Villa Baronessina, Italy, by Walter Angonese and Manfred Alois Mayr


The peaks of the Dolomite mountains serve as a backdrop to this South Tyrol holiday home, which Italian architect Walter Angonese and artist Manfred Alois Mayr designed to be “in constant dialogue” with its surrounding landscape.

Traditional Japanese tea houses inspired the pitched form of the property’s roof, while inside sits a gold-painted guest bedroom.

Villa Baronessina was designed by architect Professor Walter Angonese and artistically interpreted by the artist Manfred Alois Mayr. It is a modern jewel, not at all a common place, with strong connections to the architectural past.

On the ground floor there is one double bedroom with ensuite shower bathroom, an extra shower bathroom and a living room which can be used as double bedroom.

Outdoors, but sheltered by a canopy, there is a private whirlpool. Nearby you find the spacious Mediterranean garden with sunbeds.

Highlight of the garden is the outdoor-pool with an environmentally friendly salt water electrolysis cleaning system. Your skin will enjoy its soft natural water.

The spa area, a perfect place for relaxation, has a Fin- and Bio Sauna.

The centre of the villa is the dining and living room on the first floor. It offers a wonderful view to the surrounding mountains and the fragrant Mediterranean garden. In front of the living room there is a beautiful wisteria shaded terrace. A cosy patio, where you can sit and barbecue, invites to dolce vita.
