The tranquil village of Dolcedo, with its sandy beaches, is a mere 6 km from the sea; it is widely known for its completely preserved historic villagescape. The 12th century Knights Hospitaller bridge spans a wide arch across the romantic backdrop of the river with its old mills and colourful houses. No wonder that this view has become a symbol of the beauty of the Ligurian villages.
The excellent infrastructure of the hamlet offers a bank, a chemist, a bakery, a butcher’s and a well-stocked village shop with everything for your daily needs. In addition, a number of restaurants and pizzerias have established themselves in the picturesque alleys. The village also has a very good bus connection to Imperia.
On the last Sunday of the month, an antiques market animates the quaint Piazza and invites you to rummage. During the summer months, classical concerts are performed at irregular intervals in the Church Square of San Tommaso, the main church of Dolcedo. Maybe you will be lucky enough to meet a famous musician in the small coffee bar whilst enjoying a cappuccino.
The Casa del Notaio is the ancestral seat of one of the most well-known family of notaries within the region. For many generations the members of the Re Family have notarised business transactions they have been entrusted with. The stately Palazzo dominates the tranquil Piazza and you can literally tell that in this building history was made and stories were written.
