Casa Dolce Vita
Apartment | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The easiest route to the Italian Dolce Vita a stressfree holiday in our lovely south facing exceptionally spacious apartment no stairs, children and well behaved pets welcome. The apartment has just been completely redecorated.
Bring your laptop and there is free wi-fi in the Bar Sul Ponte, 5 mins walk and with a key you can buy here you can have wifi at home.
The apartment is big enough for 4 couples to sleep comfortably in separate rooms.
The bedrooms are comprised of one double bedroom, one twin bedroom, one bedroom with bunk beds and a double bed settee in the TV room which becomes completely private (this is the 4th bedroom) and a single daybed settee in the living room, all have good mattresses. A large utility room and a large full bathroom and a separate WC. We have a cot and a high chair. We supply linen and towels plus beach towels. There is a washing machine.
The long balcony is ideal for having a glass of wine and watching the village prepare for the evening after a long hot day on the beach or at the rock pools in the village. The apartment is all on one floor on the second floor of a building with just three apartments, there is a lovely peaceful view of the village from the balcony, including the children's park.
We are a stroll from the trendy village cafe, serving cappucini, latte's, freshly squeezed orange juice, home made croissants and pastries and the most amazing aperitifs after a long day in the sun before dinner. The apartment is just a few minutes walk from the village shops. There is a great pizzeria and restaurant 5 mins walk away with live music on Saturday nights. Village dances throughout August on the large sports field are great fun for all.
Have a wonderful ice-cream sundae in the local ice cream parlour..
If you wish to come for a stress free holiday without a car we have a taxi service for €80 each way you can be collected from and returned to Nice airport and then use the bus service when you are here if you wish to sight see further than the village. You can rent a car at the airport and then use that to visit the area, the roads are tight but not too busy and I believe they drive carefully in our area - don't quote me.
Ideal for family get togethers, friends holidaying together, bring the grandparents and lots of other opportunities.

The balcony is long and reaches over the lounge and TV room, it is suitable to have breakfast on and great to people watch as it is over the only road going into the village square. The balcony is not suitable for parties!
There is a brand new tennis court, literally it has just been finished, a football field, two children's play areas - one visible from the apartment balcony - a 4star spa hotel where visitors can use the outdoor swimming pool. There is also a campsite 10 mins down the road in Isolabona, it has a big pool and you can go for the day, you can take food or buy what you need there, it's laid back and great fun for children.
Lots and lots of outdoor space for children to freely run around. There is a pizzeria in the village , a small trattoria for lovely traditional lunches made by Carla, a 3 star restaurant for a full meal, an ice-cream parlour and a music bar open from 5 to 2am for the teenagers amongst you.
You will have one set of linen per bed for a two week stay and 4 bath towels and 4 hand towels per person (if you feel you need more just ask and also there is the washing machine for any disasters), 4 tea-towels and also I provide bulky beach towels per person as these take up so much space in a suitcase.

"Has What You Need"
Great location for relaxing or exploring the surrounding area. The apartment itself has everything you need and was clean and comfortable. Fans in the bedrooms would be the one piece of equipment that is lacking but with thick walls and correct use of the shutters when out it was not too hot at night. There is plenty of space to spread out and the balcony is lovely. I would be nervous with very young children (under 8) on the balcony but that may be me.

Pigna was just the holiday we were looking for. Ancient beautiful village, away from the hectic resorts of the mediterranean, yet still close enough to spend a few days on the beach when we wanted to. Our family preferred the lovely baths the mountain springs offered though. The apartment was large, comfortable and very well equipped and perfect for a relaxed holiday. The owners provided us with great tips of the best restaurants, walks, baths etc as well which helped make our holiday as fantastic as it was.
