In 1993 the sisters Orietta and Raffaella Rimassa decided to open the doors of Villa Durazzo in Sestri Levante, a family home usually reserved to parties with friends and to special occasions. This is the beginning of the Esedra di Santo Stefano, the company which manages the Stately Home.
The Estate breathed new life, restoring the traditional farming, the ancient olive trees and the farmhouses. These were once the homes of the farmers working on the fields, but now they welcome anyone who wants to spend a pleasant holiday in the Riviera Ligure di Levante. These are now the Dimore dell'Esedra.

Welcome to Villa Durazzo.
The dark green shades of the big ancient park and the scents of the Mediterranean gardens welcome you, along with the warm and sunny light coming from the sea.
At a short distance from the Cinque Terre, in the heart of the Riviera Ligure, where the sea leaves room for the olive trees, the small dry stone walls, the narrow streets scented with thyme, sweet marjoram, rosemary and other perfumes. Villa Durazzo is the heart of the estate and in its park, one of the largest in Liguria, you can admire all the variety surrounding it.
Hazels, oak trees, holm-oaks, camphor trees, a wood following a tree-lined avenue, a meadow following a wonderful citrus orchard and a lot of fruit trees. The baroque joy of spring, the sunny quietness of the summer, the foliage in the warm autumn colours, the mild climate in winter.
In Villa Durazzo time stopped to let you dream again.
