We are an Anglo-Dutch family who bought this property from an important Italian family in Genova. We set about renovating the main villa with the purpose of having a family retreat in Northern Italy that was large enough toentertain family and friends and big enough for our teenage children to bring their friends along as well. We have decorated in a modern style according to our own taste. So this is not a typical rental property with Ikea furniture. We have tried to maintain the characteristic design of the house but give it a modern look and feel.

Martin de Koning purchased this chateau / country house in 2010

Our property was previously owned by an important family from Genova for close to a hundred years. It attracted us because it is ideally located near the Mediterranean and is close to several interesting towns with airports: Genova, Torino, Nice (France) and Milano.

The property is easily accessible, ( a practically level 75 meter drive from the nearby tarmac road), close to the nearby town of Cairo Montenotte for shopping purposes and only a 12-minute drive to the motorway. It is tranquil with lovely views but you do not have to go very far to be part of the bustling Italian action.

Corporate Event March 2013

I recently organised a corporate event for a client using this house as the venue. The facilities were excellent and the house really provided a special setting where we could work and relax together.

We were all impressed by the high standard of the recent refurbishment and all resolved to try and revisit the property during the summer so that we could also enjoy the pool, it looked inviting even when it was surrounded by snow!

We held a cooking competition one evening and the huge kitchen enabled everyone to work at the same time.

In summary we found the house to be to a high standard, spotlessly clean and the owners very happy to help us.

Great family holiday

My family spent a great 10 days in this villa in north Italy. The villa is extremely well equiped, well maintained and it provides facilities for the whole family. The swimming pool, where we spent most of our time, is large with a spacious area for sunbathing. The kitchen is brilliant for big groups with a large table and enough cookers and ovens to prepare meals for a numerous family. The tennis court also provided us with a good alternative activity. I would definitely recommend tihis property.
Owner's Response: Joe and his guests needed three baby cots which we provided for them. They also recommended some fly screens for the kitchen which we have installed. Joe and his family intend to return. We look forward to seeing them again.

Ideal Italian Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 23, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
We are from Florida and probably are a bit spoiled by our local vacation options. However, on a recent trip to Liguria we stayed for a week at this villa and were not disappointed. The temperature in late May was a perfect 75F in the day and at 1200 feet above sea level the home is at the perfect elevation for light breezes, blazing sun and incredible views of a valley that leads a few km down the hill to the local village.
We spent most of our time sipping wine, reading, swimming and taking in the view of the garden, fields, forests and valley before us. My girlfriend remarked after a week that we didn't feel or see a bug or mosquito during out stay. We slept with the windows of the house open at night. The property was quiet which was another plus for us. The pool has a new solar system that kept the pool warm enough to swim, even at night. The tennis court is also looked new and was surfaced with clay. We played tennis every day of our stay. The house even came with tennis rackets and a few cans of tennis balls. I spent some time riding a bike the owner provided along the enormous driveway occassionally waiving at the local farmers who gathered hay from the fields. For us this place is heaven. Every day we went into the nearby village of Cairo-Montenotte and got fresh bread and enjoyed splendid meals at night. I liked going to "Guidas" for local flavor. The owner was friendly and didn't mind my broken Italian. The locals were nice and helped us several times with directions. The estate itself is as described but it did have some extras we didn't expect The owner must love music because the stereo has a tube amplifier and a turntable with albums of various types. The library is well stocked with books. The house itself is well furnished and the kitchen allows meals for over a dozen. The property is was larger than we expected and we took walks around the estate and came upon an old winery and a vinyard used long ago. It was special imagining the wine house and vinyard in full operation a cenury ago. We will be back next year.

great holidays in Liguria

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 31, 2011
  • Stayed: Oct 2011
we were a group of 6 adults and 8 children (age 11 to 16), we spent a week in October (15-22) in the property. Although we tried swimming in the pool, we found it too cold unfortunately (12°c...) but all the rest was perfect ! clean and modern rooms with nice bathrooms. an enormous kitchen with a great atmosphere. we spent some really nice moments in it and in the living room.
we played a lot of tennis and tasted a lot of wine - most of it not that incredible, one must admit, but some nice suprises thanks to the small oenoteca in cairo montenotte. I can also recommend the casa del caffe in cairo - worth visiting - fantastic coffee.
we visited alba (truffles'market - interesting but very crowded - black truffles not worth the price ...), genova (the old city), savona (the market) and the sea side (plenty of beaches between savona and genova) - the sea was warm enough to bathe.
one must admit that the house is a little isolated, but full of charm (partly because of its isolation) and very modern.
I can only recommend this property - one can see that it was renovated by people who love it, who are under the charm of this region of Italy and who enjoy life.
the owners were very helpful and kind.
pictures are completely accurate, no hidden surprises...)

Owner's Response: Thanks Marc for the accurate review. Please come back in the Summer to swim in the pool when the water's warmer.

Best,

Martin

The property lies in a hilly region and offers lovely panoramas of rolling hills but is a mere 4 minutes drive to the centre of the small town of Cairo Montenotte. The surrounding villages have delightful historic centres. There are several towns within a 30 minute to a two-hour drive that merit a visit including Savona, Acqui Terme, Barolo, Torino, Genova, Milano or Nice in France. The nearest town to Cairo M. is Savona which is a mere 25 minutes drive on the Mediterranean coast. From there you can follow the coast west in the direction of France or in the other direction to Genova. In either case a delightful coastal road takes you through small towns and villages which in the Summer become bathing resorts. Typically, these communities have small public beaches as wel as private beaches. To the North is the Piedmonte region, famous for its wines (e.g. Barolo) and excellent food. Torino, an old university town and home to Fiat, is worth a visit as is Milano at a distance of 180 km.
