Rezzo is a peaceful and picturesque mountainside village within easy reach of Nice or Genoa. The traditional architecture is unspoilt and interweaved with beautiful car-free streets winding their way up the hillside.
Casa Soprana is a recently renovated property just a few hundred yards from the centre of Rezzo with fantastic views over the village and down the valley beyond. The traditional stone exterior is combined with a beautifully decorated and fun interior with all possible mod cons. For all you eco-warriors out there, heating and hot-water is supplied by a combination of solar panels and biomass boiler - it was certainly toasty-warm in January anyway!
We were met at our hire car by the charming owners, Dave, Emma & young Tilly. All our luggage was whisked away in a cool three-wheeled motorbike/pick-up vehicle that I think they called an "Appie" - don't rely on my spelling though! Remember, most of the traditional hillside streets are (thankfully) not wide enough for cars. Dave & Emma were very helpful in recommending things to do; and if you ask Tilly very nicely, she might even show you her pet chickens!
I would recommend Casa Soprana & Rezzo to families, groups and individuals looking for a picturesque and peaceful location "to get away from it all". Whilst lovely & quiet when we visited in January, I am told that there are various fetes and street parties in the summer months so time your visit according to what you're after. The locals were certainly very friendly and I can't imagine this village being anything other than relaxing at any time of year. Given its mountainside location and mostly car-free streets, it is obviously best suited to those who aren't afraid of a bit of walking; there again, being a village, you can pretty much walk anywhere within 10 minutes anyway.
