Green wall and Terrace at Villa le Barone

Green facades and green walls are trendy … and Villa le Barone follows this trend with its green facade of jasmine and Virginia creeper. It gives charm to our historic Villa, but it has also many advantages: it provides insulation, it changes with the seasons, it hosts birds and butterflies…

Many architects are now designing green buildings with green walls, green facades… Certainly at our Villa we cannot compete with them, but we have a beautiful green façade that welcomes guests, accentuating the green side of our hotel! The “Granaio” or the “Garden house”, parts of the Villa, are also covered with Virginia creeper and jasmine. And these green walls are not only aesthetic, they help insulate the Villa, preserving from the heat, therefore contributing to energy savings and furthermore absorbing greenhouses gases! They also change color with the seasons, from the light spring green to the dark summer green to the flamboyant red in autumn. In spring, the fragrance of the jasmine is a delight. And green facades also bring a soothing note: green walls allow to hear the sound of the wind in the leaves, the song of the birds, and to see the butterflies twirling… The quietness of the terrace in front of the green facade is only disturbed by the gurgle of the fountain.
