The Milan Linate airport is only 40 km away whereas the Orio Al Serio airport is only 30 km away.

' Vescogna ' is characterized by simple and dour shapes on the front facade that remind of its having been a castle of an Italian noble family (Casts family) in the 14TH century, situated by the Adda river, on the border between the Dukedom of Milan and the Venetian Republic.

On the other side, the house is rather baroque and it faces the south with its typical italian garden, constituted of three different terraces, each with its flight, balcony and marble decorations, not to mention its being shaped with boxwood topiary art and those prestigious trees typical of the 19TH century romantic garden ".

In the most repaired but best located side, just a few steps away from the amazing pool (25 meters), there is an ancient stable shed that is now used as a club-house.
