The Villa and the out buildings of "Mereta Castle” date back to 1400. They are surrounded by beautiful greenery, within a hectare of private olive grove, and are located on a beautiful hill overlooking a natural amphitheatre with views down to the sea. It is a place for exclusive holidays where the idyllic feel of the countryside, and the charm “Dolce Vita” are combined with the elegance of the "Master House" and the majesty of the adjacent "Tower".

The space
The site is quiet and romantic, with infinity swimming pool with water jets and green relax area with sun beds and remarkable panoramic views towards the peninsula of Portofino and Sestri Levante, then towards the Val d'Aveto and Val di Vara, and on a clear day, looking towards the South, you can see the profile of Corsica's mountains.

Guest access
The rustic interior comes with a precious and charming furniture at the same time offers comfortable 10 sleeps in 5 bedrooms.
The residential part of the Villa (400 square meters) consists of a spacious and cozy living room on the ground floor with 1 bedroom and a bathroom. There are 3 large double bedrooms on the first floor and two bathrooms. There is also an exclusive 50sqm terrace finished in local stone with stunning views of the Ligurian Sea.
On the top floor is an attic with a bedroom with a terrace and veranda overlooking the sea.
From the ground floor you can walk down to a tavern with exposed stone walls, majestic wooden beams, a corner Wine bar and an efficient rustic kitchen wood stove and fireplace.

Other things to note
The proximity to the sea is only 7 Km which allows a peaceful holiday in the countryside without giving up a daily beach life.
Just 25 km away is the Natural Park of Portofino and San Fruttuoso, and in just 40 min. drive you can reach the famous Natural Park of Cinque Terre.
The Mereta Castle is 180 KM away from Milan

I'm Alberto, son of Marianna and Giorgio. My family has owned this property for many many years and I've been growing here as a child. However, things change, the life bring you elsewhere and sometimes it is difficult to combine living in such a property with the everyday routine of working life and family needs. But this is my property, a large part of my family history and memories are still there, and I want to keep all this still alive, until I can. I want to keep alive the property and share the unique characteristics of this place with the guests who appreciate it. It's not a great business, because of costs, personal efforts and Taxes, but the alternative would be to keep the property closed. By far I prefer to keep it open instead, and share my place and my memories with nice people like you. You can find other places to spend your vacations, they can be of course more or less nice depending by your preferences, at the end this area is one of the best in Italy and definitively you can't make a wrong choice in deciding to spend your holidays here. Nevertheless, there is something you can't get elsewhere apart from here: there is no other place where you can relax under the shadow of a centenary watchtower which was built even before Columbus was discovering the Americas!!! History and memories from a past ancient time pervade all the property. For those who appreciate it, it's a great added value which you can't find elsewhere.
