Among the different marbles, stuccos and stones, there is a Ligurian story.
Anny’s grandfather, Bartolomeo Garibaldi, built it entirely in stone on three levels for Genoese Durante family in 1933: in the beginning it was called Villa Paradiso, because of the name of the suburb (that Diano Marina afterwards absorbed) where it was the most distinguished building.
Ricciotti Garibaldi, Anny’s father and outstanding citizen of Diano Marina (he was twice Major), bought it in 1972 and renovated with all due respect for its materials, its story, its architectural harmonies, like for example the bifora-windows with their decorated mullions and round arches.
Nowadays every room maintains its original exclusivity, embellished by books, photographs, paintings, ornaments and other objects that narrate the story of the Villa and Garibaldi family during the 20th century.
The arches, among the rooms, soften the play of perspectives so that the movement becomes more flowing and rich in discoveries.
On the second floor, the antique study of Anny’s father leads to the large terrace: a place that our Customers could use as a solarium, where having breakfast or simply talking together.
The wide central corridor, that leads to the different rooms, has two sofas, an armchair, many plants and a chest of three drawers, dating back to the end of 19th century, where every morning we serve breakfast with 20th century porcelain tableware and embroidered tablecloths.
