Summer In Italy Villa Della Pergola The Luxury Retrait On The Italian Riviera 3 New Suites In The “Casa Dei Giardinieri”

Villa della Pergola in Alassio (Liguria region) is the perfect location where guests staying can feel completely at home, with the highest levels and privacy standars. News of this: season: the suites are now 15 divided between the Villa, Villino, Casa del Sole and the just restored Casa dei Giardinieri. Every suite is different from the other and each is dedicated to characters who have stayed at Villa della Pergola or who have been part of the aristocratic British colony that took up residence at Alassio. The perfect destination to relax in the Jacuzzi swimming pool in the botanical park of the Villa, strolling in the typical “Budello” in Alassio or sunbathing at the beach.

THE HISTORY

Villa della Pergola has a quite unique history that is in fact intimately bound up with the English community that chose to stay on this coast in the years between 1800 and 1900 as one of their favourite wintering holiday spots.

The Villa and the garden were originally the idea of the Scottish General William Montagu Scott Mc Murdo in 1875. In the early years of the twentieth century the grounds and the Villa della Pergola passed into the hands of Virginia Woolf’s cousin Sir Walter Hamilton Dalrymple.

In 1922 the new owner Daniel Hanbury, second-born of Thomas, designer and owner the celebrated Hanbury gardens of La Mortola, Ventimiglia, began the work of developing the collections of plants in the grounds, drawing on the resources of the family’s own botanical gardens.

For a while the gardens were largely abandoned and so deteriorated. In 2006 a string of friends guided by Silvia and Antonio Ricci, always well aware of the story of these lands and eager to safeguard, protect and restore the landscape, purchased the property at auction to save it from the developers.

THE RETREAT

Refined collections of watercolors, Victorian and Edwardian paintings, memorabilia and antiquities, will make you experience the fin de siécle taste and atmosphere. A place where history, luxury and nature blends together. A place of peace serenity, far enough to the crowds of the Riviera. Villa della Pergola distinguish itself by offering the perfect synthesis between the concept of a house and the highest standards in hospitality. The suites, the rooms, the open spaces, were developed to make you feel like home.
