Villa Biondelli Wine & Suites
AGRIRELAIS IN franciacorta wine district
Villa Biondelli is a beautiful Italian estate dating from the 18th century located in the heart of the Franciacorta wine region, a few minutes from Lake Iseo, offering a timeless atmosphere, ideal for rest and relaxation. A perfect destination for nature lovers, Villa Biondelli is surrounded by a pristine park of 2 hectares and Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards that produce the finest Biondelli wines. Recently renovated to the highest standards in order to enhance its charm and timeless atmosphere, Villa Biondelli is now ready to be discovered by all those who appreciate fine wines, decor and interiors.
Since the 1940s Villa Biondelli has been chosen by Ambassador Giuseppe Biondelli of Piacenza and his wife Clementina of the Counts Maggi di Gradella as a summer residence for themselves and their descendants. Finally in Spring 2018, after a meticulous and respectful renovation, Villa Biondelli opened its doors to the public, now well equipped with state of the art facilities, to grant every guest who steps within its grounds the chance to lose track of time, to experience a dreamlike atmosphere of a bygone era with all modern comforts, as well as the opportunity to breathe the spirit in which the adventure of the Biondelli Cellars was born.
The Genie of the Lamp
the fairy tale in the fairy tale
During the Second World War, due to the air raids on Milan, the villa became home to the production of one of the first animated feature films of the history of cinema. Also dubbed in English and released on foreign markets with the title The Singing Princess, it was inspired from the story of the Genie of the Lamp about fifty years before the production of Aladdin animated movie by Walt Disney Pictures, which was derived, just as The Singing Princess from the tales of the One Thousand and One Nights.
