"Da Giua" is a family-run bed & breakfast that opened at Christmas 2004. It is located in the heart of the ancient village of Apricale (in Latin "Apricus"- which means, "open to the sun"), one of the most beautiful places in Western Liguria, not far from the sea and from the Cote d'Azur. It is reached by climbing just a few kilometres into the Nervia Valley. We take our name from Grandpa Giua, much loved and well known in all of Apricale, so much so that the Bed and Breakfast is known affectionately by the nickname of "the grandparents' house". Recently restored, the Pisano family has retained the typically Ligurian architectural details of the building and offer double bedrooms with beautiful views of the valley and the village. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, central heating and satellite TV. The wooden beams of the vaulted ceilings, the majestic fireplace, the kitchen - mirror of an ancient world that seems to have disappeared - make this an ideal place to spend relaxing weekends, for young people, couples and families, in contact with nature and the old traditions. Apricale is located at the foot of the medieval castle and facing the ancient main square in the centre of the village. It is the ideal starting point to visit the magnificent treasures that Apricale has to offer visitors - a mixture of history, charm, traditions and legends.
