The exchange in Alassio was one of the most memorable ...

The exchange in Alassio was one of the most memorable to-date, because of the house, the location, but also because of the most incredibly hospitable hosts and the extended Italian family. We stayed in Roberta's house in Alassio. The house is actually half of a villa on top of a hill, all of which is owned by Roberta's extended family - more than 50 members who have beautiful houses on the hill. The half of the house is very private, opens out on an amazing terrace with views over the sea, has access to a swimming pool which is only shared with the other family (Roberta's brother, his wife and any visiting members, such as a 2-year old lovely granddaughter). The house is very spacious, has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace, lounging by the pool, cooking meals in the well-stocked kitchen, and exploring Alassio and the surrounding towns. Honestly, it was quite hard to remove ourselves from the villa, it was just so gorgeous and relaxing, surrounded by lush greenery. Those more energetic amongst us made use of fitness equipment - there is a stationary bike, a treadmill, a punch bug, and a fully equipped gym that Roberta's brother built next to the house that he kindly let us use. Half the time we were alone in the whole area as nobody was in the other half of the house, and for a few days we would see the other family at the pool. They were incredibly kind, friendly and hospitable, and provided us with tips as to where to go and eat and what to do. They all spoke good English. Roberta arranged for someone to meet us in the house and left us a fully stocked fridge. When we left, we didn't even have to clean, as there is help. Roberta and her husband Alberto came down a few days later and stayed in a smaller house on the hill. It was great to meet them and, believe it or not, they took us sailing on their boat for a couple of hours. I will never forget this amazing exchange and the Italian warmth and hospitality.
