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.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Mauro has put together the most wonderful property, from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt in a relaxing, comfortable environment. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble, he even assisted us in organising a trip and overnight stay in Levanto which allowed us to visit Cinque Terre. We stayed in the VIP apartment overlooking the pool and had all of the amenities that we required. For the second week of our stay a friend also joined us and there was more than enough room for all of us to live without needing to feel "on top of one another".

The shared pool and sun loungers were equally used between all of the apartments without problems as were the outdoor cooking facilities.

We cannot recommend this property highly enough!

Beautiful villa with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Had such a lovely time in diano marina . Mauro was very welcoming and even greeted us with drink and nibbles....

Mauro showed us around our villa and the outside of his property where he has well kept gardens pool area and jacuzzi. The children enjoyed spending the day here playing in the pool and the table tennis. The apartment itself is very well equipped and is like a home from home with lots of gadgets. Everything was clean and well kept we also had lots of towels provided thank goodness with children in and out of pool and shower.

We will hopefully be returning to villa il poggolio in the future and bringing some more of our family .

Owner's Response: Thank you Helen! If you will return with more people, I recommend the ViP Suite that can host up to 10 and it's double the size of the ViP Panorama. Thank you for your positive comment, greetings, Mauro.

Fantastic appartment.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at Villa il Poggiolo and can't recommend it highly enough: from the moment we arrived to a big friendly welcome from Mauro, until we left. The apartment was decorated really nicely with lots of good technology which kept the teenage girls constantly entertained. The highlight though is the outside area, both the balcony with great views of Diano Marina and the pool area. We all loved the pool (particularly in the evening) and Jacuzzi; and the outside sound system was a real bonus, particularly with spotify. It was lovely to explore a new area of Italy (and we particularly enjoyed the local caves and Cervo) that we didn't know particularly well but hard to drag yourself away from the luxury of the villa. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Villa il Poggiolo is beautiful! The views are breathtaking. This is the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 (husband, myself, 11 year old daughter and 14 year old daughter). We recently stayed in the VIP apartment (the top apartment). Everything was simple & clean. The apartment had everything we needed (i.e., washing machine, refrigerator, coffee maker). My daughters slept comfortably on the separate, twin size, sofa sleepers. The outside porch overlooks the garden, pool, and ocean. The porch has an incredible view and is wonderful place to have your morning coffee. The pool, jacuzzi, and garden grounds are and clean and immaculate. The property also has a ping pong table, which our kids enjoyed! This property is a private and wonderful getaway. The house is close to grocery stores, gas stations, the beach, and freeway access.

Mauro, the owner and host, welcomed us to the Villa as we arrived and gave us a tour of the apartment and grounds. He was always easily reachable and friendly. We appreciated his promptness and ability to help us with other travel plans and other cities. (i.e, places to stay and directions).

Please look no further, you will be very happy to stay at this wonderful property!
