Dolceacqua is situated on the border between the Italian flower Riviera and the French Côte d’Azur. Famous towns such as Menton, Monte Carlo, Nice, and Cannes etc are easily accessible. The village itself can trace its ancestry back to medieval times, as its beautiful castle and Roman Bridge demonstrate. Still today, the main industry is agriculture and flower cultivation. The villagers still tend their vineyards which produce the famous 'Rossese' red wine and their olive groves which surround the village. The property, Ca Giusta , comprises of four small apartments,each of which has been equipped and furnished to a high standard. The top floor appartment " The Doria" has spectacular views of the medieval castle and Roman Bridge on the opposite side of the river. The other three apartments also have attractive views of the village. The photos shown are a collage of all four apartments. Photos of each appartment are available on request.

The area has a good selection of restaurants and pizzerias at which to enjoy traditional Italian food and perhaps a glass or two of the famous local 'Dolceacqua Rossese' red wine. Local bakers bake fresh bread daily and many shops sell local grown produce such as extra virgin olive oil, wine, fruit and vegetables. Other important amenities include two banks and a post office. The village holds a market every Thursday and during the summer months, offers many traditional events such as concerts, fireworks, operas and village festivals. Not to be missed is the 21 August fireworks display.
Dolceacqua is also ideal for those who just wish to relax and enjoy nature . Some gentle strolls in old olive groves start from just outside the front door of the apartments. For the more experienced there is an abundance of challenging hikes and for those who like to admire the countryside from the inside of the car the choice is endless.
