About the property

Townhouse in Apricale, Liguria

The house is harmonious and beautifully decorated. It is located in the medieval village but with all the modern comfort as air conditioning, sat TV, DVD, and WiFi. It is perfect for a family or two couples. The layout of the house is as follows: entrance on street level with bathroom and master bedroom. On the same level a room with open fireplace and the kitchen. First floor bathroom, toilet, second bedroom and the living room. From the living room french doors open to the outside dining area. From there up the stairs to the 'cherry on the cake'; the roof terrace (35 m2 ) with a shower and an amazing view! Our B&B Apricus Locanda is at about 100 mtrs. where you can use the pool. It is also possible to have breakfast on the beautiful terrace there (extra charge).

About Apricus Locanda

During a visit to my sister and her husband who lives in Apricale for almost 20 years I had a romantic encounter in the main square in Apricale. That was the beginning of our adventure in Apricale. Arturo lives here for almost 17 years and I for 8 years. Me (Jeanette) a Dutch manager and Arturo an Albanian builder have put together all our skills and opened a Bed & Breakfast, Apricus locanda (IT259). Arturo has built it and I am running it. The success of Apricus made that we wanted to create something more private and luxurious. And there are our luxury townhouses (IT 3376 and IT 4283). Since 2014 we also own restaurant named Apricus Osteria & Bar. You will find the bar at about 300 meters from the house. We are open for a morning coffee, lunch and diner. The view from the terrace is fantastic.

Hope we may welcome you in our beloved Apricale. Jeanette

Apricus Locanda purchased this house in 2008

Why Apricus Locanda chose Imperia

We live in Apricale on the same side as the townhouse. Also our B&B has the same view. The house is light (facing South) and has a stunning almost 360° view. We love the village. It is still very authentic but at the same time the glamorous places as Sanremo and Monaco are nearby. You can enjoy the best of both worlds. The sea to have a swim, the river to refresh yourself and the mountains to walk and to ski, it is all there!!

What makes this house unique

We created this house specially for our guests. We do have a lot of repeat clients in our B&B who want to stay longer and be able to cook Italian meals with fresh ingredients etc. Because the house is located near a closed parking place, it is easy accessible. As you know Apricale is for pedestrians only that makes it very nice and quiet, but on a hot summers day it is also comfortable when you can get close to your house with your car.

The roof terrace is of course the cherry on the cake. In daytime to sunbathe and at night to watch the stars.

Wonderful relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

Having had the perfect introduction to the magical place that is Apricale, by staying two nights at Apricus Locanda, we moved into the Townhouse for a week. Beautifully and tastefully decorated, it provides a wonderful haven of peace and tranquility. We'll equipped for all our needs, we loved having breakfast on the terrace, taking in the view and soaking up the atmosphere. The apartment has all you need, and the roof terrace with sun beds was a great bonus.

We both slept better than we have done for years, so peaceful is the village, and the thoughtfully planned interior of the Townhouse exudes calm.

Big thank you to Jeanette and Arturo for making us so welcome, and our stay so special !
