Villa Puller, located in the small mountain village of Roletto on the slopes of Monte Rosa, is a period property of the Belle Époque, recently restored and furnished as a holiday home, an ideal place for spending a holiday in the mountains, far from the hustle and bustle of the city.
It was built in 1864 by the Gorini family. The Botti family lived there in the last century, and the last person to live there was Giuseppe Botti, one of the most famous Egyptologists of his day.
The villa is surrounded by a large garden with a vineyard along the edge. Fruit trees, boxwood and impressive holly bushes shade the grounds. Here our guests can enjoy breakfast, admiring Monte Rosa and the other peaks surrounding the property. Guests are free to work in the garden in the company of the owners.
In true Alpine tradition, the stube is the heart of the home, a square room completely cladded in wood like a precious box. The stone stove brings warmth to the atmosphere, where you can eat, rest, chat and work on cold days in winter. The walnut-wood benches surround the ‘furnét’ inviting guests to come and sit there, and to rest against the warm stone.
The kitchen is available for guests and is a convivial meeting place and the most popular common area. Alpine families have always gathered around the fire, and in this house, it has been preserved along with the traditional seats next to the fireplace.
The common areas are always available to our guests.
