Gorgeous Dream Getaway
We celebrated my 60th birthday with a group of friends at this lovely house with breathtaking views and all the comforts of home. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all excellent!
We spent the days in Dolceacqua or France and Liguria at the sea, sampling the local wines, lunching in small villages and back to the house in time to enjoy the sun, the pool and the property. We cooked dinner in the well equipped kitchen every evening and ate outside under the stars.
Ria and Vincenzo, the homes caretakers, were wonderful and full of information about the house and the area.
One evening, we were very lucky to have been able to hire Vincenzo to be our chef for a celebratory dinner. Course after course of amazing home made Italian recipes continued though the evening. Ria, alongside Vincenzo, made this night AMAZING for us and our guests. In just one night, they already felt like family :)
For anyone who is looking to get away from all the hustle and bustle and overrun tourist areas, then this is the place for you! A slice of paradise on the hilltop.
We hope to return in the near future to create more wonderful memories and to enjoy the house, the area and peace...............

Italian Bliss! Perfecto!
My 3 friends with our wives rented Villa Italian Riviera as my wife's wedding gift and we had a perfect and magical stay at the Villa Italian Riviera. It is the perfect place to go for a couple, a group of friends or the whole family. The property offers the perfect combination of privacy with great entertaining space.
The service we received simply could not have been better. nothing was missing or needed to make our stay any better! Each and every room in the villa offers amazing views so moody was left out from waking up to heavenly views!
We took days trips to Milan, Nice, Monaco, Menton and Genoa. It is located very close to the charming Italian village of Dolceaqua. whether staying at the villa or seeing Italy, France or Monaco, you will have plenty to do or just hang at the pool looking over the mountains. Plus the espresso machine :)
I would definitely suggest hiring the personal chef to make a unbelievable homes de Italian feast right at the villa, that was one of our favorite nights! Vincenzo and aria were so attentive and helpful and were great throughout our whole stay!
I would highly recommend the Villa Italian Riviera to anyone looking for holiday destination wiith friends, family or just a couple's get away!
Thank you for your witty review, we absolutely agree, especially with what you say about Vincenzo e Ria and the 'feasty dinnerparties' they can organise!
Wir sind in Villa Italian Riviera, 4 Erwachsene und 6 Kinder, gewesen. Wir muessen mit allem, was schon geschrieben wurde zustimmen. Was wir noch sehr hochachten war die absolut Private/Intimstelle. Hier ist es fuer einen Fotograf und das Modell ein Superort mit vielen Luxurioes Plaetzchen.
Weiter die mittelalterliche Staedtchen, Dolceacqua, Rocchettta Isolabona und Apricale sind uns in eine "andere Welt" gebracht.
Eigenlich will ich es hier nicht mehr verherrlichen, sonst wird es im Zukunft nicht mehr frei fuer uns... :-)
Vielen dank fur das nette sympathische Reaktion!
Well built new villa with fantastic view
We (4 adults and 3 kids) stayed one week at the villa in the mid September. Villa is located up with mountains. There's a few kilometres long scenery road from the Dolceacqua city centre to the villa. Location is perfect to visit nearby cities in Italy, France and Monaco.
Villa is very well build with a top class kitchen and materials. It's elegant, practical and cozy – fit's well in the place it's located. View to the mountains and sea is magnificient. There's a lot of olive trees, rosemary, lemon etc. plants all over the properties. Pool has a proper size and it's deep enough to dive - our kids loved it.
All practical matters concerning the rental was managed with professional and kind matter – we felt very much welcome to stay and enjoyed a lot our holiday. Thank you again Ria and Vincenzo!
Thank you for the nice and personal reaction!
Dream holiday destination in Italy!
My friends and I had a wonderful and unforgettable stay at the Villa Italian Riviera. It is the perfect place to go for a couple, a group of friends or the whole family.
The service we received was excellent. We loved the personal touch that the owners have given to the accommodation. Each and every room in the villa offers amazing views!
The villa itself is a perfect oasis of calm. It is located very close to the charming Italian village of Dolceaqua. Bigger cities such as Nice and San Remo are just a car-ride away!
I would highly recommend the Villa Italian Riviera to anyone looking for holiday destination with a heavenly peaceful and relaxing atmosphere!
Luxurious centrally located villa
What a wonderful luxurious villa and what a nice relaxing atmosphere! The area is breath-taking. Breakfast outside with a beautiful view, then a dip in the lovely pool. Later in the afternoon a drink at sunset and in the evening dinner with a fire. There is a main house and a guesthouse. We stayed with four ladies in the main house, but there is room for more people. The house is (more than) fully equipped, from fantastic kitchen (with built-in coffee machine for excellent Italian coffee!) to several beautiful bathrooms. The villa is centrally located so we were able to cover a lot of ground, from of course Italy to Monaco and France. Dolceacqua itself is a lovely picturesque town with a lot of history. Highly recommended! We will be back!
Dolceacqua is one of the most beautiful medieval villages in the province of Liguria. It is situated on a river, the "Nervia" that the oldest part (15th century) from the center (with the Castle Doria) separates the newer section (19th century) with the square. The two parts of the village are connected by an impressive stone bridge from the 15th century, which among other things is painted by Claude Monet in 1884 (called "A jewel of lightness"). The village square in the heart of the village overlooking the bridge. Here you can sit outside under the plane trees and between the Italians enjoy Italian wines and cuisine or an espresso with dolce. There are also common (biological) markets and dances in the village or in the vicinity. Be in and for the old castle of Dolceacqua held in high season outdoor music performances.
Dolceacqua is 8 km from the Mediterranean Sea on the Riviera Flowers with the coastal towns of Bordighera, San Remo and Ventimiglia around the corner, where there are beautiful buildings with old glory, great restaurants, upscale clothing stores, markets and fantastic beaches. The house is just steps from the French Riviera, with its diverse cosmopolitan beaches. Within half an hour you are in Menton or Monte Carlo and within an hour in Nice.
Inland you have small waterfalls and rivers where you can swim (near the rustic village of Rocchetta with two very welcoming family restaurants) and in less than 20 minutes you can be at the beach in Bordighera and Vallecrosia. Also here you have fantastic, cheap informal beach restaurants where you can rent beach chairs.
In terms of sports you next nearby swimming, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding (riding school Vallecrosia) also play golf. Golf Club San Remo is located on the Gulf Strada 59 in San Remo (tel 0,184,557,093). In the winter you can ski in Limone Piemonte all Liguria (five minutes drive from the villa).
The villa is within an hour's drive from Nice Airport. It is about 1350 km drive from Amsterdam and motorway (which runs until the last 12 km from the villa) easily accessible (via France or via Germany and Switzerland).
