As earthy and generous as its surroundings

With magical views of the Ligurian countryside and the sea from all around, this is one for your Italian Riviera escape. This carefully redesigned villa for rent in Italy offers an enchanting mix of Italian country life and Scandinavian inspired style. Architect Monika Unger has infused this home with a modern lightness while celebrating its old soul by gently peeling away layers to expose cool, earthy stone walls and warm wooden beams. We love that she layered on textiles in generous, welcoming colors, tying the spaces together with a relaxed vibe.

Description

From its perch on a Ligurian hilltop, this villa for rent in Italy overlooks  stunning panoramic views of the mountains and the Mediterranean in the distance with steps that lead from the property down into the picturesque town of Castiglione Chiavarese.

The late 18th century structure was originally a country manor with remnants of its rustic former construction elegantly integrated into the modern restoration. 

With a background in environmental design and passion for post Bauhaus modernism, Milan based architect and designer Monika Unger completely rebuilt the villa, with a keen perspective and approach to contemporary design.

The expansive three story structure’s interiors have been given a bright, uplifting renovation, with over three thousand square feet of airy, interrelated spaces punctuated with the original beams and stone.

The ground floor entrance opens into a living room with a double-sided fireplace and a sleek, newly remodeled open kitchen and dining room that opens on to the outdoor terrace and swimming pool. 

The second floor includes a sitting room, three double bedrooms and two baths, while the attic space at the top of the structure has been converted into two double bedrooms and one bath with room for ten guests total.

An extra large retreat with stunning views from every room, everyone can find a favorite spot to relax and enjoy.

Tastefully furnished with a colorful and sophisticated blend of contemporary and vintage Scandinavian pieces, Unger’s passion for mid-century modernist furniture and lighting comes from her design gallery “Be Modern”, a showcase of iconic Scandinavian, Italian and Brazilian style.

Surrounded by rambling terraced gardens and orchards with the pool as a centerpiece, it’s a tranquil place of natural beauty with plenty of peaceful spaces to retreat to and enjoy the scenery.
