> Villa Poggi >
The historic Villa Poggi was built in the 17th century, when Albisola was a favorite summer residence for influential Genoese families. Family-owned since 1712, it has been restructured several times, and completely restored in the nineties. Care has been taken to maintain the historical style and to integrate changes harmonically. With antique furnishings, it is a particular place in Liguria.
The villa is located 2 miles north of Albisola, on the edge of where the valley begins to open up, in large park-like grounds with vineyards and Mediterranean vegetation. The property is hedged-in by the woods and hills on the back of the Villa, and the mostly dry riverbed of the Riobasco and the road to Sassello beyond; children can play safely here.
Opposite the property lies a beautiful sanctuary, the Santuario della Pace (19th cent., with origins back to the 15th century).
Poggi A sleeps 2 + 3 persons, app. 125 m2, on the mezzanine level.
This is the largest apartment of the villa, with direct access from the park. Large lounge with restored Rococo frescoes, antique furnishings, two sofa beds. Kitchen with fireplace and a sofa bed. Bedroom with double bed and a cot, bathroom. A delightful view through the entire central axis of the villa onto the Santuario della Pace.

Poggi B sleeps 4 + 1 persons, app 115 m2, on the mezzanine level.
This apartment, which features a separate entrance through a side staircase, centers around an annex which was once added by a father of many children. The rooms have partly renewed wood ceilings and windows looking to the park and the surrounding forest.

New in 2009: a historic "salottino", a revived late rococo parlor, giving the apartment a stylish lounge.
