Byblos Art Hotel Villa Amistà History
The architect Michele Sanmicheli in the fifteenth century built the central body of Villa Amistà in Venetian style, working on the remains of a Roman "strong house".
The current construction dates back to 1700 and is the work of the architect Ignazio Pellegrini. Inside you can admire frescoes and original finds of both period, recovered through careful philological restorations. In Villa Amistà, history blends with the contemporary interior furnishings, the result of the creativity of the well-known designer Alessandro Mendini and with the numerous works of internationally renowned artists that make this hotel a true museum of contemporary art and design.
The 59 rooms, all different and unique, the luxuriant park lying on the green hills of Valpolicella, the Pompeian-style spa, the refined cuisine of the Atelier restaurant, create a perfect combination to offer unique stays.
