The Castello Devachan was built and designed by the engineer Pietro Agosti (from Sanremo) with the help of engineer Winter. The building developer was Costanzio Sappia. The architecture of the castle was in the liberty style. The Castello Devachan stands majestically on the hill of Berigo, a few minutes from the centre of Sanremo, set amongst other beautiful villas, between palm trees, orange trees, cacti, banana, and other tropical and Mediterranean plants.


The Castello Devachan was purchased in 1890 by the English Count Orazio Savile of Mexborough. The elder Lord Mexborough acquired the castle to live there with his young spouse Lady Ivy, despite his age of 75 years. The Count of Mexborough had become a Buddhist after having lived in India for thirty years, it was he who named the Castello Devachan. Before it was called Villa Silvia Mexborough, after his first wife.


On April 19, 1920, the First World War Allies leaders, working through the League of Nations, gathered at the Castello Devachan in San Remo, Italy to carve up Turkey.

The British received the mandate for Iraq, and also Palestine, under a provision creating a Jewish homeland.

Location & area

The resort town of San Remo may be small in stature, but it is grandiose in style and atmosphere. The streets of San Remo are lined with world-class hotels, exotic gardens, and seaside promenades. Long a haven for European aristocracy, San Remo is located on the western rim of the Italian Riviera, about 10 miles from Monaco and 30 miles east of Nice, France. The old town area has a rich mediaeval heritage. The modified cathedral of San Siro originally dates back to the thirteenth century. The interior preserves a Crucifix by Maragliano and a canvas by Pancalino showing San Siro surrounded by other saints. The single-nave sanctuary of the Madonna della Costa goes back to the seventeenth century. Here you can admire frescoes by Giacomo Antonio Boni and a painting from the Barnaba da Modena School (late fourteenth century) as well as paintings by Domenico Fiasella. One of the most popular sights in San Remo is the famous Municipal Casino, housed in an art nouveau building.

The Castello Devachan - A guest's comments: I want to document how much Olga & I enjoyed our stay at Castello Devachan. As well you know, I have a rather extensive knowledge of the Castello, visually, from having created the painting for you relating to the 1920 League of Nations' conference there after World War I. I was not prepared, however, for the beauty of the Castello & the wonderful accommodations your place provided. Olga and I thoroughly enjoyed the facilities, the patio and garden, the magnificent views from the dining room and patio, and the feeling of total privacy one experienced. One warning to all who stay there....The master bedroom is so very conducive to sleep, one can miss most of the day!! Total luxury and quiet. As this was our first visit to San Remo (not, of course to Italy), we both fell in love with the city. It had everything and was not overwhelming. The proximity to other towns and to Genova was a definite plus. We both agree that Castello Devachan was one of favorite stops - David Schor FL. USA
