Description

EXCLUSIVITY CARDIS SOTHEBY'S INTERNATIONAL REALTY !

Set amidst the Alps in the lush Rhône valley, the village of Saxon has grown rapidly in recent years and today has almost 4,000 inhabitants. Its popularity is down to a prime location close to the canton’s largest towns, 20 minutes away from Sion and 10 minutes from Martigny.

Named Villa Fama, this mansion was built in 1861 by local notable Joseph Fama when he settled in Saxon and took over management of the casino and baths. He went on to transform the tiny village into a fashionable and cosmopolitan destination by turning the casino into an exclusive establishment that also boasted a concert hall. Many luminaries stayed in the villa, including Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Victor Hugo and Giuseppe Garibaldi.

Villa Fama is ideally located just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Saxon and its amenities, and a short drive from the motorway. Standing on a 1,690 m² plot, this building comprises 22 rooms over 1,131m² of living area. With three floors, it offers an exceptional 5,700 m³ of volume.

Superb period details have been preserved, making this home truly timeless. It features ceilings three metres’ high, magnificent parquet flooring in excellent condition, fireplaces in almost every room, stunning Rococo-style living rooms and an imposing Saillon marble staircase, in perfect condition and crowned by a glass dome.

Outside, the garden features a 100 m² annex with a swimming pool and shower room. A stone wall surrounds the property to ensure privacy. Two garages and an outhouse complete this property.
