Overlooking the Gulf of Tigullio, in Santa Margherita Ligure, there is a historic villa hidden in the greenery of the park that surrounds it: this is Villa Durazzo, built in 1678 for the noble family of marquises from which it takes its name, and enriched over the centuries by those who lived there: in fact, the arrangement of the park dates back to the 1900s, one of the most beautiful in Italy, rich in exotic plants, cobbled paths, flower boxes and statues. What makes the Villa particularly suitable for an exclusive and private wedding is its immediate proximity to the Church of San Giacomo di Corte, a small parish church built in Baroque style, capable of making a religious wedding ceremony incredibly touching.
The interiors of the Villa are characterised by the presence of unique pieces and works of art of great importance, located within rooms that were occupied by historical figures of great importance, such as Margaret of Savoy, to whom a room is dedicated; period furniture, Murano chandeliers and precious frescoes allow guests to experience a journey back in time, immersed in elegance and luxury.
Outside, the lush Italian-style gardens can host receptions and aperitifs, while the romantic English-style woodland on the hillside lends a dreamy aura to the Villa. Finally, a splendid terrace where elegant receptions can be hosted overlooks a cobbled risse also known as risseu, the typical Ligurian pavement of black and white stones.
