The house itself is very comfortable, but the outside is amazing: wonderful views down the extensive garden with its olive and fig trees, mountain views to either side and to the sea down below.
It is in a perfect position to enjoy the area, situated on the edge of the Monte Beigua national park and with the seaside town of Varazze just a 20 minute drive away. Our favourite day was a walk from the Pratorotundo car park to the summit of Monte Rama; it wasn't a difficult walk, but the scenery along the way was breathtakingly beautiful.
The owners, Marcel and Fabiola, were very welcoming and always helpful in answer to any questions we had. Our dog was also made very welcome and got on very well with their dog, Rocky, when he was there at the weekends.
We would wholeheartedly recommend staying here - it was flawless. It is our fourth year of renting holiday homes in Italy and while the others were lovely too, this one was far and away the best.
The cottage is quaint and comes with a lovely garden. The bedroom windows overlook Magliolo and the sea. Alice is a wonderful host and made our stay, with a baby and a toddler, very comfortable. We enjoyed the produce from Alice’s garden and cooked some nice meals during our stay. There are plenty of good, and child friendly, restaurants nearby.
