Lovely italian atmosphere in Dolcedo

We had a great time at Casa Fontana in Dolcedo/Isalolunga. It's a beautiful big house, with a great roof terrace, where you can see the whole area and towards the sea. Dolcedo is a lovely small town with cosy restaurants and a beautiful Church. Imperia is also a nice town 6 km away with great beaches. Sometimes difficult to find a parking lot, but you get used to it. You can also easily take the bus 500 meters from the house towards the town. THANK YOU! We'll be back!
Owner's Response: Thanks to our Norwegian guests, we look forward to your next visit. Takket være våre norske gjester, ser vi frem til ditt neste besøk.

This is a great property! The house was wonderful...full of character and very comfortable. The old village of Dolcedo is a perfect place to begin exploring the region. We were able to relax as well as set out on daily adventures. The owners were especially helpful in making sure we were ready for our vacation. The house was exactly as advertised and more. Highly recommend this for anyone looking to get away to some peace and quiet, or have a great staging place to explore the Italian and French Riviera's.

A lovely place to stay

Our family wanted to find a quiet "homelike" place to stay near the Italian Rivera. Casa Fontana in Dolcedo was the perfect place for us. We stayed only four full days & wished we could have stayed longer. The house was wonderful, lots of space, very clean & situated with a view of the sea. We greatly appreciated the location map, the notebook filled with brochures & information about the area, and of course, the bottle of Italian wine on the family table with fresh flowers in several places. We ate our meals on the private terrace overlooking the sea, although there was a huge kitchen and family room also available. We greatly appreciated basic condiments also being made available. The caretaker was very helpful, giving us his cell number should we need to make reservations or need his assistance in finding a recommended restaurant. We finally got to eat a wonderful meal at the "horse stable restaurant". Eating at a couple of the smaller family restaurants was also a great experience, especially knowing that the salad ingredients came from the owner's garden. Exploring Dolcedo was a highlight. A quiet little town with some impressive historical buildings, churches, bridges & meandering walkways. Not surprising, we even found a big olive oil business which was closed. But the one we really enjoyed was Pietrantica's little olive shop, just down from the city offices and across from the bank. Pietrantica has his own olive grove, presses his own oil & exports some to the USA. From Casa Fontana we took a daytrip up the west side of the valley & returned on the east side. We visited each of the picturesque towns, including Valloria, which is a must if you come to this area. We also took another day trip south along the sea to France. We found some wonderful Italian porceline grottos in Albissola Marina on the way back. Our only challenge on this trip was negotiating the narrow, windy roads. The drive up to Casa Fontana is such a road, but well worth the effort. From there it is an enjoyable walk to the main part of town. If you come to this area, this is the place to stay. Although we spent a lot of time away from Casa Fontana, it was the perfect place to return for the afternoon siesta & evenings together. It was our "home away from home" where we had absolutely quiet evenings & experienced a unique sense of history just from being there. It will definitely be our first choice on any return visit & we highly recommend it for your consideration.

An incredible vacation!

I would have to rate my time in this apartment as a 5 for excellent. Right from the beginning, upon requesting information, I immediately contacted and was very happy with the way Herr Bormann answered my questions and showed an interest in the needs of me and my family. The care taker of the vacation home was also very friendly and answered all of our questions, even recommending great restaurants in the area. We were, however, surprised at the drive up to the vacation home. Very steep, windy, and steep. But, it was worth it! The view from the top floor balcony is splendid. We ate breakfast there every morning. Dolcedo is in itself, in my opinion, the most beautiful village in the valley. We made a driving loop up the valley and down the other visiting the many small villages and admiring the breathtaking view of the mountains and the sea. Our favorite was Valloria, where the doors are painted by artists and where one can get lost roaming on the windy, narrow pathways through the town. It was a great experience and I would definately recommend this vacation home and it's surroundings to anyone looking for a peaceful, romantic, and memorable holiday.

Owner's Response: The last part of the way to Isolalunga is relatively steep for 500m/550yd, but that s normal for Italien mountain villages.However there will be an new , more comfortable road from autumn 08.

Notes:
Casa Fontana is a rustical ligurian stone house on three floors with a rooftop terrace. Small plazas and a winding alley leading to the house provide a safe and fun place for children to play (parking spaces are located 100-250 M from the house). The walls of the house are 500 years old but the interior was completely renovated in 2002. Arched entryways, fluted ceilings ,fireplaces, iron windows, 2 baths, kitchen and a guest bath combine historical flair and modern comfort. The two separate apartments can be connected by a staircase into one big unit. The small apartment is furnished for three persons: one living/sleeping room, kitchenette and bathroom with shower and toilet. The bigger apartment on the first and second floor has two sleeping rooms with 5 beds, a bathroom, a second separate WC and a large kitchen/living room with sofa bed. The kitchen/living room is furnished for 10 people, from here you reach the rooftop terrace by a spiral staircase. Internet access on demand.
