The complex has generous beautifully laid out gardens, which also contain a swimming pool and tennis court. In addition, the apartment has the benefit of its own little private garden and a well shaded patio.
The complex is set slightly up on a hill behind the Casino of San Remo, not far from the famous shops (Prada, Gucci, Calvin Klein etc in the Corso Mateotti).

The Castello Devachan was built and designed by the engineer Pietro Agosti (from Sanremo) with the help of engineer Winter. The building developer was Costanzio Sappia. The architecture of the castle was in the liberty style. The Castello Devachan stands majestically on the hill of Berigo, a few minutes from the centre of Sanremo, set amongst other beautiful villas, between palm trees, orange trees, cacti, banana, and other tropical and Mediterranean plants.

The Castello Devachan was purchased in 1890 by the English Count Orazio Savile of Mexborough. The elder Lord Mexborough acquired the castle to live there with his young spouse Lady Ivy, despite his age of 75 years. The Count of Mexborough had become a Buddhist after having lived in India for thirty years, it was he who named the Castello Devachan. Before it was called Villa Silvia Mexborough, after his first wife.

On April 19, 1920, the First World War Allies leaders, working through the League of Nations, gathered at the Castello Devachan in San Remo, Italy to carve up Turkey. With the last dusk of the San Remo Conference, the conferees granted France the mandate for both Syria and Lebanon. The British received the mandate for Iraq, and also Palestine, under a provision creating a Jewish homeland.
