More about Residence Celeste

Back where it all begins in the 1600…., the Lake Como area was affected by a huge emigration phenomenon, consequence of poverty, when the area could not provide for all.
The families who wanted riches and power were force to seek their fortunes living elsewhere, they travelled to every corner of Europe to bring their local products and produce, the citrus fruits, the olive Oil, the laurel and the chestnuts, to name but a few.

With these riches many beautiful palaces were built on Lake Como, containing the marble, Mosaic tiles on floor, Coffered ceilings, the Frescos and Luxurious Hallways.
These are the Brentano, Cetti, Mainoni, and Giulini’s houses, that can still be admired today.
It’s in this period the Residence Celeste building began.

Towards the end of the 1600”s some family members of Countess Brentano Mezzegra decided to build in front of father’s palace, the actual residence to hide the fabulous view on the lake.
Legend says the two Palaces became the seat of two Monasteries, and that the religious met in secret in underground passages, these passages connected the two buildings, and lead to the Lake.
The construction became a country house with cultivated fields. The Olive trees, the Vines, and the Mulberries (food for Silk worms ) were cultivated.

In 1933 Mr. Carlo Galli Great Grandfather of the present day owner bought the property, redeemed all Mortgages home , and used the dwelling as home, and farm.

The house remains the same and passed by Father to elder son Celeste Galli, until the present day.
In 2001 the present day Galli Family decided to begin restructure work to transform the property into Holiday Apartments, maintaining the principle characteristics of old, the Époque old fire, Coffered ceilings, bedroom with Built in Wardrobe, the arches and the niches. Maintaining the Charm of bygone days. And of course Honoring Grandfather by giving the Residence his name.
