As earthy and generous as its surroundings

With magical views of the Ligurian countryside and the sea from all around, this is one for your Italian Riviera escape. This carefully redesigned villa for rent in Italy offers an enchanting mix of Italian country life and Scandinavian inspired style. Architect Monika Unger has infused this home with a modern lightness while celebrating its old soul by gently peeling away layers to expose cool, earthy stone walls and warm wooden beams. We love that she layered on textiles in generous, welcoming colors, tying the spaces together with a relaxed vibe.

Description

From its perch on a Ligurian hilltop, this villa for rent in Italy overlooks stunning panoramic views of the mountains and the Mediterranean in the distance with steps that lead from the property down into the picturesque town of Castiglione Chiavarese.

The late 18th-century structure was originally a country manor with remnants of its rustic former construction elegantly integrated into the modern restoration. 

With a background in environmental design and passion for post Bauhaus modernism, Milan based architect and designer Monika Unger completely rebuilt the villa, with a keen perspective and approach to contemporary design.

The expansive three story structure’s interiors have been given a bright, uplifting renovation, with over three thousand square feet of airy, interrelated spaces punctuated with the original beams and stone.

The ground floor entrance opens into a living room with a double-sided fireplace and a sleek, newly remodeled open kitchen and dining room that opens on to the outdoor terrace and swimming pool. 

The second floor includes a sitting room, three double bedrooms and two baths, while the attic space at the top of the structure has been converted into two double bedrooms and one bath with room for ten guests total.

An extra large retreat with stunning views from every room, everyone can find a favorite spot to relax and enjoy.

Tastefully furnished with a colorful and sophisticated blend of contemporary and vintage Scandinavian pieces, Unger’s passion for mid-century modernist furniture and lighting comes from her design gallery “Be Modern”, a showcase of iconic Scandinavian, Italian and Brazilian style.

Surrounded by rambling terraced gardens and orchards with the pool as a centerpiece, it’s a tranquil place of natural beauty with plenty of peaceful spaces to retreat to and enjoy the scenery.

    Gorgeous House

    The house is just beautiful in a lovely location at the top of small Italian village. The host couldn’t have been more helpful and responsive. What a fabulous family trip!! Don’t hesitate to rent this house if you are looking for a sophisticated house in a small Italian village and want an authentic experience.

    Incredible house in charming village…

    The house is wonderfully located, with a superb panoramic view: the sea is one side, the mountains on the other. Looking at the green hills, swimming in the pool is delightful. The house is an elegant mixture between a traditional Ligurian house and a modern and very comfortable villa. All in all, we had a marvelous stay in Castiglione!

    The Best!

    Having rented houses on three continents, in almost a dozen countries over the years – this was the best! This is not a rental, rather it is a home, with all you need. From kitchen appliances to olive oil and pasta in the pantry. Every positive comment previously made is true. No need to be repetitive here. If you choose this home you won’t regret it.

    We did not want to leave!

    Villa Leopoldo is a beautiful place for people of all ages! We stayed for a week with two families with teenaged children (11 in our party which the house easily accomodated). Everybody loved the place with the fanastic views and the hardest part was convincing the others to leave the house and enjoy the surroundings. It was great to see everyone finding his favorite spot and enjoying the place. The design, the pool, all the rooms, the views, the outside table, the BBQ place, the groceries upon our arrival, we all loved it. It was great meeting Monika as well, she is a lovely person.

    The location of the property is perfect for sightseeing as well and the environment offers so much. We followed Monika’ s advises from the vademecum and visited Sestri Levante (a great and very lively town), we took a train to Cinqueterre and walked the trail, we took a boat from Sestri Levante to the awesome Portofino. Highly recommended, this villa is definitely the ultimate holiday place!

    Beautiful and peaceful villa.

    10 of us spent a week at this beautiful property celebrating my husbands 60th birthday.

    Perfect in every way … The photos did not do it justice!

    Very comfortable with excellent facilities. And a daily housekeeper.

    Stunning views were ‘the icing on the cake’!

    We reluctantly left after a week to continue on our travels across Italy and would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

    Ps .. Ask for Luisa to come prepare a meal at the property. Very special.

    Enjoy!

    Casa Leopoldo is a beautiful villa!

    We recently stayed at Casa Leopoldo for a week in June with a large party (8 adults, 4 children). The villa is really beautiful- just like the pictures, and more! We had more than enough room for all of us and were able to spread out throughout the villa. There are so many private spaces, both inside and out, and we never felt cramped. Monika was a great host and left us well stocked for our first day and was extremely responsive to any questions asked during our stay. The grounds of the villa are gorgeous and our boys loved playing outside. The pool is stunning as well. It is a bit of a trek to get to the beaches, however we felt the villa was a good “home base” to go everywhere we wanted. It was always nice coming back to the villa, that was cleaned daily while we were out I would add, and relax in our large and very private space. We cooked a lot during our stay and I have to say it’s one of the most well-stocked kitchens I’ve ever been in- possibly better than mine at home! We had a lovely dinner from Chef Luisa and her mother on our last evening as well.

    Thank you Monika, we enjoyed our stay very much!
