Bed and Breakfast La Terrazza dei Pelargoni is situated in the medieval heart of Ventimiglia, an ancient cross-roads and obligatory stopping point for travellers from Liguria to Provence and on the Salt Route to Piedmont.

Important monuments which characterise Ventimiglia Alta include the Romanesque Cathedral and church of San Michele; the church of San Giovanni; the Oratory of the Black Confraternity; the convent church of San Antonio the Abbot, in baroque style; the church of San Francesco, originally in Gothic style and later converted to the baroque; the Parliament loggia a public building dating from the 15th C; the aristocratic palazzi in Via Garibaldi, enriched in the 16th and 17th C with hanging gardens a unique Ligurian urban feature; the 16thC Genoese town wall that still almost completely surrounds the present day historic centre, and traces of an earlier medieval wall.

The house faces the Roya river and enjoys a calm and sunny position. From the terrace you can admire the coast, from the mouth of the river as far as Cape Ampelio (Bordighera), and the beautiful mountains which are a feature of the upper Roya Valley.

Guests can enjoy a spacious living room complete with fire-place, and the terrace which boasts a fine collection of botanic pelargonium. By prior arrangement it is also possible to use the kitchen.
