Pigna is an Italian medieval village just over the border from the French riviera. It is located within the foothills below the mountains and set in breathtaking countryside. It is only a 20 minute drive from the coastline of both the French and Italian Rivieras, including Monte Carlo / Monaco, San Remo, Bordegheria and is surrounded by many more beautiful and interesting medieval villages. It`s a special place where time seems to have stood still and you can enjoy a real Italian holiday but is so close to the charms of the Italian and French rivieras.
Within the village of Pigna there are many amenities including several local grocery shops (one of which is a hundred metres from the house), 4 restaurants including a local wood fired oven bar/pizzeria and a brilliant family run traditional restaurant, a few local bars, tennis court, children's play park, chemist, a bank and a 4 * spa hotel with indoor and outdoor swimming pools gym and spa.
Take a stroll when you wake to the local cafe, order a cappuccino and delight at the homemade cakes & pastries; a perfect way to start your day the Italian way!
There are local places of interest in the village such as historic churches and the town square which has it's own local produce market every Saturday morning. The medieval heart of the village is very impressive, almost castle like and of course has no cars. There are many medieval buildings and places to explore, including the original bread ovens, town square etc. In addition there are fantastic walking and climbing trails throughout the mountain's accessed from many locally sign posted paths from the village where you can explore historic sites and churches, hidden streams and rock pools with river swimming pools very close by.
The villa sleeps 6 comfortably and is very charming and unique. It is unusual to have such a lovely private garden within the historic part of Pigna village.
The area has many attractions and is a beautiful combination of mountains and sea.
Italy is a food lovers paradise and the food in this region is typically homemade and rustic. Small village family run restaurants often without menus, just the food of the day, as well as fantastic wood fired oven pizza's, seafood specialities at the coast and Michelin fine dining. The 4 restaurants in the village are great examples and are within walking distance of the house. This area really is a food lovers paradise and has many unique dishes from this beautiful part of Italy.
In addition we can advise on any questions you have...things to do etc, as well as help to arrange weddings, special occasions etc.
