La casa nel borgo B&B is in a neoclassical building of the late eighteen century taht has been recently renovated. It’s located in the small rural village of Castelfranco d’Oglio, in the municipality of Drizzona, province of Cremona, immersed in the Parco dell'Oglio Sud.
The building has been renovated in compliance with the original architectural structure. During the eighties, the speculation had partly damaged its identity, while afterwards it was completely abandoned for about twenty years, until, in 2011, we decided to buy the house. We found it in the utter degradation: the floor in the entrance and the corridor had been removed, a black granite had been glued over the original terracotta tiles on the ground floor; on the first floor there was an awful blue carpet, worn by time. Garden was an immense concrete casting and the attic was the shelter of all the pigeons of the village.
Moreover, according to reported stories of the old people of the village, the house once contained antique fireplaces and fountains, whose any trace now has been lost.
However, thanks to the intuition of Sergio Zubelli, the old building has slowly been brought back to its former glory.
We succeeded in recovering the original terracotta tiles floor in two bedrooms. The blue carpet has been thrown away and replaced with wooden and marble; concrete in the garden has given way to green lawn, plants and flowers.
The whole house, and in particular our four bedrooms, is completely furnished with antiques.
