The Tower is considered one of the most beautiful Villas of the Cinque Terre for its position, overlooking the sea, vineyards and olive tree hills. This wonderful Villa is a Tower built in 1901 by a cousin of Eugenio Montale, famous Italian poet, journalist, music critic who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1975 . La Torre dei Merli was an ancient astronomical observatory which was transformed into a house in the 1960’s.
The access is from Via Privata Montale opening on a path where we have a private car parking spot. From the path another gate introduces us to a manicured lawn and the tower appears in front of us.
The big front door opens on the ground floor, which is entirely occupied by a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with shower. The opposite window door opens on the back of the tower where we have a big outdoor table with umbrella and spacious BBQ area.
From the kitchen floor we start our climb to the upper levels of the tower. We find two amazing panoramic living rooms, one master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, one twin bedroom, one triple bedroom and one bathroom serving the two bedrooms.
The top terrace offers the best view on Cinque Terre coastline one may desire. All guests reaching it for the first time, remain breathless at the sight of the touching views.
Good to know
The furniture of the entire property is classy and refined, offering a special cuddling atmosphere of total relaxation and peace.
Only fans are available at this property, but, being a tower in a prominent and windy area, it’s sufficient to open opposite windows in order to get fresh air flowing through and cool down the spaces.
Torre dei Merli guests have a special VIP access to the Circolo Velico Yacht Club below the villa. Against preferred entrance fee, guests can benefit of the exclusive private equipped beach and an excellent restaurant service. Reservation is mandatory.
Sunsets and starry nights will offer unique romance to Torre dei Merli privileged guests.
