Description from owner


Perched on the upper ridge of the charming hill town of Apricale, this villa has been fully restored and equipped for the ideal Mediterranean holiday. With breathtaking poolside views of the Val Nervia and surrounding villages, the villa offers high quality living with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen and two separate living rooms split over three levels.

The village of Apricale is stunningly well-preserved, featuring some of the region's finest restaurants. Located near the French border only 30 minutes from the coast, it is ideally placed for a swim at the beach at Bordighera or the fresh water pools of Rocchetta Nervina. Ideal for hiking, mountain biking and excursions into the French Riviera, Apricale offers a tranquil, uncrowded alternative to a welcome break on the med, just over an hour's drive from Nice airport.

Response from the owner Great to read your comments Brian, and delighted you enjoyed your stay so much. We actually prefer the kitchen in Apricale to the one at home, something about the vibe that makes it fun to cook there!
