Charming apartment in an ancient tower with a rooftop terrace


A touch of history surrounds this apartment in an ancient 17th-century Saracen tower, located in the quiet hamlet of Bellissimi. Skillfully restored and furnished with antique furniture, a very special ambiance has been created here.

Ancient fireplaces, wooden beams, handmade terracotta tiles, and a vaulted ceiling made of tufa bricks contribute to the unique atmosphere. Its rooftop terrace invites you to enjoy the mild climate and panoramic views over mountains and valleys down to the coast.

Dolcedo, the main village of the Prino Valley with its small shops, café-bars, and restaurants, is about 3 km away and can also be reached on foot in a few minutes. The nearest beaches are in Imperia, about 10 km away.

Upon request, the apartment can be purchased furnished.



The apartment is located on the 1st floor of the oldest building in Bellissimi, a former watchtower, built to protect against pirate attacks. It offers a living area of approx. 60 sqm net. Thick and robust walls, slate stairs, and intricate architecture testify to the building's historic past.

Right after the entrance on the first floor, you enter the living room, which features an imposing high brick vaulted ceiling, handmade terracotta tiles, a fireplace, and a kitchenette. In addition to a terrace of about 8 sqm with marvelous panoramic views of the Prino Valley, there is also a bedroom with an open fireplace, a storage room with a washing machine, and a spacious Moroccan-style bathroom.



The property is located in a small alley in the middle of Bellissimi, one of the most picturesque hamlets in the Prino Valley, surrounded by olive groves, with a friendly village community. Public parking can be found a few meters away on the main road.

Several hiking and mountain bike trails lead directly from Bellissimi, e.g. to small bathing ponds of the river in Acquasanta and the Monte Faudos region.
