Castle “La Camilluccia”, dating from the end of 1700 and later expanded with a restoration work by the surveyor Ettore Bobbio, is located in the hilly area of Novara, about ten minutes from Borgomanero and Lake Orta, near big cities like Milan and Novara and Malpensa airport. Inside the Castle there is an ancient frescoed hall characterised by a stairwell that leads to the bedroom upstairs. The Castle welcomes its guests in the living rooms with fireplaces and frescoes on the walls on the ground floor, where there is also a guest bathroom, kitchen, dining room and studio located in the base of the tower and a terrace overlooking the garden. The sleeping area on the first floor hosts the master bedroom with private sitting room, a second double bedroom and two other bedrooms and a bathroom. The second floor has been completely renovated and has now become a unique apartment including entrance hall, living room, small study in the tower, kitchen, double bedroom, twin bedroom and bathroom. The finishes are mostly made of wood and frescoes as the principal elements that remind to the typical colours of the lands of Piedmont, the exposed brick and wrought iron that frames the stairwells.
