An historic, early 20th century Art Nouveau villa, classic and contemporary décor, a swimming pool surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation, an endlessly-stretching view of the sea
All this and much more is Villa Gioiello, the result of classic imprint in one of the most famous localities of western Liguria. Located in one of the most sought-after residential areas of Sanremo, city of flowers and famous for the Sanremo Music Festival (Italian song festival), Villa Gioiello is the ideal destination in which to spend a regenerating holiday in one of the most beautiful areas of Liguria, alternating relaxation in the pool with whole days spent at the beach; it is also strategically placed for visiting all the beauties offered by this stretch of coast as less than an hour’s drive away is the Côte d’Azur and the splendid towns of Nice and Cannes as well as the Principality of Monaco.
The villa has 4 floors. The ground floor, in direct communication with the garden, consists of a brightly-lit living area with a sea-view terrace, a relaxation room, a dining room connected to a modern well-equipped kitchen and a guest bathroom. A sumptuous central staircase with an elegant wrought iron bannister by the Italian artist Alessandro Mazzucotelli leads to the upper floors comprising the sleeping area. On the first floor is the master area consisting of two large double bedrooms: the first with walk-in closet, en-suite bathroom with shower and a panoramic terrace, the second with a relaxing study area with pianola and en-suite bathroom with shower and tub. The second floor, dedicated to guests, consists of two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom, two bathrooms with shower (one of which en-suite) and a sitting room with sea-view terrace. The villa has recently been completely renovated, with carefully researched period materials and equipped with state-of-the-art technological systems. All the floors are also connected by internal lift. There is also a laundry area on the basement floor and an apartment for the villa staff with a separate and completely independent entrance. The property includes an underground garage.
The 1,000 sq m garden extends all around the property, incorporating it in a context of total privacy. The main part is paved in stone while another part is covered by lawn. The garden includes palm trees, colourful flowers and climbing plants. There are two large gazebos organised as outdoor living areas with tables and chairs, ideal for enjoying seafood dinners at sunset, and various other relaxation areas scattered around the garden.
The kidney-shaped pool is located next to the entrance of the villa and easily reached down 10 steps. Measuring 32 sq m with a constant depth of 1,50 m, it is lined in aquamarine PVC and has chlorine purification and Roman steps for access to the water. The partly stone-paved and lawn sunbathing area is equipped with deckchairs. The pool is available from the last Saturday of April to the first Saturday of October.
Sanremo is one of the most important tourist centres of Liguria and owes its fame to the Casino and to the Sanremo Music Festival (Festival della Canzone Italiana di Sanremo). It was discovered by international tourism in the second half of the 19th century. The last few years have seen a revival of tourism thanks also to the brand new cycle path, one of the longest in Europe, which runs along the coast to San Lorenzo al Mare. Other places of interest within easy reach are Arma di Taggia, a seaside town rich in tourist attractions, nightclubs and restaurants, Triora with its magnificent medieval borgo, Badalucco, famous for its oil and its murals, Ceriana, with its evocative carruggi (narrow alleyways) and Bussana Vecchia with its International Artists Village.
