Villa Romy lies in a small town between Lake Iseo and Lake Garda, surrounded by the vineyards that the Franciacorta area is famous for. Glorious Lombardy countryside and renowned wine cellars are on the doorstep here - as are amenities such as restaurants, shops and banks. Just a short drive away is Lake Iseo with its pretty villages and beaches.

Pass through a private gate and down the approach that leads to an entrance courtyard bursting with hydrangea and rose-filled flower beds. The impressive facade of Villa Romy is as romantic as the vineyard views and scenes out over to majestic Monte Orfano.

This nine bedroom estate dates back to the 17th century when it was owned by a noble family. It's a truly wonderful showcase of the architecture and style that characterises homes in the Lake Iseo area. The decorative use of Sarnico grey stone is particularly evocative and has remained a feature despite several renovations over the centuries. As have the wine cellars where the original owners produced and preserved Franciacorta brut wine.

Other highlights of Villa Romy include the 17th-century fireplaces and vaulted ceilings found in many of its elegantly furnished rooms. The villa's heritage can be felt in every antique piece, with history around every corner. Especially up in the attic with its well-preserved wooden structure.

With nine bedrooms and communal spaces including a living room, library and two sitting rooms, Villa Romy is a dream for up to 20 guests. Every experience feels special here, whether it's meals in a grand dining room or simply soaking in a deep bathtub after a long day.


Even more treats are found outside, with gardens offering vineyard views and a swimming pool for cooling off on hot days. There's also a tennis court for sporty guests to enjoy.

Villa Romy is a great base for getting out and exploring the gorgeous Franciacorta countryside. Enjoy horseback rides through vineyards and woodlands, with long walks and bike rides hard to resist.

Also spend lazy days at any one of Lake Iseo's beaches, with watersports and swims in crystal-clear waters. You'll always find a restaurant serving fresh seafood and plenty of warm Lombardy hospitality.

Immerse yourself in history with a visit to the attractive city of Bergamo. Longer days out can be enjoyed in places such as Lake Garda, Verona, Parma, Mantua and chic Milan. The Ponte di Legno-Tonale ski area with its 100km of slopes and 28 ski lifts is around two hours away by car.

Surrounded by vineyards that characterise the Franciacorta area, Villa Romy offers a truly authentic and exclusive experience. The amenities of the small town at the other end of the villa's long approach and private gate are just a short stroll away. There are banks, restaurants and shops, as well as a wealth of vineyards. The nearest supermarket is around 4km away.

As well as immersing yourself in wine culture, the countryside is also ripe for enjoying a range of outdoor activities. Scuderia Crazy Horse riding centre (2km) is just a five-minute drive away, where rides set off through scenic vineyards and woodland. Also just five minutes away by car is a multi-functional sports club which is next door to a fantastic water park for the kids.

The small, wooded and mountain-like island of Monte Isola is a beautiful spot, with a wealth of walking paths to follow. Including one that leads to the summit and the church, Santuario della Ceriola.

The villa is situated approximately halfway between the historic town of Brescia (27km) and the city of Bergamo (30km). Bergamo, on the edge of the Alps, is particularly lovely for a day out. The old part of the town, Città Alta, is where most of the historic sites and attractions are. Stroll along narrow lanes and discover the heart of the old town, Piazza Vecchia. It's a vast open space lined with medieval and Renaissance architecture, as well as cafes and bars. Places to tick off your sightseeing list include Palazzo della Ragione and the 12th-century church of Santa Maria Maggiore.

Majestic Lake Garda (68km) can be reached by car in an hour, with Verona (89km) and iconic Juliet's House just over an hour's drive away. Chic Milan (79km) is a must-visit on a longer day out.

  • Splendid

    Posted by Martin on 19/08/2022

    Lovely atmosphere - really enjoyed seeing the family photos. Almost as if the family had just moved out. Splendid swimming pool. Excellent staff on hand.

  • An amazing weekend that we will never forget

    Posted by Andreas K on 24/10/2018

    This is a fantastic house and the surroundings are beautiful. Convenient distance from Bergamo Milano airport and close to both vineyards and Lake Iseo. I would recommend to rent bikes from Nicola at Franciacorta bike tour. Rosella and Barbara were kind and very helpful. All in all, we had an amazing weekend that we will never forget.
