Villa Tanca with Terrace and ViewsVilla - Salita dei Cappuccini 2 - Monterosso
Villa Tanca is a great architectural project from the late 60's - early 70's. A linear construction that develops on two floors.
The Villa is not accessible by car. Cars must be parked in one of Monterosso public car parking areas and the property can only be reached on foot from the promenade or from the old town via an uphill path that connects the old village to the cloister of the Capuchin Friars.
Villa Tanca will amaze you with its large amount of memories that the owners are happy to share with their guests.

Franco Tanca, true son of Monterosso, always dreamed of being able to see the Cinque Terre from his bedroom window. In 1969, his dream came true. This is the reason why he built this villa right on the main square and on the beach of Monterosso. It is also the reason why the house's linear architecture is interrupted at one's bedroom. That room had to face the sea, so that every morning he could wake up to admire the friendly waters of the Mediterranean from his bed.
