Consisting of three elegant buildings – the Villa, the Villino and Casa del Sole, Villa della Pergola is harmoniously set within the slopes of the hills above Alassio.


The complex is surrounded by a luxuriant garden that blends Mediterranean vegetation with various types of rare plants and fabulous exotic flora. It boasts a unique history intertwined with that of the British community who chose this corner of the Riviera as a favourite winter resort destination throughout the 19th century.


The two refurbished late 19th century villas, faithfully preserved and restored under architect Ettore Mocchetti, authentically replicate the lay out of British residences from the Victorian period in India and Malaysia, bringing to life the elegant taste and atmosphere of the fin de siècle through meticulously studied furniture and a fine collection of watercolours and Victorian and Edwardian paintings.
