Property Overview

As this extraordinary 2020 comes to an end, one positive of this strange time is that it has created a wealth of opportunity for anybody with ambition.

That is precisely what is on offer here with this beautiful old building for sale on the glorious Italian Riviera.

This wonderful place not only offers buyers a potentially stunning place to live but also a shrewd investment in the holiday rental market thanks to its stunning location, Dolceacqua, which is beautifully located, just 15km from both the Italian and French Riviera, providing glorious views of both.

Property Details 

This house is nicely situated among olive groves, some 6 km above the medieval village of Dolceacqua.

The natural stone house is solid and the three floors provide one large room each plus a possible cellar extension on the ground floor. This part of the building, measuring 85 sqm can be renovated and extended for which a planning permission has already been granted.  This property qualifies for a building index allowing for a new building or an extension by 120 m2 living space and 85 m2 usage space. This project would, however, require a new planning application.

The surrounding 12,254 m2 grounds, of which 5,427 qm2 are woodland and the remaining area are olive groves, laid out in terraces and planted, with some 150 olive trees.

With the exception of the final 1.5 km, the access road is well constructed and leads right to the front of the house.

Electricity connections are already in place and water supplies still require connecting. Alternatively, there is the option to build a private well on the grounds.

About the area

Claude Monet, who in 1884 stayed in nearby Bordighera, went inland and in addition to the natural wonders of the coast, was enchanted by the village of Dolceacqua.

The Impressionist Painter drew the view of the village, the Castle of the Roman bridge of Dolceacqua and in his letters he wrote fascinated:

“… the place is superb, there is a bridge that is a jewel of lightness …”

Today the medieval village of Dolceacqua is still identical to how Claude Monet painted it in the late 1800s (see painting in photos above).

Because of its timeless beauty Dolceacqua is now a destination for tourists of all nationalities, who go here from the coastal cities of Liguria and neighbouring France or who spend a few days of vacation in the numerous B&B spread among the carts.

Dolceacqua is the oldest Orange Flag in Italy since 2000 (more than 100 countries in Italy have been awarded this coveted award) and is the national headquarters of the Association of Orange Flag Countries having the Presidency.

It is a brand of tourist-environmental quality for the hinterland of the Italian Touring Club, defined by the World Tourism Authority as the only successful fair tourism project in Italy.
