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!
This is a beautiful multi-level property, with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs and a kitchen, breakfast area, dining room (with armchairs), living room/bedroom 3 and shower room downstairs There is plenty of room for a family (we are a family of 4 with 2 adults and 2 teenagers). It has the added fun of a lift from the breakfast area to the upstairs bedrooms (there are also outside stairs). The best thing about this property are the stunning sea views which there are from the garden and most of the windows, these are totally gorgeous both day and night! Outside there are several terraces to sit on including a roof terrace, garden terrace with a small pool (with room for 4 to sit in), a terrace with a vine covered table and a grassed terrace to sun bathe - all with the sea views! The garden itself is lovely with both sunny and shady areas.The house is very comfortable, pretty and well equipped.
Silvia was great at meeting us on our arrival and once she had showed us where to park she drove our luggage up to the house and showed us around. Silvia was very helpful and friendly! There is an lockable car park area below the house, then a climb of around 200 steps to the house itself. It is possible to drive up to the house and park but we didn't try as the road is tricky and we were happy to climb the steps. The views made the climb absolutely worthwhile!
We enjoyed visiting Varigotti (which is walkable from the house if you are happy with the stepped path). It has some nice restaurants and an attractive old town area with a family friendly good beach (both private and public areas). One evening when we were there there was a small craft market and live band playing, which gave a lovely atmosphere. Finale Ligure is a 10 min drive with plenty of good sea front restaurants, an old town area and Piazza. Noli is a 10 min drive in the opposite direction from the house. We particularly enjoyed the small pretty old town and beaches there.
Yes we would definitely visit this house and area again!
