One of Italy's smallest regions, Liguria, known as the Riviera dei Fiori, and located in stretches west in a narrow ribbon along the coast from the French border. Mountains separate it from Piedmont to the north, Emilia Romagna to the east and Tuscany to the south. Even if you've never been there, you've probably seen its northeastern border in all those movies where glamorous jet setters hop into their sports cars and motor from Monte Carlo to Rome.
Liguria is a land of contrasts, home to belle epoque seaside resort towns in the style of Cannes and Monaco. Its spectacular coastline has many sandy strands, rocky coves and pebbly beaches, famous ports, as well as desolate stretches where lush forests of lemon trees, herbs, flowers, almonds and pines send forth heady sweet-smelling breezes. Imagine relaxing at your own Liguria property and soaking up the art, culture and climate that this area offers. Terraced hillsides produce an olive oil that is considered more delicate than those grown in Tuscany.
The Italian Riviera is renowned in Italy for its superb climate. The weather avoids the suffocating heat of the Southern Mediterranean in the summer months whilst retaining a warm and constantly sunny winter climate in the winter, encircled by the Maritime Alps which rise from the sea. Adverse weather conditions pass through the high mountains behind and the zone remains untouched by the freezing Mistral winds. This is, therefore, a highly desirable place to buy Liguria property as a holiday home or a permanent residence.
