Completely restored with the latest materials, Farmhouse Gaggioli has all the ancient and refined charm of the Milanese farmhouses. Typical buildings from regular red bricks have been used as bedrooms and a studio apartment with kitchenette to offer guests the option of overnight stay and breakfast.
The farmhouse presents the typical structure of a square area which acts as a farmyard, onto which all buildings face, such as the bed and breakfast, the grocery shop, the workshops, so that the yard becomes the centre of activities of the farm. Along the East side of the yard, the building hosts a long portico denominated ‘Barchessa’, with a typical red roof tiles, which acts as a living area all through autumn and early spring and summer, with events such as birthday parties, Saturday grill parties, and evening drinks.
The farmhouse’s building is thought to date back to the mid 19th century, as testified by the inscriptions on the granite plinths that flanked the water intake for the ‘ marcite ’, a traditional method of irrigation of the land around Lombardy, which allowed water to reach the land all through the year by using natural sloping grounds.
