The elegance of this home is all in its comfortable simplicity. Not to forget the peaceful quiet at the house whenever you like: it’s situated at 350 mt sea level in the bonny, quiet hills of Alassio - the famous touristic beach resort - far from us only 10 min drive. 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, lounge, large kitchen on 3 floors in the exclusive use of guests. A small apartment nearby is reserved for us, we will use it occasionally to give a discreet as useful support to our guests, not forgetting the maintenance necessary for the proper functioning of the property, with its exclusive swimming pool and large gardens. The house, originally founded as a farmhouse, is now an elegant small mansion after a recent, complete and careful renovation: care in choosing the colors and accessories, furniture, recovering all original materials - terracotta floors, wooden beams at sight , stone, ancient staircase in slate (dating from the 9th century AD!), fireplace. Everything remind us the past, as our medieval tower, that the City of Alassio wanted as a symbol of the town.

About elisa sertorio
First of all an explanation! As you saw, the owner has a name, Luca Raggi, and it's true. But the lines below describe a piece of my life and my feelings. I am Elisa and I am your contact, Luca is my children's dad and our tax representative too, this is the reason why you see him as account) and with him and my second husband Riccardo, pictured with me , we have completed this great project. The house, dating back to the XVI century, is completely restored with care and love for the past. A job lasted five years, meeting all kinds of difficulties... the opportunity to publish the pictures you just saw, is a source of pride and great satisfaction for all our family, but especially for me, I confess. The project was so exciting to inducing me - executive in a big company - to radically change my working life. A good result I think, but what an effort! I worked hard to get it, but now the dream of my life is reality. I love so much this place, (I got married with Luca here, in the family castle that you see on left ), than I have shifted a bit of my passion into the home walls . Hope you feel what I mean if you stay here some days!

Beautiful house in fantastic setting
A lovely property in a rural location high above Alassio. Beautiful private pool, which was surrounded by fragrant jasmine when we were there. Owners on site but very discrete and really helpful when approached. We really enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful setting with excellent amenities. Exceptionally comfortable accommodations.
Elisa and Riccardo are EXCELLENT hosts. They really made our stay in their lovely home special. We received a tour of the property including facinating historical background. Ricardo even helped us get the outdoor fire going for our grill! They were attentive to our needs but not at all intrusive. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property for your home away from home.
Charming house in a beautiful setting
We had a great week at La Maclura. Lovely Elisa was there to welcome us ( even though it was after midnight) and was on hand to offer information if we needed her . The house is charming, full of character and clean and well equipped. The pool and outdoor areas are pretty and well kept. We did some walking in the area, a snorkelling trip to an island and a trip to Menton and Monaco; and Alassio is a very busy little town with great shopping and beach fun.
Highly recommended. Thankyou Elisa.
Perfect location, very well kept, great owners
We were three families (6 adults and 4 children between 3 and 9 years) and spent a week in July in Elisa and Ricardo´s wonderful house. We really enjoyed our holidays and had a great time. The house is renovated with love, all rooms are practically furnished. At the same time you can see that the owners have a lot of taste and take care of their house. It was possible to go hiking in the area around. The swimmingpool was bigger than expected, Ricardo was cleaning it every day. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace with a view and having our dinner there. There is a big barbecue we liked to use. You can spend a lot of time in the house and garden, but it is also very easy to go down to the beach or to the small village Moglio where you can find a baker and a very delicious trattoria. I could go on with saying a lot of good things about the location. It has been a perfect holiday for us families and I can highly recommend the place. Maybe we will come back ;)
Wonderful week at Alassio
We had the pleasure of staying at this Villa for a week. It is in a wonderfully tranquil location and the villa looks like something from a magazine. Everything worked the way it should have, plus the pool kept the kids busy for the whole week. It was a pleasure from start to finish and we will certainly come back next year. If you are thinking of taking this villa for a week or 2, do it. You will not regret it!
authentic Italian holiday
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely property up in the hill from Alassio. Perfect for our children. The house is really nice and the extremely hospitable hosts Elisa and Ricardo were very helpful, yet discrete. The children loved the pool and we enjoyed our meals on the terrasse overlooking the sea. The city of Alassio gives lots of opportunities, and there are several really nice authentic Italian restaurants close by the property. For us this was the perfect authentic Italian holiday. We will definitely be back!
5,5km from nearest beach. Over 100 bathing establishments, to choose along the coast. It is enough to consider its geographical position, the expansion of its beach, the possibility to swim from March to November, the shallow depth, the gentleness of its climate through the whole year. Alassio must be regarded as one of the best beaches in the world. The strand with its very fine grey-white dustless sand stretches over 4km to join the seaside of wonderful Laigueglia.
Airports by car. Nice (France) 113km, Genova 98km, Milano 235km. Car essential.
Alassio 5,5 km drive, Albenga 12,8 km, San Remo 38 km, Montecarlo 97 km. Car essential.
The tourist history of Alassio is closely connected to its climate. Very thorough studies have compared the climate of the picturesque bay of Alassio to that of another pearl of Italian tourism, Amalfi. In fact both the coast and hilly belt are exposed to the south, a crown of mountains protects it from the northerly winds, that is why Alassio enjoys the typical Mediterranean maritime climate which is pleasant and mild, with annual range of about 15 degrees, average winter temperature of about 10 degrees and summers refreshed by marine breezes with temperatures around 25 degrees. It is above all due to its favourable climate that Alassio, towards the end of the 18th century, became among the first Italian town to receive tourism from Europe. As time went by, the first wealthy English families who started this trend were replaced by a crowd of tourists coming from all over the world, as the latest statistics on the tourist flux show. The biggest shopping center of Liguria is the 'Budello' of Alassio, the ancient alley stretching across the whole town, parallel to the sea front. Along both sides are the best shops of the western Riviera with their latest ideas and fashions: from the most modern 'griffe', to the most precious antiques and traditional tastes. You'll find here. 24 restaurants, 10 supermarkets, 10 banks and more and more.
