Cottage in a natural oasis by the river


For nature lovers and dropouts, this small, solid stone cottage offers absolute tranquillity and privacy in the middle of nature. Surrounded by its own large plot of land, it is situated only a few metres above the Acquasanta stream with its natural bathing pools, where you can refresh yourself in the hot summer months.

Here in Imperia's hinterland, only 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the Italian Riviera coast, you will find an oasis offering unobstructed views of the evergreen, still unspoilt valley, down to the sea and the old town of Porto Maurizio, whose cathedral can be seen illuminated at night.

Bright rooms with minimalist furnishings lead onto various terraces where life in summer takes place outdoors. Thanks to its south-west exposure, it is sunny all day. But you can also find shady places to sit, for example under a pergola with vines.

The cottage can only be reached on foot from the other side of the river, with a quite sporty ascent and descent. The well-kept property on the hillside with a small pond has been terraced with many dry stone walls and offers numerous landscaping possibilities and a variety of plants.
