Welcome Beyond has announced that Villa Rosmarino, a small luxury hotel in Liguria, Italy, has joined its collection of vacation destinations worldwide. The property is located on the peninsula of Portofino, in Italy’s North-Western coastal region.
The property's owner gave up Milan’s big city life for this tranquil retreat. Having been abandoned for 30 years, Villa Rosmarino was restored while retaining its original elements as much as possible. The ground floor of the building used to house a mill producing olive oil. Nowadays, the mill’s grind stones decorate parts of the garden, a place with an infinity swimming pool and grapefruit and magnolia trees.
The property also boasts of unique interiors, including vintage furniture from the ‘50s and ‘60s that join contemporary design pieces. International artists beautify every single room with photographs, paintings or sculptures.
Villa Rosmarino also boasts a sunny breakfast terrace with views on Golfo Paradiso, and a library.
The village is just a 10-minute walk away from the property and it offers traditional restaurants (often visited by locals), shops and bars. Guests can go swimming, have a romantic sunset picnic at one of the coast’s beaches or explore historic monuments in the surrounding area. Also worth a visit is the city of Genova with its medieval churches, vintage stores and delicious pastry shops.
