Villa Tanaro is a stone villa that sits alone among the rural fields of the Tanaro Valley. It's divided into three apartments with a shared garden. There's ample parking, ping pong and BBQ. The apartment is 60 meters squared with two bedrooms, large bath and modern kitchen with eating area. There's a private balcony off the kitchen with a view of the Cave of the Saracens.
The garden is a great place to eat, dream, read, relax and watch the night sky. Owners live on site with two affectionate dogs. We are here to assist you with your holiday but are very conscious of our guests' privacy.
Recently renovated and decorated to reflect the atmosphere of the surrounding forest. Modern kitchen with all you need for cooking, no dining room, just the large eating bar seen in the photos. There is no actual living area but the yellow bedroom, called the forest room is quite large. If bringing your own sheets, both double beds have duvets so bring a duvet cover. Otherwise we rent linens. We can offer some storage in the garage for skis or outdoor gear. If you're a rock climber bring your climbing shoes!

About the neighbourhood
Ormea is a small town of approximately 1,700 inhabitants. Each season is celebrated with various cultural activities and different 'sagras' or eating festivals. It's a great place for families as children can ride horses, play volleyball and mini golf or try their hand at fishing. Ormea in Onda is a fun water slide competition not to be missed as a spectator or as a participant!
Students of history will enjoy exploring the forts and towers built to defend against the Saracens. Food enthusiasts will love the cheeses, typical pasta saraceno, bagna cauda, Ormeasco wine, fresh trout and of course . . . the mushrooms. We have picnic baskets and can organize wine and cheese tastings in the garden at the house.
