The house itself is very comfortable, but the outside is amazing: wonderful views down the extensive garden with its olive and fig trees, mountain views to either side and to the sea down below.
It is in a perfect position to enjoy the area, situated on the edge of the Monte Beigua national park and with the seaside town of Varazze just a 20 minute drive away. Our favourite day was a walk from the Pratorotundo car park to the summit of Monte Rama; it wasn't a difficult walk, but the scenery along the way was breathtakingly beautiful.
The owners, Marcel and Fabiola, were very welcoming and always helpful in answer to any questions we had. Our dog was also made very welcome and got on very well with their dog, Rocky, when he was there at the weekends.
We would wholeheartedly recommend staying here - it was flawless. It is our fourth year of renting holiday homes in Italy and while the others were lovely too, this one was far and away the best.
The villa is a few kilometres inland and is easily accessible from the autostrada. Calice is a small town with a good supermarket, a few other shops and a range of good restaurants. It's close to good walking and seems to be a popular centre for cycling and climbing on the local crags.
We really loved our time at the villa. It has easy access, safe parking and is a short walk from the centre of Calice. The hosts are close by (above the apartment) and always on hand and willing to share information about places to visit, tips on Italian cooking and produce from their herb garden. The apartment itself is well equipped and even has its own piano! It's a super base for exploring Western Liguria and is greatly recommended.
Thank you Maurizio and Enrica!
