Residence sul Borgo is a true holiday treat: There are 14 attractive apartments housed in a residence dating from the 1600's with a swimming pool, and it is just 150 metres away from Finalborgo's charming medieval town centre. Also, the sandy beach, the promenade and the train station in Finale Ligure are only approx. 1 ½ miles away.
- The medieval town of Finalborgo has long been included in the prestigious list I borghi più belli d'Italia. A path leads directly to the old town from the residence and within a five minutes' walk you will find yourself in the midst of a historic pedestrian environment with a dozen restaurants and pizzerias to choose from. The first part of the trail is private and ends at a small plateau where families can safely leave pushchairs. At this point there is an electronic gate allowing access for guests only(guests are supplied with a code), and then approx. 18 steps followed by 100 m of easier sloping path without steps. The last approx. 30 m before reaching the gate are without pavements.
It is very remarkable to have access to a swimming pool and be right next door to a historic downtown. You can relax at the pool where you will find sun loungers, parasols, a Jacuzzi corner, showers and plenty of space on the sun terraces. Other useful amenities include a common laundry with a dryer (for a fee), table tennis, two communal barbeques and parking. Parking is public but it is a dead end street and there is usually space for everyone. The site also provides free bicycles and a bicycle workshop for guests. Remember however, that free rental bikes are often of a poor quality.
All apartments have satellite TV, air conditioning and a private outdoor area, which can be either a balcony, terrace, garden, porch or pergola - each with a view of Finalborgo. The apartments have either a kitchen or kitchenette, all with a fridge / freezer, oven and four ring gas hob. As the property is historic, the outdoor areas vary in size and style. There is Wi-Fi in all the apartments and in some public areas. Note that the classification of 3 ½ suns is primarily based on the swimming pool, terraces and the location right next to the Finalborgos old town - whereas the apartments alone are quite average.
