Villa Edera & La Torretta ***S
is sheltered by the lush green hills of Liguria which, in addition to their tranquil views, also provide a starting point for stunning walks or bike rides through the natural world.
The town is just a short, picturesque walk away, and a private lift also links the hotel with the railway station (150 m), essential for daily connections to the renowned sights of the Ligurian Riviera.
The old Monleone Castle with its Turret (1173 AD), now the home of a unique suite at Villa Edera, is also a draw for history buffs.
The Schiaffino family have looked after guests with all their dedication and enthusiasm since 1962, constantly trying out new ideas but unfailingly drawing on tradition as an essential, limitless source of inspiration.
A convenient open-air car park is located right in front of the hotel (free when you book directly), with a garage (EUR 10/day) close by.
“In all things of nature there is something of the marvellous.”
The hotel grounds occupy over 2.000 m2, with a private Mediterranean garden, olive grove, orchard and vegetable garden, suspended terraces with a view of the pool, a romantic gazebo decked with wisteria, a rose garden and a kiwi arbour.
“If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.”
After sunbathing, there’s nothing better than a refreshing dip in the crystal waters of our pool, where swallows often skim the surface, surrounded by a lush Mediterranean garden full of lemons and oranges, pomegranates and lavender, thyme and rosemary, myrtle and marjoram, liquorice, juniper, strawberry trees and roses.
The pool is 12 x 6 m with a depth varying from 70 cm to 170 cm, plus a children’s pool.
N.B. Entry is available to non-resident guests following Reception’s permission and payment of a fee. During busy periods, requests may be declined to ensure that the pool remains a place of tranquillity.
The vegetable garden
“Sit the noon out, pale and lost in thought
beside a blazing garden wall,
hear, among the thorns and brambles,
snakes rustle, blackbirds catcall…”
Fruit, vegetables, herbs, olives, oranges, lemons, tangerines and squashes: it all grows in abundance here.
