Immersed in a wonderful park of 10,000 square metres, Villa Ghiron is a splendid historic residence dating back to the end of the 19th century, used in the past as a holiday home.
After several years of neglect, the Villa was bought and restored by the current owners, Antonietta and Roberto, who have managed to modernise it while preserving the charm of the period.
As soon as you step through the gate, you will enter a fairytale setting amidst ancient trees, chestnut and beech trees, and fountains.
A natural environment where, among the scents and colours of the forest, deer and squirrels peep out.
Once you have parked your car, the warm welcome of its owners will make you feel immediately at home.
Let us therefore take a detailed look at the services offered by Villa Ghiron in Torriglia.
Villa Ghiron: where nature meets elegance
Villa Ghiron currently offers its guests two bedrooms: a triple room with private bathroom outside, and a double room, with the possibility of adding up to three beds, with private bathroom inside.
The particularity of this last room, is the presence of a fabulous hydromassage tub, for private use, where one can spend a few moments of relaxation.
The correct term, in reality, would not be double but suite as it is a two-roomed room where on one side you will find the bedroom and on the other the relaxation room with the enormous whirlpool bath.
Rooms, spacious and bright, have been elegantly restored while retaining the original flooring and ceiling. The bathrooms are equipped with all modern comforts.
In the morning, you will find a splendid breakfast consisting of croissants, cakes, and the inevitable focaccia genovese.
Antonietta is keen to offer her guests a traditional Italian breakfast.
It may be useful to know that the breakfast room remains at guests’ disposal for the duration of their stay, with cutlery, drinks, fresh fruits and Canestrelletti, the typical sweets of the village of Torriglia.
At any time of the day, therefore, you will find a place where you can sip herbal tea or coffee or eat takeaway.
Additional services at Villa Ghiron
The wonderful park of Villa Ghiron lends itself to moments of relaxation in nature and tranquillity, far from the hustle and bustle of the city.
To fully enjoy the scents and colours of the forest, Antonietta and Roberto have thought of some nice activities you can do inside the park.
These are all activities included in the stay and can be done independently.
One of these is spotting the animals that live in the park, such as fallow deer and squirrels, through binoculars left available to guests.
Another nice activity is the sensory trail among the linden and fir trees. One caresses the foliage, hugs the trunks, walks barefoot on the moss, and breathes in the scent of nature.
Fifteen years of research by doctors at the Nippon Medical School in Tokyo have shown that Forest Bathing – immersion in nature – can reduce stress and depression, lowering blood pressure and heart rate.
For a fortnight, in fact, the chestnut trees in the park produce marvellous chestnuts, which are left for guests to enjoy.
Finally, you will also find mats and guide books for doing basic yoga and pilates exercises.
Additional services for a romantic weekend
On the occasion of a special occasion , or simply as a surprise for your sweetheart, Roberto can have flowers, wine, or cake delivered to your room. Everything you need for a pampering for two.
The service has an additional cost and should be requested a little in advance.
The wonderful natural setting in which Villa Ghiron is immersed also lends itself as a location for a wedding reception.
