exceptionally beautiful scenery, the careful attention to detail and a first class catering service all combine to offer guests an unique experience at all times.
The Villa has also an equipped private beach and a mooring dock so that guests can come and go with boats of different sizes.
Villa Clauida is by far the perfect place for a stay in exclusive and absolute discretion with personalized services that will satisfy all your needs. You will enjoy in all the rooms and the four living rooms at home.
VILLA RUSCONI CLREICI
Villa Rusconi-Clerici is located in Verbania on the Piedmont shore of Lake Maggiore. A beautifully preserved late 19th century house with an English-style garden, it faces the Borromean Gulf with a magnificent view of the famous islands.
Villa Rusconi-Clerici offers a complete, high class organisation of receptions, weddings, conventions and special events. A beautiful pavilion for receptions has been erected in the middle of the garden, a graceful wrought iron structure in the style of the imposing greenhouses of the late 19th century. The pavilion has a variable capacity, seating from 50 to a maximum of 400 guests.
Receptions can also be arranged in the atmospheric old cellars of the villa, with their terracotta vaults, antique statues, granite pillars and rocaille walls. Later in the evening the party can move to the old kitchen for a pizza or other specialities baked in the antique bread oven.
