HISTORICAL MENTION

 

In 1875 two Scottish noblemen, George Henderson Gibb and General William Montagu Scott McMurdo, were the first British to spend an entire winter in Alassio along with their families. General McMurdo built, designed and constructed the Villa according to the Anglo-Indian principles. When General McMurdo died in Nice in 1894, his family sold the villa to Sir Walter Hamilton-Dalrymple,a Scottish baronet. The Dalrymples maintained ownership of the villa until 1922, when Sir Hew Clifford Hamilton-Dalrymple, 9th baronet, sold the residence to Daniel Hanbury, second child of Sir Thomas Hanbury of Mortola. The Hanbury family clearly gave a major boost to the completion of the Villa's garden, significantly increasing the variety of exotic plants in the park at the Villa.


 

In 1940, at the outbreak of the second world war, the Hanbury family returned to the UK. The widowed Daniel married to his second wife Ruth Hardinge, also from a British family in Alassio. 

In 1946 the Hanburys returned to Alassio, but Daniel died suddenly in 1948, and  left the property to his wife Ruth Hardinge .Ruth returned to live at the Villa and joined a small group of anglo-alassini, guests of her famous spring parties during the flowering of wisteria. In 1925 Alfred Hitchcock filmed scenes from his first film "The Pleasure Garden" on the beach in Alassio and in the park of the Villa and in 1957, the Oscar winning filmmaker Guy Green set "The Snorkel" with Betta St. John, Peter Van Eyck and Mandy Miller in Villa . Author and artist Carlo Levi used the Villa as an annex for his nearby villa in the 1960s and 70s.
