Paratico is known throughout the world for the development of pleasure boating which, boosted by the tourism of the seventies, has increased considerably, given the location of the city on the banks of Lake Iseo immersed in the lush countryside of Franciacorta, by now famous around the world for the production of prestigious wines. After the turn of the first millennium, the local lords built a castle of which only a few traces remain but, according to ancient tradition and confirmed by the “Chronicle of the Lantieri Family of Paratico”, Dante Alighieri stayed at Castle Lantieri and later used the image of Paratico Castle for the description of Purgatory in his Divine Comedy. On the hill overlooking the town, this villa was built, work on which began in 2005. The villa was constructed, in the midst an ancient orchard, in the neoclassical style yet absolutely contemporary. The house is divided into two separate residential units that share a large banquet hall furnished with bathrooms and cloakroom. Each residential unit has 4 rooms with en suite bathrooms, a habitable attic used as an office or relaxation area, large living room and kitchen. The property is completed with a two-storey annex, with living room and kitchen on the ground floor and three bedrooms with bathroom on the first floor. The park could easily accommodate a swimming pool, which the current owners did not built due to their great enthusiasm for lake activities. At the entrance is the old chapel, now completely restored and included in the property. This highly prestigious residence is well worth a visit since the emotion triggered by the photographs and this short description cannot do it justice.
