Description of buildings
Villa Riviera is a luxurious residence, ideal for one or more families.
The building has two floors above ground, plus annexes with utility areas near the pool.

On the first floor there is a studio with foyer, a second small kitchen, another large bedroom and two bathrooms: if desired, it would be possible to make this area separate from the floor below.
The design of the villa, completed in 2016, is a perfect blend of ancient and modern: some rustic and historic elements, such as the local stone and the frescoes, have been meticulously restored and fit perfectly with the furniture chosen for the property which is included in the sale price and is embellished with marble, botticino marble and exotic woods.
The best feature of this villa, which is situated in a Unesco World Heritage site, is that it is possible to enjoy the sea view and access the outdoor area from almost every room, both on the ground floor and the floor above, due to the large terraces or the porch that provides access to the pretty pool area.
In addition to the main building, there is also a large storeroom and an underground garage, accessible via a second driveway.
The villa is surrounded by over 26,000 sq.m of grounds, with terraced areas and mediterranean woodland plants such as jasmine and cactus, with decorative elements made from local rock.
Around 2,600 sq.m is flat, manicured lawn, featuring a large saltwater infinity pool (14 x 7 m), with hydromassage area in travertine tiles, plus a clay tennis court.
The ground floor also features a pretty porch with columns that measures 49 sq.m, with a terrace of the same dimensions directly above, plus two other large terraces on each side, all adding up to 211 sq.m in total.
All the outdoor areas provide a stunning view of from Levante to Ponente and even as far as Corsica on clear and calm days.
The villa benefits from two driveways, and a large covered parking area that can also be used as a helipad if necessary.
