About elisa sertorio

First of all an explanation! As you saw, the owner has a name, Luca Raggi, and it's true. But the lines below describe a piece of my life and my feelings. I am Elisa and I am your contact, Luca is my children's dad and our tax representative too, this is the reason why you see him as account) and with him and my second husband Riccardo, pictured with me , we have completed this great project. The house, dating back to the XVI century, is completely restored with care and love for the past. A job lasted five years, meeting all kinds of difficulties... the opportunity to publish the pictures you just saw, is a source of pride and great satisfaction for all our family, but especially for me, I confess. The project was so exciting to inducing me - executive in a big company - to radically change my working life. A good result I think, but what an effort! I worked hard to get it, but now the dream of my life is reality. I love so much this place, (I got married with Luca here, in the family castle that you see on left ), than I have shifted a bit of my passion into the home walls . Hope you feel what I mean if you stay here some days!

Why elisa sertorio chose Alassio

The house belongs to my family for over one hundred years. The best point of our property is just its fantastic nature around us and to the" tableau vivant" that the sea view offers every day. It's really unique.

The house, just 5,5 km from the coast, takes away the heat and the crowds of summer months and gives the feeling of having the sea in the countryside.

What makes this villa unique

You 'll find here comfort, charming simplicity, peace and quiet. This enchanting place allows you to be physically active and mentally relaxed. You can game golf at Garlenda Club, play tennis at Hanbury Tennis Club Alassio, swim, trek...

The recent restoration of the house has been a real love job, centered (also) on the reuse of materials: stone- discovered under the old plaster - original terracotta paving, chestnut wood for the ceilings. All that, combined with the attention to detail, sets an unforgettable charming mood. Never fails the peaceful at the house whenever you like. So near to downtown and so far from Summer mess.

Being a local, I know you will struggle to find parking spaces in Alassio as well sun- beds at beach, during July and August. So, taking care of you, I can negotiate for you the best price for a car place in downtown, as well a booking at one of the best beaches - you can choose it of course - in order to be able to offer you pool-fun on site and stress free beach the day. And... what about a table booked for you in an excellent Trattoria close to us, the evening of your arrival? Ask me please, if that's interesting for you :)))

Very beautiful villa with nice view

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful villa in private location. The house is nice and clean, a lot of places to relax and enjoy food and wine. Very comfortable beds, 2 big bathrooms. Indoor pool area (more like little spa), but can be opened in warm days. Driving up to hill can be challenging in first time but you get used to it and itś not a problem. Very kind and helpful hostess Elisa. Thank you!

Superbe location de standing

  • 5 of 5

Quelle maison délicieuse...

Elle est à la fois imprégnée d'histoire, tout en étant moderne.

Elle est spacieuse et très bien équipée. La vue est magnifique, et c'est un privilège que de pouvoir déjeuner face à la mer.

La piscine est un peu petite mais on apprécie son absence de vis à vis et le fait qu'elle soit chauffée !

Alassio est très vivant en été, avec beaucoup de jeunes.

Elisa et Ricardo ont été charmants et toujours à l'écoute.

Nous avons hâte de revenir.

Perfect stay with great holidays and warm hosts

  • 5 of 5

Elisa and Riccardo are just perfect hosts, who provide all amenities for a perfect holiday stay. They were not only very welcoming and always responsive to questions, but they also helped us with a small incident we had in the city of Alassio (as we did not speak adequate Italian to manage the situation ourselves), which was so nice of them. During our stay, we got several recommendations for nearby places to eat; the food at the restaurants was delicious and the overall dinner experiences perfect for our family.

The villa is decorated in very high standards and unique at the same time; a beautiful house with dedicated spa area was for us a great place to enjoy the beauty of Liguria. You will find not only very nicely decorated rooms and clean bathrooms, but also outdoor barbecues and a fully equipped kitchen (even with herbs!) to a standard I have never experienced before in a holiday accomodation! The outdoor area is very comfortable to sit and relax all day; in fact we spent most of our time outside at the big veranda or at the pool area, or in the beautifully decorated garden around the house.

