Description

Villa Barca, a magnificent and unique residence, is a place where you breathe peace and tranquility in every corner. The property is surrounded by lush, mediterranean gardens, woods and olive groves and enjoys a dominant position over the Western Ligurian Valleys and the Mediterranean Sea, embellished by a stunning infinity pool and an ancient private chapel.

The property epitomises the perfect blend of history and modernity: its origins lay in the 17th century, as evidenced by the private chapel still present on the property, which served the owners and the workers and neighbours of the manor as an exclusive place to worship. The original proprietors of this country estate came from a rich family of Genovese advocates who traced their roots back to the village.
One of the ancestors even rose up to the rank of private lawyer for King Victor Emanuel II, King of Sardinia, Duke of Savoy, who later became the first king of Italy. In the 20th century the chapel was deconsecrated and used among others as an artist studio.

The property, spread over about 500 square meters, is now a charming and exclusive bed & breakfast with five private and independent apartments, surrounded by beautiful gardens and parks with panoramic terraces, their views sweeping between the sea, the Ligurian coast of the Levante and the mountains of the Ligurian Alps.
The central structure is divided into several floors: on the ground floor we find the spacious kitchen, a large dining room with conversation-room and a fireplace embellished with slate that was salvaged from a nearby medieval castle.

From the charming inner courtyard there is also access to a room used as a creative studio and to the first of the five apartments on the property, ”La Terrazza,” which is divided as follows: bedroom, bathroom, large living room with fireplace and French doors overlooking a vast panoramic terrace with sun loungers, umbrellas and dining area.

From the inner courtyard there is also access to the apartment ”La Campagna,” which consists of a bedroom with a four-poster bed, master bathroom, reading corner and living room, terrace with dining area and relaxation area with sun loungers and wonderful views of the valley.

Descending the outdoor stairs and crossing the garden you will find the “Il Giardino” apartment, with a bedroom, large eat-in kitchen, bathroom and living room with fireplace.

The “Foresteria,” a newly constructed completely independent building offering total privacy, contains two beautiful apartments, “La Pergola” and “Il Rosmarino,” both complete with a double bedroom, large bathroom, living room with kitchenette and lovely private outdoor spaces surrounded by nature.

The whole property has new fixtures and windows, keeping the character of the original structure, but with the highest possible energy efficiency.

The main building also houses a large room currently used as a pantry, which connects the ground floor to the upper level and the parking area. The second floor of the Villa, former the “Belle étage”, provides a sixth apartment, where the manager of the business now lives, with three bedrooms, a living area and a bathroom.

The property is surrounded by a lush private park of over 15,000 square meters that encloses, in addition to the large Infinity pool of 10 x 5 meters equipped with sun beds and umbrellas, a small dipping pool, two basins for therapeutic foot baths, outdoor shower, a bocce court, a vegetable garden, numerous fruit and olive trees, a grand terrace with stone-mason barbecue and pizza oven and countless other cozy sitting corners with panoramic views.
The former private chapel is now a sanctuary dedicated to meditation, yoga and inner peace, fully embodying the vision of the current owners in having transformed the Villa into a space of tranquility, respect and mindfulness.

The property is located in the heart of western Liguria, in a delightful hillside setting surrounded by olive trees, chestnut groves, and Mediterranean scents. It is located 15 kilometers from the sea and borders the municipality of Garlenda, a town famous for its Golf Club and refined tourist facilities.
Also within a short distance are the beautiful seaside and tourist resorts of Alassio and Finale Ligure, with the renowned beaches of Bergeggi and Varigotti, with crystal-clear water.
The closest private airport is Villanova d’Albenga – Riviera, which is just 10 km from the Villa. To reach the nearest international Airports in Genoa and Nice it takes about 1 hour drive in either direction, “Cristoforo Colombo” being 98 km and “Nice Côte d’Azur” 132 km away.
