Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, 7 - APRICALE (IM)
“ Da Giuà” the new Bed & Breakfast run by the Pisanos, opened at Christmas 2004. It is in the heart of the ancient village of Apricale (from the latin “Apricus”, which means “ exposed to the sun”), one of the most beautiful places in the west of Liguria, within a stone’s throw from the sea and from the Cote d’Azur, in the hills of the Nervia valley.

It takes its name from old grandfather Giuà, beloved man from Apricale and the Bed & Breakfast is known with the affectionate nickname of “the grandparents’ house”.

The building has been renovated recently and the Pisanos have maintained all the characteristics of the Ligurian architecture; they can offer double rooms with private bathrooms, satellite Tv and heating and an amazing view of the valley and the village.

The wooden beam ceiling, the imposing fireplace and the kitchen reflect a world which seems to be disappearing and make this place ideal to spend relaxing weekends for young people and families who want to be in touch with nature and old traditions.

The place lies at the foot of a medieval castle facing the ancient square of the village. It is the starting point to visit the wonderful treasures of Apricale, offering the visitors a mixture of history, charm, traditions and legends.

The Village
The village, which is in one of the clubs “I Borghi più Belli d’Italia” (The most beautiful Italian villages) and “Bandiere Arancioni ” (The Orange Flags), has maintained its historical, artistic and architectural heritage, combining the protection of the natural environment and the traditions with a substainable tourist development.

Visitors can have an enjoyable time together with lots of shows and exhibitions all year round combining culture and relaxation.

Naturalistic, historical and worldly itineraries
People who like long walks will find wild tracks with a rich flora and fauna.

The terrace-cultivation of olive trees, supported by dry-stone walls, makes this place one of the most suggestive in the area and ideal for excursions.

The hills, the sea of the Riviera dei Fiori and its closeness to France surround this comfortable Bed & Breakfast with all mod cons. The seaside is only 15 Km away and there you can enjoy free sandy or pebbly beaches or even rocks plunging into the sea.

At last, you can visit the Cote d’Azur and the Principality of Monaco, so rich in history and society life. “Da Giuà” is the right spot to relax, to enjoy the beautiful open spaces all around and the spectacular amphitheatre of houses and palaces facing the square. Why not come and appreciate unforgettable and peaceful moments or soak up the atmosphere of good, old times and recharge your batteries!
