The ancient residence Villa I Cedri of Carate Urio dates back to the ‘700. Later its symmetry almost radically modified at the beginning of the 19th century by the Sormani counts. Greenhouses, stables and an armory were created from scratch to give the villa a strong bond with the surrounding nature. Later it became the property of the Draghi family who called it with the current name of villa “ai Cedri”. Therefore this name derives from the presence of these precious secular trees still present in the garden. During this period numerous personalities of Italian history were hosts in the villa including the statesman Alcide De Gasperi.
In 1994 the Guarisco family bought the villa, owners of the textile company of the same name. Then they restored again the villa, keeping its charm of its history both in the interior and in the harmony with the landscape.
The original building in neo-classical style with an octagonal tower has been transformed into a prestigious residential complex. Thanks to these transformations, it is today one of the most chic and admired residences of the entire lake.

The motorway that connects Milan / Lugano and Malpensa International Airport can be reached in just a few minutes.
