Great time at Casa Fontana
Wow was our first impression. We went with two families of 4 (4 adults and 4 kids).
We were met by Marco who welcomed us and was extremely helpful. The house was very well equipped and comfortable with plenty of space. It had a quirky and very authentic feel to it and felt like at home more or less straight away. There were very few tourists and the local people were extremely warm and friendly and actually invited us all to their bi annual meal and drinks at the local chapel courtyard. The village of Dolcedo is felt like we were in a fairy tale with awesome view and real authenticity. Plenty to see and visit in the area and only an hour's drive Monaco. A car is essential and parking was difficult but happy to live with this. We would definitely recommend booking this place. Enjoy!!!!
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!
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.
Our week in Dolcedo
It's a great house with lots of room and a beautifull furnished kitchen. The roofterras is the best!
And you can eat all you want if you walk to the little shop every day to buy panini's.
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.
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.
A Wonderful Holiday at Casa Fontana!
We spent 1 week at Casa Fontana in Dolcedo and had a wonderful time! The house is very spacious and incredibly comfortable. The property was very clean and well maintained...the house-keeper even had a fire in the firepace going when we arrived in case we were chilly.We were there with 2 couples and had so much room and privacy, but there is also room for 3 or 4 couples or a large family comfortably. The house has 2 lovely fireplaces and the bathrooms were beautiful...3 bathrooms in the house and 2 showers.The terrace was private and we enjoyed the fantastic views and the sunshine. There is so much to do in the immediate area, and we recommend a visit any time. Our experience with this house rental and the owners was perfect for us and we were thrilled......it surpassed all of our expectations.........we had a terrific holiday!!!!
P.S. The village of Valloria is a place we visited during our week...it is an AMAZING village up in the mountains...only a 15 minute drive from the house.....the town is magical...every door has been painted by a known artist and it is quite a spectacular adventure to seek them all out...also...we ate what we all agreed was the absolute best meal of our lives at a tiny local restaurant in Valloria called "La Porta Dei Sapori". A MUST if you are visiting the area.
