Villa and Park Pallavicino 100% owned by Borromeo

Villa and Park Pallavicino 100% owned by Borromeo

Prince Vitaliano Borromeo has completed the purchase of Villa and Parco Pallavicino. An operation that marks the interest in promoting and relaunching the location in Stresa on Lago Maggiore and the tourism development of the Verbano. Parco Pallavicino has been part of the Terre Borromeo circuit since 2017, the year when a series of interventions of regeneration and improvement of the environments devoted to the animals and tree-lined avenues were launched. Now, with the purchase of the Villa and the entire Park, the opportunities for raising the profile of the territory are increasing.

“The investment” – declares Prince Vitaliano Borromeo – “falls within the strategy that I have been pursuing for many years now to showcase the beauties of Lago Maggiore. Villa Pallavicino, with its 20 hectares of parkland, represents an important stage on the naturalistic itinerary on Lago Maggiore and I intend to continue on this path embarked upon by the Pallavicino family in the early ’60s.”

Parco Pallavicino is known above all for the abundance of its fauna, with over 50 species of mammals and birds living there under the expert gaze of the staff, who take care of them 365 days a year. No less impressive is the botanical heritage, curated by specialists and gardeners, which displays its beauties in the Flower Garden. Due to these characteristics, Parco Pallavicino is also very much appreciated by schools, with the organisation of educational, botanical and wildlife laboratories.

Each year Villa and Parco Pallavicino attract around 60 thousand Italian excursionists and foreign tourists. In the delicate situation created by the pandemic, in 2020 around 66.1 thousand admissions were recorded, compared to 62.4 thousand in 2019 (+5.9%), going against the trend compared to the majority of Italy’s tourist sites. This is a demonstration of the demand from visitors, above all families with children, to visit natural spaces in contact with nature and animals.

“Tis love that make the world go around, my baby". 
.
Così Charles Dickens intendeva l'amore, un sentimento così potente da far girare il mondo. 
.
Festeggiamo questo giorno lasciandoci andare alla stessa ispirazione che crediamo lo scrittore abbia trovato sull’Isola Madre quando ci soggiornò.

Avete una storia romantica da raccontarci vissuta sulle nostre isole?

“Tis love that make the world go around, my baby." 
.
So Charles Dickens meant love, a feeling so powerful that it can make the world go around. 
.
We celebrate this day by succumbing to the same inspiration we believe the writer found on Isola Madre when he stayed there.
.
Do you have any romantic stories to share with us about the time spent on our islands?
