Description

Charming 500 year old townhouse on 4 levels. Perfect for a winter or summer retreat!The property is south facing and gets the sun all year round, yet in the summer the thick walls keep it lovely and cool after a day in the sun. On the ground floor is the kitchen/dining-room with beautiful vaulted ceiling. A bedroom with 3 beds and a bathroom with shower is on the second floor. On the third floor is the master bedroom with stunning views. On the top floor is the bright, sunny living room where the views get even better!

One can gaze out at night and see the village of Castelvittorio seemingly suspended in the air. The living room has a large comfortable sofa which turns into a double bed. It has a cathedral ceiling and french doors leading onto two small balconies.

The house is very quaint but has all the mod cons for your comfort. The property has rare vehicle access close to the front door for unloading and there is parking 100m away. We have central heating making the

There is a museum dedicated to the old ways of the village.

Location description from owner

The Liguria region

Liguria is the smallest region in Italy stretching from the South of France to the border of Tuscany. It is an extremely diverse region incorporating the glitz and glamour of the Riviera and the authenticity of past times in the mountain villages.

It is famous for it's production of olive oil and pesto and has many culinary delicacies which are particular to the region.

Pigna

Pigna has a bank, two pizzeria, a trattoria which sells traditional home-cooked Italian food, a highly-regarded Ligurian restaurant (the latter two are both mentioned in the Guardian article by Joshua Stein) and a four star spa hotel with a restaurant, swimming pool and beauty treatments. There are many more restaurants in the vicinity. It has 3 grocery shops and a chemist. There are beautiful natural swimming holes dotted around the village if you want a change from the beach. A nearby campsite has a swimming pool which can be used for a small fee - they even allow you to take your own food and drink.

In the Summer the village is host to numerous dances and cultural events. The village is very child-friendly with a playground, football pitch and a tennis court. For the more active guests there are lots of designated walks around Pigna. The house is less than a minutes walk to the Piazza where everyone sits and enjoys a drink and watches the world go by! On Saturdays the market is held in the piazza and you can buy delicious cooked chickens perfect for a light lunch! Italians from cities such as Milan and Venice come to Pigna to escape from the hustle and bustle and relax and enjoy the simple life.

Pigna has a wealth of art, monuments and history. The church of San Michelle, which dominates the village, is home to the famous 'Polyptych' painted by Giovanni Canevesio in 1500 whilst in the chapel of St Bernado you can admire the frescoes depicting 'The Last Judgement', also by Canavesio. The house is a good base from which to visit the Grand Prix in Monaco. The house is available for long winter lets at a heavily discounted price. Please enquire

“wonderful little find !”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2013

A wonderful 4 storey home from home. There was everything we needed from books, dvds, games , hairdryer etc ... We had a fabulous 4 days here and felt like locals ! The owners went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed down to making sure the heating was on when we arrived and a welcome pack . There is a fully stocked information folder which was extremely helpful and we followed directions to streams and rock pools which my son loved exploring . This is a lovely house to come and stay in whilst you explore this delightful area of Italy . Loved the local village cafes and restaurants . The little cakes were to die for ..still dream of them now !!! Would definitely come back . Mimi

“Wonderful base for exploring Italian/French Riviera & Maritime Alps”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2013

Having previously stayed in several villages along the Ligurian coast we were looking for a village with a few more facilities on the door step and a less perilous drive to reach it. Pigna was the perfect answer. Its baker, grocers and small selection bars/restaurants meant we didn’t have to drive somewhere every night. The perfect base for exploring the sophistication of Nice, Monte Carlo and San Remo but also all the charming historic villages of the coast and hills. The house is typical of the area with quite a climb to the top floor but well worth it for the amazing views over the ancient pan tiled roofs and church tower towards the mountains. It is charming and comfortable with everything you could need – so pleasant that we stayed in several nights and cooked some of the fantastic local ingredients. Best bits – the mountains, the wonderful bread and pastries from the baker and the late limoncello digestifs with the staff at the bar. We plan return next year.

“Comfort, character and charm”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2013

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.

“Brilliant!”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2011

The village of Pigna is truly a discovery! Very close to Nice Airport and a most welcoming and friendly population. In the summer you can eat and drink out from 7 in the morning until 4 at night! At very moderate prices also. The house is beautiful. Spacious, a wonderful view of the old houses, the hillside and the distant village of Castel Vittorio. It is also very well maintained. I would recommend this location to anyone.

“What a fantastict holiday!”

Reviewed 5 Nov 2011

Pigna is a quaint, beautiful town full of charm and character. I couldn't believe how friendly everyone was. This town house possesses all of the same charm and character that Pigna does. It also has all facilities that you need to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay. The lady who greeted us was very helpful and friendly as well as knowledgeable of the local area. There is lots to do round about Pigna too. The natural swimming pools were idyllic as was the concert that we went to at one of the beautiful, ancient churches. We also popped over to Monte Carlo and Nice! All in all a fantastic holiday!
