Villa Hygiea



HYGIEA - we found her and fell in love with her, even though she proved difficult at times. To preserve the traditional LATE 19TH CENTURY VILLA in idyllic surroundings, we had to give it a modern-day makeover. Previously used as a private home and then B&B, it now houses FOURFLATS with LAKE VIEWS to let all year round. For those who wish to enjoy LAKE WÖRTHERSEE as a SUMMER RETREAT there are also two summer flats for rent in the VILLETTA. The villa’s logo consists of the name HYGIEA, the goddess of health, together with the TREE OF LIFE. It can also be seen in the tower’s stucco work. What we most associate with HYGIEA and the TREE is a LOVE OF LIFE! It inspired us while we were restoring and preserving the property. With the gardens, views over the lake as far as the Karawanken Range and Julian Alps, idyllic private BEACH and central location in Pörtschach, Villa Hygiea is indeed fit for a goddess. Or anyone who loves life on the lake.
