“Amazing house” Wonderful traditional house with everything you could possibly need. Excellent location for shopping, sightseeing, restaurants with deli and bakery literally outside the front door! Wonderful town and superb house.
“Comfort, character and charm” The house is in a central location in Pigna, a medieaval village of great charm. The location affords easy access to the stunning mountain scenery of the Ligurian Alps, and is half an hour from the beaches of the Italian Riviera. Monaco/Monte Carlo is less than an hour away by car/train. In the other direction, San Remo is a short journey. We flew Liverpool to Nice and the journey from the airport was about an hour, even allowing for our unfamiliarity with the route. Ventimiglia is the nearest town. It has some interesting shops and a good beach, but can be a bit of a traffic bottleneck. We recommend trying the local cuisine and wines, especially good was the Hotel Restaurant Therme (not to be confused with the Grande Therme Spa). The house itself is most unusual, being on four floors with no immediate vehicle access due to the narrow streets. This suited us well - both being keen to shed a few pounds! The house has been tastefully modernised and furnished, and is well equipped. The top floor lounge has two small balconies with wonderful views. We enjoyed a memorable week, and would heartily recommend the property, with the proviso that you need to be fit enough to relish climbing stairs.
“Excellent bolthole in family orientated beautiful town” We spent 5 very happy days here. The property is clean with a modern kitchen so cooking is easy if you don't want to eat out at the lovely restaurants. Kids are well loved here so there is never any bother with having them out with you. Our fave place was a lake nearby where, for a small fee, the kids could go out with canoes (clad in excellent life jackets) and pedaloes, even try waterskiing for the whole day. There are plenty of beaches and picturesque towns short car rides (30mins-60 mins) away. A car is a must but, it is an incredibly relaxing place and although the property isn't huge the kids( and ours were 5-8) can ramble around the town after a day out safely. You can even grill fish on the bbq on the little roof terrace and watch the sun go down overlooking the town. I aim to return again.
