The exclusive mansion “La Colletta” is situated in a quiet location with panoramic view over the entire valley, in the outskirts of the charming village of Prelà, no more than a few kilometres away from the fine sand beaches of the Riviera. A broad network of wonderful trails invites you to discover the beautiful surroundings, with many options from evening strolls to adventurous hikes. The necessary groceries, including fresh bread, can be bought at the local store in Prelà (just 1 km on foot or 2,5 km by car). Otherwise, the animated centre of Imperia (11 km), the elegant boutiques of Sanremo (30 km) or the famous streets of Monte Carlo (60 km) invite you to go on a shopping tour. A variety of restaurants, from the small pizzeria in the village to the starred restaurant in Imperia are ready to satisfy your wishes.
La Colletta accommodates up to ten people on 280 sqm with its six bedrooms (three double bedrooms, two single bedrooms and a separate double room in the annex building) and six bathrooms. The mansion is surrounded by a large, fenced garden which includes a private swimming pool. As you enter the house you are welcomed by a tastefully designed living space with a dining area and a saloon on the one side and a fully equipped, elegant kitchen with access to a separate storage room on the other side. The ancient stone and mosaic floors harmoniously complement the balanced variety of antique and modern furniture, creating a sophisticated atmosphere.
The first floor is composed of a cosy living space (with the option of one additional bed) and two charming double bedrooms (160x200), each with a private bathroom. On the second floor there is another double bedroom (160x200) with a bathroom and two single bedrooms en-suite. Every bedroom in the house offers a wonderful panoramic view of the entire valley.
The annex building, which can be added to your booking if needed, contains an additional double bedroom (140x200) with a small bathroom. This room has an independent access to the garden.
As stunning as the inside of the house may be, its true gem is the outside space. The big salt water pool (4x10, chlorine free) with counter-current system lies in the garden’s sunniest spot, perfect for sunbathing. The adjacent lawn offers many options to relax in the shade of the olive trees. Dressing rooms with a restroom can be found by the pool.
Whatever kind of relaxation you prefer, the garden of the mansion will not let you down. Whether you are seeking some alone time in the hammock or prefer to enjoy a glass of wine with friends or family in the cosy lounge, whether you prefer sun or shade, everyone can find their favourite spot. Our more active guests are welcome to make use of the private boules track and the table football, only to round off the evening with a homemade meal from the fully equipped outdoor kitchen including a barbecue, a pizza oven and an outdoor sink. The large exterior dining area will ensure many memorable evenings under the olive trees.
Up to three cars can be comfortably parked in the private parking space. The entire premise is very well-maintained. The pool-service and the gardener take care of the outside area once a week. In addition, the housekeeper changes the linen and does a quick cleaning of the inside spaces (3h). If you so wish, you may book an additional housekeeping service. A holiday at La Colletta is the definition of Italian “dolce vita”, just waiting to be discovered.
