Diano Marina is a tourist village that became popular during the 1800’s as a seaside resort and it is visited by tourists from all over the Europe.

The Western Ligurian Riviera climate is famous for being delightful in the summer and mild in the winter.

This makes Diano Marina, an ideal destination for holidays throughout the year.

All along the coast there are sandy beaches, with nice beach establishments.

We suggest visiting the natural and historical beauties nearby us, like the medieval village of Cervo Ligure, Hambury’s botanical gardens or the marvelous inland villages as Dolceacqua, Bussana Vecchia, Triora and Apricale.

As an alternative, we suggest longer trips such as the Genoa’s Aquarium (the second biggest in Europe), Portofino or the “Cinque Terre“, or the nearby Montecarlo and French Côte d’Azur.

About Mauro Bricca

Mauro Bricca

Mauro Bricca purchased this villa in 1970

Why Mauro Bricca chose Diano Marina

This was my parent's property, where I grew up.

I have recently renewed the villa and I have added the swimming pool. And now I am proud to offer it to my guests.

What makes this villa unique

It's in the best location of Diano Marina, with a stunning sea-view.

You will find in my house a lot of technology!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Mauro,

I sent a message earlier but it did not get through.

I wanted to thank you again for the lovely holiday we spent at your villa. It was spotless and comfortable and the kids as well as us adults enjoyed the beautiful pool and jacuzzi.

The hi-tech features of the villa make it a unique place.

We loved the beaches nearby and the wonderful warm evenings we spent in Diano Marina and Cervo.

Villa il Poggiolo is a truly magical place. We are looking forward to coming back in the future.

Kind regards,

Laura, David, Dan, parents, brothers and the rest

  • 5 of 5

Great Villa! We had a wonderful stay here. Property owner/manager was very proactive in communicating with us about our stay. The apartment is very spacious, clean, modern, and well equipped. There is ample parking on the property. From the apartment, there are shops and restaurants close by. We would absolutely love to stay here again if we are back to visiting this area!

If you need a place of perfect serenity with breath-views, this is where you want to be! Mauro and Stefano are the best hosts we have ever had! The VIP Suite is heavenly. The poolside, jacuzzi, the music and the view that comes with it all, is what you need for a perfect holiday. We were a group of 10 persons, including a toddler, and we had ample room for everyone. Eating breakfast on the terrace with the view of the sea was divine. Enjoying a glass of prosecco and watching the sunset is a highlight. I could go on and on. In sum, I would highly recommend this property anytime and I am looking forward to another opportunity to enjoy this property. These views are shared by the rest of my family who came from Cameroon, USA, Kenya and Switzerland

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing week at Il Poggiolo. The VIP Suite is very well furnished with great kitchen facilities and a brilliant lounge with very comfortable sofa, TV, Projector screen for movies, surround sound. The bedrooms were large with plenty of storage and comfortable beds.

We stayed during the last week of April and the weather was fairly kind, allowing a bit of downtime around the pool area and the hot tub was more useful than the pool at this time of year but both have spectacular views of the ocean.

Mauro was very helpful from start to finish and would highly recommend the villa.

Beautiful House and perefect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation in the Italian Riviera! The house was absolutely beautiful. The location was perfect! We did not want to leave. The house was exactly as described we loved the fact that we could play music anywhere inside or outside of the house. We spent our evenings watching movies on big screen TV. The kids loved it. The kitchen was perfect, we were able to prepare large family meals. I would definitely recommend this house to all of my friends and family. As far as location goes we were able to walk to the beach. During the day we traveled to picture perfect cities up and down the coast and inland. I have never been to this part of Italy before and although I hadn't heard of this town before I felt so lucky that we found this amazing place to stay. We rented the large house with another family and we had other friends rent the upstairs condo. It was a perfect place for groups and families. Some day we will be back!

Die Villa, das Jacuzzi, der Pool, das technische Equipment, die Hängematte, der Meerblick, die Sonnenliegen, der Grillplatz..... EIN TRAUM! Man fährt durch das elektrische Gitter in den Hof und fühlt sich sofort wie zu Hause! Wir wurden von einem sehr zuvorkommenden Gastgeber begrüßt und mit vielen guten Tipps für leckeres Essen und Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Nähe versorgt. Die Wohnung, die wir zu zweit gemietet haben, hat traumhaften Meerblick! Unvergesslich! Zudem gibt es wirklich alles, was man in einer Wohnung braucht und noch ein bisschen mehr! Toller, großer Fernseher, einen zweiten TV im Zimmer, Internet, Musik, Filme, Bücher und sogar bunt-beleuchtete Wasserstrahlen in der Dusche... sehr geschmackvolle Einrichtung und Ausstattung, also auch Teller und Gläser, wirklich sehr schön! In dieser Villa kann man absolut perfekt entspannen! Auch sehr ideal für mehrere Familien und Freunde. Es gibt genügend Platz (2 Wohnungen für jeweils 4 Pers. und eine Suite für bis zu 12 Pers). Im Freien findet man genügend Stühle und Tische und ausreichend Sonnenliegen bzw. eine Hängematte und eine sehr schöne Liege -Insel. Der Jacuzzi und das Wasser im Pool waren immer sehr sauber! Überhaupt war alles in perfektem Zustand. Sogar das Tischtennis-Netz war nagelneu! Der Garten war sehr gepflegt und mit einem Bose-Soundsystem konnte man überall im Freien Musik hören.

Fazit: Man kommt in der Villa Il Poggiolo an und ist sofort im Urlaub - und man will unbedingt bald wiederkommen! ABSOLUT EMPFEHLENSWERT!
