The History of the Villa

In 1859, the property was acquired by Milanese count Alessandro Barbavara, who oversaw the construction of the three-story villa, caretaker's quarters, and a boat shed. Later, his grandson expanded the villa, adding two terraces. The southwestern shores of Lake Como, basking in abundant sunlight, became a coveted retreat for the county's aristocracy, offering a serene, charming, and romantic haven during the 18th and 19th centuries.

The majestic plane tree of Villa I Platani

Within the sprawling park spanning over 5700 sqm, stand numerous stately plane trees, lending their name to the villa - Villa I Platani. Among them, one particularly ancient and imposing tree stands tall at 50 meters with a trunk circumference of 8 meters. Esteemed as the tallest "oriental plane tree" in Italy and one of the grandest in Europe, it boasts an estimated age of around 350 years. These venerable plane trees likely predate the villa's construction, planted in what once was a flat meadow near the lake by the affluent Brentano family, renowned merchants who traded eastern goods across the continent.
