Real Estate & Property
Mediterranean magic

Discerning investors are being offered a “rare opportunity” to acquire exclusive residences on the slopes of Lake Garda, which is not only Italy’s largest lake but also an area of breathtaking Mediterranean beauty and hotspot for the elite.

Located on the outskirts of the city of Verona, Villa Eden Gardone has been designed by renowned international architects David Chipperfield, Matteo Thun and Richard Meier and ATP Sphere giving the project exclusivity and luxury. 

It consists of several villas, each of which represents a unique work of art, and a six-star clubhouse with a restaurant, spa and wellness area – all with magnificent views of Lake Garda.

Villa Eden Gardone is located in a 78,000-sq-m park which is adorned with olive trees. Each of the villas have high quality furnishings including air-conditioning, fireplace and an alarm system. 

The architects have individually designed each of the luxury villas, which sit at different levels, to the highest of standards.

In the centre of the ensemble is the clubhouse with its five apartments created by Milanese architect Thun. Its services include a wellness centre with a spa and a beauty farm and a restaurant with a wine cellar, a library with a cigar room and a terrace with breathtaking panoramic vistas. 

Offering exclusivity and privacy, the complex has 24-hour security, gardener service, cleaning and laundry service, concierge, child care and a putting green. The landscape design is created by renowned garden designer Enzo Eneo. Located on the south-western coast of Lake Garda, the resort is close to two well-known golf courses, Garda Golf and Bogliaco.

Commenting on the project, Thun says: “It was a great challenge for me to design the project in one of the most beautiful locations on Lake Garda. The opportunity to work with the topography of an ancient olive grove together with the exceptional cooperation with colleagues from across the globe makes this a project which is unique in Europe.”

Gardone Riviera is an exclusive destination that has been famous since the 19th century and is still popular among the well-heeled, with Lake Garda offering a range of wellness and sporting facilities from fishing, hiking, climbing and biking to the best water sports in Europe.

Lake Garda is a 30-minute drive from Verona while the fashionable Milan, Italy’s second largest city, is two hours away. Developed by the Signa Group, Villa Eden Gardone is scheduled for completion by the end of this year.

The apartments cost 2.47 million ($3.08 million) while the villas are priced between 4.1 million and 15.63 million ($5.12 million and $19.51 million).
