in a fantastic medieval village
“The Corsars of Coral” is a 60 sqm apartment, on the first floor of a historic building, in the hearth of the medieval village of Cervo.
It is composed of a large living room with kitchen area, a double bedroom and two single beds in the living room.
It can sleep up to 4 people .
Breathtaking sea-view from all windows.
Small panoramic terrace over the Golfo Dianese from one side, and over the bell tower of Church of Corallini. Table and chairs for al fresco breakfasts.
From the windows, enjoy one of the most charming panoramas of “Riviera Ligure di Ponente”: the Mediterranean Sea that seems to enter the house from every window, the hill of Capo Berta that delimits the beautiful “Golfo Dianese”, and the profile of Corsica Island, that can be spotted in the morning and at sunset, especially on a clear day.
▪ IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE LOCATION:
Please note that the apartment is located inside the medieval walls, so it is not possible to reach directly by car!
But the seaview and the breeze are worth the small effort…
▪ PARKING AREAS:
The house is 200m from the main entrance arch (which is to the north, uphill from the house).
From the parking areas, located just above the village, you must walk down the typical Ligurian alleys (carruggi) for about 250/300 meters, depending on the parking.
There are both free and paid parking areas.
Beaches can be reached on foot, walking down the unique “carruggi” of the village.
The closest beaches are around 250 meters away, but please note that there are some stairs and a downhill path.
“Porteghetto” beach is around 500m (you need to exit from the door “Porta Canarda”, then walk down the staircase and get the underpass beneath the abandoned railway.)
In Cervo you can choose between free and private beaches.
• Free/public beaches are usually rocky or with pebbles, excellent for swimming and snorkeling. Some examples:
- “Porteghetto” (rocky beach: one half is free, the other half is a private beach).
- “Ciappellette” (rocky beach, free, great for snorkeling).
- “Marina de Re”: free-equipped beach, pebbles.
- A large free beach next to “Marina de Re”
- For your four-legged friends: beach for dogs near “Marina de Re”!

The jambs of the entrance portal, in black stone from Lavagna, still show the original graffiti from 17th century with writings and drawings of the boats that sailed the Mediterranean, and the “Lavorerio”, the tool needed by the “Corallini” for fishing for the precious “red gold”.
A fascinating story...
The accommodation is located in the center of the medieval village of Cervo, on the first floor of a wing of palace Multedo, a local noble family, owners of coral fishing boats on the coasts of nearby Corsica.
Known for being devoted to literature and science, Multedo family was however suspected of not delivering all the coral they caught to the Republic of Genoa, of which Cervo was a vassal.
Until the last century, it was believed that the house hid a treasure, the result of that illegal trafficking...
The research and the legend only ceased around the 1950s.
Something really precious and unique, however, is still in the house.
The jambs of the entrance portal, in black Lavagna stone, still show the original 17th century graffiti, with writings and drawings of the boats that sailed the Mediterranean, and the “Lavorerio”, the tool needed by the “Corallini” for fishing for the precious “red gold”.
As evidence of the medieval origin of the town, the foundations of the house rest on two stone arches in the Gothic style that are still well preserved.
