We had a wonderful time in Apricale, thanks very much Lou and Inger. The house was very charming, beautifully decorated, with a quirky layout. We loved the many choices of places to sit outside, 3 terraces and a balcony, perfect for the beautiful views of the village and the hills around.
Being just outside the village was great for us, we enjoyed the short walk (5-10minutes, a bit longer to reach the square on the top of the hill!), and there are some lovely restaurants, we particularly enjoyed Ristorante Apricale da Delio.
Inge was very helpful, we had a problem with the gas for the cooker, and within a couple of hours of texting the housekeeper had arrived and sorted it out.
I would definitely recommend this place and would love to come back, thanks very much!
We truly enjoyed our stay in Lou Nelsons house in Apricale. We stayed there for a week at the end of july. The house is equipped with a parasol and several decks in shade as well as fans in the to bedrooms. This, combined with the fact that the house is made of stone, creates a cool and comfortable environment even though it's hot outside. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped. At our arrival, the house was perfectly clean and nice, there were maps, guides and tips, everything functioning. There are new and very comfortable beds in the bedrooms.
The center of town is within a 10 minute walk. Here on can buy food to cook at the house, there are also some restaurants and cafés.
The area is very beautiful and has trails for walking and other interesting villages and cities.
We can highly recommend to stay in Lou Nelsons lovely house in beautiful Apricale.

Wir haben es sehr genossen und fühlten uns sehr wohl.
Das italienisch / skandinavische Stillbewustsein traf unseren Geschmack voll und ganz. Für Paare ohne Anhang sehr zu empfehlen, falls einen die halbstündige Fahrt ans Meer nichts ausmacht.
We enjoyed our stay in the house just outside Apricale very much. The view from the three terraces is stunning. The house is very clean, comfortable and charming.
The house is conveniently located a bit outside Apricale, although parking may be a bit difficult (especially during the teatro season). The next beach (Ventimiglia) is a 30-minute ride (by car) away, stores, bars and restaurants are nearby from Apricale down to Dolceaqua.
The owners provide all necessary household goods (deckchairs, bbq, parasol) and the kitchen is well-equipped. There is also a great outdoor shower and plenty of room for luggage, bicycles etc.
Overall, the house delivers excellent value for the money, even if better beds would be a huge plus. During the summer heat some might also miss an a/c in the bedroom.
Tolle Landschaft, eindrucksvolle Landschaft, pittoreskes Dorf, Das Haus ist für Familien mit kleinen Kindern viellieicht weniger gut geeignet, aber durch die Aufteilung der Schlafräume auch für zwei Paare gut geeignet.
Es war sehr warm aber es weht eigentllich immer ein zum Teil kräftiger Wind der die Hitze erträglich macht. Super Standort um die ligurische Küste oder die Cote d`Azur zu erkunden. Auch nach Monaco ist es nicht weit! Nette Vermieter, die auch vor Ort über einen Ansprechpartner verfügen.
We enjoyed our stay in Apricale and this charming house. The bedrooms are very simple, but fresh and nice to sleep in (the beds could be better though). The kitchen is really fresh and we liked both the fantastic views and the terraces that's part of the house. Everyone who is not afraid of heights will probably like this place a lot!
Everything was absolutely perfect. Feels like being in your own holiday home!
Thank you so much and many greetings to Arturo!
