Pompeiana set back from the Ligurian coastal towns. Here at 200 metres above sea level there is a fine view of the sea, the mountain slopes and the seaside resort of Riva Ligure. Pompeiana is a typical medieval village built on terraces on the Ligurian hillsides. With Monte San Bernardo in the background, the town sheltered, and this favourable location means that it benefits from a cooling breeze in the summer, whilst the climate in the winter months remain mild.
In Pompeiana you can find both tennis courts, a post office, a pharmacy, a bar and two restaurants, so despite its small size, the town has all the necessities and the weekly market day is Tuesday - until noon. In addition it is only approx. 3 km to Castellaro Golf Resort with a 9 hole golf course.
The bathing options are good: approx. 1 km from Pompeiana via a small path that goes through an olive grove, you come to a natural lake where the water is clear and inviting for a swim. The beaches of Riva Ligure (pebble) are approx. 4km away but only approx. 2km away on foot. If you want nicer beaches with sand, you can visit the neighbouring town of Arma di Taggia (about 7 km by car or approx. 5 km by foot).
