A Majestic Lake Front Villa
Villa Batel (also know by this name) has an enchanting history of a ballerina named Maria Taglione who is the most famous owner of this Villa. The Italian-French ballerina Marie Talione (1804-1884) revolutionized ballet with her graceful, almost evanescent dancing, introducing the spirituality of Romantic poetry and literature to the world of dance.
I was intrigued by the beauty of the villa, as well as the history. For many years I saw the beautiful property from the Lake; and finally I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely owners and visiting this magnificent property in 2015. The gates to the Estate open to a winding road leading down to two lakeside villas. The property is one of the largest on the lake and is surrounded by beautifully imposing & mature landscapes, made up of many acres of mature flowers and trees. grounds of the property, as you can see are quite magical! Among the gallery of photos, you may notice a photo including a sailboat. I took this one Spring day, when I visited the property. The owners are very kind and the staff welcoming, with bright smiles.
There are two Villas on the property, the original property of Villa Battel (the ballerina) and another Villa across the path. The twin Villas has in its own courtyard. And, from this courtyard there is a door leading to the town of Blevio. The properties accentuate one another, each very separate, but ideal for larger events. The terraces which are accessible from the main Villas first floor Living areas open up to the Lake. They are expansive and comfortable areas where you can enjoy meals and aperatives, as you enjoy the serenity of the lake breezes. The birds gracefully float above bringing serenity to this already magical atmosphere. In the evening, you can enjoy the sunset skies, as they reflect soft pastel colors off from the Lake. In the distance, you can see Moltrasio and the other Villas nestled in the hills.
