About
ADMISSION 2020: open every Sunday starting from Sunday, June 21. Among the most beautiful and majestic pleasure villas of Milan, Villa Arconati-FAR is heritage site of great historical, cultural and architectural value. The Villa - which together with its gardens is today the headquarters of the Augusto Rancillo Foundation - is situated in the Parco delle Groane, in the hamlet of Castellazzo di Bollate, beside a rural village and the church of San Guglielmo. Considered to be an Italian revisitation of Louis XIV's Versailles, the present structure of the aristocratic villa was completed by the Arconati family in the 18th century. It is an expression of the attention to detail and elegance of Lombard baroque, applied to the previous 17th century dwelling.

Hidden Gem
Jul 2018 • Family
On the outskirts of Milan is this hidden gem. A stunning villa which is in the process of being renovated, It is well worth a visit to the villa and the grounds surrounding it. It also has a lovely little coffee shop which is well worth a visit. Only open on a Sunday but definitely worth a visit.

A little treasure near Milan
Sep 2016 • Friends
It is called the little Versailles..and until 100 years ago it really was. Staying at the history of this place until 1900 it was full of treasures..from paintings to sculptures. Now the visitors could admire the paintings on the walls and the huge garden.
