The renovation of spring of 2011 created a design jewel in the antique vault of this palazzo (town house) in the area of the historic old town of Porto Maurizio. Here you will live the high-end life with exquisite decor and facilities, in close proximity of the sea. The fine, sandy municipal beach of Imperia is only a few minutes’ walk away, as are the nearby pubs, shopping facilities and beach discos. Yet, this holiday apartment is situated in an enchanted location in a quiet, traffic-calmed side street (garage hire available, €70/week). You will only need your car if you wish to explore the romantic hinterland or the nearby coastal resorts of Nice or Monaco, both of which are within an hour’s drive.
You enter this holiday apartment through the double doors, which takes you directly into the combined kitchen/living area. Here the latest technology has been combined with the extravagant architecture of the tunnel-like vault and the partially exposed stone walls. A well-known architect has created an unusual and rightfully award-winning gem. The antique stone sinks and the enormous high ceiling give this property an original charm and unusual ambience. The extravagant solution of the concealed kitchen has won a design award. Next you enter the shower room/WC, which has been designed completely in grey slate and features an extra large shower, bidet and WC. The double bedroom is located at the back of the apartment: a large, comfortable double bed is staged with modern lighting; the high window provides additional daylight. Sophisticated details, such as the height-adjustable coffee table and the glass radiator provide high-level living in a historic ambience.
