THE HARMONY OF TIME AND NATURE
In the Park, there are centuries-old trees that testify to the flow of time and the permanence of Villa Bissiniga.
Villa Bissiniga is the right place for an eno-gastronomical vacation on the shores of the lake or a romantic weekend where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset while sipping a glass of claret from the high terrace.
OF VILLA BISSINIGA
The first construction of Villa Bissiniga came to life in 1410 in the hamlet of Renzano, just outside the hamlet and near the river.
A wealthy family of Salodian landowners gradually bought all the land east of Renzano that thinned down to the shores of the lake. Huge soils able to give a strong income above all based on oil and wine and fruit.
Since then, 600 years later, the house still dominates the hill, albeit with some tweaking to the “wrinkles” of the time and some changes of owners.
At each change of family a new wing was built and then the Villa grew larger and larger and reflected the different characters of its inhabitants; who favored the growth of centuries-old plants and those who embellished them with statues and fountains, who adorned them with frescoes related to the daily life of a bourgeois and country villa and who increased the richness of the furnishings or the number of animals in the park.
In 1720 the villa underwent a radical restoration with the incorporation of a new lot: what today is the kitchen. With the subsequent owners, the house was completed with a frescoed hall for parties and receptions. It is the noble period, of pomp and power.
Today’s owners bought the property forty years ago and in 2007, the Bortolotti and Bellini families decided to donate the old splendor to the old house, starting a conservative restoration that would last over time: new anti-seismic foundations, new slabs, fortification of unsafe walls , remaking of the roofs respecting and leaving every stone in its place because they are convinced that such ancient stones deserve to remain where they have always been even in a more modern context.
Nothing of the 600 years lived by the Villa has been lost. Everything has been restored to its former glory. Now it is time for new projects and in fact, 2 internal masonry halls have been renovated and above all, a phyto-organic natural pool has been built that uses Bissiniga water and with a prominent role of aquatic vegetation.
The ancient and historic property now enjoys that special charm that surrounds avant-garde projects that have the environment and its sustainability at heart.
In addition to the natural pool, the Villa is already equipped with photovoltaic panels, solar panels, a large wood-burning stove that uses the woods of the Park at zero km and above all without disturbing the territory. Electricity comes only from renewable sources and the management of all the Villa’s operations strictly follows a separate collection system and avoids waste in all its forms – many small gestures for the good of all.
