Clinged on the sweet and velvet-like hills of Brianza, Villa Calchi is a splendid sixteenth-century dwelling overlooking the spectacular natural reserve of Lake Sartirana, where nature still preserves its wild and proud essence.
The Villa, which was commissioned by Bartolomeo Calchi, governor of the Duchy of Milan under Ludovico il Moro, is an intimate, refined location, full of charm and at the same time endowed with each and every comfort. Thanks to its fine finishing, such as the original frescoes of 1515, the handmade terracotta floors, the ancient oak beams and the antique furnishings that harmoniously interpose with modern design elements, Villa Calchi is undoubtedly the ideal setting for an exclusive, prestigious and memorable wedding.
The spouses can choose to plan their wedding banquet in the room Sala delle Colonne, with its marvelous groin vault and its sumptuous frescoes expertly restored and depicting 24 columns with Corinthian capitals, which in the proportioning system recall the noblest and most cultured architectures of the Sforza age.
Or they can opt for Sala del Liocorno, with a square plan with an umbrella vault, decorated with frescoes representing the coats of arms of the Calchi and Caimi families, as well as numerous philosophical quotes and depictions of real and fantastic animals with hermetic significance.
On the ground floor, instead, there is Sala del Lago, a bright living room that can accommodate up to 130 people, with antique oak floor made from 1700s wooden beams and a wonderful view of the romantic terrace overlooking the lake. Sala del Lago is connected to the Sala d'Armi, a large 125 square meter barrel vaulted hall with handmade antique terracotta floors. The two rooms, Lago and Armi, are connected by a wide opening, that allows to create a single room with a capacity of 260 seats.
The terraces, which run on different levels for a total of 600 square meters, offer a spectacular view of the majestic garden and the vineyard that plunges into the lake of Sartirana and are the ideal spaces for an aperitif with buffet, islands or seated dinner settings. The luxuriant trees, the romantic ever-flowering bower and the colorful and scented flowerbeds of the large outdoor park, put together the perfect setting for an effective photo shoot.
Making the dreamlike atmosphere of Villa Calchi even more extraordinary is the guarantee of a highly qualified, competent, caring and careful staff taking care of every detail in order to make the most beautiful day of life truly unforgettable and unique.
