Casa Caledonia (4-6 people) : Comfort, Character & Charm – 12km to Sea, BBQ, Garden, Balcony
Situated at the upper edge of Lecchiore-Dolcedo, the cobbled pathway of Via IV Novembre leads up to Casa Caledonia – a large mansion house with original loggia and three-hundred year old cellars.
In 2006 we went to Liguria on holiday, fell in love with Casa Caledonia – and bought it – even though it was a ruin. We have worked on the building every year since then. The lower apartment – which we lived in for a few years while we were renovating the upper floor – is now rented as a splendid holiday home.
The apartment, covered terrace and private gardens combine modern comforts with old world charm for the perfect holiday retreat.
The property is tastefully decorated and well-equipped for a family or group of 4-6 people. With matching crockery, comfortable mattresses and large walk-in shower, it was designed as a home as opposed to simply a holiday-let.
The balcony – and gardens with BBQ – overlook a stunning valley and church bell-tower that chimes every hour. There is a large, covered dining area: ideal when it is very hot. At night you can sit with a glass of wine watching the fireflies and listening to the toads.
