We are located in a private property miraculously untouched by modern overbuilding, unblemished by pollution, earth radiations and noise contamination. We believe in the beauty and warmth of Casa Lorenzina. Our house is approx. 250 yards from the Aurelia state coastal road, strategically close to all interest points. Actually, we are perfectly located just at the border of chic Italian & French Riviera, approx. 2 miles from Ventimiglia, 1 mile to the nearest village, 2 miles from French Cote D’Azur, 7 Miles Eastwards from Sanremo and 7 miles Westwards from Monte-Carlo, 23 miles to the International airport of Nice, France. We are here to support our fine Guests, in their discovery of this part of Italy, with its food and wine. Count on us for advice about the best value for money restaurants , wine-tatsing, basic eateries, and the beauties our blessed area has to offer: countless possibilities for hikes, walks and visits in the Riviera sunshine. Every day you have but choose: renowned coastal strip resorts, the picturesque inland villages, shopping Meccas as Sanremo boutiques and the huge Ventimiglia Friday market, swimming in natural stone pools under a cascade, playing posh in Monte-Carlo & Monaco Principality- home to the Formula 1 Grand Prix race, the nearby Mercantour alpine National Park with its perennial snows ...
The name says it all. A sophisticated mix of period traditional Italian and French design, precious textiles, a wrought-iron four-poster bed, the wicked-chairs with matching table and the finish details create a very cosy, romantic atmosphere. The walls are painted with a wax- based technique in the shade of peach, and the colour scheme is in subdued tones of sand. A 17th century dining table fits rather well with the adjoining cherry-wood wardrobe.
the ancient abbess was the last to dwell here, and her aura still seems to pervade this room. The only addition to the eighteenth century layout is the bathroom. The massive walls (33 inches thick) , frescoed barrel vault, whitewashed walls, everything conjures drama from the past. The otherwise severe atmosphere is warmed up by the rich textiles and graceful Italian and French period pieces.

Merci à Pierre de nous avoir fait découvrir avec authenticité, simplicité et gentillesse, sa belle propriété dans un ancien couvent, complètement atypique avec un décor soigné. Un petit dejeuner délicieux et très copieux, une vue imprenable sur la mer et la côte. Il nous tarde déjà d'y retourner!

An Irish family of five adults on a tight holiday budget, finding Casa Lorenzina was pure serendipity, an exceptional start to a wonderful holiday. Pier's warm hospitality made us feel very welcome. The view, the leisurely breakfasts, the aroma of the flowers and plants, Pier's conversation and advice about where we might dine and what we might like to see and do made the first few days of our holiday positively memorable.

After we drove up the wrong train Pier guided us back and then introduced us to the estate. It is rustic and lovely and perfectly situated. His restaurant suggestions (Caravalle) was superb. The highlight was a 2 hour breakfast with Pier cooking up dish after dish of surprises. Wow!

A great holiday in a very service friendly host, who had his greatest wish that we would have the best possible stay. Very good and varied breakfast. Great beaches, nice town. Its location suggests that having a car available is a great advantage to get to the surroundings, the city and beaches. Many thanks to Pier for a memorable stay! Inge and Mildrid - Norway

We were arriving late so we were kindly surprised when the owner arrived to meet us and to show the way to the B&B (driving instructions were very clear and GPS coordinates led exactly to the place - I watched it while following the owner's car). The steps to the house are covered with flowers and blosoms (what we both admired). The room "Romantica" (where we stayed) was very clean and looked even better than in the photo and welcomed us with a sweet smell of tropiocal flowers and a bottle of cold water. My girfriend was so admired that she could express her feelings with the word "Fantastic"... The owner was very kind and helpful explaining all necessary things and giving instructions for sightseeing and dining. The room was very comfortable - enough space (approx. 25-28 sq.m. or even more), very pleasant atmosphere, having the sea view right in front of our window giving us sweet mornings with sea of a green color and romantic evenings with lights of nearby villages. In spite there was no air conditioner, the room was equipped with the fan and it was not hot in the room on the sunny day (the temperature was varying from 29 to 35 degrees C). The greatest thing in the room was a bed, which was so comfortable, that we used to oversleep our breakfast. Te breakfast was served in a terrace (with a sea view) and was very tasty. We also had interestnig discussions with the owner about what to visit and how to do it comfortably and knowledge was very helpful. When we had to leave, it was very sad. We have really spent unforgetable time in a fantastic place. We both agreed that 3 nights spent in the room was not enough and, if we have a chance, we will return to this place with a great pleasure.

We are back in Santa Fe after a wonderful trip. We have all agreed that our time with you was the best. Your home is so wonderful and the views amazing. But it was your hospitality that was the best! We visited many, many historic places and saw many gorgeous works of art, but it is experiences with people that we value most. You were so helpful in guiding us to fascinating places to see. But again the highlight of the sightseeing was when you directed and went with us to the overlook at the top of the mountain with the view of Monaco, Monte Carlo and way beyond, the same overlook that the Romans used to protect against invaders. Our daughter has told many that you are such a kind and gentle person. We agree. Thank you so much!
