Great find in Riva Ligure
We had a great time at Villa Nemo in Riva Ligure. The property was exactly as advertised. I would even say the house was more spacious than I expected from the photos. Inside it felt like a brand new construction to me with higher end fixtures. Cleanliness was spotless on our arrival. Outside the pool was perfect and the yes view was to die for. The veranda had plenty of shade for us. The steep drive up to house was a daily chore as noted. Even by end we did not find it simple but we managed. For me was the price to pay for privacy and view. Walking to the beach was only a few minutes even though it looked longer from up high. The surrounding of the house were a little different with it being a kind of agricultural hill of green houses and commercial crops. One of the water cisterns has goldfish in it if you can find it. Yes my wife heard the 'frogs singing' though they did not bother me even after she mentioned them a few times. All in it was great find Riva Ligure and I would easily recommend it. Take the road up slow then enjoy the view all day.
An amazing villa with breathtaking views .....
We have just arrived home and I am missing already the view of The Mediterranean Sea .... The villa is just lovely and the pictures do not really show it at its best. You may see the reviews which mention the approach road which is steep but so worth it as it provides spectacular views and complete privacy, which for us is really important.
Carlo couldn't have been more helpful both before and during our stay and even offered advice on best routes as we were driving down through France.
The walk to the beach and town was reasonably quick - bit slower on the return, but we found the locals so friendly and they even offered seats at their table so we were able to sit outside and enjoy our drinks.
Having booked villas through Home Away for many years I can honestly say that this is the best yet with our friend stating that the acid test is would he come back and all of us replied 'yes we would' - not surprisingly though it appears to be booked up for many months to come.
To conclude, a wonderful villa and a great holiday with lovely friends - thank you again Carlo for all of your help and best wishes for the improvements that you have planned, we will be back to check them out!!
Great location with superb pool and views
We had a great time with our family (kids 10 and 7 years old) in the Villa Nemo. Especially the terrace and pool was in heavy use - not only due to the great weather but also to enjoy the superb views to the Mediterranean and Riva Ligure. As stated in the info, road to the Villa is pretty steep and narrow, but doable even with a VW Passat -sized station wagon.
Couple of small things to improve would be better mattresses in second bedroom and some more kitchen utilities (e.g. glasses).
Excellent choice e.g. for families searching for private pool and nice terrace.
Thanks a lot for the review!
Indeed 9 glasses is a bit short for continuous family use. I also think that the current six-set of dishes is maybe too limited when used continuously by 4 people or more. Will add more at once.
The mattresses should be of good quality, but they are probably too rigid, we will likely go for softer ones.
Perfect for a Family Holiday
The villa is great and it is just like in the pictures. It’s all very clean and the kitchen is well equipped, too. Air conditioning in all rooms made it very convenient inside during the hot days in July.
The terrace is big and has stunning sea views. What a great way to start the day with a breakfast al fresco! The large infinity pool with the view was the favorite spot for the children. The sun shining all day made the pool temperature nice and warm, yet refreshing.
The beach and several nice restaurants in the village are within the walking distance. The way up
to the villa is interesting but we had no problems whatsoever reaching the house by car or on foot.
Once up there again you enjoy a very relaxing environment in total privacy.
A tip for an activity: there’s a bike rental in Riva Ligure for Pista Ciclabile. For more information, see pistaciclabile.com.
The landlady is very friendly, helpful and always available if you have any questions.
A humble suggestion: to make it perfect, the equipment for barbecue could be somewhat improved.
All in all, Villa Nemo can be highly recommended for a laid back holiday with the family.
Sehr sehr geiles Haus!
Alles sehr unkompliziert, sehr gut ausgestattet, sauber, ordentlich, etc.
Genau wie es auf den Bildern aussieht. Ein Traum!
Einziges Manko.. die Zufahrt ist abartig steil und sehr eng! Mit einem großen Auto werden die Fähigkeiten des Fahrers abverlangt und zu Fuß geht es als kleines Workout durch.
Aber schlussendlich wird man mit einer mega schönen Aussicht belohnt!
Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen!
Perfect for familytime!
A wonderful house, garden, patio and pool. Well equiped house perfect for your own cooking. A small sleepy villige, mostly Italians speaking just Italian, quite few resturants made our choise to stay mostly att the house easy. A foodshop quite near the house gave us what we needed. The Beach was though ok. Perfect för small Children, but It was a very tough walk to the Centre of the village with the sea since the house is up on a hill. Perhaps it had been easier to drive up and down to the centre but the road was very narrow and didn't invite to that. On the other hand, the location gives the house a view almost to die for. If you are looking för a quiet and calm familyvacation this is the perfect place for you. Calm almost all day but in the night the frogs on the Hills close to the house "sings".
The communication with the owner of the house was easy and Nice, always quick reply.
