The facades are in original stone and are in good condition.
The house, to be completely renovated, has two floors equal in size for a total of around 60sq.m. Just a few minutes away, after crossing a path, there is a private garden of around 400sq.m which completes the property, allowing one to grow a magnificent vegetable garden or set-up as a green area. A little hideaway where you can relax, in a tranquil Ligurian hamlet which is ideal for a return to simplicity and tradition, while experiencing the beauty of nature and the countryside, just 20 minutes from the sea.
Carpasio is a characteristic village with winding roads which follow the steep cliffs of the Carpasina Valley, amidst farm houses which have preserved their original features.
Carpasio can be reached by going through Montalto Ligure, along a lovely road with an open view of the vast, breath-taking landscape.
At 715 meters above sea level half way up the mountain, surrounded by land which has been transformed into cultivated terraces with vegetable gardens, vineyards and olive trees, the hamlet appears after the last road turnings like a group of houses suspended in mid-air, full of charm and it begs to be discovered.
Walking within the labyrinth of alleys you find yourself wrapped in an atmosphere from another time: the plastered houses blend with those in natural stone, giving a sense of kindness to the lanes that cover the village from top to bottom, among porticos, arches, entrance halls, fountains and small courtyards decorated with geraniums. A magnificent parish church dedicated to Sant'Antonino, martyr of the second half of the 16th century, with its baroque oratory next-door.
Just a few miles away we have Sanremo, Ospedaletti, Bordighiera, Ventimiglia and Cotè d'Azur with Nice international airport.
The surroundings are characterised by several chapels called of "good journey", with scenes of the Stations of the Cross (Via Crucis) or the lives of Saints or with ex voto, all painted by local artisans.
Many excursions are available on foot or by mountain bike along the Carpasina stream which has crystal clear waters, pools and waterfalls in the middle of the woods or olive grove terraces.
An ideal place for those who long to relax in peace and quiet.
