Created by the architect Piero Portaluppi in Somma Lombardo (Varese) between 1932 and 1934, Villa Del Dosso is considered to be one of the greatest works from the great architect’s vast production. It is located in the Parco del Ticino, a protected environmental oasis nominated as a SIC (site of community importance) since 2008, in an enclosed area of about 17 hectares, where it is normal to see a multitude of fallow deer and bucks running wild but completely used to man.
The Villa is recorded in the Register of the Portaluppi Foundation and is part of a larger building complex which also includes: a house where the owner Mr Umberto Quintavalle lives, a porter’s lodge/stable, a consecrated chapel, and other minor buildings designed by Portaluppi. The Villa del Dosso is a private and prestigious location where stays and top level company events can be held in complete privacy far from prying eyes. The Villa, which has perfectly preserved its original old-time charm, is also equipped with a swimming pool, a 5-a-side football field and it is even ideal for walks or mountain bike rides in the woods of the Ticino Park.
The residence has a very large green area with a wood stretching towards the exterior, ideal for ad hoc team building sessions and outodoor training activities to be held in wide outdoor areas and monitored in complete security. As well as being perfectly suitable for outdoor training, the area surrounding the Villa is enhanced by an open-air terrace and a swimming pool with an authentic and striking 1930s gazebo. The surrounding park is also equipped with a 5-a-side football field, which can also be used for other sport activities, where one can take a challenge and participate in team-building.
Villa del Dosso is a total of 994 sq.m. spread over 4 levels, excluding the wide terraces. The authenticity of the place and its great value that is not only historical but also empathetic generates feelings of belonging, care, beauty and of something that is long-lasting and maintains its values, thanks also to its amazingly beautiful furniture, paintings and porcelain. The Villa, located in the highest part of the property, dominates the landscape that stretches from the Villoresi canal in the east to the Ticino river in the west. It is steeped in history and culture with an amazing library and references to an important family history and can be perfectly adapted to meetings, relaxation and pleasure for top level guests.
Villa del Dosso is just 12 minutes away from Terminals 1 and 2 of Malpensa Airport, an hour from Linate airport and only 50 minutes from the centre of Milan
