Villa Imperiale
Profile

The Villa is located in the renowned area of Roma Imperiale, inside the exclusive natural environment of pine woods of Versilia, just 2 minutes from the sea and 5 minutes from the center of Forte dei Marmi. Set in a private park of 3000 square meters among tall pine, oak trees and palm trees, there is a private parking and a large covered gazebo for outdoor dining with adjoining barbecue.

Area Information

Forte, so-called by its inhabitants and regulars, is a style - aside from being a town - from which tourism can't be left aside, but goes far beyond it. Holidays in Forte dei Marmi started in late Nineteenth Century, when noble Tuscan families started spending Summer months in the mild and salubrious climate, and the town became immediately cradle of élite and intellectual tourists. Personalities such as Ardengo Soffici, Eugenio Montale, Carlo Carrà, Gabriele D’Annunzio, Henry Moore started to be regular guests of Forte deiMarmi's cafes, pine woods and beaches. In the Sixties, due to the Italian economic boom, Forte changed with the mood of the time, becoming a fashion and fun resort, but still preserving its unique and outstanding glamour and elegance. The beautiful villas built in its quiet and sheltered roads are still passed on through generation of upper-class families such as the Agnelli's. Nowadays 'Forte' continues to preserve its style and reputation. Property is valued at higher standards than anywhere else in Italy, but the town if never overdeveloped. Its antique mansions, its single floor villas, its secluded gardens, its understated center retain all the charm of the old days: nature, blue skies and sea, green woods, pastel coloured villas, the easiness of a lifestyle at an easy pace to be lived on foot or bicycle. Forte dei Marmi is many things at once. It has an elegant city center and trendy clubs, quiet beaches blessed by the superb view of the Apuan Alpes; it's home to common people and to celebrities who return every year, protected by the discretion of its inhabitants. Paradise for families thanks to its gently sloping beach, center of designer's boutiques and local craftsmanship (to be discovered in its renown Wednesday market), Forte dei Marmi is also congress center, and home to all-year round classy and sophisticated tourism.

Heating   Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

Water and Electricity    Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

 

Internet Connection   Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
