“Our Own Castle for a Week”
Reviewed 6 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Who knew one could vacation and come home feeling relaxed and rested? The Old Olive Mill is perfect for exactly that.
Words won't give justice to the setting, but simply put: it's a small stone castle tucked away up a quiet lane and perched on the side of a mountain creek. A quick walk into town and you'll find most of what you need. Don't miss a cappuccino and pastry from Cavagnu, or gelato from the gelatiera. The Ventimiglia market is work checking out for fresh produce, olives and cheese.
The Olive Mill is comfortable, and perfect for a true Italian experience.

Thank you for your excellent review, we have tried to make the Mill as comfortable as possible, unfortunately we will not be able to put a bath in as the bathroom is too small, but we do out best to attend to all improvements that we can make at the Mill and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

“A perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everday life in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 20 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

The Mill is as beautiful as its photographs. It sleeps 6 comfortably & is very well equiped. If you enjoy nature this is the place to go. A kids paradise with a river running alongside which was full of tadpoles, fish and places to swim and explore. It has a plunge pool and a large garden. The English/Italian & French speaking owner was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed several bbq's and ate most of our meals outside, surrounded by nothing but trees & the sound of the river. I would recommend hiring a car to get the most out of your trip. Lots of beautiful beaches close by and a 30/40 min drive (if i remember rightly) to Monacco for some serious shops and sites. A visit to the small village of Pigna (12 century) is a must and be sure to stop for a drink at the bar on the hill. A great market on the beachfront at Bordigherra & some lovely restaurants. A walkers paradise. You have no choice but to unwind & relax in this atmosphere.
