Villa del Borgo dei Conti della Torre is a magnificent 17th-century historic residence on the banks of the Tagliamento River, in the province of Pordenone.
The origins of the illustrious feudal family can be traced back to the Frenchman Napoleone Della Torre; among the figures who lent luster to the family pedigree were three patriarchs of Aquileia, a cardinal, bishops, prelates and gallant knights.
The recently-restored complex comprises the Villa, a Barchessa (farm building) with swimming pool, the Gastaldia, the 15th-century Chapel and a building for bed and breakfast lodgings. The Villa’s first or “noble” floor conserves fine late-18th-century frescoes, 19th-century wood floors and original beams.
The Chapel, decorated with frescoes from 1511, is still consecrated. The Barchessa with the swimming pool offers a charming location for weddings and events, while the Gastaldia has 11 guest rooms.
A large Italianate garden with a fountain surrounds Borgo dei Conti della Torre.
