Cozy and freshly renovated stone house in the Ligurian foothills with a stunning panoramic view and snowy peaks on the horizon. Nestled within a small, friendly village, this loft-like accommodation is immersed in nature, amongst olive trees and vineyards and is a peaceful place to relax and enjoy. Great for hiking, walking, mountain biking, and road cycling - several trails for your enjoyment!

The home is fully equipped with dishes, cooking utensils, towels, etc so feel at home!

The space
This house sits on the hill side and has a loft-like feeling, where the first floor holds the bedroom and bathroom and the second floor holds the main area (living room, kitchen, dining and balcony). When you walk in, you automatically feel a sense of awe because you see the balcony door in front of you which leads you to the outside and incredible views. You then look around and feel a sense of coziness, driven by the warm yellow walls, the colorful kitchen and the clear charm of the place. We were drawn in from the first moment we saw it. Our hope is for you to feel the same (if not better), when you walk in and spend some time here.

On the first floor, we have a queen sized bed that sleeps 2 adults and also holds a newly renovated bathroom. There you will find all the amenities that you need (towels, hair dryer, shampoo, body wash, etc). On the second floor (or main floor) is where you will find the sofa bed, which is a comfortable sofa by day and a bed for the 3rd and 4th person by night.

OUT AND ABOUT
If you want to venture out into the city, there are small towns (Pieve di Teco, Alassio, Imperia and Albenga) within minutes where you can find pizzerias and (both big and local) stores for groceries and shopping. Genova is roughly 1.5 hrs away, a magnificent port city, renowned for its pesto and focaccia and great for a day trip.

You can also find beautiful beaches within 20 mins (at the mediterranean sea) and ski hills within 1 hour. Take in the fresh air, and uninterrupted starry sky of authentic Italy and the delicious cuisine of Liguria. Ideal for a romantic getaway or an outdoorsy trip with a group of 2-4.

In summary, here is the driving distance for a few key towns, cities and necessities:

**Towns/cities**:

Genoa - 1.5 hrs
Nice - 1.5 hrs
Monaco - 1.5 hrs
Pieve di Teco - 13 mins
Borghetto D'Arroscia - 10 mins

Beauty - everywhere! (no joke)

Other things to note
This region is a hiker’s (or biker's) paradise! There are multiple, if not hundreds of hiking trails of varying difficulty levels! The fresh air awaits you :)

Whether you like the hills, the mountains or the beach, this region of Liguria has outdoor options for every preference (all within less than 1 hour, if not within a few minutes driving). The summer is great, but so are the other 3 seasons - due to location and its micro-climate, this region has a generally pleasant temperature all year round.

Location

Cascina, Liguria, Italy

Our house is surrounded by a few other houses and a little church. It sits perfectly in the mountainside, overlooking the valley. On the hilltop there are spectacular walking paths that take you through unspoiled forests, and to picturesque villages, with breathtaking views. The nearby towns have great food options, such as 'La Forchetta Golosa' pizzeria in Pieve di Teco and the 'Antica Osteria dei Frantoi di Vinai Isabella' in Canata - owned by a local family based out of their own house.

Milly is from Canada and Michiel from The Netherlands. We met each other while working for an NGO in a small coastal town in the south of Tanzania. In Tanzania we also crossed paths with what is now 'our' dog Macchia. We brought him back to where we currently live, in Amsterdam. The love for Italy and nature and the need to get away from city hecticness, made us look for a cute and cozy spot in the Ligurian mountains! We love everything the region has to offer - delicious food (and wine and coffee to boot), open fresh air, and a warm culture! For us, to travel and to immerse yourself in a new culture is to live.
