So this abandoned villa was a bit of a shot in the dark. I personally never new of it but As The Light Slowly Fades suggested its worthwhile and on route so Maša Kores Photography and myself agreed we would check it out.
As we walked along the lakeside we got to a large set of gates. It didn't look promising thick overgrowth about ten feet tall. We walked on and the villa came into view. It was only just peeking above the overgrowth and nature had took it over severely. I really wanted a shot from this angle but a large wall was in the way.
Eventually the overgrowth calmed down and we found access into the large grounds we made our way to the villa and found access quite easily.
Yet another beautiful lakeside setting in large grounds around 12500 sqm, with a number of smaller buildings. The grounds behind the villa seemed well kept so we didn't stray to far in fear of getting seen.
Built in the 1920's as a centre for wellness and entertainment. Spa water was transported from the nearby Anzasca Valley. The transport costs were expensive and eventually the business closed down.
Due to the lakeside location the villa was comandeered by the Germans during WWII. Later in the following years saw regular use as a film set. The condition of the villa started to decline in the late 1970's it seems no effort to maintain it has been made since.
It is now owned by a hotel who has plans but I don't think it involves good things for the villa as there has been a lot of opposition against the plans.
