Romantic Casa Lorenzina B&B
Ranked #18 of 23 Ventimiglia B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 October 2012 via mobile

The owner is so proud of his place and the history dating back to the 1600. It is set out of town on a rustic road overlooking the sea. Our bed faced the sea and it was so quiet. We wanted to feel Italy not from a hotel or town and this was it. We stayed a week and thought the location was great!!! Breakfast was always educational as the owner wanted to share with you a local dish: eggplant parmigiana, the best mozzarella to the herbs he used. Our room was comfortable large and clean. We had to walk they a rustic path down to the BB but all in all it was part of the charm.

Have been here several times
Outside the less nice Ventimiglia - you will find this sanctuary
Thrilling views - just above the sea (100m) and only 20 min by foot (you have to pass/avoid) the railroad) to a small sandy beach.

Pier´s breakfast is just to experience

Be warned the host changes from genial host to petulant child for no obvious reason.
he sulked for the last two days and did not even say goodbye. He suggested a early breakfast
(0745) as we we were going sightseeing then complained on the morning as he had to get up early !
You need to be quite fit as there are many steps (inside and out) which are very uneven and are difficult when carrying your suitcases as Pier has a bad back and can,t help.
There are better and cheaper B&B,S in the area plus you do not have to put to put up with a sulking child showing of at breakfast time.

Room Tip: The suite has a small balcony off the toilet

This is the place to stay if you want to get away from the busy city life. The views are amazing, and not spoiled by city buildings. I have stayed at B&Bs in many countries and without a doubt, Pier is the most friendly host I have ever had the good fortune to meet. With all the other places to see, I want to go back again just to stay at Case Lorenzina. Thank you Pier. You have a place to stay in Chicago if you ever want to visit.

If you are travelling to the Northern coast of Italy, you must visit Pier. What a highlight! Pier was a gracious host, going out of his way to ensure we were comfortable, chatting with us about local sights, history and culture. We totally loved the food he served, the view was spectacular and the overall experience--perfect. It was our favorite B and B in Italy!

Reading some of the previous reviews on this place has me mystified. Yes, it's a bit quirky - as is the owner, Pier, but we found it delightful. Breakfast included home-baked fresh four cheese forcaccia bread, fresh fruit and yoghurt, a selection of cold meats etc etc. We were even sent on our travels with a small picnic. The bedroom/apartment was clean and airy with marvellous views and Pier was very chatty and knowledgeable about the area and his neighbouring farmers.
Given its location (up a steep hill), it isn't suitable for anyone with disabilities and probably not all that great for kids, but it's an easy 20 minute walk into town.
Sure, it's a very old property (apparently a former convent) perched on the hillside, so its decor isn't pristine, but it is homely and welcoming.

We enjoyed our stay with Pier. That is mild, it was our favorite place during our 3 week visit. We do love Italy and France. Casa Lorenzina was a slice of Italy away from all the tourism. Our meal was delicious and thoughtfully prepared for us. Our rooms had fresh flowers and lavendar sachets on our pillow. The decor and view is breathtaking. Pier was a gracious and kind host to us during our stay. We would love to be able to return and spend more time there.
