This 300 year old farmhouse with solid stone walls occupies a quiet spot on the outskirts of the hamlet Poggio Bottaro, some 19 km away from the sea. It enjoys a mild climate, making it a pleasant place to live all year round. Attractive leisure activities are available literally on the doorstep with excursions into the beautiful hinterland between Ventimiglia and Genova and the sandy beaches of Alassio and Laigueglia 40 minutes down the road being just some of the options. The well-known golf course Garlenda is 14 km away and the neighbouring village Testico with its small supermarket, bar and Trattoria is only 1.2 km down the road. The nearest international airports are Nice (approx. 124 km ) and Genova (approx. 104 km).
The building was completely renovated in 1983 in keeping with the original style and fitted with new house technology, new windows and exterior doors made of solid mahogany.
Split over 3 floor levels the house offers 110 qm living space with 2 terraces measuring 10 qm each and some 65 qm cellar space. It has a 58 qm garden with outside shower and BBQ. Due to its position on a sloping hillside, the cellar with work shop, laundry room, heating and wine cellar can be accessed from the south facing side. The ground floor main entrance is accessible from the garden and offers a hall, the master bedroom with adjacent office/guest room, one further bedroom with fireplace, a dining area accommodating 8 people and a kitchen. Two terraces (facing south/east and north/west) offer the choice between sitting in the shade or in the sun.
A gas central heating system fitted as recently as 2020, an open fireplace and a wood fired stove in the kitchen keep the house pleasantly warm during the cooler months of the year.
Right above the house is another building surrounded by 478 qm grounds planted with 15 olive trees, producing some 20 l of most delicious olive oil. The 28 qm building is currently being used as workshop/studio. From the roof terrace (approx. 45 qm), stunning views over the surrounding mountains and Testico can be enjoyed.
