“A Taste of Real Italy”
Reviewed 7 November 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We've just returned from our second visit to this lovely home in Pigna. The house, in typical Ligurian style, is on 4 floors and has all of the home comforts one would need to experience the Italian lifestyle. Set in the heart of the town, the house is well situated for walks and discovering the local area. The quaint and mediaeval town of Pigna is well worth exploring and the picturesque town of Dolceaqua, a short drive away, is a must.

The Italian Riviera is around 18 kilometres away and is one of the most beautiful coastlines in Europe. Well situated for France a trip to Monaco, Nice and other French Riviera resorts are a short train ride away from Ventimiglia (the main train station) and very reasonable in terms of cost.

The house is well furnished, bright and spotlessly clean. The view from the upstairs balconies are a joy to behold and waking up to the sound of the bells of San Michele (the 15th century church that stands metres away from the house) make the experience all the more unusual and truly Italian.

We love Italy and visit there quite often. Pigna and this lovely home give a taste of Italian life and are certainly worth a visit. There are a few good restaurants within walking distance. La Terme serves fresh local produce and their home made dishes have won a number of major regional and national food awards. Sur Pont, in the village itself, is newly opened and provides a good selection of pizzas and hot food in pleasant surroundings.

Pigna itself has a number of festivals over the summer period that is well worth looking out for. We experienced the feast of San Michele which was 5 days for festivities including 2 dances and ravioli and gnocchi festival - absolutely fantastic!

So, if you are looking for something quite different and want to explore and enjoy the Ligurian landscape, Pigna and this little house in particular offers a fantastic base to the mountains and coastline. We'll be going back again soon.

Thank you for your honest review. We are pleased you appreciated the house, it's cleanliness and it's situation. Regarding the bells, these are characteristic of all Italian villages and one of the things that we, and a lot of our guests, feel add to the charm of the place. It's a valid point so thanks again for your review.
