Close to the sea, just a stone’s throw from the centre of Sanremo, Hotel Villa Sylva is an 18th-century villa that has been transformed into an elegant boutique hotel. We love the lush gardens, where you can relax beneath ancient trunks and leafy palm fronds with your favourite book. The villa’s original features, including charming frescoes, are perfectly complemented by the contemporary white walls and wooden floors, and the hotel staff are particularly helpful and attentive. Whether exploring the sun-kissed sophistication of Sanremo, or treating yourself at the hotel’s wellness centre, Hotel Villa Sylva is an ideal getaway on the Italian Riviera.
Enjoy a glass of Prosecco or a cocktail at the bar or on the outdoor terrace before heading to the hotel’s restaurant to eat. Antique furniture and paintings are the perfect backdrop to the fresh white linen of the tables and chairs, conjuring a time when Sanremo was popular with royal and aristocratic holidaymakers in the 19th-century. Traditional Italian and Ligurian specialities are served, complemented by a concise wine list.
The bedrooms and suites at hotel Villa Sylva are spacious and full of natural light. Some rooms boast outdoor terraces with sea views. Perfect for families, all rooms can accommodate up to four guests.
Bask in the Italian sunshine on the hotel’s terrace, where comfortable sun loungers give wonderful views over Sanremo and the blue sea beyond. The town is particularly famous for its floral abundance, and Hotel Villa Sylva’s colourful and fragrant garden does not disappoint. For an indulgent pampering, head to the hotel’s wellness centre, where you can treat yourself to a session in the sauna, steam room or hydro pool; alternatively, take advantage of one of the many traditional and alternative beauty treatments on offer.
The hotel is perfectly situated to explore Sanremo. The historic Nobel Villa (home of the famous chemist, and founder of the Nobel Prize) and Villa Ormond are just across the street; both have lush gardens that are well worth a visit. Take in the sea-breeze while promenading along Sanremo’s marina, or climb up to the medieval area of the town, La Pigna, where you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views. For those with an active disposition, the region has a famous bike path spanning 24-kilometres on the old railway track between Ospedaletti and San Lorenze al Mare; the hotel offers a bicycle rental service.
