Owner description: Special opening on Friday 27th and Saturday, January 28 from 02.30 PM to 05.30 PM. Acquired by the Province of Imperia in 2002, the villa has been open for the first time to the public on January 17, 2010. The complete recovery of the noble plans, in full respect of their original features, it again revealed the splendor and sophisticated opulence. Called "stone" Circus for the many references to the circus world that can be identified in many architectural details (lamps, columns, decorations, balustrades, uneven, frescoes ...), influenced by Art Nouveau, but undeniably also plagued by the taste of artists contemporary Grock. The complete recovery of the garden, both from the point of view of the flora and for the consolidation of facilities, allows today to rediscover the atmosphere designed by the same Adrien Wettach, of which tells a great passion for plants. The well-defined walkways invite to walks, while all around the columns melted, the bold arches, absolutely unique decorations, fountains and a pond with its bridge of oriental inspiration, they are the completion of a striking setting and fabulous. The palatial mansion and original greatest clowns of "Grock" history, reborn thanks to a cultural project, based on new technologies .. In Villa restored, was set up a path, immersive and magical dedicated to professionals of the circus and, in particular , the art of the clown. The Villa is also open during the weekdays by reservation only for groups with a minimum of 10 participants.

“What a location for a wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

The wedding I attended was held in Villa Grock, what a place to hold a wedding the gounds seemed to be specially designed for such an event. The ceramoney and reception were all held outdoors which added to the atmosphere and even a brief thunderstorm could not take away from a magical night.
