Villa Rigoletto, a hidden gem in Cinque Terre. Set among a luxuriant botanic garden , is a unique location , able to fulfill the most demanding travellers' needs.
Villa Rigoletto is situated on the most spectacular view point of the Gulf of Poets . The property is made of an ancient historical tower built towards the end of the XIII century as observation tower , able to defend locals from the Pirate Saracene's attacks . During the centuries the tower has been converted into a noble , amazing dimora , as a central body with halls , kitchen and rooms has been annexed. Lots of hystory and changements have passed during the last 800 years : world wars , secret alliances , but also great partys and art. Yes, art above all !! We don't have to forget that during the Belle Epoque time , the famous opera writer Sam Benelli has choosen Villa Rigoletto as his home .It is during these years that he has composed his most famous masterpieces ( La Cena delle Beffe , and Rosmunda ). Can't you hear the music while you are walking through the corridors ? Villa Rigoletto has been purchased by the actual owners at the beginning of the 1950 , and during the 1980, thanks to the immense love that Margaret has for the botany , an amazing system of repopulation with rare plants coming from every part of the world has started . A professional plan of irrigation, love and devotion , has created the most beautiful and unique botanical gardens in Cinque Terre
A spectacular bloom of multicolor azaleas , the most beautiful and complete hydrangeas lined avenue of the all mediterranean coast ,a bunch of rare palms (that have found in the Villa's park a perfect habitat to proliferate ) and a 50 years camphor tree, are the jewels of this magical place.
In the splendid building of taste eclectic of the conservatory , guests can admire most kind of spontaneous flora of the Mediterranean bush . Among the other principal amenities of Villa Rigoletto , we have to mention a magic hidden spot close to the palms' section , where travellers looking for peace can find an hammock and a breathtaking view .When sun is too hot and cicadas' songs are too noisy , guests would find calm and draw inspiration from the tub of the lotus flower .
An elegant infinity pool , with design chairs and sunbeds and a modern gymnasium ,shows us that the property is constantly evolving. Villa Rigoletto is an out of time place , where past and present can exist together, in harmony with the surronding elements .
