The property is located on the hill of Arenzano in a private park, surrounded by beautiful ancient olive trees. The position is wonderful and ranges from east to west over the sea and the village of Arenzano.

The villa, built in the years 1963–64, is a project by the famous architect and founding father of Italian design Marco Zanuso, and it is considered one of the most beautiful art works of his entire career. Refined example of the “red brick architecture”, a distinguishing mark of many of his works including the Piccolo Theater in Milan, the building has as its fulcrum one of the majestic millenary olive trees that surround the house. Zanuso built a large patio around it and developed the whole villa as if the tree was “an ideal psychological center of gravitation”. The structure follows the natural slope of the hill and integrates with the external space; the terraces, the water garden, the strips of olive trees are one with the building architecture.

Still lot of strips of land with olive trees, cedars of Lebanon and citrus fruits, gently slope down around the house.


Villa is spread over 3 levels, connected by beautifully designed internal stairs. Each level is also equipped with independent external access. The structure good for transformation the villa into two or more residental units. On the upper floor, which has direct access from the street level, there is a studio overlooking a large terrace that sweeps over the sea and the surrounding greenery, with a hallway and a bathroom.

The main floor includes the double living room with a majestic fireplace, the dining room overlooking the water garden and a large custom kitchen with a wood oven. There is also an ample service area, with direct entrance from the outside, which includes two bedrooms, a bathroom and a laundry room.

On the ground floor there are four en-suite bedrooms, each with a walk-in closet. The master bedroom, which has direct access to the garden. A beautiful ample room with bookcases looks out onto the garden through a very large window.

      How to buy property with Tranio


      Send us an enquiry with an approximate description of the property or investment project you’re interested in.

      Meeting the partners

      After clarifying your enquiry, we will introduce you to our partners and/or local agents.

      Offer selection

      We will help you to select suitable options. Tranio does not charge a commission for this — the property price remains the same as if you contacted our partner directly.

      Viewing tour

      You then view the property or properties you have chosen. Our partners or agents from Tranio's European offices will meet you in situ.

      Transaction closure

      Having chosen the best property, you will sign the sales or investment agreement (for development).


      • Can I get a mortgage abroad?

        It depends on the country. For example, German banks willingly offer mortgages to foreigners at 1.5-2 % per annum with LTV up to 70%. Spain offers less favourable terms: the minimum rate for foreigners is 2.5% per annum. The situation is different in Greece: although the law does not prohibit banks from issuing loans, in practice, Greek banks don’t issue loans to local nor foreign property buyers. You can learn about the mortgage terms in your preferred country by contacting Tranio’s local agents.

      • How does the purchase procedure work?

        The purchase procedure depends on the country where you buy property. Generally, after choosing a property you need to sign a preliminary agreement with the seller and carry out a due diligence of the property by checking the relevant documents and the property's technical condition. After that, all parties sign the sales agreement and the notary registers the transaction. As a rule, the purchase registration costs amount to approximately 10% of the property price.

      • Can a residence permit be obtained by buying property?

        In some countries it is possible. Residence-for-property purchase programmes are known as Golden Visas programmes. Greece, Spain, Latvia, and Portugal offer the most popular Golden Visas in Europe. The Greek residence permit is the cheapest and can be obtained by buying a property worth at least €250,000, while organising all of the documents costs about €19,000. Certain countries offer citizenship to property buyers — for example, an investor can get their hands on a Cypriot passport by buying a property worth at least €2M.

      • How does Tranio make money if your service is free for the clients?

        We share the commission, which the buyer or the seller (depending on the country) pays to our partners — foreign real estate agencies. The price of this service is the same as if you contacted the agency directly — this is an important condition and applies to all of our partnership agreements.

      • Who guarantees the transaction security?

        The transaction security is guaranteed by the notary who draws up the sales agreement and checks the information on the previous and current owners of the property, any outstanding restrictions, mortgage, and third-party encumbrances. Tranio is not responsible for the parties involved in the transaction.
