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.
