About alessandra celoria

I am a translator. I have two nice kids (11 and 6 years old). I am married since 10 years to a wonderful guy. We choose to live in a little town close to Milan for our kids' health, it is a safe place close to mountains and lake. We used to live in Turin but after Andrea's birth decided to change city. We have nice view from our house but decided to look for a place that could also offer a breathtaking panorama closed to the seaside,too. This is why we decided to go to Poggi and choose our property. Hope that you will enjoy it!

alessandra celoria purchased this apartment in 2009

Why alessandra celoria chose Imperia

Bought it from an English man that used to rent it through Owners Direct since 2003, so we believe that the property matches perfectly with the public and satisfies with price, position and range. More over we choose it just having a glance on the photo through the web. To us it represents an unspoiled corner, from which you can enjoy sun, relax and sight-seeing or staying at home taking the opportunity of using your pool. It is a nice place to stay for a week all year round.

What makes this apartment unique

Close to Genoa and Nice airport from which you can easily rent a car and reach the property in short time (1 hour from Genoa and from Nice). The house itself is at the top of a hill facing the sea. You can enjoy fresh air at night and a nice wind during hot hours. 10 minutes from the beach, you can even go down to the coast by walking.

Notes on accommodation: The property in set in its own gardens on 2 levels and has its own access. The top half of the villa is completely separate and has access from another road on the other side of the hill so you are completely private. The upstairs is owned by an aged German lady who only stays there 2 or 3 weeks in the early summer. The house is directly above the Autostrada (motorway). The road is a long way beneath you, although it is not intrusive. I can provide a photograph if you want, just email me. Car is needed. Car parking inside house's path. Suitable for kids of every age. Outside: Exclusive use of your own small pool which is above ground to maximise views of the sea, 3 x 5m - 1,20m depth (the pool has an extra fee of 100,00 euros needs a simple maintenance guide). There is garden and patio area around 2 sides of the house with panoramic views of the sea and the mountains behind the house, with table and 6 chairs, pizza oven, barbecue, 2 sun loungers and a bench. Second terrace with pool and large sun area, 2 deck chairs, shade from the Oleander trees if you want it with more seating and more wonderful views of the Med. Pick as many lemons or apricots as you want from the garden. Just for information - there are some cats in the area; some guests do like to feed them, this is not a problem but please note that if you do so they will be regular visitors. Utility Room: Price includes electricity, water, gas, WIFI connection, parking, use private pool and gardens. Extras: pool maintenance+cleaning of the villa= 200,00 euros, if required 25,00 per person for laundry cost as for bed linen and towels (charged upon arrival) Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Cleaning of the villa and laundry cost as for bed linen and towels based on 4 occupancy will be charged upon arrival (200,00 euros). Extra towel can be asked. Extra cost for pool maintenance (100,00 euros).

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time enjoying the views, all the lounge areas around the property and the pool was vital to cool down in. Poggi is a lovely small town just above the coast where you get an evening breeze. The Wifi worked really well which my son appreciated. The indoors remained cool enough to get a good night's sleep with the shutters closed when the sun was at its strongest.

Wonderful stay with a fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

This villa and especially the terraces with the pool an the gorgeous view are magnificent and unbelievable. Some littel things in the house could be improved, but these things doesn't disturb at all. A great place to spend relaxing days or weeks or to explore the suuroundings.

The villa and the terraces are just like on the photos.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful ground floor apartment set in terraced gardens with above ground pool. The steps up to the property are quite steep so not suitable for the non-ambulant. The property is exactly as described on the web site and is clean, well decorated and equipped. Outside Pizza oven cooked the best pizza we have ever had. Has secure car parking for one car. Road to property is quite small and the drive is not easy to turn into if you have a big or long car. Managed it with my big Audi A6 estate car with a couple of tight maneuvers; not for the nervous drivers, although you would not be driving in Italy if you were nervous! Recommended.

Owner's Response: dear Rob: so glad to read your review about our property:I am so pleased that you really enjoyed your staying and also added the important infos about our steps: it is exactly as you say and I do normally do not suggest it (or I prefer to specify it) neither to a family with very little kids. As for the pizza: thanks! From next year onwards we will organise also a pizza section with a professional cooker sothat our clients will also learn how to prepare the pizza on their own! As for the road to our property: we always suggest to choose for a small car (in case someone has to rent it). You are right: besides being "nervous" one should always try to "be really patient" in Italy: we do drive very madly!!!! Hoping to welcome you soon. Alessandra

Tennis Monaco/ Monaco Grand Prix. The villa is only 70 minutes on the train from Monaco (25 euros) and is a perfect place to stay if you want to combine a week in the sun and still go to the race, your wife/husband can even stay at the villa while the petrol heads enjoy themselves!


This coast has a mixture of wonderful sandy beaches and secluded coves. The sea is only 500 metres as the crow flies, 5 minutes in the car, you can walk down if you feel fit enough, in about 15 minutes, halfway between Monte Carlo and Portofino, few kilometres from the beach in Imperia. An excellent base to explore both the French and Italian Rivieras. Close to Monaco (1h) and Nice (1,5h) Portofino (2h) Closest sand beach is Prino (2,5 km):it's a private beach (free beach with stones) and Marina di Porto Maurizio (5 km): free and private sand beach- Beach is San Lorenzo: stones (4km.). rocky beach 2,5 km in Prino.


Easy to reach from either; Nice airport (most airlines fly there) 60 minutes drive or; Genoa (Cheap flights from Stansted) 80 minutes drive A 7 (E 25) Milano - Genova-A 6 (E 717) Torino - Savona- A 26 Alessandria - Genova.Main road no. 1 - Aurelia, it is a scenic road that covers Liguria from Ventimiglia to La Spezia. There are regular sailings to the port of Imperia and minor tourist ports thereby allowing for docking of pleasure vessels of all sizes, with excellent facilities.


The villa is located on a hill terraced with olive trees, in the surroundings of Imperia. It is in the little village of Poggi, facing the sea, 2,5km from the cost and the beaches of Porto Maurizio-Imperia of Poggi is only a 5 minute walk away, one of the real pleasures is walking down to buy your fresh bread every morning. The beautiful medieval city of Porto Maurizio is a 10 minute drive away.

Further Details:

There is a little grocery,which is the only shop you can find in the village (there you can buy entry level food). It is also a bar and a local restaurant (booking recommended). There are more than 10 restaurants along the coast, which is 5 minutes by car. All serve a range of Italian dishes, including locally caught fish dishes and other specialities. Liguria is where Pesto was invented! Banks and supermarkets are 10 minutes by car. Supermarkets – there are several supermarkets in the surroundings: the best supermarket near the house is called Simply; it’s about 4 km from the house, direction as follows. Drive down towards the sea, at the bottom of the hill turn left towards Porto Maurizio. At the first round-about take last exit, up small hill. Follow this windy road for ~500 metres; it bends sharply to right as you go down the hill. At next round-about take last exit, go up this road, which follows a river bed on your left, for a few hundred metres and you will see the simply sign on your left, again take last exit on round about and the supermarket entrance is on your right. You will need a 1€ coin to get a trolley. When you leave supermarket you have to turn right which takes you down the other side of the river, this will join up with the road you came in on. Market- as you know Poggi is a hill above the old city of Porto Maurizio, 4,5 km from the house: every Thursday local market take place in the “budello” the little streets selling typical products of Liguria and to best “worth-to-see” Italian design apparels…and of course seasonal vegetables, authentic focaccia and the original pesto. You will certainly enjoy it!
