Overview

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.

Great location. Great walking in the hills

  • 5 of 5
A very good location for walks to the hill villages around Imperia and for a short drive to the coast. The terraces of the house, with great views across the valley, and the swimming pool add to the comfort and amenities of this well modernised old stone village house. Highly recommended

A wonderful week at this villa

  • 5 of 5
'We spent a wonderful week at this villa. It is a truly authentic Italian experience, located in a medieval village in a beautiful part of Italy. Inside it has been updated to include all 21st century necessities, Wifi, plasma tv, British channels, computer, and a great games room - my boys particularly loved the space invaders table! The pool is fantastic, with a beautiful view over the olive terraced hills down to the Med. We sampled 3 of the restaurants in the village and were very happy with all of them. We loved the bike ride along the coastal cycle path (it goes all the way to San Remo although we didn't get that far with kids in tow. Would recommend going first thing as car park at the hire place gets busy later). There are lots of day trips, Monte Carlo, Nice, Genoa, and beaches are close by, but we found it difficult to leave the pool and the view! A week wasn't enough and we hope to return. '

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Very very well maintained and appointed property up in the hills behind Imperia. An easy drive from Nice.

Nothing at all missing from the house (its a real home) and all needs have been catered for including novel iphone/pad chargers hanging from the TV room walls, wifi and a working Imac.

The TV, Apple TV facility, vintage arcade machine (galaxians top score remains 5400) and pool table are very useful if it rains and for early evening fun.

With 61 steps up from front door to pool you need to be fit, but if you can carry your beer this far then its a good choice for a quiet get away.

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.
