  1. Villa Scorpio History Unfortunately I couldn't find a great deal of history surrounding this location but from what I have gathered it was built at some point during the late 19th century. The former occupier owned a large cement factory in the same town. I would imagine the family were quite well off, as it was very grand and exquisite building. The design of the villa shared various similarities with the Art Nouveau style of architecture. Featuring a stunning staircase, a beautiful skylight and an decorative greenhouse. Our visit Visited with @darbians and @vampiricsquid on our tour of Italy last summer. As soon as we arrived outside, we knew it was going to be a good explore. Hope you enjoy my photos!

  4. Germany Villa W.

    1: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 2: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 3: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 4: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr 5: Villa W. by P Z, on Flickr We visited this Villa in may of this year. Seems the owner is a bit more cautious these days and sents people away sometimes being a bit aggressive. We only dealt with 2 people getting flowers in the garden which left us alone after giving us a 'dark' look after i said 'photography, ok?' Great Villa must have been impressive when the director of the nearby chocolate factory lived here. The factory we didn't explore, to many people outside. grts, Peter
  5. Italy Villa Sbertoli - 08/2017

    Once upon a time there was a prosperous father and his mentally ill son. Instead of giving the son to lunatic asylum he decided to try to cure his son on his own. Breathing his last the father willed to spend all of his property to the research of mental illness. According to his directive Villa Sbertoli was converted into a lunatic aylum after his death. During the times several buildings and a huge park were added. The asylum has been closed in the 1970s. The paintings in the cellar witness the inhabitants situation at the asylum. Although mainly the Villa appears very to be "decoratetd" Villa Sbertoli I felt it's a very impressive place. #1 DSC07975 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC07942 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC07943 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC07945 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC07946 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC07970 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC07952 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC07953 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC07969 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC07947 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC07948 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC07950 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC07949 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC07955 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC07956 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC07957 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC07959 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC07944 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC07971 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 DSC07973 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #21 DSC07979 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #22 DSC07980 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #23 DSC07981 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #24 DSC07983 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #25 DSC07984 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #26 DSC07985 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #27 DSC07987 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #28 DSC07988 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  6. There wasn't much to see at Villa amante del sole but I really love its architecture. Built in the 1930s the whole building was able to rotatet 360 degrees - following the sun. Unfortunately I couldn't visit the whole surrounding of the villa as I felt not to be alone. #1 DSC07902 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC07901 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC07900 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC07899 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC07889 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC07898 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC07885 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC07897 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC07896 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC07887 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC07895 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  7. An abandoned villa, named SS after the town it resides in. Not much to say really, a waste of a perfectly good house! Not my usual kind of explore if I'm honest but it made a change and kept @Miss.Anthropehappy! Same room but with the balcony doors opened to allow the sunlight in Thanks for looking

  9. Villa Spar is a modern architecture abandoned villa. Contemporary design and minimalist elements found here. Mix of wood, glass, stone and marble in a rather empty spot with an amazing swimming pool and an imposing living room ! The pictures are taken from two different visits, in the same year. One of my favorite places ever !! For now, the place is destructed.

  11. Villa Margherita is an abandoned residential building, which appeared from some of the modern decor to have been used as an office type building before becoming abandoned quite recently judging by the lack of decay… Visited with Andy de Kay, Matt and Spider Monkey, it was the last spot of the day and light was fading rather quickly. The main entrance hall with its mosaic tiled floor and impressive curved staircase and detailed ironwork balustrade which makes up the entirety of this report was pretty much the only notable feature with the rest of the building being quite bland. Still worth stopping off to see this. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Thanks for looking
  12. I didn't know if the property was still accessible. For this reason, I checked it the night before. The next day I visited the historic mansion in the early morning. I was very tired, but I was rewarded with some nice wall and ceiling paintings. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28
  13. Villa Zombo (august 2015)

    The third location of the day on a very hot day in Italy. It was a very nice place to explore. Beside the nice hallway and the beautifull bedroom there was not much to see. 1. 2. 3.

  15. Getting on quick with these Italy reports now. I'm aiming for at least one a day for now This place is just massive, it has its own chapel and cinema, it's been left for many years and has become slowly wrecked over time, but amidst all the wreckage and graffiti some great stuff still stands here, architecturally the place is stunning and that's mainly what I shot it for. When we turned up we noticed a load of cars parked around, we walked up and saw the front gates wide open too.. We carried on in and we noticed that the place was being massively tourbussed! Once you got a photo lined up some randomer would walk into frame, notice you, and carry on snapping away like you didn't exist We later discovered that this was actually an 'Urbex Tour' (God knows) and basically the guy that organises these gathers a location, makes sure it's open and then takes about 20 odd people along with him on a given date God knows what's happened to the umbex world Visited with AndyK!, PROJ3CT M4YH3M and Kriegaffe9. Photos: The Chapel: Other housey bits: Cinema: Messing around waiting for a certain Mr. Moone.. Cheers
  16. A quickie, but a nice one...... Villa Margherita is an abandoned house in Italy. An ornate staircase curves around into the entrance hall.

  18. Italy Villa PDO - 2015

    Hi all. Another Italy report from me This one was a back up because of the fail we had at another location earlier in the day. (Damn professional photo shoots) But what a back up it was We looked at what locations we had left, and this came up. We all thought "Yeah, f*ck it, let's go!" Beauty of a place with a damn fine staircase and some great painted ceilings and walls, sorted Visit with Project 'Moony' Mayhem, Andy de Kay and Kriegaffe9. Pics: Cheers, SM

  21. This was not only a house but also a atelier carpets and antiques. It is a villa very strange... a part old-style and a part, perhaps renovated, very modern. Welcome to Villa K.
  22. Villa B. is a little gem forgotten and hidden into the belly of a little town. Hope you'll like it.
  23. Italy Villa P - 2015

    Hey all, not posted for a while as my Flickr has been messing up! Here's one of the locations from our first day in Italy, with plenty more to come This trip will always be one of my favourites, I've never seen anything in the UK like I have in Italy. This place is falling to bits and there's not much to shoot besides the staircase, but it's a proper beauty! (Must add that a lot of the pics here are very similar, the best thing in here was the staircase) Visited with PROJ3CT M4YH3M, Behind Closed Doors and Kriegaffe9. Pics: Only a few shots here, but a lovely place. Cheers for looking
  24. It was a bit of a race against time getting to this location. Towards the end of the day, a successful day - this being the 4th location. We wanted to make sure that we had enough time to do the place properly, not rushed. Sometimes when the light fades, one has no choice but to rush though. as it happened, we got there around mid afternoon, so rushing was not going to be necessary. That was just as well, as I had no idea what to expect at this location, however the size of the place was a massive surprise. What was even more of a surprise was the different feel of the various rooms. It was pretty dark inside for the most part, but the decay and nature reclaiming was brilliant - if that is the right way to describe it... In one of the main rooms was a fireplace - which had a very interesting feature - a cupboard above the fire, but below the mantelpiece. Odd, as whatever was stored there would surely get pretty warm Although it was still pretty sunny outside, the shutters made it a bit of a nightmare to get any decent shots - although in some ways it also added to the atmosphere of the place In the basement was the remnants of brewing - quite whether this was just for the consumption of the house - probably - I don't know. Would be nice to have that sort of cellar though. Wine on tap - quite literally. Yep, I could do with that for sure The kitchen was a mess, they could have tidied up really On the way back to the car, I noticed this wheel. Not sure what the purpose was though, outside the house and yet with some sort of connection to the floor below. Whether it was a case of turning the wheel from the ground level or below is anyone's guess. There was not much movement in it now though... Thanks for looking in
