About the Owner

the house, dating back to the XVI century, is completely restored with care and love for the past. A job lasted five years, meeting all kinds of difficulties... the opportunity to publish the pictures you just saw, is a source of pride and great satisfaction for my husband and our two children but especially for me, I confess. The project was so exciting to inducing me - executive in a big company - to radically change my working life. A good result I think, but what an effort! I worked hard to get it, but now the dream of my life is reality. I love so much this place, (I got married here, in the family castle that you see on left ), than I have shifted a bit of my passion into the home walls . Hope you feel what I mean if you stay here some days!

First of all, many thanks for your kind welcome and the efforts you made in order to accomodate us. We all had a great time, and this is only partly due to the gorgeous house and the beautiful surroundings.

You were a very warm and gracefull host; Ciprian and myself, we both agreed that you are one special person...Ligia A.

Traumurlaub mit Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten hier eine traumhafte Ferienwoche im Hinterland von Alassio. Mit viel Liebe und gutem Geschmack wurde das ehemalige Gehöft zu einem luxuriösen und modernen Haus restauriert. Wir fühlten uns hier sofort wohl. Es fehlt an nichts, verschiedene Sitzmöglichkeiten im Freien, eine gut ausgestattete Küche, die Betten sind super bequem und die Badezimmer komfortabel und schön. Einen großen fantastischen Pool hatten wir für uns ganz alleine. Von den lieben Eigentümern Elisa und Ricardo wurden wir herzlich empfangen und bekamen tolle Tips für Strand und Restaurants. Tagsüber waren wir an den verschiedenen sehr schönen Sandstränden in Alassio und Umgebung. Jeden Tag an einem anderen Strand. Abends Barbecue auf dem Aussengrill und frische Feigen direkt vom Baum geerntet. Dazu ein Glas Rotwein und die Lichter an der Küste sehen. Was braucht man mehr im Urlaub? Und es gibt so viele Ausflugsziele: Monaco, Nizza, San Remo ... Wir kommen definitiv gerne wieder, denn es war so wunderschön! Andrea und Andy

The Perfect Place for an Extended Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place in the warm sun in Italy for a family of 4 and grandparents and this suited us perfectly. There was plenty of space inside and out, with a private swimming pool to cool down in when it got too hot. The whole place well maintained with Elisa and Riccardo discrete but nearby with solutions to any little problem and answers to all questions.

The place is up the hills a little bit with cooling breezes and magnificent views, so you need a small car - or a scooter! - to get into Alassio which had all amenities and a thriving night life. But it was nice to escape back afterwards to the peace of the villa.

Relaxing Holiday in Beautiful Surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the larger of the two houses, La Maclura, situated in the quiet hamlet of Vegliasco. Vegliasco is 2km from Moglio which has a shop, trattoria, bakery and bar. You can also catch the very reliable bus to Alassio from Moglio if you don't fancy the drive down the mountain yourself. It's a 10 minute drive to Alassio which has beach bars, restaurants and lots of shops.

We were two families so the layout worked perfectly for us as the adults had the two double bedrooms and the children had the children's rooms up in the attic and on the lower ground floor.

The views of Alassio and the sea are spectacular. Elisa and Ricardo were nearby and helped with restaurant bookings and tips on where to park in Alassio and locations of free beaches. They have created a beautiful home and gardens. The house was lovely inside with two terraces and an outdoor pool. We were lucky that the house next door was free during our second week and so we were able to use the outdoor kitchen and pizza oven that belongs to the neighbouring house, also owned by Elisa.

This house is the perfect Italian retreat for a quiet and relaxing holiday.

Fantastica vacanza

  • 5 of 5

Bellissima casa, spaziosa, arredata con gusto, pulita e con ogni confort. Deliziosa la mansarda con la vetrata vista mare!

Il giardino molto curato, piacevole passeggiare e rilassarsi ovunque anche io prossimità della piscina. La distanza dal mare e dal caos permettono di trascorrere vacanze in pieno relax anche se Alassio si raggiunge in auto in meno di dieci minuti. Elisa e il marito sono molto disponibili, attenti ma nello stesso tempo discreti.

Una esperienza da ripetere e da consigliare, in qualsiasi periodo dell'anno!

Vacation with group of friends

  • 5 of 5

We spent there a week in late summer 2013. There were nine adults and two kids. The most perfect number of people would have probably been seven, however we managed very well.

The pool was very nice! And the view from villa amazing! Hiking trails were close, so some of the travel mates went for a longer walks. Since the villa is couple of kilometers uphill from Alassio car is definitely a must. Owner of the villa - Elisa - was always very helpful - during the booking and during our stay.

Wonderful house and garden

  • 5 of 5

Perhaps leading the way: We are a family of five (3 children) from Switzerland and for the last 4 years have last spent our holidays in either one of Elisa's beautiful houses .

Both houses are beautifully restored and offer plenty of space. With the equipment : kitchen utensils, stove, oven are good devices, which are really intended for use. The bathrooms are nice, clean, the water pressure is strong. Even with the mattress Elisa was generous, there are memory mattresses - really very comfortable!

The garden is huge and offers many opportunities to relax. The sea view is fantastic! Each house has its own BBQ place, but it also has a common barbecue place in front of the pool including pizza oven (which gave us a lot of fun).

Each of the houses has it's own pool which is great and perfect for holidays with kids.

I couldn't recomend Elisa's houses more!

Further Details:

The tourist history of Alassio is closely connected to its climate. Very thorough studies have compared the climate of the picturesque bay of Alassio to that of another pearl of Italian tourism, Amalfi. In fact both the coast and hilly belt are exposed to the south, a crown of mountains protects it from the northerly winds, that is why Alassio enjoys the typical Mediterranean maritime climate which is pleasant and mild, with annual range of about 15 degrees, average winter temperature of about 10 degrees and summers refreshed by marine breezes with temperatures around 25 degrees. It is above all due to its favourable climate that Alassio, towards the end of the 18th century, became among the first Italian town to receive tourism from Europe. As time went by, the first wealthy English families who started this trend were replaced by a crowd of tourists coming from all over the world, as the latest statistics on the tourist flux show. The biggest shopping center of Liguria is the 'Budello' of Alassio, the ancient alley stretching across the whole town, parallel to the sea front. Along both sides are the best shops of the western Riviera with their latest ideas and fashions: from the most modern 'griffe', to the most precious antiques and traditional tastes. You'll find here. 24 restaurants, 10 supermarkets, 10 banks and more and more.
