Villa Feltrinelli

Villa Feltrinelli stands just a few hundred metres north of Gargnano, and is the towns most famous historic building. Built between 1892 and 1899, some attribute its design to Francesco Solmi, and others to Alberico Belgiojoso. Surrounded by magnificent grounds, it is encompassed by a number of other buildings which were once used to house the groundskeepers and farm hands, who took care of the stables and the lemon greenhouses. The façade overlooking the lake is the most sumptuous part of the villa, whilst the park behind the building includes rare and valuable trees. Between October 1943 and April 1945, Villa Feltrinelli was the residence of Benito Mussolini, who lived there with his family. Nowadays the building has become a luxurious Villa-Hotel: the Grand Hotel a Villa Feltrinelli.
