Lovely apartment, charming area, attentive owner
My family and I just returned from spending a wonderful Christmas in Pigna. The apartment is large, clean and comfortable. We were surprised to find a beautiful & dramatic natural waterfall next to the bedroom windows coming down from the mountain - apparently its there when its been raining, though we had lovely weather the week we were there. The beds were very cosy! The kitchen has all the basics and we cooked excellent meals with the locally acquired ingredients. The village is lovely & historic and one can walk extensively through it and up to a mountain top; there is an ancient church where we attended Midnight Mass and felt welcome. A car is essential and from Pigna, one can day trip to the French Riviera, or visit nearby towns Sanremo, Ventimiglia, Apricale, Dolceaqua. Neil responded to all our queries promptly and gave us great advice. A great winter getaway - would love to go back in another season! Highly recommended!
Beautiful Apartment and Village
Just the most lovely fairytale holiday for us! The apartment was very clean, very spacious, uncluttered furnishings. The beautiful quiet surroundings were just lovely to wake up in and enjoy breakfast outside on the balcony. Amenities were all a short drive away, and Neil and his father Sandro were very helpful. This is a great starting point for discovering the Ligurian area! Absolute recommendations are the Hanbury gardens in Ventimiglia, the Genoa Aquarium and our personal favorite the town of Alassio where we went for frequent runs along the seaside boulevard. The town has lovely little streets, a beautiful natural mountain spring (Carne), Gelato shop and restaurants to chose from!
What a terrific holiday
We spent two weeks at Casa Dolce Vita in Pigna and had a terrific time! The apartment is very spacious and incredibly comfortable. The property was very clean and well maintained. The balcony is wonderful place to have breakfast or lunch – we enjoyed the fantastic views and the sunshine. We were there with 2 families and had so much room. The owner Neil and his father were very friendly and answered all of our questions, recommending great restaurants in the area.
We went to visit the many small villages and admiring the breathtaking view of the mountains and the sea. An amazing village is Dolceacqua, where the doors are painted by artists and where one can get lost strolling on the narrow pathways through the town. But Pigna is, in my opinion, the most beautiful village in the valley. It was a great experience and I would definitely recommend this vacation home and it's surroundings to anyone looking for a romantic and memorable holiday.
We will definitely be back, Grazie mille!
Charming Italian village house
A very enjoyable stay in a lovely traditional village house with lots of character. Cosy, clean and tidy with all facilities. The owner is friendly and very helpful with a good knowledge of the area.
Pigna is a charming village with superb views and several good walks locally. The Desir de Roy bar/restaurant is welcoming and good value for money.
We would certainly recommend this property.
A charming apartment
The appartment is charming, clean and very spacious. All necessary equipment is present to enjoy your stay. The property has a long balcony that crossed the entire façade with a great view and in full sun most of the day, we ate most of our meals on it. Just a small note, we would recommend the owner to install Wifi connection even on a pay as you go form, even if it was nice to have our three teenagers with their eyes out of the phone screen.
The countryside nearby is full of picturesque villages and valleys while the coast is a tourist's paradise.We truly enjoyed our stay and the kids loved it, they even made local friends over the two weeks we stayed here. Fully recommended.
Pigna is a 12th century village just 45mins from Nice airport. The village can be found along the Nervia valley nestling in the hills and greenery in a stress free easy location.
