Dolcedo Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps up to 9

A large rustic village house, dating from the 17th Century, renovated to the highest standard, with luxurious facilities and large private infinity swimming pool. The property boasts fantastic panoramic views over green olive valleys down to the sea.

Facilities include WiFi broadband internet access, Apple iMac computer, HD Satellite UK and European channels, home cinema system with Apple TV film library and film rental, washing machine, dish washer, alfresco dining area, full gamesroom with full size American Pool table, large screen TV, Wii games console, and classic pub video game table with Jukebox faciliy. A Private garage is available for guest use, luxury sunbeds, roof terrace with amazing views, and a full landscaped terraced garden.

The garden has a child safe gated lower terrace with Playground including playhouse, slide and climing wall.

A high chair, cot and stair gates provided.

Four luxury bedrooms, 2 doubles and 2 twins sleeping up to 8 adults. 3 bathrooms including Jacuzzi plus poolside toilet/changing room & shower. There is an additional bed available on request for the larger twin room, ideal for children sharing the room.

The ancient village of Dolcedo is within walking distance with restaurants, shops, bank, chemist etc. The beach is 10 mins drive from Dolcedo, as is the town of Imperia and a large supermarket.

Airports: Nice is technically the nearest airport - just over an hours drive. Genoa (Genova) airport is also very close - 1.5 hours drive. Turin airport is also within easy reach at approximately 2.5 hours drive.

The swimming pool is a salt water pool (only a tenth as salty as the sea!) which generates its own chlorine as needed, hence having a much lower chlorine level than normal pools. On reacting with bacteria the chlorine turns back to salt. The pool is therefore ecologically friendly, and is far better in smell, taste and on the eyes than a normal chlorine pool. The pool is large (4.5m by 11.5m) - 1m deep in the shallow end and 1.8m in the deep end. A diving board enhances the pool. The pool is located on the top terrace to benefit from the panoramic views. Luxury sunbeds and and bar tables are also provided, and there is a toilet/changing room and outside shower, plus shade offered by olive trees.

The mid terrace is landscaped with fruit trees etc.

An alfresco dining area in shade of olive trees and BBQ area are located on the child friendly lower terrace (fenced/gates on exits) with Children's Playground and access to house.

Games Room and Comfortable Lounge: A luxury games room including a high quality full size American Pool table, 2 player cocktail style arcade game featuring around 100 favorite games including Space Invaders, Galaxians, Pacman etc. and a Jukebox facility, plus a Nintendo Wii games console with many games. In addition, there is comfortable seating, large screen satellite TV (European and UK), plus beer/wine fridge.

The light and airy main lounge includes large high definition (fullHD) screen, UK and European satellite (including BBC HD and ITV HD services) with the possibility to record programmes for later viewing, home cinema system Apple TV system with a film and music library and the possibility to rent the latest films. The lounge also has board games, comfortable sofas, ambient lighting and access to the kitchen and dining room and garden. This level also contains a large screen iMac computer with high speed broadband internet access. The internet is also accessable via WiFi if guests wish to use their own laptops, iPhones etc.

A beautiful house in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5
The description of the property was very accurate. It is gorgeous and beautifully equipped. The outside areas are wonderful - the pool was lovely and warm , the terrace for outside dining was wonderfully cool under the "sail shade". The village of Dolcedo was so pretty and much bigger than we were expecting and has several restaurants and bars within walking distance. The drive to the coast was easy and took about 15 minutes where there were many beautiful beaches. Rob the owner and Silvia the house manager couldn't have been more helpful and we would highly recommend this property.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We were four adults and five children, and it is a perfect number to fill this large, stunning and picturesque house. The house is cozy but also functional.
We enjoyed the stunning views. The pool area is perfect for swimming and playing. Dolcedo village offers the best of Italy - cafés, restaurants and shops.

A relaxing and comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5
The Villa overlooks a steep sided valley with views towards the south of Dolcedo. We had an extremely relaxing time at the Villa. The property was extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean and well appointed including excellent guides to the house and the area.

Ultimate Villa Rental

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for best in class service, highest quality build and tranquil environment, this is it!
The Villa is of outstanding quality with love to every detail. From the materials chosen throughout to the use of technology. There is nothing missing whatsoever. Even the movies are already loaded on Apple TV.
The outdoor area is most amazing with different levels that have their own character. The pool is massive and naturally salted with just a hint of salt that is hardly recognizable and a treat for body and soul. A bathroom is provided by the pool area as well and we comfortably spent days by the pool.
The service and response time of the landlord is without comparison. Requests where addressed within minutes.
The location is sensational with magnificent views from all outdoor areas and the terrace on the top floor. At the same time full privacy is provided throughout. During the one rainy day we experienced, time can be spent playing pool billiard and games inside the house.
We spent 11 days in Dolcedo and loved every minute. We can highly recommend this Villa as top of the range. There was absolutely nothing missing to make our stay most memorable. We like to thank Rob and Jane for the love they put into this property and the outstanding service we received.

We had a totally relaxing week in this beautiful house, barely managing to drag ourselves away from the lovely pool to go to the beach! The house was extremely well equipped with all the mod cons and extensive instructions. The owner was very friendly and helpful, dealing with all our quirky requests happily. I would definitely recommend this property to friends.

Relaxation in the Sun

  • 4 of 5
I have just returned from spending a week with my family and friends, where we had a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday by the pool and on the beach.

The house is perched on a hill over looking the Ligurian coast, conveniently located for the beach, we we spent alternate days.

The rest of our time was spent lazing by and in the beautiful pool, that was so warm that the children literally spent all day in the water.

The house is well equipped with enough technology to content the most avid technophile, and enough bathrooms to cope with our number.

My only cautionary note would be to people with walking difficulty, as the house is over 4 floors and the location is perched in the hills.

I would recommend the house thoroughly