The house is located very quiet and almost at the top of the coastal hills of Alassio, with about 5-10 minutes drive down to the city center. Due to this location, there are also a few nice trails for hiking (or biking) around the house (which I used almost every day during our stay) to enjoy the beautiful landscape and views of the coast, cities, and mountains.

In overall, I would recommend everyone to stay with Elisa's and Riccardo's house to enjoy a beautiful vacation in a nice part of Liguria. We are definitely planning to come back next time we are in Liguria! Thank you again.

Perfekter Aufenthalt im Traumhaus mit Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten unsere Ferien im schönen und wunderbar eingerichteten Haus. Es ist nicht nur geschmacksvoll eingerichtet sondern auch praktisch, sauber und es fehlte an nichts!

Die Aussicht ist atemberaubend und der gepflegte Garten, lädt mit kleinem Pool und Liegestühlen zum entspannen ein. Es gibt 2 Grillplätze für schöne Abende zu Hause.

Das Haus ist exakt 10 Autominuten vom Centro entfernt. In der Nähe gibt es ein tolles Restaurant und einen kleinen Laden mit frischen Brötchen.

Die Besitzerin ist sehr nett und steht für alle Fragen und Informationen zur Verfügung und ist super organisiert. Uns wurde auch eine Garage im Centro zur Miete Angeboten, was in der Hochsaison zu empfehlen ist.

Ich würde das Haus sofort wieder mieten und empfehle es gerne weiter. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und wünschen Elisa und Ihrer Familie nur das Beste.

Beautiful staying

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful holiday in the house of Elisa in Alassio. The house is cosy and arranged with great taste. I can say I really felt at home. Also my children enjoyed the house and could feel free in exploring the huge garden. Elisa and her husband were welcoming and discrete. I would recommend the staying anytime. We went there in the winter and could appreciate the fireplace yet I can immagine it is also fantastic in the summer with the beautiful spa.

5.5 km far from nearest beach. Over 100 bathing establishments, to choose along the coast. It is enough to consider its geographical position, the expansion of its beach, the possibility to swim from march to November, the shallow depth, the gentleness of its climate through the whole year. Alassio must be regarded as one of the best beaches in the world. The strand with its very fine grey-white dustless sand stretches over 4 km to join the seaside of wonderful Laigueglia.


Alassio 5,5km drive, Albenga 12,8km, San Remo 38km, Montecarlo 97km. Car essential.

Further Details:

The tourist history of Alassio is closely connected to its climate. Very thorough studies have compared the climate of the picturesque bay of Alassio to that of another pearl of Italian tourism, Amalfi. In fact both the coast and hilly belt are exposed to the South, a crown of mountains protects it from the northerly winds: that is why Alassio enjoys the typical Mediterranean maritime climate which is pleasant and mild, with annual range of about 15 degrees, average winter temperature of about 10 degrees and summers refreshed by marine breezes with temperatures around 25 degrees. It is above all due to its favourable climate that Alassio, towards the end of the 18th century, became among the first Italian towns to receive tourism from Europe. As time went by, the first wealthy English families who started this trend were replaced by a crowd of tourists coming from all over the world, as the latest statistics on the tourist flux show. The biggest shopping center of Liguria is the “Budello” of Alassio, the ancient alley stretching across the whole town, parallel to the sea front.Along both sides are the best shops of the Western Riviera with their latest ideas and fashions: from the most modern “griffe”, to the most precious antiques and traditional tastes.You'll find here. 24 Restaurants, 10 Supermakets, 10 Banks and more and more.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees No additional mandatory fees

When need, the LPG use for the independent heating system is not included ( € 4,5 per cubic m.) A meter will show you your consumption
Villa La NiCChia is a stone house at 360 meters above sea level: that's why we didn't provide it with an air-co system. Simply, it is not necessary. The SPA is not available if the air's temp is less than 15 degrees, or during the seasons with wide thermal gap, ask please. Please note that the rent quote of this period doesn't include the use of the SPA. But if you really want to enjoy an unusual experience, everything can be done! Just ask and be well-disposed at the inevitable extra charge :) the heating pump,helped by an electric heater, can make the water warm up to 28/ 30 degrees
