The Agriturismo land is to be found both in Pietrabruna and in the “Isola” area, 2km from the village, where its soil has been cultivated to provide olive groves, vineyards, orchards and vegetable gardens.
We are in the heart of the Western Ligurian Riviera, 15 minutes from the sea yet at the same time immersed in the lush green of inland Liguria, with a breathtaking backdrop of mountains.
The Ligurian Riviera is greatly renowned for its mild climate. Summers are invariably hot. However its altitude (350m above sea level) ensures that the nights are almost always cool. Winters are never harsh and it is often possible to eat outdoors, under the olive groves, whose silvery green lend a unique atmosphere to the countryside. Temperatures are also very comfortable throughout Spring and Autumn.
The apartments are situated in the historic centre of Pietrabruna, 15 minutes from San Lorenzo al Mare, 20 minutes from Imperia and 30 minutes from Diana Marina, San Bartolomeo al Mare, Arma di Taggia and Bussana Vecchia (historic Bussana); 40 minutes from Sanremo and from Alassio; less than an hour away from the Cote d’Azur, Menton, Nice and Montecarlo, and an hour’s distance from Genova.
The nearest beaches are to be found at San Lorenzo al Mare, 15 minutes from Pietrabruna. There is a wide range of public and private beaches to choose from, sandy, rocky or pebbled (see photo). Imperia also boasts some beautiful beaches: in Porto Maurizio you can find the public and private beaches of Borgo Prino. The beaches of the “Marina” are almost all private, requiring an entry fee. The beaches along the “Spianata” seafront at Oneglia are sandy and pebbles, public and private. At the end of the “Spianata” you will find another very beautiful seafront called “L’INCOMPIUTA”, which will take you to Diana Marina in about 20 minutes on foot or 10 minutes by bike. The route takes in some lovely pebbled and rocky beaches.
