The picturesque medieval mountain village of Montegrazie overlooks the ancient landscapes of the Ligurian Alps region a few miles inland from the sea. The town’s jumble of homes and ancient church are huddled together with this villa for rent perched above the rooftops.
The ground floor’s ancient vaulted interiors are composed of stone and polished concrete and include a well-equipped kitchen and a large, open dining area that invites convivial meals overlooking the views and direct access to the Mediterranean gardens.
The free-standing staircase leads to the the modern living room with vaulted ceilings, and two light-flooded double bedrooms with enchanting sea views.
Towards the back is another double bedroom and a single room, which can also be used as a study.
From both rooms you can step directly onto the sun roof terrace and a shaded loggia – the perfect place to enjoy a meal or aperitif in the sun.
Through the back exit of the house is a small piazza that immediately immerses you into village life.
Wifi throughout, kitchen and bath amenities, laundry facilities. The house is located in the middle of the village and therefore cannot be reached directly with a car. The footpath from the parking lot to the car is about 100m and is uphill.
