Diano Marina is a tourist village that became popular during the 1800’s as a seaside resort and it is visited by tourists from all over the Europe.

The Western Ligurian Riviera climate is famous for being delightful in the summer and mild in the winter.

This makes Diano Marina, an ideal destination for holidays throughout the year.

All along the coast there are sandy beaches, with nice beach establishments.

We suggest visiting the natural and historical beauties nearby us, like the medieval village of Cervo Ligure, Hambury’s botanical gardens or the marvelous inland villages as Dolceacqua, Bussana Vecchia, Triora and Apricale.

As an alternative, we suggest longer trips such as the Genoa’s Aquarium (the second biggest in Europe), Portofino or the “Cinque Terre“, or the nearby Montecarlo and French Côte d’Azur.

About Mauro Bricca

Why Mauro Bricca chose Imperia

This was my parent's property, where I grew up.

I have recently renewed the villa and I have added the swimming pool. And now I am proud to offer it to my guests.

What makes this villa unique

It's in the best location of Diano Marina, with a stunning sea-view.

You will find in my house a lot of technology!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mauro,

I sent a message earlier but it did not get through.

I wanted to thank you again for the lovely holiday we spent at your villa. It was spotless and comfortable and the kids as well as us adults enjoyed the beautiful pool and jacuzzi.

The hi-tech features of the villa make it a unique place.

We loved the beaches nearby and the wonderful warm evenings we spent in Diano Marina and Cervo.

Villa il Poggiolo is a truly magical place. We are looking forward to coming back in the future.

Kind regards,

Laura, David, Dan, parents, brothers and the rest

Beautiful House and perefect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation in the Italian Riviera! The house was absolutely beautiful. The location was perfect! We did not want to leave. The house was exactly as described we loved the fact that we could play music anywhere inside or outside of the house. We spent our evenings watching movies on big screen TV. The kids loved it. The kitchen was perfect, we were able to prepare large family meals. I would definitely recommend this house to all of my friends and family. As far as location goes we were able to walk to the beach. During the day we traveled to picture perfect cities up and down the coast and inland. I have never been to this part of Italy before and although I hadn't heard of this town before I felt so lucky that we found this amazing place to stay. We rented the large house with another family and we had other friends rent the upstairs condo. It was a perfect place for groups and families. Some day we will be back!

Die Villa, das Jacuzzi, der Pool, das technische Equipment, die Hängematte, der Meerblick, die Sonnenliegen, der Grillplatz..... EIN TRAUM! Man fährt durch das elektrische Gitter in den Hof und fühlt sich sofort wie zu Hause! Wir wurden von einem sehr zuvorkommenden Gastgeber begrüßt und mit vielen guten Tipps für leckeres Essen und Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Nähe versorgt. Die Wohnung, die wir zu zweit gemietet haben, hat traumhaften Meerblick! Unvergesslich! Zudem gibt es wirklich alles, was man in einer Wohnung braucht und noch ein bisschen mehr! Toller, großer Fernseher, einen zweiten TV im Zimmer, Internet, Musik, Filme, Bücher und sogar bunt-beleuchtete Wasserstrahlen in der Dusche... sehr geschmackvolle Einrichtung und Ausstattung, also auch Teller und Gläser, wirklich sehr schön! In dieser Villa kann man absolut perfekt entspannen! Auch sehr ideal für mehrere Familien und Freunde. Es gibt genügend Platz (2 Wohnungen für jeweils 4 Pers. und eine Suite für bis zu 12 Pers). Im Freien findet man genügend Stühle und Tische und ausreichend Sonnenliegen bzw. eine Hängematte und eine sehr schöne Liege -Insel. Der Jacuzzi und das Wasser im Pool waren immer sehr sauber! Überhaupt war alles in perfektem Zustand. Sogar das Tischtennis-Netz war nagelneu! Der Garten war sehr gepflegt und mit einem Bose-Soundsystem konnte man überall im Freien Musik hören.

Fazit: Man kommt in der Villa Il Poggiolo an und ist sofort im Urlaub - und man will unbedingt bald wiederkommen! ABSOLUT EMPFEHLENSWERT!

Gorgeous find!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was really comfortable with a wonderful home away from home. The host came personally to ensure everything was explained and handed over the keys.

Enter through the electric gates to a lovely home with a breathtaking view of the sea both from the house and the jacuzzi/pool area. Everything was really super clean and the home entertainment technology was a real bonus. The kids loved the big screen cinema experience!

We would certainly recommend it and we ourselves will return.

Grazie Mille Mauro...😀

Traumhafte Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist einfach klasse. Wir waren 7 Erwachsene und 1 Baby. Es hat an nichts gefehlt. Der Garten, Pool und Jacuzzi waren spitze.

Die Villa ist sehr gut ausgestattet und vollgepackt mit Technologie. Die Betreuung vor Ort durch den Vermieter ist sehr nett. Ein Platz zum Wohlfühlen!
