Medieval village home - Ceriana, Italy home swap
Our home is part of an 800 year old property within the village. Over the years the houses have been broken up and our apartment stretches across two such properties with other apartments above and below some of it!
It has been extensively modernised since we moved here 10 years ago and now has a comfortable interior but with the old facade of Medieval times.
The property consists of a hallway leading into a kitchen/living room with windows looking across the hills. This room is always light as the windows face the morning sun. The living room leads into a smaller room now used as my study/studio.
From the hallway there is a door into our large bedroom and from there the ensuite bathroom. The bedroom has a vaulted ceiling giving it a medieval feel.
Although you enter the property from the street and only a few steps take you into the kitchen, looking out o the window on the other side of the room you will see that the property is 3 flights up. This is because the town is built on the side of a steep hill/mountain.
About the location
A Medieval village situated on the side of a mountain and surrounded by beautiful scenery but only 20 mins drive from Sanremo and the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Ceriana is a peaceful place that seems lost in time but in fact has many modern amenities. Houses are reached via stepped alleyways while cars are left along the main road. It is in a wonderful position to explore the area being so close to France but also with many Italian places nearby both in the hills or along the coast.
