Sumptuous Historic Villa with Wonderful Views
Villa Gina is an exquisite historic villa built in 1766 by an aristocratic Austrian family and named after its owner Gina. In the 20th century it belonged to the family of the famous Italian artist Baldassare Longoni whose paintings are still present in the villa, and the main street of the town is named after him.
In 2011 Villa Gina was completely renovated by the current owners. Precious details include stucco work, handmade floor tiles, frescoed walls, hand-made wallpaper, silk fabrics and marble. The villa is stocked with authentic objects of art: paintings by Italian artists, silk tapestries, antique furniture, and Murano glass chandeliers.
