Original customs house transformed into luxury apartments RealPoint Property are now pleased to bring to the market ‘Roja Valley’ a unique refurbishment from an original customs house marking the French/Italian border into 10 luxury appointed apartments.

Roja Valley apartments are situated in Liguria on the outskirts of the ancient village of Airole, some eight miles inland. The medieval village of Airole clings to a rocky outcrop on the eastern valley wall. A charming settlement of some 600 people, it offers narrow winding streets with a typical Italian atmosphere and has a selection of shops, restaurants and bars. At the pinnacle of the village is wonderfully ornate church offering a virtually uninterrupted 360 degree vista of the valley’s below. The town of Ventimiglia is nearby which provides direct access to the main trans-Riviera motorway, running from Nice to beyond Genoa and Monte Carlo is just 20 miles west from here.

Eddy Crompton, Director of RealPoint property says, “It is hard to imagine an area richer in its diversity of scenery, culture and activities. With the coast nearby, visitors can sample the beautiful rocky coastline and sandy beaches of the Italian Riviera and the equally beautiful but more cosmopolitan French Cote d’Azur with its many famous resorts. There are numerous water sports available, sea fishing is particularly good in this region and the area between Nice and Genoa is designated as a National Marine Park, with trips to see whales, dolphins and porpoises available.”

Roja Valley provides 10 apartments of various sizes and design on four floors. Each apartment offers spacious living accommodation with kitchen area, fitted bathrooms, balcony and wonderful views over the picturesque river valley. Roja Valley is set in extensive landscaped gardens, with river frontage and two sandy beach areas developed for relaxation areas, along with a communal swimming pool. The development is approached via remote controlled gates which are operated via a video security system.

Prices start from just £149,000.

RealPoint Property markets a wide range of properties throughout Italy and offers a personalised service to all potential buyers, speaking in English and advising clients every step of the way.
