A luxury retreat on the Italian riviera, this is a destination in itself. Perched on the hills above sunny Alassio, this C19th estate has the most breath-taking views over the Ligurian sea. With magical botanical gardens, birdsong, and intoxicating aromas, you'll live out your very own watercolour fantasy in this hillside paradise.

"Enjoy morning walk along the coast to Laigueglia, which takes around half an hour or so. Enjoy an alfresco coffee, potter around the shops before making your way leisurely back to Alassio"

The hillside gardens offer a tropical oasis, where nature is abundant and the air is scented with sweet floral notes. Cool off in the plunge pool, or book a relaxing spa treatment.

All of the rooms are different from one another, with unique interior decors to reflect the colourful character of the property and its Anglo-Indian influences. This is definitely a place where you can spend a few days looking out over the sparkling sea, with a cocktail in hand, and not feel the need to do much else!

Away from the hustle and bustle of the vibey seaside town of Alassio, this is a luxurious retreat brimming with Mediterranean flora and exotic evergreen. Garden tours can be arranged for all hotel guests, which we highly recommended. There is an emphasis on bespoke service here, so your every need will be catered to during your stay at Villa Della Pergola.

The hotel's 'Nove Restaurant' is a delight! This gourmet restaurant was born out of a meeting with chef Giorgio Servetto and Villa della Pergola. The emphasis is on quality ingredients and seasonal menus. There are a number of tasting menus available, featuring a blend of Ligurian and Piedmontese cuisine. We highly advised pre-booking the restaurant. Breakfast is a feast of delicious pastries, cold cuts and cheese, salads, cooked breakfast, great coffee and is best taken outside on the terrace, where you can soak up the sun-drenched view at the same time....

If you are looking for a hidden gem tucked away on the Italian Riviera where you can spend a few days at one with nature, then this is the place.

Simply put, escapism at it's finest.
