Lieber Herr de Koning,
wir möchten uns nach Ende unseres Urlaubs in Cairo Montenotte kurz Rückmelden. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen! Pool, Tennisplatz, Tischtennisplatte etc wurden ausgiebig genutzt! Die Betreuung vor Ort durch Eleonora und Renzo war perfekt, beide waren immer für uns da!
Vielen Dank für den wunderschönen Urlaub!
Viele Grüße aus Bayern,

The property was as described and had real wow factor. There was plenty of space for 20 work colleagues to relax and have fun as well as host some workshops.
The staff who look after the property were very attentive and made the whole stay very easy and enjoyable.
Great home for large groups!

3 families stayed at the villa for 3 weeks and we absolutely loved it. There was plenty of room to spread out and have space to yourself. The large kitchen was fully equipped with all sorts of tools for a chef. The wood burning pizza oven made some of the best pizza I’ve ever had! The kids enjoyed the pool, playing tennis and watching movies in the TV room. The pool is heated via solar panels, so it was still quite cold but still nice enough to swim on very warm days. The grocery store is only 5-10 mins away so it makes it easy to go on quick grocery runs. There are shutters on every window, which is nice for keeping the rooms dark when sleeping in mornings. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of towels.
Although I gave it 5 stars, there were a few things I wanted to share. The clothes drier was broken and unusable for the entire first week we were there and ended up having to be replaced. Having said that, the response time from the house manager was very quick, it just took time to order a new drier. One of the toilets also broke and took a few days to be repaired due to the weekend. I would also caution you to bring your own DVD’s because a lot of the ones at the house are scratched and unreadable.
Overall it was a fabulous, unforgettable visit. We loved our stay and would return!

Our time in Cairo Montenotte will always be very special.
The area, the villa, the people were so nice. We really felt at home. Martin, the villa is spectacular.
Special thanks to Eleonora for helping to organize and guiding us when we needed it
It would be remiss if I did not mention Paolo and his wonderful feast. Please tell him many thanks. He was not only a great chef, but a great person, with big personality. That was a fun night. Please pass on our thanks and gratitude to Lorenzo. He simply is the best.
I would need a million words to describe all the memories we had. The pictures will have to make do. But I will say the pizza oven day, at the villa and pool, for me was special. If my regular job does not work out I now have a fall back that I would truly enjoy.
Best to all- many thanks again,
John Caruso and family.
Outstanding Rental for Larger Groups
22 sep 2016
Fourteen members of my family (adults and children) spent two weeks this past summer in this outstanding farm home. There was more room than we needed, both inside and outside.
The fresh mountain air and breezes were ideal for spending time at the pool, tennis court, ping pong table, and leisurely strolls around the property.
We all had a fabulous time. We even had a chef come in to cook for us several times. Dealing with the owner’s rep was easy and a pleasure.
I’d recommend this home for larger groups who want still to have personal privacy.

Very nice home, well stocked. Service of Rental Agency and handy man fine. Temperature 10 degrees lower than on the coast which perfect given the hot week we stayed there. Will most certainly try and rent it again!i
Wonderful in springtime

We spent a week with friends during the Easter holidays and it was absolutely wonderful. The fruit trees around the house were blooming, it was surprisingly warm and sunny, we had lunch outside in the garden in our T-shirts and gathered around the fireplace in the evening. The pool was still a little chilly, but the area around the house is very nice for hiking and running. We love the town of Cairo Montenotte with its thursday market, the nice restaurants and bars and we spent a beautiful day in Torino.
The house was impeccable as was the service and support from Martin and Eleonora.
We definitely look forward to return some time in summer or autumn
Trip of a lifetime!

I cannot say enough about our stay in Cairo Montenotte in this villa. We took a family trip in October, when the weather is still beautiful. There were 10 adults and one baby and the house was beyond large enough for a party of our size, we could have fit more people! We were very happy with the house, we spent almost all of our time in the large kitchen and cooked most dinners there. We would go to the grocery store in town and get supplies and wine every day. Cairo Montenotte is a small town, but this was a great base for exploring the area, we spent a day in Nice, a day in Portofino, a day in Barolo and a couple days closer to home in the coastal towns. I should note that you MUST be comfortable with driving if would want to cover this much area! I am sure in the summer the pool is amazing and you may want to actually do nothing and just relax. We LOVED the pizza house on the property and had a pizza night, which was a highlight.
The best part about this house for us was the owner Martin and his partner Elenora, who runs the house in Italy. Martin helped us plan every aspect of our trip and provide pages of recommendations. He planned all my requests, which included a chef coming to the house to cook for us and a local wine tasting down the road from the house, both of which were wonderful, in addition to setting up dinners and day trips. He was more than happy to answer all my questions and helped with all aspects of coordinating a trip of this size. To me, this was very important. Once we got there, Elenora was just as helpful, I had many questions and would just text her and should would get right back to me. We decided last minute to do a wine tour and she quickly put be in contact with a tour organizer, she answered restaurant questions, offered to make or change reservations, call local taxis, etc. To me, having such amazing people who know the area at our disposal is what made our trip spectacular. I would highly recommend this home for your trip of a lifetime!
We had a fantastic week staying at the property. Everything about it was as good as, or better than the photos. We are a group of friends from university now in our mid-twenties and the setup of the house was perfect.
We played a lot of tennis, enjoyed swimming in the pool, table tennis, and attempting to make pizza in the pizza oven. The kitchen was very well equipped to cater for 20 of us, and the indoor spaces meant we could either all sit together or break up into smaller groups in the many lounges.
One thing the website doesn’t mention is the house has a piano – make sure to bring along some music if you can play.
A perfect holiday.
