LET'S GO BACK TO LAKE ISEO WITH DANILO AND DISCOVER THE VILLA WHERE FENAROLI BUILT HIS OWN CORNER OF HEAVEN


On the shores of Lake Iseo, at the foot of the Alps and right in front of Monte Isola, 16th-century manor villa with botanic park. The building, over 1,500 sqm, is the typical noble villa with ample frescoed halls, huge windows and direct view over the lake. With a total of 9 bedrooms (and the possibility of creating more) the property is well suited both as a private residence and as an accommodation business.

Designed by the botanist and agronomist Luigi Fenaroli (1899 – 1980), the botanic garden is a unique testimony of his studies: he planted here unique plants that grown nowhere else in Lombardy, among which bamboo, camphor, giant redwood and ginkgo biloba. Of particular interest is the presence of kiwi trees (Actinidia): Fenaroli was, in fact, the first academic trying to cultivate this species in Italy, importing ten springs from New Zealand.

The experiment, conducted in 1960 in collaboration with the Botanique Garden of Sorbonne, was a huge success as testified by the fact that Italy is nowadays the world’s second greatest produced of kiwis, behind China, the country from which the tree originally came from.
