Our family of four had a lovely week’s stay in Pigna. Our initial walk from where we left the car to unload round to the villa was breathtaking. Parts of the medieval village reminded me of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley, with tiny alleys leading off and wooden doors with lamps hanging over. The villa had everything we needed and the outside space was perfect for relaxing or eating in the sun. The village of Pigna is quiet and friendly and where you feel part of the community. The local coffee shop sells amazing coffee, patisserie and ice cream, from where you can watch many cyclists come and go. The ‘local’ waterfalls we walked to provided many hours of exploration and relaxation alike. We visited the local bar and played pool and spent lovely evenings in other restaurants nearby. The beach at Bordighera is a stony beach where you can hire sun loungers, but we were comfortable enough to lay on towels and mingle in with the many locals who came down late afternoon. The sea varied from calm and tranquil to vast, smashing waves - both as equally enjoyed although the life guards were diligent in keeping people safe. Visits to other villages to see Monet’s bridge, waterfalls and amazing views kept us all amused. Thanks to the comprehensive information we received prior to going and in the villa this helped us to make the most out of our week, although also leaves us feeling that we need to go back for more!
We had a great week at the Stone House 'La Casetta'. Marco met us on arrival and showed us around. He was in touch in the week in case of any problems, but we didn't have any. The house is very cute but well equipped and great for a family of four. The upper level has the kitchen/diner/small lounge and terrace and then downstairs are the bedrooms and bathroom. We loved the peace and quiet both on the terrace and at the pool (despite it being a shared pool with 2 other houses we more often than not had it to ourselves). A definite highlight was walking to and swimming in the 'Laghetti'. We also enjoyed spending time at the coast and looking around Dolcedo.
