Villa Buttafava – le Candie is an 18th century villa surrounded by a park and a magnificent Italian Garden; it is the ideal place for hosting weddings, conventions, gala dinners and business meetings, receptions, photo sessions, fashion shows and many other kinds of events.
On a hilltop, surrounded by a park with masterpieces of contemporary art (visit www.buttafavarte.it) the villa welcomes its guests in the elegant rooms of the noble floor, which have kept its original frescos, pavements, door and window frames: the ideal place for aperitifs or dinners with a special atmosphere.
The veranda, with a view on the Italian Garden, is heated in winter and air conditioned in summer and it can hold over 200 seated guests for dinners, conferences or concerts.
The cellars, with brick vaults, are the right place for a rustic hors d’oeuvre, wine and cheese tasting.
The lemon-house, the chapel, the observatory and the nymphaeum surround the geometric Italian Garden where aperitifs or wedding cakes underneath the summer’s sky can be savored.
The villa, with a convenient inner parking area, is easy to reach from Varese, Milano and the Malpensa International airport.
