Casa La Torre - Liguria
Indulge yourself with a stay in this very exclusive location in Santo Stefano al Mare, Liguria Italy: an ancient tower from 1550, used back then as a sight tower to defend the Ligurian coast. This historical monument has been carefully renovated, preserving its original architecture (1m thick walls), and reformed into a self-catering holiday home at the Italian Riviera.
The tower is structured on 3 floors and can accommodate up to 6 people: enter the main floor in the living room with a double sofa-bed, dining table, TV, small kitchen and bathroom with little bathtub/shower. On the first floor is an air conditioned lounge with an open fireplace, couches, working desk and ADSL internet. A sliding door separates the bedroom with small double bed (140 cm) and toilet. On a mezzanine floor overlooking the lounge area are 2 single beds for children. Following all the way up the steep stairs is a breathtaking terrace with outdoor table and deckchairs. Sit down, relax and enjoy the panoramic view over the area and the sea: Panorama 1, Panorama 2, Panorama 3, Panorama 4, Panorama 5
Casa la Torre is situated next to the beach at the port of Aregai nearby the charming little village of Santo Stefano al Mare (2 km) with shops, cafés and restaurants. Close by are the towns of Imperia and San Remo. The border with France is only 50 km away; visiting Monaco, Nice and Genova are easy one-day trips. There is a beautiful walking/cycling path (website Area24) that passes by the tower and runs along the coast from San Lorenzo to beyond San Remo allowing great views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Before booking please note that this is not a luxury property: the tower is an extraordinary home with unique features but also with many practical disadvantages. It's a historical property with basic interiors in a seafront position. That's the charm of this place. Please read carefully the notes below in the rental conditions.
