About Martin de Koning
We are an Anglo-Dutch family who bought this property from an important Italian family in Genova. We set about renovating the main villa with the purpose of having a family retreat in Northern Italy that was large enough to entertain family and friends and big enough for our teenage children to bring their friends along as well. We have decorated in a modern style according to our own taste. So this is not a typical rental property with Ikea furniture. We have tried to maintain the characteristic design of the house but give it a contemporary look and feel.
Martin de Koning purchased this villa in 2010
Why Martin de Koning chose Cairo Montenotte
Because it is ideally located near the Mediterranean Sea and is close to several interesting towns with airports: Genova, Torino, Nice (France) and Milano. The small town of Cairo Montenotte is only a three-minute drive from the house where you find shops and restaurants (and even a hospital). With its medieval center and the locals chatting unhurriedly with one another, this is the unpretentious vita bella of Italy without tourists. There is plenty of room for guests to each do their own thing whether you want to hang at the pool, play tennis, go hiking, go mountain biking or read a book in the shade under the oak trees.
What makes this villa unique
The property is easily accessible, ( a practically level 75 meter drive on a dirt road from the nearby tarmac road), close to the nearby town of Cairo Montenotte for shopping purposes and only a 12-minute drive to the motorway. It is tranquil with lovely views but you do not have to go very far to be part of the bustling Italian action along the coast. For families with children it offers plenty of entertainment with a large pool, a tennis court, a ping pong table and mountain bikes.
