    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    The cottage is in the popular hilltop village of Apricale, considered one of the most beautiful in Italy and whose name comes from 'apricus', meaning 'open to the sun.' Apricale is situated in the foothills of the proposed UNESCO World Heritage site of the Ligurian Maritime Alps, 10 miles from the sea and is an ideal base for a spring or autumn walking holiday, with many miles of trails and with a mild climate. It is a nature lover's paradise, full of wildflowers in spring, with many species of butterfliies and birdlife. Also a great base for a summer beach holiday with easy access to the Italian and French Rivieras: Nice (40miles), Monaco and San Remo (25 miles) but cheaper than staying in those locations. see also http://holiday-homes-in-italy.blogspot.it/2012/11/acc... more

What an amazing place to stay! The villa has been beautifully renovated and offers great views over the surrounding countryside.

From Apricale, you can...

We really enjoyed staying at this place in the atmospheric hilltop village of Apricale. The owner was very helpful and welcoming and has lots of information about the area, being particularly well-informed about walking and hiking around the beautiful and wild Maritime Alps. The area is full of a dramatic scenery and architecture and there are plenty of excellent restaurants... more

Management response:

It was a real pleasure to host such a well-travelled, cultured couple, who appreciated the beauty of Apricale and its surroundings and who helped with suggestions on how to improve a stay at the cottage, based on their years of experience of letting their own historical property in France. Taking their advice, I have now added a cafeteria and teapot... more
