Make a holiday rental home or villa in Apricale, Italy your home away from home

High up in the mountains of Liguria, the tiny comune of Apricale offers one of the finest destinations for those seeking a rural Italian break. Apricale is the epitome of a medieval hilltop town, being located in the foothills of the Alpes Martimes around 350 metres above sea level, and despite being just 20 minutes away from the coast can sometimes feel like a million miles away due to its secluded location. Self-catering accommodation in Apricale includes traditional stone cottages – the perfect base for a relaxing break.

Things to do in Apricale, Italy

Apricale has a population of fewer than 600 people and English is not widely spoken around the village. This means that a holiday in Apricale is the perfect opportunity to brush up on your Italian language skills, experience a traditional way of life and immerse yourself in the local community during your stay. A little Italian can go a long way in this part of ‘Real Italy’.

The village centre has altered little over the centuries, and consists mainly of old stone buildings and narrow, winding streets known as carugi. The town square, Piazza del Borgo, is the central meeting place and where you will find the vast majority of restaurants, cafes and bars. Many of these offer outside seating, and are great for a romantic meal or glass of local wine on a balmy summer evening.

With Apricale being located in such a rural area, the use of a hire car is strongly advised to make the most of your stay in the village. Small supermarkets and shops can be reached on foot, but as soon as you wish to venture outside of the village you will discover that motorized transport becomes a necessity. A hire car can easily be pre-booked and collected from the airport of your choice upon arrival.

Places to visit on holiday in Apricale, Italy

Despite the rural nature of Apricale, the coastline of the Italian Riviera can be reached within twenty minutes by car. Bordighera (17km) is a particularly nice spot, and successfully combines the secluded feel of the area with the traditional tourist draws of sandy beaches and clear waters. Further along the coast are the more modern attractions of the Cote d’Azur, with the exclusive resort of Monte Carlo (24km) less than an hour from Apricale.

Weather in Apricale, Italy

The province of Imperia experiences warm summer weather and mild temperatures during winter months, so there is not really a ‘bad’ time for a holiday in Apricale. July and August are the hottest months, with a daily high temperature of 28C, whilst December and January are the coolest.

Flights to Apricale, Italy

The main options for getting to your Apricale holiday rental villa are flights to either Nice Cote d’Azur Airport (NCE) or Genoa Airport (GOA). The distances from these airports to Apricale are 43km and 111km respectively, with most UK flights either departing from London Gatwick or London Stansted.

All necessary equipment is present to enjoy your stay. The property has a long balcony that crossed the entire façade with a great view and in full sun most of the day, we ate most of our meals on it. Just a small note, we would recommend the owner to install Wifi connection even on a pay as you go form, even if it was nice to have our three teenagers with their eyes out of the phone screen. The countryside nearby is full of picturesque villages and valleys while the coast is a tourist's paradise.We truly enjoyed our stay and the kids loved it, they even made local friends over the two weeks we stayed here. Fully recommended. Height Family

The Old Mill is wonderful in location - lots of wild life to observe including some of the prettiest butterflies. The facilities are excellent and the accommodation very comfortable. The pizza oven makes great pizzas and the local eateries particularly in Pigna and Apricale are superb. A trip to the beach is a great day out although you feel relieved to get back and shut the gates immersing yourself back into your own little world. We loved our two weeks at the Old Mill and would recommend it to anyone looking for some time to get away from the rat race.

When booking a "sunshine" holiday we concentrate on the outdoors. However this property was also one that you would not be disappointed with if you were stuck indoors. A large open plan kitchen/diner/lounge and well furnished. A large bedroom that - despite temperatures in the 30's - was cool because of a nice cross-breeze from large windows. Property did not have internet (but we were aware of that beforehand) and although at the beginning this caused a little frustration it resulted in us making better use of our time. We did not have a car (because of my dislike of car hire companies hidden insurance excess charges). Angela (our host) very kindly picked us up (an dropped us off) from local town. Inbetween we walked and bussed and enjoyed the enforced exercise. There is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area. Riva Ligure with its safe/clean public beaches and excellent restaurants was an unexpected find. We visited San Remo on market day for the princely bus fare of 1.50Euro (Buses ran every 20mins). We flew in/out of Nice and caught train to Italy (less than 10 Euros). Our travel costs during our stay in Italy were a fraction of car hire charges without the worry/stress of having car scratched or trying to find the elusive car parking spot. Not forgetting Pompeiano, Castellaro and Arma Di Taggia all worth a visit.
