VILLETTA GARDENIA

Sleeps 2 to 4 : 2 bedrooms, 2 en suite bathrooms

Sleeping 4 people, this elegantly converted and restored country villa was originally used as a barn in past centuries and still stands just across the courtyard from the grand farmhouse – likewise now renovated – that it once served.

Set high among the lush green hills which border Liguria and Tuscany and surrounded by a vast olive grove, it guarantees utmost privacy and seclusion and occupies the perfect spot for peaceful relaxation. In addition, the villa's outdoor jacuzzi pool invites you to bathe at leisure in its heated waters, undisturbed by the clamour of the outside world!

From this privileged elevated position, extensive scenic views can be enjoyed, stretching right from the Apuan Alps inland to the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. The Cinque Terre villages too are very close at hand.

ACCOMMODATION:

The property extends over three floors, as follows: At ground-floor level, a former winter conservatory has now been transformed into a lovely, light-filled dining-room, incorporating a lounge area and kitchenette. This modern fitted kitchen is fully equipped with oven; fridge/freezer, dishwasher; toaster; and espresso and American coffee-makers. Issuing from here, the utility room accommodates a washing-machine and dryer.

Positioned just outside the dining-room, a few external steps lead you upstairs to the first-floor sleeping quarters. These consist of a romantic double bedroom, with ensuite bathroom with shower, as well as a lovely adjoining terrace, furnished with table, chairs and sunshade.

From this level a wooden staircase proceeds to the top floor, where the second double bedroom is located, complete with its own ensuite bathroom with shower and a luxurious sauna, for when you feel like pampering yourself!

The house is tastefully and stylishly furnished and decorated throughout and careful attention has been paid to every detail of comfort and convenience a guest could require. Both bedrooms are fitted with air-conditioning; Sat.TV; CD-player; and mini-bar. The first-floor bedroom also provides a safe. Embroidered towels and bathrobes are likewise supplied.

Villetta Gardenia is indeed surrounded by an extensive garden, brightly planted with colourful, scented seasonal flowers. Beyond this, a large olive grove forms a restful backdrop. An elegant wooden gazebo, appointed with table and wickerwork chairs, allows you to enjoy this beautiful natural setting in welcome shade or to linger over breakfast, lunch or dinner al fresco. Completing this idyllic scene is the spacious, warm-water jacuzzi (3x3 metres), encircled by tempting sunshades and comfortable loungers, and with its own hot, outdoor shower alongside.

Please note: The property-owners themselves reside in the converted farmhouse building situated in the same grounds, just a few metres from Villetta Gardenia. However, each house has its own private entrance and garden and it goes without saying that the property-owners are at all times fully respectful of their guests' privacy.

The North West Italy region

The varied landscape of this area provides a wealth of different holiday settings for our guests.The dramatically rocky coastline of the Cinque Terre, with its exhilarating clifftop hiking-trails, gives way to sophisticated seaside resorts skirting bays with sandy beaches, washed by the warm turquoise water of the Mediterranean sea.

Ranging from just such superb coastal locations in the Cinque Terre area, to those of the adjoining Tuscan coast and countryside.

The diversity and outstanding natural beauty of this particular corner of the world really do promise something for everyone, to make your stay here truly unforgettable

"Superb villa, beautiful setting, great hosts."

We were completely blown away by the quality of the accommodation and the hospitality of Antonio and Fabiana - the photos on the website don't begin to do the villa and gardens justice. We arrived to a kitchen full of fresh provisons and home cooked food and the owners were always available to give helpful advice on local trips. We loved the jacuzzi, the sauna, the well equipped kitchen and the beautiful setting among the olive trees on the hillside. Wifi only worked outdoors but that was only a very minor quibble. The family loved it and we hope to return soon.
