Since the location is on the border of the countryside and the town, you have the best of both worlds here. You stay in a peaceful location, yet the town is just 1 km away.
So within a short walk or drive you can be on the seafront (which is a combination of sand and pebbles), and the area of Imperia called Oneglia. Here you will find a great selection of restaurants and shops, all used by the locals themselves since it is both a residential and tourist area. The old industrial port has been transformed into a picturesque promenade over recent years, now with a buzzing atmosphere and cosy eateries. Olive oil is produced at this agriturismo - which is a product that is greatly appreciated in this area. The neighbouring farmhouse Il Risveglio is also owned by the same people and here you can buy the very same olive oil to take home with you.

The pool certainly makes Zia Palmira interesting - and the few houses on the site mean that it is never over crowded. The large garden surrounding the pool is well kept, has plenty of green areas and is decorated with a fountain, and there is also an outdoor shower adjacent to the pool. The area is pretty quiet but at times there is some engine noise from cars passing on the bend of the road nearby. Zia Palmira is not an "agriturismo" in the classic sense. It is more like a set of apartments with less contact with the owners as oposed to a more rural setting with a community.
The house also has a small gymnasium inside if you feel the need to burn off some calories. Outside there is access to a barbeque grill so you can enjoy eating outdoors on the pleasant common terrace or on your own private terrace on a warm summer evening. There is free parking on site, but it is limited so only one space per apartment is allocated.
