Not till long ago in Italy you would not use the word holidays but "Villeggiatura" to indicate the fact that you would spend time relaxing in the countryside or at the sea or in the mountains. The fundamental element of this way of travelling were the houses or villas. This journeys are designed with a strong focus on villas, historic villas, that are the essence of Italian culture. They are treasures that hiide the secrets of the real Italian way of life: forniture, cuttlery, art, gardens, ceramics, mosaic floors and frescoes. The owners open their homes to that the discerning traveller can discover the ordinary every day life of a private family and immerse in a familiar and unique atmosphere of other times.

Giovanni Vanossi and Silvia Brusadelli have a degree in Cultural Management of the University of Como and they followed their dream transforming their passion into a job. Villago is a project that comes from the love of their territory, the Brianza Region in Lombardy, where they see potential of the numerous villas that are mostly unknown. They have developed a system of privately onwned villas in which they offer events, experiential visits and with Elesta have decided to take it to the next level and expand to the world offering overnight stays and thematic itineraries aroud this magnificent homes.
