A large and modern elevator at the level of the main street and of the garages connects the villa with one more large building that integrates the property. It was the site where families of filandiers used to live. This beautiful and ancient building, with its balconies facing the picturesque small pier of the village, has been recently refurbished and divided into 11 indipendent apartments with all modern facilities.
BIT OF HISTORY
The oldest parts of the property date back to the end of the 17th century and are shown on maps from 1720. The current building was built between 1847 and 1860.
La Filanda, a former silk factory directly on Lake Como, is a unique property. It is located in Brienno, a small village with Celtic origin on the western shore of Lake Como.
The old factory has an interesting history and special charm.
In the 1960s was transformed into a tasteful and exclusive villa by an important family from Como, founder of the most important silk companies in the world.
