La Crestolina, is very likely one of the most unique Villas in the Lanzo area. Is dominating the Valley from an altitude of 1150m with a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains and the sound of the river reaching its windows. Engineer Tullio Miglietti, in 1927 asked his colleague and friend Michele Frapolli to build the villa. Mr Frapolli was an architect and engineer graduated in Zurich, Switzerland, specialized in Bavarian style buildings and the incredible Bavarian details are what make this Villa so unique together with the incredible location and the surrounding unsoiled nature. The architecture, and the structure of the building are an incredible mix of local stone, concrete, wood and paint seeing many master artisans working on it.
