Easy access to the stunning Italian Riviera, as well as exploring local sights and gourmet experiences nearby.

The space

SAFETY UPDATE: Our guests can be assured that we are taking extra care to ensure all frequently touched surfaces are thoroughly disinfected throughout the property between guest stays. We employ a professional cleaner and use anti-viral cleaning products and steam cleaning for floors, kitchen and bathroom.

Nestled at the top of a small, friendly village, this accommodation is immersed in nature, amongst olive trees and vineyards and is a peaceful place to relax and unwind, surrounded by woodlands full of wild birds & animals.

Guest access
Guests have access to adjacent car parking, sometimes shared with hosts. They also have shared access to private meadowland and orchards. Guest's house is separate from the main house, with gardens in-between. The private dining and sunbathing terraces are for guests-only, have uninterrupted valley views and are not overlooked.

Other things to note
There is a spring water machine in the local town of Pieve, where guests can refill the house water bottles and their own for 5c per litre. This delicious drinking water is filtered spring water available in both still or fizzy. The household water is fairly hard and we advise against drinking it in large quantities. We encourage our guests to reduce their plastic footprint, and reduce and recycle as much as possible.

Dogs are the ONLY pets that we allow to stay at the property. We have strict house rules regarding bringing your dog(s). Please refer to the house rules.

Trastanello, Liguria, Italy

The house is fairly isolated, overlooking a very small Medieval village with only a handful of other inhabitants - but only 30 minutes drive from the vibrant and chic Italian Riviera. There are lots of ruins and beautiful restorations in the village, and surrounding villages, and there is a stunning mountain spring-fed dip pool very close by - just follow the sound from the house. There are walks into the woodlands straight from the property, as well as a large adjacent meadow and fruit orchard for camping and sunbathing. There are wild swimming spots dotted around several neighbouring valleys also.
