How would you describe Monte Nobiallo in a nutshell?
Monte Nobiallo is a space where you can be free and enjoy time away from everyday life. It’s a hideaway with design elements and all the luxuries you need.
What is the story behind Monte Nobiallo, what was your inspiration to create it?
We have visited the area around Lake Como a lot in the past and it was the first trip we took as a couple. We instantly fell in love with the area and I’m sure many others can share that impression. After a couple of years of visiting, we wanted to find an apartment to buy but instead found this rustic homestead.
We were astonished by it — the huge windows and views across the lake. It is located on an ancient vineyard, with the terraces still in existence, even if the vines were long gone. So we dreamt of recreating the vineyard and this is something we are still trying to achieve.
How would you describe the atmosphere and interior design of Monte Nobiallo?
It’s minimalistic but there is everything you need. It was important to us to have high-quality interiors that matched the character of the house. So the lower level is in darker colours — green, brown and black — while the upper level is much lighter and brighter as it gets the full sun. It is a completely different feeling between the two when you climb up the ladder.
To you personally, what is so special about Monte Nobiallo?
The views from everywhere on the property — whether you’re lying in bed, at the dining table or on the terrace, you can look out across the lake. We just love being there without the noise from the city and other people — it’s being free.
