Additional Location Information

The village of Badalucco has ancient origins. The first Romans settled here around 181 BC, but according to fossils dating back to the Neolithic age discovered at the nearby Bertand Cave, the area had been ihnabited long before. Badalucco was built perched on a hill, in a typical Medieval fashion and was anciently surrounded by thick stone walls with five gated portals. The old part of the village is a fascinating and intricate array of "Carugi" (narrow cobbled lanes) flanked by tall stone buildings with porticos, sculpted portals, vaulted ceilings and slate roofs: a play field for those with an eye for the perfect photograph! Many of the facades on these old buildings are decorated with colourful murals, works of art, bas-reliefs, sculptures and pottery making the village known as "paese dipinto" (the painted village).

The Valle Argentina is one of Liguria's best kept secrets. Situated only 10 minutes drive away from the coast, here you will find unspoiled landscapes with river streams, chestnut woods, olive groves, vineyards, ancient traditions and most of all tranquillity; a perfect destinations of those seeking alternative tourism destinations and holidays off the beaten track. My apartment is right at the beginning of the village and you will find public free parking on the opposite bank of the river, only 2 min walk away. Nearby are grocery shops, butcheries, bakeries, a dry cleaner's, hairdressers, an art gallery, bars, restaurants or pizzerias proposing local cuisine and a couple of olive oil refinery plants: these are open to the public and sell superb genuine local produce.

Badalucco can be reached by public transport - buses can be picked up at Taggia Arma railway station - however, I recommend that you come by car. The bus service is comfortable but sporadic. A car would allow you the freedom to visit the beaches at your pleasure and to discover the other villages of our awesome valley. The Argentina Valley stretches all the way up to Realdo, situated 1010 m above sea level. It is a real paradise for lovers of outdoor activities and photography. The river offers natural basins carved amongst the rocks, often hidden and secluded, which are a magnificent environment for fresh water swimming and some bird watching. The beautiful hills and mountains surrounding of our valley are also ideal for hiking and mountain biking.

Besides the nearby beaches on the coastal area of the Riviera dei Fiori, from Badalucco the most famous locations of the French Riviera (Monaco, Nice, Cannes, Antibes, Villefranche ect) are also within easy reach. If you fancy driving a bit further on the A10 Motorway you can reach Genova and the famous Cinque Terre villages within 2 and a half hours.

Milan - 3 hours (279 km)
Nice International airport - 1 hour (80 Km)
Principality of Monaco - 45 mins (45 km)
Sanremo - 20 mins. (20 km)
Taggia Arma - Train station and beaches - 15 min (10km)
