This is our favourite place to stay in such a charming property with every detail thought through. Where else can you step onto a balcony and feel as if you are stepping into the mountains , the views are unbeatable.
Having an expresso at Nina's listening to the church bells & taking a pastry back for later , eating at L'erba gatta and drinking at Bruno's each has its own delightful character.
We rarely leave Triora all week just because we can relax and enjoy the friendliness of everyone. We sleep so well here.
This is simply a wonderful house in a small mountain village that comes complete with everything you will ever need, don't worry about bringing tin openers or extra coat hangers...this house everything and more.
The real winner about this superb accommodation is of course the magnificent views from the 2 balconies, I promise you will never stay anywhere ever again with a view like this.
The panorama comes at a price though as the 45 minute drive up the mountain takes some adjusting to and will test your driving skills! However, you DO get used to it ( I went up and down 5 times during our week-long stay). The village is served by only one restaurant plus a further 2 small bars which also serves lighter meals, plus a 3rd at the entrance to the village. The restaurant has a limited menu (written only on a blackboard) but they will make subtle changes on request. Triora is worth exploring on foot as it is mostly pedestrianised and we enjoyed the steep climb up to the elevated cemetery from where you can actually LOOK DOWN on your holiday house and enjoy spectacular views. Explore too all the narrow, cobbled streets and try to spot the old bread ovens built into the walls. A 15 minute drive down the mountain to the next village, Molini di Triora, and you can relax by a lake with its cobbled stream. Take a picnic.
From our base in Triora, we took day trips to some lovely places in our hired car. We recommend day excursions to Dolceaqua and Apricale, two fabulous medieval villages close to each other but be mindful places of interest may not open (after siesta) until 3pm. Pieve di Teco is also worth a visit and a motorway drive to Monaco is a must. Allow an hour and a half to get anywhere though, its the price you pay for that mountain view!
The house owners, Mike and Pat were holidaying in Triora while we were there and it was fabulous chatting and picking their brains on local knowledge. We are so glad we chose this home (especially after the dated, rather unclean accommodation we were to stay in the following week, what a come down!),
In summary, I could quite happily live in this house. The town is quaint and welcoming and your holiday is one where you can either do little or run around a lot, like us, taking everything in. There is a small shop here which serves your basic needs, but for a larger shop you will need to drive down the mountain where we found a Lidl's. Overall, we loved it here and thoroughly recommend it. 5/5 rating.
This property was an excellent base for exploring the Maritime alps and also the western Italian riviera. The house was comfortable, clean and very well equipped for cooking. Lots of home comforts, cosy lamps, books, games etc. The local walking guide was especially useful. The views from the balcony were stunning but need a head for heights. Carla was very welcoming and helpful on arrival. We loved our stay in Triora and enjoyed the walking, the beaches on the coast and visiting the mountain villages and trying the traditional food such as pasta made from chestnut flour, cheeses and bread. It was like going back in time. We would love to come back sometime and explore more of this beautiful region. Thank you to Mike and Pat for sharing this lovely property.
We had a great holiday staying in this unique village. The house was very clean and had everything you could want. The views from the balcony are absolutely beautiful and we loved our evening walks around the village. The helicopter delivering roof timbers to a neighbouring house on our last morning was an unusual and exciting experience. Overall we would recommend this house and Triora to anyone. Thanks very much.
This was our second stay in the House and in Triora. We came back because both are so special. So much so, that Abi and I got engaged here this time.
We walked in and around Triora, we drove and enjoyed the coast (Imperia and Ospidaletti) and also had a cultural visit to Dolceacqua.
The restaurant L'Erba Gatta was excellent and we ate there 4 times.
The whole place is a proper Italian cultural experience in a House that is stunning with incredible views for the times you want to just chill and relax
I cannot recommend highly enough!!!
Triora is a hilltop village, a maze of winding passageways and tunnels that has to be seen to be believed! The house itself sits almost at the top, and has the most amazing views - we spent most evenings on the balcony ( you need a head for heights) just watching, and listening to the church bells from the villages across the valley. The house has been well-designed, and Mike and Pat have given a lot of thought into what their guests will need to self-cater so far into the hills. Travel light though, because as the village is pedestrianised it's a fair walk with your luggage through the passageways - we were much fitter by the end of the week! Truly worth it for the incredible views.
