The farmhouse was beautifully converted to make a comfortable villa for 8 people. We especially liked the sitting room in the attic. But the grounds were superb with a pool, shady outdoor seating areas and best of all a wonderful, waterfall and natural swimming pool in the river at the bottom of the garden. The weather was brilliant and we hardly left the villa all week except to go to the lovely local town (Sassello for bread, fruit and veg in the little shops and pizza in the evening.)
The seaside at Savona was only 30 mins drive away but it was very hot on the day we went. However we did take the opportunity to do a big shop as this was the nearest large supermarket.
We would definitely recommend this holiday - I had no idea that this part of the Italian coast was so beautiful, the sea and the hills were breath-taking. When I saw the waterfall in the garden in the photos for the villa I was very excited but it totally exceeded our expectations!
Luisa and her son Paolo were very welcoming, and had prepared a lovely meal for our arrival. They were friendly and easy to deal with.
The apartment is spacious, with a large, secluded patio where we ate all our meals. It is situated on a hill between Noli and Spotorno, about 20 minutes walk to Noli, which is a beautiful medieval town. Pappus, the gelateria in Noli, is excellent quality and value. The view from the apartment at night across the bay towards Spotorno and Genova is spectacular.
We had a very relaxed week, mainly on the patio and at the beach, after a very active week in the French Alps. A perfect place to unwind, chill out and read books.
This part of Liguria has a beautiful, rocky coastline. I would like to come back and explore further.
