A human wellness machine
In defining the idea behind Villaverde Hotel & Resort, Gabriele Lualdi summarized the uniqueness and the value of the environmental, historical, artistic, and cultural aspects of its location and surroundings, imagining himself and the Resort’s guests immersed in “the most beautiful place on earth”. Villaverde Hotel & Resort lies in Fagagna, one of Italy’s most charming hamlets, a strategic point to be reached by car, private plane or helicopter Beauty, suggestion, and history these are the pillars of the area. The resort was designed to blend in with its landscape and to save energy: despite its high-tech style, the architecture and the materials used to build it, perfectly disappears into its surroundings. The photovoltaic system fitted into the car park beams is original and easy on the eye, while the grass-covered roof forms a continuous whole with the golf course. Designed by Architect Alessio Princic as a “human wellness machine”, the project has been conceived with the greatest respect for the environment and combines geothermic and photovoltaic power supplies that reduce fossil fuel combustion to zero, while adopting unusual materials and colors, ample glass surfaces, and outdoor areas for an intense experience of light, airiness, balance, and liberty. The Privilegium restaurant offers guests the original experience of dining in a sophisticated, home-like kitchen designed especially for show-cooking; alternatively, guests may choose the Villaverde Bar&restaurant, which is about 200m away and reached via a bridge linking the Resort to the golf course. The Resort is a model with a focus on health prevention to support health and well-being across life span. As a member of the “Health Care Prevention” Club, guests are encouraged to undergo medical tests, attend the gym and the swimming pool; the physicians look after their physical health having access to individual records in a database available to them also in the evenings and at the weekends. A wide range of medical specialties are offered to both guests and members of the “Health Care Prevention” Club. In addition to personalized facial and body treatments proposed after careful analysis of the individual’s needs, day- hospital aesthetic surgery with safe and reliable mini-invasive techniques that guarantee excellent results without requiring any hospitalization.
