San Remo in September -superb.
Gino and Pamela are excellent owners and hosts, and the apartment, location, views are spectacular- as posted and demonstrated in photgraphs.
Great location to visit Menton, Monaco or Imperia, and the coast roads and views are a joy.
Privilaged to enjoy a relaxed coffee in the village above the apartment with Gino and some of his friends early one morning- real Italy and not available in travel catalogues.
Also delighted with the opportunity to meet Walther and Christiana from Hamburg in the second apartment - just the right amount of privacy, companionship early and late, and sharing of the pleasures like Dulca Aqua......as well as the final night meal together as the six of us was excellent in the local pizzaria including music and locals enjoying the fare.
One word of personal advice unrelated to Gino and Pamela....if offered an upgrade in the car hire office to a larger car- avoid!!!!...It takes an hour to drive back to Nice airport and the tolls cost also.....but when you get a smaller car with a big handbrake suited better to the steep hills and tight turns of Liguria...you'll be a lot more relaxed.....An Opel Insignia Estate is great for Motorways and big cities but is absolutely not right for the hills of Liguria despite your many years of driving experience- trust me and my fault totally.....Steep in Liguria is steep!!
Congratulations Gino and Pamel for building an oasis in the hills over San Remo- may you have many years of pleasure there with the occasional visitor not as fortunate where climate, sunshine, location are concerned.
Myles and Helen
Owner's Response: We are fortunate that with only two apartments we can offer an intimate and friendly atmosphere. We enjoy having our guests here and are pleased that they appreciate all that we have to offer. Thankyou Myles and Helen you were a nice couple.
