Un village absolument charmant, une maison adorable et très bien équipée.

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons loué la maison de Molini di Triora, au départ, pour la région. Arrivés au village, dans un premier temps, nous avons eu un peu peur d'être (trop) isolés, à la fois dans ce village très éloigné de la côte et dans cette maison tout en haut du village. Mais nous avons très vite été séduits par la maison, mignonne comme tout, très fraiche, très bien agencée en demis-étages et super bien équipée, notamment pour la cuisine ! Nous avons vite réalisé que nous étions à 5 minutes à pied du cœur du village, et aussi de notre cher "laghetto", ce petit plan d'eau qui permet si facilement d'aller se baigner et nager dans une eau pure et un cadre magnifique. Idéal après une rando ! Nous avons adoré le village de Molini, très pittoresque, authentique, et vivant. Et nous avons adoré aussi Triora, le village juste au-dessus. Quant à la région, elle regorge de balades. Toute la documentation nécessaire est disponible dans la maison pour passer un super séjour.

Car: recommended


The coast is 30 minutes away by car and an hour by bus. The beaches are sandy and suitable for children. They are supervised by lifeguards.


Nice airport is the nearest (90 minutes drive) and Genoa is a little further away at 2 hours drive. There is a regular train service from both Nice and Genoa to Arma di Taggia on the coast from where a bus can be caught to the village. However, we would recommend a car in order to explore the beautiful hinterland.


The house is located at the top of the village where a car can be parked. It takes two minutes to walk down into the centre of the village where you will find shops, bars, restaurant, post office, ATM, pharmacy, gymnasium, tennis court. There is a natural river swimming pool in the village. Nearby villages of Corte, Andagna and Triora offer short walks with spectacular views.

Further Details:

There is a hotel with restaurant and 4 bars in the village. There are 2 general shops where you can buy all you need, as well as a good butcher and baker. There is also a chemist. You can withdraw cash from a 'hole in the wall' and there is a bank facility once a week.

Supermarket shopping is available on the coast. Arma di Taggia and San Remo offer weekly markets for local produce. San Remo also offers designer shopping and a casino and marina. Local eateries are excellent and reasonably priced. Most produce is locally grown.

All the local villages have festivals or 'sagre'. Molini's is in September and celebrates the local delicacy of snails! Also in September is the mushroom festival in Triora. Badalucco celebrates the bean! There is a locally run 'ramblers group' in the summer months and also mountain biking trails. You can also book guided walks with an English (local) guide at There is also rock climbing, mountain pool swimming (complete with waterfalls). Pony trekking is available in Dolcedo, details of which are in the house information book.
