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.

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.
