Marjolein purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Marjolein chose Piani-ciapin
Liguria has the mildest climate and gets more sunshine hours than any other part of Italy. We love this part of Italy because its really authentic and in the local vicinity you will find beaches, marinas, picturesque villages, hills, hamlets which date back centuries (to Medieval times), olive groves, an extensive foot- and cycle path running along the seafront, various footpaths through the hills, cosmopolitan cities etc.

Beautiful house with breathtaking ocean view.
This beautiful house is really characteristic, well maintained with a lot of old style details. It has a large fully equipped country style kitchen and a large dining table. The TV room has patio doors connected with a super patio with a breathtaking ocean view. Sun comes up on the left, goes under on the right. First floor has 3 spacious bedrooms and one bathroom, also with authentic details. There is an extra, small apartment, which we didn’t need, but makes the house perfect for 8 people.
The garden has several levels. Upper part has a large elevated swimming pool with some loungers. Below there is an herb garden with herbs and vegetables you can use. A little bit lower you enter the first patio (connected with the TV room) with a large dining table which can be covered from the sun with an enormous parasol. Another few steps down you enter the second patio (same stunning view) with several lounge chairs. Ideal for watching the sunset with a nice glass of wine….
It’s a 15-minute walk to the beach and the village center. After crossing the street, you can walk on a nature trail with ocean view. The beach, as well as the village, are small but cozy. There is a bicycle boulevard on which you can get to San Remo by bike. A great day trip and a great town to visit and do some shopping. There is a lot to do in the vicinity but when you stay in this house there is no need to leave. Just relax and enjoy. We loved to stay there and will definitely go back some day.
Beautiful Villa with beautiful view
For the second time we have been in this beautiful villa. You have everything you need for relaxing holidays. We have to little kids and they have been a lot in the garden. The little town San Lorenzo is in a walking distance and also the beaches there. With the car you drive in 10 Minutes to the sandy beaches in Riva Ligure or Arma di Taggia. We had beautiful holidays again!!
great house with panoramic view
This is a fine house with a great view over the sea. The terrace is very nice, with several sunny and shadow places all day. The house is very comfortable with a big and well equiped kitchen. Thera are several rooms, who are all oriented towards the sea.
Wonderful setting and lovely house
There were 8 of us staying at Cipressa (3 generations) and we all had a great holiday. The house is large and comfortable, well equipped and very clean. The kitchen has everything you need to cook for a family. We particularly appreciated the lovely terraces, well equipped with tables for eating outside. The large tree provides welcome shade, and there is lots of space around the house with easy chairs for relaxing and enjoying the wonderful view. The swimming pool is better than it appears in the photos! It is such a lovely house and garden that it is tempting to do very little except relax in the garden with a book and a glass of wine! However, it is important to be aware that the house is built into the slope of a hill (which means there is a stunning view of the coast) but it also means that the ground is on different levels with steps and slopes unsuitable for very small children and anyone with mobility issues. To drive the car up to the parking area involves a very steep slope with a hazardous drop on one side, and this was the only difficulty we had with the house - and the only reason we awarded 4 stars instead of 5. The Aurelia (coast road) is very busy and we did not consider it safe to walk along (narrow with no footpath) although we note that no other guests mentioned that difficulty. Apart from that we would thoroughly recommend the house. San Lorenzo has amenities for a family holiday - a sandy beach (lovely for swimming) cafes/ ice creams, etc. We recommend the restaurant Antica Piazzetta. We also drove to San Remo and Imperia, - both easily accessible and worth visiting. In fact we all had such a good time we very much hope to return for another holiday.
Wat een geweldig huis op een fantastische plek, heerlijke terrassen met adembenemend uitzicht. Een goed uitgerust huis qua apparatuur en servieswerk. Fijne bedden. Lekkere ruime vertrekken. Kortom gewoon doen.
Nice villa with amazing sea view.
Lovely house, well equipped and beds are very comfortable.
A beautiful terrace is in the shadow by a large pine tree.
San Lorenzo - San Remo bike path along the coast is a fabulous way to spend a day. The house had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay and for making our own meals and relaxing on the terrace!
Special interest holidays:
Visit the artists’ village of Bussana Vecchia: in 1887, this village was devastated by an earthquake. Around 1960, scores of artists and hippies from across Europe flocked to this ghost village to live and work, despite the fact that the village had no running water or mains electricity. Soon, a very special artists’ village had emerged from the ruins of the old village. The locals now make their living from tourism.
San Lorenzo al Mare
The nearest sand beach is in San Lorenzo al Mare, which lies east of our house. It’s a lovely little village, twenty minutes’ walk away. Some 100 metres down the Aurelia (the coastal road) you will find the entrance to a wonderful footpath which runs right alongside the sea. En route, you will pass various rock and pebble beaches (popular with the Italians) which are a magnet for so many swimming and snorkelling enthusiasts.
Our holiday villa is an hour’s drive from Nice airport (France). Cipressa is a small village on the Italian Riviera. It is located between the towns of San Remo and Imperia. Piani Cipressa is officially part of the village of Cipressa, but lies just outside it, right by the sea (near San Lorenzo). Access to the house is by a narrow road which branches off from the Aurelia (the coastal road).
Only a 20-minute drive from our house is the fashionable resort of San Remo, known for its casino and luxurious shopping streets. At the beginning of the 20th century, many famous people flocked here because of the mild climate (the Empress Sisi, the Russian royal family, Alfred Nobel etc.). The old part of San Remo is also worth a visit. From the harbour you can take a dolphin and whale-watching boating excursion!
Foot- and cycle seafront
The foot- and cycle seafront, which follows the route of the old railway, runs right alongside the seashore. By the end of 2010, which is the seafront’s projected completion date, it will measure 74 kilometres in total. The seafront will then stretch from the south of France, along the Ligurian coast and on to Genoa, passing 8 historical villages and San Remo on the way. At present, 24 kilometres of this car-free path has been made ready for use and this section of the seafront is close to our holiday house. The path is on the flat and quite wide, so very suitable for families.
You can already cycle from San Lorenzo to San Remo in 45 minutes, or continue on to Ospedaletti. The view is brilliant and en route you pass lovely little villages and idyllic beaches. Fringed by the Alps on the one side and by the Mediterranean on the other, this will be one of the most beautiful cycle paths in Europe and the first to run along the Italian coast. This construction project will open up access to 5 kilometres of the coastline.
