Melograno is a lovely one bedroom house. The attractive double bedroom, full of antiques and pictures, looks out onto the hillsides and the Mediterranean sea, and just outside the window, the pomegranate tree and its ruby-red fruit.

The bathroom is well appointed, and the small living room where one can eat is attractively furnished, as is the galley kitchen. But the terrace overlooking the garden is certainly one of the most enjoyable parts of staying in this place, with the nighttime sound of the frogs and the crickets lulling one to sleep.

Further details indoors

The cottage is part of Agriturismo Borgo Muratori. Maura has restaured il Borgo and the cottage with great care, using typical materials of Ligurian architecture such as slate, stone and wood. The furnishing has also been chosen from the furniture of the family Muratorio who has lived there since XIX century.

The terrace overlooks the garden and it is equipped with sun-beds, parasol, table, chairs for quiet dinners alfresco.

In the old olive oil mill the guests can find a WIFI area free of charge and any informations about the area. Maura Muratorio, the owner, has written some books about the English colony on the Italian Riviera, she will be glad to offer her suggestions for making your holiday a really deep immersion in Italian way of life.

The Liguria region

Liguria is a long, thin coastal strip nestling at the foot of Maritime Alps. Western Riviera, close to the French border, is known and appreciated for the climate, the mildest in winter all over Northern Italy.

We suggest you taking the car to reach the natural and historical beauties nearby us, like the medieval village of Cervo Ligure and Diano Castello ( 5 minutes drive from il Cottage ), Hanbury's botanical gardens and many other created by English people during their stay along the Riviera, or the marvelous villages in the inland, as Dolceacqua, Bussana Vecchia, Triora and Apricale. As an alternative, we suggest longer trips such as the Genoa's Aquarium (the biggest in Europe), Portofino or the 'Cinque Terre', or the nearby French Riviera.

Diano Marina

Diano Marina is a touristic village known since XIX century as a seaside resort by English people who settled there for the wonderful beach and the gorgeous landscape. Then it was visited by tourist from all over the world.

The climate of Western Riviera is famous for being delightful in summer and mild in winter, for that reason Diano Marina is an ideal destination for holidays throughout the year.

All along the coast, there are sandy beaches,most of them are equipped with facilities (fee required). There are also rocks and promontories with beautiful seabeds for those who wants to dive.

The village is very nice, with a beautiful old town and pedestrian area.

The town center is about 3 km from Il Cottage di Borgo Muratori.

To reach the cottage you need to climb about 150 meters. We suggest to go by car to the free and big car park near the cemetery, very close to the center, and then go on foot.

Borgo Muratori is an hamlet amid old olive groves. the Muratorio family have been living there for centuries. Maura Muratorio, the last descendent, after having written books on the history of the English colony on the Riviera, decided to restore the house inherited from her uncles and to offer hospitality to guests coming from all over the world.

"Hidden paradise in Liguria"

The figs hang heavy on the bows of the tree that bring shade, and where one can sit savouring the first cup of morning coffee. The leaves of the fig tree make patterns of light as the hot sun pierces through onto the green wrought iron table and chairs. Making plans for the day with Maura Muratori, the vivacious and lively proprietress of Borgo Muratori is a pleasurable pastime at Melograno, one of her many attractive homes in which one can stay in the enchanting olive-clad Ligurian hillside. Melograno is a lovely one-bedroom house. The large, attractive double bedroom, full of antique furniture and pictures, looks out onto the hillsides and the Mediterranean sea, and just outside the window, the pomegranate tree and its ruby-red fruit, visited by enthusiastic birds. The bathroom is well appointed, and the small living room where one can eat is attractively furnished, as is the galley kitchen.
But it is the terrace overlooking the garden that is certainly one of the most enjoyable parts of staying in this hidden place, with the nighttime sound of the frogs and the crickets lulling one to sleep. There are also many wonderful places to walk and visit, and places to eat well, with the additional joy of returning every day to this delightful and welcoming home in the green hills.
