This lovingly renovated country house enjoys fantastic views over the Maritime Alps and the medieval town of Dolceacqua in the valley below.

An attractive property in a sunny and idyllic setting for those who appreciate rustic charm combined with the benefits of contemporary comfort. The natural stone house has approximately 105 sq.m. of living and circulation space. It is surrounded by olive groves and benefits from a sunny south/easterly orientation.

The 6,763 sq.m. terraced grounds have been mainly left in their natural state, growing beautifully mature olive trees. The fantastic views cannot be obstructed and the neighbourhood consists of well looked after country houses dotted around the area.

The nearest infrastructure is conveniently close; Dolceacqua is some 15 km away, and the coastal town of Ventimiglia is only a 20 minutes drive away. The international airport in Nice can be reached within the hour.

A well constructed communal road of which the final 500m is private (partly cement, partly forest track) connects directly with the grounds, with off street parking available for a number of vehicles.

The living space is split over three floor levels, connected by an exterior staircase. The spacious living room with kitchen and dining area is on the middle floor level. Large French windows lead out to the surrounding, partly roof covered terrace.
