Weddings in historical villas
Getting married in the fabulous Villa Hanbury at the center of the Hanbury Gardens
Villa Hanbury, placed very close to the sea, surrounded by the same botanical gardens created by Sir Thomas Hanbury (1832-1907), a rich businessman from London that built his wealth in Shanghai, is raised upon the promontory of the Mortola, on the Ligurian coast, a few miles away from the French Border. The gardens occupy a surface of 18 hectares, included in the territory of Ventimiglia, in the province of Imperia.
Wedding Ventimiglia: Villa Hanbury
The earth heads downwards from hill to sea, as it is typical of the Ligurian coast. The landscape is typically English styled, with irregular paths and romantic furnishings, pergolas and patios with a scenic view of the sea on the background. The park is also crossed by a section of the ancient Via Julia Augusta. The palazzotto of the Marchesi Orengo di Ventimiglia (the main building of the property) has been respected and kept almost untouched, making it more comfortable with the add on of new building elements, enhancing the tower to make it more scenic, the terraces, the arched gallery and the colonnade at the entrance. It now belongs to, as well as the rest of the property, to the Botanical Institute of the University of Genoa.
