Italian Bliss! Perfecto!

  • 5 of 5

My 3 friends with our wives rented Villa Italian Riviera as my wife's wedding gift and we had a perfect and magical stay at the Villa Italian Riviera. It is the perfect place to go for a couple, a group of friends or the whole family. The property offers the perfect combination of privacy with great entertaining space.

The service we received simply could not have been better. nothing was missing or needed to make our stay any better! Each and every room in the villa offers amazing views so moody was left out from waking up to heavenly views!

We took days trips to Milan, Nice, Monaco, Menton and Genoa. It is located very close to the charming Italian village of Dolceaqua. whether staying at the villa or seeing Italy, France or Monaco, you will have plenty to do or just hang at the pool looking over the mountains. Plus the espresso machine :)

I would definitely suggest hiring the personal chef to make a unbelievable homes de Italian feast right at the villa, that was one of our favorite nights! Vincenzo and aria were so attentive and helpful and were great throughout our whole stay!

I would highly recommend the Villa Italian Riviera to anyone looking for holiday destination wiith friends, family or just a couple's get away!

dream holiday

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind in Villa Italian Riviera, 4 Erwachsene und 6 Kinder, gewesen. Wir muessen mit allem, was schon geschrieben wurde zustimmen. Was wir noch sehr hochachten war die absolut Private/Intimstelle. Hier ist es fuer einen Fotograf und das Modell ein Superort mit vielen Luxurioes Plaetzchen.

Weiter die mittelalterliche Staedtchen, Dolceacqua, Rocchettta Isolabona und Apricale sind uns in eine "andere Welt" gebracht.

Eigenlich will ich es hier nicht mehr verherrlichen, sonst wird es im Zukunft nicht mehr frei fuer uns... :-)

Well built new villa with fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults and 3 kids) stayed one week at the villa in the mid September. Villa is located up with mountains. There's a few kilometres long scenery road from the Dolceacqua city centre to the villa. Location is perfect to visit nearby cities in Italy, France and Monaco.

Villa is very well build with a top class kitchen and materials. It's elegant, practical and cozy – fit's well in the place it's located. View to the mountains and sea is magnificient. There's a lot of olive trees, rosemary, lemon etc. plants all over the properties. Pool has a proper size and it's deep enough to dive - our kids loved it.

All practical matters concerning the rental was managed with professional and kind matter – we felt very much welcome to stay and enjoyed a lot our holiday. Thank you again Ria and Vincenzo!

Luxurious centrally located villa

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful luxurious villa and what a nice relaxing atmosphere! The area is breath-taking. Breakfast outside with a beautiful view, then a dip in the lovely pool. Later in the afternoon a drink at sunset and in the evening dinner with a fire. There is a main house and a guesthouse. We stayed with four ladies in the main house, but there is room for more people. The house is (more than) fully equipped, from fantastic kitchen (with built-in coffee machine for excellent Italian coffee!) to several beautiful bathrooms. The villa is centrally located so we were able to cover a lot of ground, from of course Italy to Monaco and France. Dolceacqua itself is a lovely picturesque town with a lot of history. Highly recommended! We will be back!

Dream holiday destination in Italy!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful and unforgettable stay at the Villa Italian Riviera. It is the perfect place to go for a couple, a group of friends or the whole family.

The service we received was excellent. We loved the personal touch that the owners have given to the accommodation. Each and every room in the villa offers amazing views!

The villa itself is a perfect oasis of calm. It is located very close to the charming Italian village of Dolceaqua. Bigger cities such as Nice and San Remo are just a car-ride away!

I would highly recommend the Villa Italian Riviera to anyone looking for holiday destination with a heavenly peaceful and relaxing atmosphere!

Topvakantie!

  • 5 of 5

Na een goede reis begon onze vakantie met een gastvrije en vriendelijke ontvangst bij Casa del Poëta en Casa Mondriaan. Wat een prachtige locatie! Als vriendengroep hebben we een heerlijke week gehad waarin de villa en haar omgeving een belangrijke bijdrage hebben geleverd aan de ontspanning. We hebben goed gebruik gemaakt van alle faciliteiten als de ruime en complete keuken, het verkoelende zwembad en de pizzaoven. Kortom, een topvakantie op een locatie die zeker de moeite waard is om als groep nogmaals te bezoeken!

Dolceacqua is one of the most beautiful medieval villages in the province of Liguria. It is situated on a river, the "Nervia" that the oldest part (15th century) from the center (with the Castle Doria) separates the newer section (19th century) with the square. The two parts of the village are connected by an impressive stone bridge from the 15th century, which among other things is painted by Claude Monet in 1884 (called "A jewel of lightness"). The village square in the heart of the village overlooking the bridge. Here you can sit outside under the plane trees and between the Italians enjoy Italian wines and cuisine or an espresso with dolce.
