Description By The Vendor
Casa Villatalla was built by the current owners 12 years ago and is set in the peaceful setting of the Ligurian hills. It is situated so as to maximise the stunning views of the wooded hillsides and to benefit from the sun throughout the year.

The current owners wish to retire which led them to the decision to sell Casa Villatalla and move to the UK.

The tranquil setting is perfect for those wishing to relax and rid themselves of the tensions of day to day life but can still access the pleasures of todays living.

Villatalla is only 6km from the medieval town of Dolceacqua, which provides local shopping, cafés and restaurants. The larger seaside towns of Bordighera and Ventimiglia are 18km and 14km (25 and 20 mins) from the house. The popular seafront in Bordighera has beach side parking and wonderful restaurants overlooking clean beaches and the sparkling Mediterranean Sea. They afford views along the coast to Menton (in France) and the Hanbury Botanical Gardens.

From both Bordighera and Ventimiglia you can catch a coast line train to Genoa – a journey of approximately 2 hours of spectacular sea views.

Nice Airport, the second largest in France, is about 50 minutes away by car along the motorway which runs through the hillside and in places overlooks the sea.

The region of Liguria was very popular with the Milanesi at the turn of the 20th Century, who like their French counterparts, would winter in the mild climate of its seaside towns. Queen Victoria was built a holiday retreat in Menton and this made the area popular with the British, which still remains today. The faded glory of those grand days can still be seen in the stately architecture along the sea front.

Around the house there are the medieval villages of Rocchetta Nervina, Isolabona and Apricale and the already mentioned Dolceacqua. The terraced hillsides, created centuries ago, are still very visible today and continue to provide produce for the local area (mainly olives and grapes).

This location caters for everyones tastes, being close to the sea, skiing at Limone Piemonte and Monesi 1.5 hours away, the renowned Hanbury Botanical Gardens, and casinos in Menton, Monaco and Nice (30-50 minutes away). Also easily accessible are the other towns and villages of the Cote dAzur, and Sanremo where there is fashionable shopping and a variety of eating places. Beautiful Menton also has the prestigious Jean Cocteau Museum.

For walkers there is an abundance of hillside walking and for those looking for something longer, 5 minutes away at the top of the hill above the house there is the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri, the 440km walking trail from Ventimiglia to La Spezia Also, 1 1/4 hours away, there is Colle Melosa with access to the trail the “Sentiero degli Alpini”. About the same driving time takes you to the Parc National du Mercantour, a totally unspoilt and absolutely stunning, huge landscape where there are 40,000 rock engravings
