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.
We had a wonderful holiday based in Casa Montaldo. Rainer and Lisa were very welcoming and on site to offer excellent advice on places to visit, and to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The property is comfortable and beautifully restored to a very high standard. There are wonderful, extensive views of the local village and distant hills from the terrace and swimming pool, although, as is to be expected in October, the water temperature was quite bracing!
The kitchen is equipped with everything you need, including an induction hob, but there is no oven or microwave.
The property is part of the owners house and their access is is via the patio area which is the also outside space for this holiday apartment, so it is not totally private. However, they are very considerate and this was not a problem to us.
Finally, we would thoroughly recommend Casa Montaldo to anyone wanting a base from which to explore this wonderful region of Italy.
