Full description:

The villa is about 7 minutes from the center of Alassio or 15 minutes by foot. The grand villa padronale is approached by a cobbled road through the woods, consisting of pines, olives and Mediterranean mache, the road needs a four wheel drive car to pass some of its steep turns. The impressive entrance gates open to the terraced gardens of the villa, with a superb rock pool taking mineral water from the mountain. The garden has trailing wisteria and wonderful arbors for summer shaded dining. The sea view and the totally undisturbed quality of the view and the surrounding nature are an omnipresent part of this wonderful garden, remote from the 20th century.

The main villa is over three floors and of 272,32 sqm. The top floor is the artist studio of the famous Carlo Levi, both artist and writer. The work of Carlo Levi is permanently displayed in a gallery in the town of Alassio below and his affrescoes can be seen in the Teatro Carlo Felice, alongside the Ducal Palace in Genova. The villa itself has in part the air of a cultural icon, with many walls and ceilings affrescoed, it is deeply intimate and a reflection of another time. The seventeenth century structure is quirky, with many vaulted ceilings and enormous windows to take in the natural panorama and seascape. On the ground floor there is a kitchen, dining room, study and sitting room, doors lead to two further rooms currently used as bedrooms for the large family. Stairs lead to the upper floors with 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The masterpiece is the artist room in the tower above, with its huge windows and high ceiling. Stairs lead to a terrace above.

Alongside the main house , the cottages of the family retainers have been newly redeveloped into two guest apartments over two floors both of circa 100 sqm with kitchen and dining room below and two bedrooms and a bathroom above. A further development is possible using the old storerooms and chicken houses remaining behind the house.

The land of the house stretches both above and below the villa, in old times it was fully cultivated with ample olive groves and flower cultivation on its old stone terraces. By now it is abandoned to nature, hawks and falcons are often found here as are the wild boar. Particularly beautiful is the pine forest on the western side, perfumed with wild rosemary, eucalyptus and the centuries old pines. This leads up onto a rocky terrace where below in antique times the flowers were cultivated, from up here this is a stunning sea view of the Bay of Alassio stretching towards Laigueglia.

The underlying town of Alassio is a fashionable resort from the turn of the century for aristocrats and artists from Europe. The center of the town known as the Budello is of medieval origin, now filled with top fashion boutiques, fabulous restaurants and bars. So great is its beauty that it has been used as the backdrop for many films. The medieval village opens directly onto the four kilometer long golden sand beach. The town has a stunning Victorian tennis club and the famous Golf Club of Garlenda is nearby
