Villa Floris is situated in a divine location boasting panoramic views, only a few kilometres from the fine, sandy beaches of the renowned seaside resort of Alassio. Villa Floris is in a tranquil sunny location on the edge of the picturesque village of Garlenda, offering unrestricted views over the entire valley. This is where the Fiat 500 Club has its international headquarters; in addition, an 18 hole golf course a mere 1.5km away invites you to enjoy a relaxing round of golf. Shops to cater for your daily needs and two restaurants are a few hundred metres away. Furthermore, the bustling town centre of Albenga and the elegant boutiques of Alassio invite you to indulge in a spot of holiday shopping.
Villa Floris is situated on a completely enclosed plot. This spacious property, with its well-groomed, landscaped pool, is kept in a Provencal style and has a total living area of 250 m²; it has up to 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms/shower rooms and comfortably sleeps 10 people. You enter the house directly into the elegant living area, which has a parquet floor and well-kept furniture, consisting of a mixture of antiques and modern design items. During the off-season, the large fireplace in front of the comfortable sitting room suite can be lit. Large double doors open into the cultivated garden and the terraces surrounding the house. The open-plan kitchen is well-equipped with high-quality kitchen appliances. The panorama glazing blurs the transition from the interior to the exterior. The first floor accommodates one double bedroom (king size bed), a bathroom with a jacuzzi and a shower and a twin bedroom with an en-suite shower room. Each bedroom has its own terrace with direct access to both the garden and the pool. On the mezzanine floor, there is a further bedroom (king size bed) with a large flat screen TV and access to the partially covered terrace, which has a number of brick-built seating areas and a magnificent view of the estate and the entire valley.
The top floor of the house accommodates the large master bedroom (king size bed) with an en-suite shower room and walk-in wardrobe. Here, again, you have a private terrace with direct access to the garden via a staircase. In the basement you will find the studio, a further double bedroom with a small shower room and a walk-in wardrobe, which can be hired separately, if required.
However, the heart of this property is the garden with its spacious landscaped pool, offering plenty of space, even for more ambitious swimmers. Next to the pool, there are changing cubicles, as well as an additional shower and toilet. In the summer months, life takes place outside around the pool. Whether you want to retreat to the hammock or enjoy a glass of cool rosé wine, sunbathe on one of the sun loungers around the pool or seek out the shade – everyone will find their own favourite spot. The outdoor kitchen next to the landscaped pool is the perfect addition. Besides the four-ring gas hob, sink and refrigerator, you will find a brick pizza oven and a barbecue.
The private car park is secured by an automatic gate and offers up to four parking spaces. The entire estate is very well looked after. The manageress lives in the building next door; she discretely tends to the flowers and plants in front of the house and is available if you have any questions or in an emergency. On request, the guests staying at the villa can choose a Ligurian meal, which the manageress will cook for them. The pool service cleans the pool twice a week and a gardener comes every Saturday. The washing service is included in the price (your laundry is washed but not ironed). On request we can also arrange for an additional housekeeping service charged by the hour.
A holiday in Villa Floris means enjoying the Italian “Dolce Vita” with all your senses.
