Good morning, my name is Alberto and rent my house for holidays since 2009. I do so with great pleasure, enthusiasm and passion. I designed and personally and patiently built the villa and the estate around it, always trying to improve it. During the winter months, when the villa is closed, I always make improvements, around the house and in the area of ​​4000 square meters estate around it. They are present since 2009 on an important international site, in which I have at least 35 reviews of the guests, all with the highest score, and easily viewable at any time. Whatever you need, from the smallest question or request for information, they are available. Thank you.

travel period: August 2019


Als bekennende Toscana Fans haben wir uns dieses Jahr dann doch für eine andere Ecke Italiens entschieden und haben es nicht bereut. Ligurien in all seiner Schönheit hat uns fasziniert und Albertos Ferienhaus ist einfach nur ein Traum. An alles ist gedacht und die umwerfende Herzlichkeit die uns den ganzen Urlaub über begleitete hat uns diesen Urlaub unvergesslich werden lassen. Der große Garten mit all seinen Köstlichkeiten/ das wunderbare Essen welches uns serviert wurde ( die Pesto Lasagne - ein Traum!) , die Tipps die uns gegeben wurden und nicht zuletzt der köstliche Wein ... Einkaufen im Ort ersparte uns die großen Einkaufsmärkte und wir waren da gern gesehene Kunden ! Nur einen Bruchteil der vielen Dinge, die man sehen muss ist zu schaffen, die Nähe zu Frankreich ziemlich cool und so sind wir nach 14 Tagen, im Wissen das wir wiederkommen werden , abgereist und haben zusätzlich einen neuen Freund gefunden. Wir waren als Patchwork Familie mit unseren erwachsenen Kindern & dazugehörigen Freund/ in unterwegs und haben den Urlaub sehr genossen. Auf bald, lieber Alberto !

Een Italiaans paradijs

from Robert from 8446 / Heerenveen

5 5 5 5 5

travel period: August 2018


Zes jaar geleden hebben we deze gouden vakantieplek ontdekt. Sindsdien zijn we hier elke zomervakantie te vinden. Je geniet hier letterlijk van een zorgeloze en veilige vakantie waar je kunt kiezen voor rust en dobberen in het zwembad, zon zee en strand, of meer de drukte van fantastische steden zoals San Remo, Monaco en Nice. Aan lekker eten geen gebrek: elke dag worden we weer door de gastvrije eigenaar verrast met verse groente en fruit uit eigen tuin. Maar ook regelmatig vinden wij flessen wijn aan onze deur gemaakt van de druiven waardoor je hier letterlijk wordt omringd. Echt, het ontbreekt je hier aan niets. Elke week maakt moeders een Italiaans lokaal lekkernij, waar we tot nu toe onze vingers bij hebben opgegeten. Het zwembad in de achtertuin is van prima kwaliteit. Gezondheid staat hier hoog in het vaandel: zout en geen chloor wordt gebruikt om het zwembad schoon te houden. Het vakantiehuis bestaat uit twee verdiepingen waarbij de bovenste verdieping, met 3 slaapkamers de grootste is. Maar voor een kleiner gezelschap of mensen in een rolstoel, is het kleinere appartement op de begane grond ideaal. Beide verdiepingen zijn van alle gemakken voorzien, inclusief een prima internetverbinding. In geval van (toeristische) vragen staat de eigenaar al weer klaar om ze te beantwoorden. Kortom, zoek je een vakantie in het echte Italie tussen Italianen, zoek je rust maar wil je ook kunnen kiezen voor zon zee, stand of stad, ben je een levensgenieter en houd je van lekker eten en wijn, dan is dit de plek om te zijn.

Tolles Ferienhaus mit großem Pool. Sehr nette Vermieter, welche uns regelmäßig mit selbst angebautem Gemüse, Obst und Wein versorgt haben.
Selbst unsere Rollstuhlfahrerin konnte sich mit ihrem Rollstuhl problemlos in der unteren Wohnung und auf dem Gelände gut fortbewegen.

travel period: July 2017


Ruhig gelegen in einem kleinen charmanten Dorf liegt die Villa Nora. Mit einem tollen Blick über das ganze Tal kann man die Tage und Abende in vollen Zügen geniessen. Die Villa bietet reichlich Platz auch für große Familien und ist gut ausgestattet. Ein großzügiger Salzwasser Pool lädt zum Schwimmen und plantschen ein. Es gibt viele Beschäftigungsmöglichkeiten von Dart über Tischtennis und Kicker. Wunderbar relaxen kann man in den unter der mit Weinreben bewachsenen Pergola angebrachten Hängematten. Ein ganzer Keller voller Spielsachen und Poolspielzeug wartet auf die kleineren. Gastfreundschaft und Hilfsbereitschaft werden hier groß geschrieben. Wir wurden verwöhnt mit selbstgemachter Pizza und dem leckeren Wein aus eigenem Anbau. Auch bei bei Therapeuten und Arzt Suche, die leider nötig waren, stand uns Alberto (der Besitzer) unterstützend zur Seite.
Der Ort Soldano ist zwar klein hat aber doch einiges zu bieten von dem kleinem Tante Emma Laden, Metzger, Apotheke, ein tolles kleines Restaurant und eine tolle Bar. Strände und diverse Ausflugsziele sind auch gut und schnell zu erreichen.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und fahren erholt nach Hause. Es war mit Sicherheit nicht der letzte Urlaub in der Villa Nora. Grazie Alberto!
