A large, well stocked and comfortable apartment with beautiful sea views. We didn't have a car but it was a short walk to the local beach and an easy walk into Arenzano along the seafront cycle track. Recommend hiring bikes too for a seafront cycle to hidden coves. . Lots of great restaurants in the town and great beach bar too on local beach. As it was 38-40c some days fans would be useful in future maybe? That said it was a really great holiday and good for friendly Italian beaches.
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!
