The medieval mountain village Montalto Ligure, situated between Sanremo and Imperia and a 15 minutes drive away from the sea, occupies a stunning location on a ridge with views over the Martime Alps. The nearest village Badalucco is 2 km away and the beautiful beaches of Arma di Taggia are some 10 km down the road. Montalto itself has a food shop to cover the daily needs, a small post office and a bar. The local Osteria serves excellent local cuisine. A number of hiking tracks start right in the village and invite to explore the surrounding olive groves and woodland all the way up to Monte Ceppo and Monte Faudo. A 10 minutes walk along a former donkey trail, leads to a stunning natural bathing pool in the river.
The lovingly renovated house dates back to the year 1200, when it served as a watchtower for the old Castello. All rooms feature beautiful vaulted ceilings and the genuinely original slate stairs so typical for this area, are still in place. Thanks to the arched windows, all rooms are bright and flooded with light. The overall 120 qm living space is split over 4 floor levels and provides 4 bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a family bathroom. The 30 qm sunny roof terrace with summer kitchen is a particularly attractive feature. Climbing vine grows up over all four floors and produces delicious grapes and pleasant shade to sit under. The terrace enjoys stunning views over the rooftops and the surrounding mountains. A romantic and peaceful place to enjoy eating al fresco or simply relax. The house is fitted with a contemporary central heating system fed by communal gas and the open fireplace in the living room further provides comfort and warmth.
