This exceptional property, located in one of the most sought-after areas of Versilia, offers an unparalleled blend of comfort and exclusivity. Forte dei Marmi has long been one of Europe’s premier travel destinations, globally renowned for its sophistication and style. Since the late 18th century, the locale has attracted nobility, diplomats, businessmen, and celebrities, all of whom have built stunning villas nestled in the shelter of pine forests. Its fine sands serve as an idyllic backdrop for both leisure and relaxation. Forte dei Marmi is not just about natural beauty but also a hub of cosmopolitan life. Its high-fashion shops and boutiques attract tourists just as much as nearby art cities like Lucca, Pisa, and Florence. Adding to the allure is its vibrant nightlife, which has long been a magnet for global celebrities, making this area a cornerstone for the international jet set.
Situated in an exclusive residential area of the esteemed city of Forte dei Marmi, Villa Virginia is a sumptuous property that embodies both elegance and modern luxury. Located just 1.2 km from the sea and 2.3 km from the city center, the villa is accessible in less than 10 minutes by bicycle. This exquisite residence, which showcases classic “Forte dei Marmi” architecture adorned with high-quality finishes, underwent a full renovation in 2021. The property spans 240 sqm and is surrounded by an expansive garden covering over 500 sqm. Upon entering the villa, you are greeted by a bright and spacious living and dining area. A state-of-the-art kitchen is fully equipped to entertain guests in style. The interiors are the masterpiece of the architectural firm Barberini & Gunnell, renowned for their artistic and collective designs. They have transformed this classical villa into a “living gallery,” featuring a sculptural dining table shaped like a colossal stainless-steel spider, accompanied by a unique console in precious green quartzite that matches the kitchen counter. A coffee table with rare orange onyx was showcased at Art Miami 2019. Villa Virginia’s interiors are fresh and cosmopolitan yet exude comfort, giving off the ambiance of a luxurious seaside home adorned with sculptural vases and ornaments crafted from the famed local Statuario marble. From the bright, open-concept kitchen, one can access the beautiful and private garden that comes complete with its own bathroom, shower, laundry facilities, and wine cellar.
The garden of Villa Virginia is a verdant retreat filled with native plants and trees, crafting a pleasant microclimate for those warm summer days. This outdoor space offers the perfect sanctuary for spending leisurely time in utmost privacy, featuring a delightful blend of sunlit and shaded areas to refresh oneself. A charming vine-covered portico wraps around three sides of the building and boasts a meticulously designed patio—a classic “Al Fresco” space—that serves as an outdoor dining area capable of seating 12 people, perfectly equipped for enjoyable and relaxing evenings with family and friends. Beyond the spectacular living area on the ground floor, you’ll find two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each bedroom emanates its own unique ambiance and style, furnished with high-quality pieces that elevate the living experience. Ascending the elegant Italian Trani stone staircase, which is consistently featured throughout the villa, leads you to two additional double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms—one boasting its own private balcony—and a master bedroom complete with an en-suite bathroom and access to a stunning panoramic terrace. This spacious 30-sqm terrace provides breathtaking views of the Apuan Alps, revealing the white Carrara mountains, the vibrant garden, and its flourishing surroundings. To round off this exceptional Forte dei Marmi property, the villa offers expansive entrance grounds and a parking space with a capacity for two cars. Villa Virginia truly represents a luxurious residence where art meets functionality, nestled in one of Europe’s most sought-after coastal towns.
