If you are staying in Santa Margherita for more than a couple of days, you should make the steep but short climb up to this elegant old villa and its gardens, You'll enjoy an oasis of calm, shady and luxuriant vegetation and a wonderful view over the harbour and the bay. Although the interior of the villa is pleasant but... More

Beautiful gardens of an old palazzio ( currently used by the university so no access inside ) Lovely cool places to sit and admire the views in a very peaceful setting, but it was a long trek up on a hot afternoon

A large villa set in a terraced park. Some rooms have been refurbished but they are sparsely furnished. Many paths in the grounds are in need of renovation.

A fantastic setting with luxuriant plants and flowers. Definitely worths a glimpse before lunch! The 18 century atmosphere is felt every corner!

The gardens of this Villa are very nice and the view of the city is very beautiful as well. The day we were there they were shooting a film, which was very amusing for us to watch at.

Very nice grounds around the villa and church, you might want to check on the closing times. We got locked in and had to call security to let us out

We stayed at a the Hotel Mediteraneo at the bottom of the hill near the Villa and found the gardens and building quite delightful. Old - it was built in 1678, and maybe a little weathered over time, but gracious and timeless. We were on our own the day we visited and wandered through the rooms admiring the works of... More
