The place where the house is situated is very peaceful, in the high part of the village, with a wonderful sea view and surrounded by olive trees. Better to have a car, however you can reach the village and sandy beaches walking, just 10 minutes. In the village there are also different shops and a small supermarket. Commercial centers are reachable by car in a few minutes, everything is very close.
In the residence (which is composed by 6 little villas only) there is a swimming pool (from 1.10 m to 2.5 m) and a hydromassage next to it, at disposal of all the 6 houses.
The house is situated a few meters over the sea level, and a few minutes walking to the village where there are shops. Going down walking is nice, while the path uphill is quite steep.
The small beaches in the village are sandy and are good for children and adults. It is a very nice village, not big but an ancient village of fishermen, with many delicious restaurants and pizzerias, not expensive at all ( information available inside the house).
The house has all the modern furnitures , including dishwasher, washmachine, microwave, electric oven, toaster, boiler, BBQ outside. Air conditionned in all the rooms (included in the price)
There is a nice garden surrounding the house, and a big porch with table and chairs to eat outside, and 2 sunbeds (other 2 belonging to the house are available in the swimming pool).
In the basement floor there are 3 bedrooms (1 with 2 single beds plus a fold able bed, 2 with double bed and in one there is a TV) and a bathroom with a big shower..
On the ground floor, there is the kitchen all equipped, the lovely living room with Sofa (with a charming Stone wall and ceiling), dining room, TV (with satellite aerial) and DVD reader, Internet WIFI connection, a bathroom with shower. There is a private parking place just in front of the house If you like biking, the new bike path extends through all the coast in between San Lorenzo al Mare and Ospedaletti, in the Imperia province, and it is really beautiful.
The bikes can be rent in the village (Santo Stefano al Mare).
I also suggest to visit the site dedicate to whalewatching in Liguria, this is an amazing experience for everyone: it is a journey with a small boat
where they bring you to wait and watch the cetaceans, whales and dolphins.
In the house there is the brochure anyway, with the number to reserve the day. I have seen dolphins and a small whale!
Very nice villages to visit in the surroundings, such as Triora, Dolceacqua, Dolcedo, Badalucco, Sanremo is only 7 km and Cote D'Azur 25 km. Genova and Nice are 1 hour driving from the house. Railway station a few minutes away, buses and taxes available.
I do live in Milan but I fell in love with Santo Stefano al Mare, a lovely village on the Ligurian coast, not impacted by mass tourism and thus very different from other places you might choose for your vacation.
owner/property manager purchased this villa in 2006
The house is really charming, with the Stones and the Environment, typical Mediterranean, with olive trees and a wonderful seaview. Relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.
wonderful landscape, peace, with a charming house full of all modern comforts
I can highly recommend this lovely property for a family holiday in beautiful Santo Stefano al Mare. The house has been beautifully renovated and is spacious, clean and is situated in a lovely quite location on the hill above the village of Santo Stefano. Every morning we enjoyed our walk down to the village for coffee and to buy locally grown produce.
The house works very well for a family and having access to the lovely big swimming pool made our stay perfect. We enjoyed many evenings dinning out on the terrace overlooking the sea view – it's very special.
Barbara, the owner, is fantastic and made our three week stay very easy and enjoyable. We can’t thank her enough for all her help and advice.
I hope we can return one day!
