On top of a hill lies the adorable village of Apricale. The rooms of the hotel are unusual since they are built in original houses of the village. We were placed in an appartment where two other rooms shared a living room with us. The staff was very kind on the phone, by email and in person. The bed was... More

Very cute and unusual village. The idea of this 'hotel' is to have spread rooms accross the village. However you have other guests staying near you and like most hotel, be prepared to hear pretty much everything that is happening next door. So if you are a sensitive sleeper, bring your earplugs. Otherwise it is a nice experience and I'd... More

Apricale is a delightful hillside village in a wonderful setting. Steep narrow streets with steps make it traffic free so you must be prepared to carry luggage. Reception staff are very friendly and rooms around the village are unique with an excellent breakfast served nearby, including homemade cakes, They deserve to succeed with this venture..

The concept of an Albergo Diffuso is so perfect for Apricale which would be ruined by building a new hotel. As it is, characterful rooms/apartments are dotted around with a reception near the entry point of the village and a central restaurant for breakfast. On arrival we were given an enthusiastic welcome. As we spoke very little Italian and she... More

Having visited this medieval perched village several years ago we were happy to see that several bandbs have opened offering a chance for a unique experience. This place is a collection of rooms scattered throughout the village with a central breakfast area. The town itself is small and compact but it's very easy to get lost in the warren of... More

Last summer this hotel treated us appallingly. We booked a luxury suite for four people complete with kitchen and fantastic views. What we received was a cramped room with two double beds squashed, no kitchen and the only view was from a tiny window in the bathroom. However they had asked for the money up front - they offered us... More

Apricale is absolutely breathtaking and the MuntaECara is a perfect fit. The hotel consists of renovated homes throughout the town. The town itself is gorgeous and fun. The locals are friendly and english, french, italian and german are spoken by most people. We have 3 children from 4 to 11 years old and they didn't want to leave. It's also... More

This hotel lived up to our expectations, which were high after reading all of the good reports from previous travellers' posts. Apricale is charming and atmospheric and the hotel room was bijou but clean and beautifully appointed. The village was so quiet and relaxing, yet in easy reach of the hectic and glamourous French and Italian Riviera. We appreciated the... More

While driving up the winding road to Apricale we were amazed with the sight of the village. It looks like a fairytale village carved out of the mountain. Extraordinarily exciting and curious, we were greeted by Valentina's boyfriend, who escorted us to our room. The rooms are dislocated, which in this case indicates that they're not in the same building.... More
