The elegance of this home is all in its comfortable simplicity.

About elisa sertorio

the house, dating back to the XVI century, is completely restored with care and love for the past. A job lasted five years, meeting all kinds of difficulties... the opportunity to publish the pictures you just saw, is a source of pride and great satisfaction for my husband and our two children but especially for me, I confess. The project was so exciting to inducing me - executive in a big company - to radically change my working life. A good result I think, but what an effort! I worked hard to get it, but now the dream of my life is reality. I love so much this place, (I got married here, in the family castle that you see on left ), than I have shifted a bit of my passion into the home walls . Hope you feel what I mean if you stay here some days!

Charming house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at La Maclura. Lovely Elisa was there to welcome us ( even though it was after midnight) and was on hand to offer information if we needed her . The house is charming, full of character and clean and well equipped. The pool and outdoor areas are pretty and well kept. We did some walking in the area, a snorkelling trip to an island and a trip to Menton and Monaco; and Alassio is a very busy little town with great shopping and beach fun.

Highly recommended. Thankyou Elisa.

Perfect location, very well kept, great owners

  • 5 of 5

We were three families (6 adults and 4 children between 3 and 9 years) and spent a week in July in Elisa and Ricardo´s wonderful house. We really enjoyed our holidays and had a great time. The house is renovated with love, all rooms are practically furnished. At the same time you can see that the owners have a lot of taste and take care of their house. It was possible to go hiking in the area around. The swimmingpool was bigger than expected, Ricardo was cleaning it every day. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace with a view and having our dinner there. There is a big barbecue we liked to use. You can spend a lot of time in the house and garden, but it is also very easy to go down to the beach or to the small village Moglio where you can find a baker and a very delicious trattoria. I could go on with saying a lot of good things about the location. It has been a perfect holiday for us families and I can highly recommend the place. Maybe we will come back ;)

Wonderful week at Alassio

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this Villa for a week. It is in a wonderfully tranquil location and the villa looks like something from a magazine. Everything worked the way it should have, plus the pool kept the kids busy for the whole week. It was a pleasure from start to finish and we will certainly come back next year. If you are thinking of taking this villa for a week or 2, do it. You will not regret it!

authentic Italian holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely property up in the hill from Alassio. Perfect for our children. The house is really nice and the extremely hospitable hosts Elisa and Ricardo were very helpful, yet discrete. The children loved the pool and we enjoyed our meals on the terrasse overlooking the sea. The city of Alassio gives lots of opportunities, and there are several really nice authentic Italian restaurants close by the property. For us this was the perfect authentic Italian holiday. We will definitely be back!

Traumurlaub mit Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten hier eine traumhafte Ferienwoche im Hinterland von Alassio. Mit viel Liebe und gutem Geschmack wurde das ehemalige Gehöft zu einem luxuriösen und modernen Haus restauriert. Wir fühlten uns hier sofort wohl. Es fehlt an nichts, verschiedene Sitzmöglichkeiten im Freien, eine gut ausgestattete Küche, die Betten sind super bequem und die Badezimmer komfortabel und schön. Einen großen fantastischen Pool hatten wir für uns ganz alleine. Von den lieben Eigentümern Elisa und Ricardo wurden wir herzlich empfangen und bekamen tolle Tips für Strand und Restaurants. Tagsüber waren wir an den verschiedenen sehr schönen Sandstränden in Alassio und Umgebung. Jeden Tag an einem anderen Strand. Abends Barbecue auf dem Aussengrill und frische Feigen direkt vom Baum geerntet. Dazu ein Glas Rotwein und die Lichter an der Küste sehen. Was braucht man mehr im Urlaub? Und es gibt so viele Ausflugsziele: Monaco, Nizza, San Remo ... Wir kommen definitiv gerne wieder, denn es war so wunderschön! Andrea und Andy

The Perfect Place for an Extended Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place in the warm sun in Italy for a family of 4 and grandparents and this suited us perfectly. There was plenty of space inside and out, with a private swimming pool to cool down in when it got too hot. The whole place well maintained with Elisa and Riccardo discrete but nearby with solutions to any little problem and answers to all questions.

The place is up the hills a little bit with cooling breezes and magnificent views, so you need a small car - or a scooter! - to get into Alassio which had all amenities and a thriving night life. But it was nice to escape back afterwards to the peace of the villa.

5,5km from nearest beach. Over 100 bathing establishments, to choose along the coast. It is enough to consider its geographical position, the expansion of its beach, the possibility to swim from March to November, the shallow depth, the gentleness of its climate through the whole year. Alassio must be regarded as one of the best beaches in the world. The strand with its very fine grey-white dustless sand stretches over 4km to join the seaside of wonderful Laigueglia.


Airports by car. Nice (France) 113km, Genova 98km, Milano 235km. Car essential.

Further Details:

The tourist history of Alassio is closely connected to its climate. Very thorough studies have compared the climate of the picturesque bay of Alassio to that of another pearl of Italian tourism, Amalfi. In fact both the coast and hilly belt are exposed to the south, a crown of mountains protects it from the northerly winds, that is why Alassio enjoys the typical Mediterranean maritime climate which is pleasant and mild, with annual range of about 15 degrees, average winter temperature of about 10 degrees and summers refreshed by marine breezes with temperatures around 25 degrees. It is above all due to its favourable climate that Alassio, towards the end of the 18th century, became among the first Italian town to receive tourism from Europe. As time went by, the first wealthy English families who started this trend were replaced by a crowd of tourists coming from all over the world, as the latest statistics on the tourist flux show. The biggest shopping center of Liguria is the 'Budello' of Alassio, the ancient alley stretching across the whole town, parallel to the sea front. Along both sides are the best shops of the western Riviera with their latest ideas and fashions: from the most modern 'griffe', to the most precious antiques and traditional tastes. You'll find here. 24 restaurants, 10 supermarkets, 10 banks and more and more.
