About the property

Relaxing family villa in a fabulous setting with fantastic sea views

Are you looking for the perfect holiday destination on the italian riviera, which not only offers you peace and quiet, beautiful beaches, sunshine and sea, but also plenty of opportunities for activities and lovely trips in the local area? Then you have come to the right place. Our holiday villa, which sleeps 8, is set in a hillside location on the mediterranean coast, less than 130 metres from the azure sea. The house provides a stunning 180-degree unobstructed sea view and was entirely renovated and modernised in 2009 in the ligurian style. Around the house there is a breathtaking terrace and the garden offers all the privacy you could ask for. Besides the sunshine, the terrace also offers enough shade to allow you to enjoy it at any time of the year. Our holiday villa has its own swimming pool (7,40 x 3,75 m).

About Marjolein

We are a Dutch family with 3 children. We bought this villa in 2008 and since then we turned it into a little paradise. We like to share this beautifull place with other people instead of leaving it empty.

Liguria has the mildest climate and gets more sunshine hours than any other part of Italy. We love this part of Italy because its really authentic and in the local vicinity you will find beaches, marinas, picturesque villages, hills, hamlets which date back centuries (to Medieval times), olive groves, an extensive foot- and cycle path running along the seafront, various footpaths through the hills, cosmopolitan cities etc.

Wonderful setting and lovely house

  • 4 of 5

There were 8 of us staying at Cipressa (3 generations) and we all had a great holiday. The house is large and comfortable, well equipped and very clean. The kitchen has everything you need to cook for a family. We particularly appreciated the lovely terraces, well equipped with tables for eating outside. The large tree provides welcome shade, and there is lots of space around the house with easy chairs for relaxing and enjoying the wonderful view. The swimming pool is better than it appears in the photos! It is such a lovely house and garden that it is tempting to do very little except relax in the garden with a book and a glass of wine! However, it is important to be aware that the house is built into the slope of a hill (which means there is a stunning view of the coast) but it also means that the ground is on different levels with steps and slopes unsuitable for very small children and anyone with mobility issues. To drive the car up to the parking area involves a very steep slope with a hazardous drop on one side, and this was the only difficulty we had with the house - and the only reason we awarded 4 stars instead of 5. The Aurelia (coast road) is very busy and we did not consider it safe to walk along (narrow with no footpath) although we note that no other guests mentioned that difficulty. Apart from that we would thoroughly recommend the house. San Lorenzo has amenities for a family holiday - a sandy beach (lovely for swimming) cafes/ ice creams, etc. We recommend the restaurant Antica Piazzetta. We also drove to San Remo and Imperia, - both easily accessible and worth visiting. In fact we all had such a good time we very much hope to return for another holiday.

Nice villa with amazing sea view.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, well equipped and beds are very comfortable.

A beautiful terrace is in the shadow by a large pine tree.

San Lorenzo - San Remo bike path along the coast is a fabulous way to spend a day. The house had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay and for making our own meals and relaxing on the terrace!

perfect relaxing family house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull two weeks in this beautifull villa. The seaview is stunning and relaxing. The house and terrace are well equiped and the beds are fantastic. We loved the area and made a lot of daytrips. When you come with children from the age of 10 years old, we can recommend the spectacular canyoning trip near Pieve di Teco. Next summer we will book this villa again !

Fabulous setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely, relaxing week at this villa, which was clean and well-equipped. The views from the property over the sea are beautiful, and it was surprisingly peaceful considering that it is close to the main coast road. We walked down to San Lorenzo for delicious seafood on a couple of evenings, only a short distance along the road you join a footpath alongside the sea and reach San Lorenzo in 20 minutes or so. The garden is steep so young children would need close supervision. The path up to the house is also steep so wouldn't suit anyone with mobility problems. Apart from this I would fully recommend it, plenty to do in the area too if you can drag yourself away from the view! The owner was very friendly and helpful too.

Special interest holidays:

Visit the artists’ village of Bussana Vecchia: in 1887, this village was devastated by an earthquake. Around 1960, scores of artists and hippies from across Europe flocked to this ghost village to live and work, despite the fact that the village had no running water or mains electricity. Soon, a very special artists’ village had emerged from the ruins of the old village. The locals now make their living from tourism.


San Lorenzo al Mare

The nearest sand beach is in San Lorenzo al Mare, which lies east of our house. It’s a lovely little village, twenty minutes’ walk away. Some 100 metres down the Aurelia (the coastal road) you will find the entrance to a wonderful footpath which runs right alongside the sea. En route, you will pass various rock and pebble beaches (popular with the Italians) which are a magnet for so many swimming and snorkelling enthusiasts.


Our holiday villa is an hour’s drive from Nice airport (France). Cipressa is a small village on the Italian Riviera. It is located between the towns of San Remo and Imperia. Piani Cipressa is officially part of the village of Cipressa, but lies just outside it, right by the sea (near San Lorenzo). Access to the house is by a narrow road which branches off from the Aurelia (the coastal road).


San Remo

Only a 20-minute drive from our house is the fashionable resort of San Remo, known for its casino and luxurious shopping streets. At the beginning of the 20th century, many famous people flocked here because of the mild climate (the Empress Sisi, the Russian royal family, Alfred Nobel etc.). The old part of San Remo is also worth a visit. From the harbour you can take a dolphin and whale-watching boating excursion!

Further Details:

Foot- and cycle seafront

The foot- and cycle seafront, which follows the route of the old railway, runs right alongside the seashore. By the end of 2010, which is the seafront’s projected completion date, it will measure 74 kilometres in total. The seafront will then stretch from the south of France, along the Ligurian coast and on to Genoa, passing 8 historical villages and San Remo on the way. At present, 24 kilometres of this car-free path has been made ready for use and this section of the seafront is close to our holiday house. The path is on the flat and quite wide, so very suitable for families.

You can already cycle from San Lorenzo to San Remo in 45 minutes, or continue on to Ospedaletti. The view is brilliant and en route you pass lovely little villages and idyllic beaches. Fringed by the Alps on the one side and by the Mediterranean on the other, this will be one of the most beautiful cycle paths in Europe and the first to run along the Italian coast. This construction project will open up access to 5 kilometres of the coastline.
