    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    The cottage is in the popular hilltop village of Apricale, considered one of the most beautiful in Italy and whose name comes from 'apricus', meaning 'open to the sun.' Apricale is situated in the foothills of the proposed UNESCO World Heritage site of the Ligurian Maritime Alps, 10 miles from the sea and is an ideal base for a spring or autumn walking holiday, with many miles of trails and with a mild climate. It is a nature lover's paradise, full of wildflowers in spring, with many species of butterfliies and birdlife. Also a great base for a summer beach holiday with easy access to the Italian and French Rivieras: Nice (40miles), Monaco and San Remo (25 miles) but cheaper than staying in those locations. see also http://holiday-homes-in-italy.blogspot.it/2012/11/acc... more

Apricale is a magical place - it was like stepping into a medieval film set, but it's for real. Such a quaint and unspoilt village but vibrant with local life. Robert's cottage was everything we could have asked for and more. Stunning views from the bedroom and terrace and so beautifully and sympathetically restored. It was equipped with all that... more

While we didn't have the opportunity to meet Robert, all arrangements were made ahead of time, and Robert provided us with a map and all necessary info. There was no waiting around to get a key, and we easily found the cottage. The room had recently been updated and remodeled but still had a rustic feel to it. It was...
