The Villa has 14 rooms and suites on three floors. Inside the architecture and Moorish style reflect the middle eastern theme which is also a characteristic of the exterior of the residence.

Cristoforo Benigno Crespi, proprietor of Villa Crespi, in 1879 decided the Moorish style would inspire his “dream” home on Lake Orta. This style includes stuccoes and inlays that remind us of those far-off places which as a cotton merchant he regularly visited during business trips to Baghdad and Asia.

Our housekeeper Liliya takes daily care of these rooms which are furnished in the elegant style of the19th century with Arabesque features in the doors and windows. All the rooms are decorated with gorgeous parquet flooring and period furniture, the bathrooms being in marble.

The Villa Crespi building respects the rules of 19th century architecture where the upper floors were the accommodation for service staff, with slightly smaller rooms compared to those on the lower floors which were for the proprietors and their guests.
