Owner description: The complex of vineyard and gardens was built at the beginning of the seventeenth century, on the model of the Roman villas, by Prince Cardinal Maurizio di Savoia. After his death (1657) there followed decoration campaigns for the wife Ludovica and, at the end of the century, for Anna d'Orleans, the wife of Vittorio Amedeo II, Duke of Savoy. The apartments and gardens of the Villa, referred to as those "of the Queen" after the Duke of Savoy took the royal title in 1713, were modernised by Filippo Juvarra for Carlo Emanuele III. In the middle of the eighteenth century stables and service buildings were put up. In 1865 Vittorio Emanuele II gave the residence to a female school (Istituto Nazionale per le Figlie dei Militari Italiani), which was active until 1975. Since 1994 restoration work have been carried out on behalf of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage. The Villa has been open to the public since 2006.

A beautiful location to explore, no matter whether it is summer or winter, but prepare and research before you arrive to get the full value of the visit to this location.

One of the most beautiful place in all Turin, this Villa has a unique location on the hills of Turin, its elegant rooms and the fantastic garden makes a tour to this place an absolutely must that one has to see together with the fantastic city's view from the hills, not forgetting the many stories that this palace saw inside its walls.
