We were lucky enough to spend a month in the American cottage. We loved it. Arthur was very helpful and answered all my questions prior to arrival. Nothing seemed too much bother for him and we genuinely felt he cared about us enjoying our stay.
We were met after a nightmare drive (our Sat Nav tried to take us down a white, mountain road to get there) by Margheritta. She was so kind and had a wonderful sense of humour. We shared a much needed and revitalizing glass of wine together!
The cottage is a cool, peaceful haven. We were there from mid June and the evenings felt cool as there is not much evening sun reaching the property. From July this was not a problem
Spending the day out and coming back to the peace of the cottage was lovely. We found some beautiful walks among olive groves where you can see for miles. We painted and read and wrote. We loved Cervo and went twice to an amazing restaurant up in the mountains in Lucinasco called Trattoria dalla Etta. They do an delicious tasting menu where the courses never seem to stop coming! Very close and worth a peaceful wander is Laghetto Lucinasco. Be warned though, high mountain roads to get there!
We enjoyed Diano Marina, with friendly beaches and lovely shops...especially fresh pasta and fresh fish. The fruit and veg is fantastic. We took "Jamie's Italian" cookery book with us and had a lot of wonderful Italian feasts cooked in Arthurs kitchen. We highly recommend staying here and look forward to returning. Huge thanks to Arthur, Margheritta and Rosa for the most wonderful holiday ever.
Excellent location for someone who is looking for peaceful and quiet place to stay,very relaxing atmosphere.It looks exactly how it is been described.Stunning views and very friendly neighbourhood.Close to the beach and at the same time in the middle of olive groves.The property itself it is very cosy,definitely worth visiting.Arthur was very helpful and gave us a lot of information with places to go and things to do.Also Jenny,the host was very friendly and welcoming,she gave us a lot of hints too,made us feel at home.
