Casa Nardi is the typical Ligurian country house whose construction typifies the use for which it was intended, a ground floor with funds, at the service of the surrounding cultivated land, and with the kitchen; a second floor for residential use. The house, pleasantly and wisely restored preserving its main building features, the stone arches left exposed in the rooms intended for living room and all the finishes made with slabs of "black stone", maintains the same distribution and preserves its history and his soul.
The entrance immediately gives proof of the typicality of this house, with the floors in chestnut wood supported by strong beams, and performs a distributive function. On the floor we find the kitchen, large and equipped with everything you need, including the wood stove, with boiler function, which will be pleasant to enjoy in the winter evenings.
The pantry - laundry.
The central room is characterized by a round-arched stone arch based on the outcropping rock left exposed, the rock is slate or Lavagna stone. It is easy to understand how this room has been excavated in a large part of the stone, thus also obtaining the seats of the seats. For this reason, in summer, it is naturally air-conditioned. The room is equipped with a table for four people and can also function as a dining room.
Last room on the ground floor is a large living room with dining area, which due to its exposure to south-southwest and the abundant windows is particularly bright.
