Relaxed holiday at lovely country house

  • 5 of 5

A warm welcome by Fulvio, Ornella and Federica at their lovely country house.

We -family with 4 teenagers - enjoyed the calmness of the house and little village, de splendid terrace with outdoor kitchen, with view on the mountains and the charm of decorated house. Excellent for trips to the 'riviera dei fiori' by car or bicycle.

A wonderful relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Moano. The house is beautifully kept in an authentic style and very well kept. in the mornings we enjoyed having breakfast on the sunny terrace. A special highlight for the whole family was the wood burning pizza oven on the terrace. We had a great time making pizzas that with great certainty because of the oven turn out to be delicious.

The house is tucked away in beautiful and quiet mountain settings, with a small village with shops and cafe, pizzaria etc. about 10 min drive away.

We made daily trips to the coast as well as two trips to the water park in Ceriale, which the kids loved.

The host family was wonderfully helpful. As traffic on the route from Germany had delayed us, we arrived late and after dark. Our host was very helpful and met us in Pieve di Teco to make sure that we found our way. The welcome at the house was beyond anything that we could have expected. We could not have felt more welcome. Throughout out stay the host family was very helpful, but only present if on our request.

We had a wonderful vacation. Thank you Federica, Ornella and Fulvio.

Our great holliday in Moano

  • 5 of 5

The house at Monao is really wonderful. It was even better than the description let us suppose. It was well kept and originally furnitured at the inside, but on the outside we spent nice mornings having breakfeast on the liitle terras and great evenings at the pizza kitchen. The personalised reception and service of the owner was far beyond our greatest expectations.

We enjoyed the green and destressing environment of Moano and from the house every day we made an excursion (half an hour drive) to one ore antoher place at the Ligurian Coast. Albenga seemed to become our favorite.

We surely would recommend this place to everyone that likes the nature and the great sight on the mountains but also likes to be not so far from the coast.

For the daily shopping the town of Pieve di Teco is only 10 minutes away.

We hope to come back here

Moano ist purer Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Das freistehende Haus in ca. 550 m ü. NN bietet für die ganze Familie reichlich Platz und

es fehlt an nichts. Die Terrasse und auch der Garten laden zum Verweilen ein - der Pizzaofen funktioniert einwandfrei und dank Fulvio ist auch mehr als genug Holz zum

Anheizen und auch für den Grill vorhanden. Alle Zimmer sind liebevoll eingerichtet und

sauber. Im Wohnzimmer ist auch TV eingerichtet (nat. italienische Programme).

Ausflüge sind von hier gut zu starten. Einzig die engen Straßen von Pieve de Teco nach Moano sind ein bisschen gewöhnungsbedürftig.

Die Nachbarn sind sehr freundlich und man ist inmitten der Natur - alles grün -

ideal zum Entschleunigen.

Von hier aus ist es auch kein Problem, mal eben nach Nizza zu fahren - aber am

besten mit dem Zug, vielleicht von Ventimiglia. Hier als Tipp keine Hin und Rückfahrkarte in Italien kaufen. Die Rückfahrkarte in Nizza ist bald 50% günstiger.

Den Grund haben wir nicht erfahren....

Alles in allem ein schöner, erholsamer Urlaub mit vielen Möglichkeiten zum Besichtigen und erforschen (Wanderungen) und nochmals einen ganz lieben

Dank an unsere Vermieter Fulvio und Federica

Wunderschönes Domizil in einem ligurischen Bergdorf

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist liebevoll und in rustikalem Stil eingerichtet und es fehlt wirklich an nichts... Hervorzuheben ist insbesondere der tolle Außenbereich mit dem Pizza-Ofen und der heißen Platte zum Grillen. Die Vermieter sind supernett und hilfsbereit und wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. In Pieve di Teco (ca. 7 min. mit dem Auto) sind zahlreiche Geschäfte und der Ort an sich hat ebenfalls viel Charme. Das Haus liegt in Vorort Moano auf dem Berg und hier kann man direkt loswandern oder die Gegend mit dem Fahrrad erkunden (vorhanden), zum Meer sind es ca. 30 min Fahrt. Gebadet haben wir aber lieber in einem kleinen Gebirgsbach-Tümpel (glasklares Wasser) im Wald der vom Haus in ca. 15 min zu Fuß erreichbar und von absoluter Einsamkeit geprägt ist. Alles in allem ein wunderschöner Urlaub mit tollen Vermietern. Hinweis jedoch - die Straße zum Haus ist eng (mit meinem großen Van aber auch machbar gewesen) und Parken schwierig. Ich selbst habe an der Kirche geparkt.. Waren ein paar Meter zu Fuß aber stressfreier..
