About this listing
The casetta (a little & beautiful house) is situated in the vibrant hills of Vendone. It is surrounded by mountains and trees providing an incredible panorama. At the same time it is just 15 km from the coast and the charming little town of Alassio. The casetta comprises of a small garden overlooking the hills and the antiquated watch tower, an outside cooking and eating area, a comfortable living room, a bathroom, access to a washing machine, and a loft which sleeps 4 (1 double, 2 singles). Bed linen is also supplied.
The area provides something for everybody: a choice of sandy or rocky beaches only a short drive away; little towns and villages with quaint historic centres; a chance to delve into the caves of Toirano; a nearby outdoor water park, open during the summer; hikes in the mountains with incredible unspoilt views of cliff faces, towering natural stone pillars, the sea, and the surrounding countryside; renowned rock climbing routes at Castle Bianco; or simply the opportunity to immerse yourselves in the events of the local area.
Surrounding our country home we have olive groves, fruit trees and vegetable gardens. We also have three dogs, two cats, hens, a little pig and two ducks. You are welcome to join us for lunch in our home (just 10 meters away); help to cultivate and harvest the vegetables and fruits of the gardens; accompany us to the local festivals, if they coincide with your stay, with local dishes, music and traditional dancing; walk with us in the mountains and along the coastal paths, or to just enjoy the casetta and its peaceful surroundings.
Siamo stati contentissimi della casa, del bel giardino con vista sulle colline e della sincera ospitalità di Elena e della sua famiglia. L'entroterra ligure è stata una bella sorpresa come pure la possibilità di raggiungere raidamente il mare.
Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen, Wein und Früchte standen auf dem Tisch.
Elenas Mutter hat uns sehr viele Tipps gegeben, und im Garten durfte wir alle Früchte und Kräuter ernten, was wir wollten.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl dort gefühlt, der Ausblick ist grandios.
Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt, und wir wären gerne noch länger geblieben.
Vielen, vielen Dank für Alles
Elisabeth und Michael

And id you are in to rock climbing
Finale ligure is 40min by car
And castelbianco is approximatly 20min by car.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage is very comfortable and the garden was beautiful to relax and soak up the views. Elena and her family were very gracious hosts and we made good use of the products that she gave us from her garden and it was a pleasure to have had lunch with her.
This part of Italy is a hidden gem and we were glad to have taken the opportunity to see a piece of it and will return.
For those interested in hiking you can walk up onto a marked trail (follow the red diamonds) right from the driveway as well as explore the ancient cart trails through the olive groves where you may see some deer or wild boar.
All in all a great experience.
We had a great stay at Elena`s house! Elena and her family were very nice to us and immediately taking care as there were some little issues with the heating and the shower that got solved quite fast.
The house itself is a great place for 2 persons (and in our case a dog) in the middle of nothing with beautiful possibilities to go hiking up the mountains around the village.
We will definitely go there again in case we will visit the area again.
