Villa Alba is located in the centre of Gardone Riviera, one of the most important towns on Lake Garda.
The famous poet Gabriele d'Annunzio, by building in 1921 "il Vittoriale degli Italiani", the emblem of his inimitable life, thrust Gardone into the limelight on the international cultural stage and led to it becoming a tourist gem, today still able to attract 200,000 visitors each year from all over the world.
Villa Alba was built at the beginning of the last century under the name Villa Ruhland, whose translation "peace in the landscape" is emblematic for the atmosphere that one can breathe here.
Set in a vast and luxuriant garden, "Villa Alba" is unique: a majestic facade with colonnade and pediment decorated with bas-reliefs offering us a fragment of the Parthenon.
The coup de théâtre is the almost identical reproduction of the Caryatids of the Erechtheum. A secular temple of beauty, which could have also hosted the Emperor Franz Joseph if the outbreak of the world war had not subverted the expectations. During German occupation between 1943 - 45, the rooms were converted into a military transmission centre and radio station.
Enriched with artistic fountains and a sumptuous staircase, it offers an ideal setting to make any type of event unforgettable.
