Absolutely charming and romantic conversion of an old rustic house, made by one of Denmark’s top interior designers. The restoration has left the house absolutely authentic, with all original features, open fireplace, beams, vaulted ceilings, old stonework, whilst adding a top design finish with modern natural wood kitchen, modern bathrooms and a beautiful covered balcony, which can be easily glassed in to create further living space. The house is in a superb position enjoying fine mountain views, south facing and open on the crest of the mountain.
The property is of some 4500 m sq consisting of 9 relatively flat terraces, which are facing south, with a beautiful view of the Nervia valley. Sun from morning to evening. At the edge of the property a fast running stream gives the sound of running water inside the house. You can harvest your own top quality olive oil from 37 olive trees.
The house was totally rebuilt in 2006.

– Ground Floor: Bedroom with two beds, bathroom with shower and toilet, antique stone cellar with gas-heater, washing machine and space for storage
