Capomele Pinamare residential resort

The Capomele Pinamare residential resort

The Capomele Pinamare (literally Seapine Applecape) residential resort is an enchanting green area perched on the cape. The quiet streets lined with trees give access to the villas and apartments. The weather is surprisingly good all year round. The photos you are looking were snapped between January 1-4 2000, in the coldest season in Europe, yet as you can see it looks like spring.

Nice and Montecarlo are resp. 80 and 70 km away (48 and 42 miles) and can be reached in less than one hour by motorway.  You could swim and have lunch in Montecarlo, shop in Nice in the afternoon, and be back for dinner in one of the many cozy restaurants on the Italian coast near home.

Portofino and the Cinque Terre are at two hours drive in the opposite direction. Florence, Pisa and Siena are at three
hours drive.

Genoa Republic watchtower

The weather is warm also in winter. In summer, when it stifling hot in the rest of Italy, the Riviera, and particularly Capomele, is just warm, fresh and airy. The air of the Riviera is famous for being balsamic, with flowers' scent all year round.

At the top of the cape, at only 200 meters (220 yds) from Via Soprana, one can reach through a path the ridge of the cape (left photo), ending with a Genoa Republic medieval watchtower.

The ridge and the watchtower, have been used since ancient times as watch point of the Italian Riviera.

East view from the ridge: bays of Laigueglia, Alassio, Albenga, Gallinara island,  Loano, Pietra Ligure.
Pass the mouse along the coast (and the island), and click on the links: you will go to the pages presenting the locations.

In fact from the ridge one can see on one side (East - top photo) the bays of Laigueglia, Alassio, Albenga, Loano, Pietra Ligure (on clear days one can see many other bays, up to Genoa). On the other side (west - right photo) one can see the bay of Andora, ending with Mimose Cape. On clear days, also Corsica can be seen. And this is not all you see: if you turn behind, you can see also the Maritime Alps covered with snow! The photos below will show you all this.

Mind you, these are not postcards! They are normal photos, and what human eyes can see is actually much better.
Moreover, apart from the panoramic photo, they were snapped in January, the coldest period of the year (unfortunately it is only time of the year in which we have some tome to snap photos). You can hence see that the weather in the Riviera is nice all year round). In Spring, Summer, and Fall, you simply have more vivid colours, more flowers, and of course more birds and butterflies, with the creak of crickets as background sound.

Closer view: the Maritime Alps and Stellanello

If from the ridge one looks towards the inland, and not towards the see, the snow covered Maritime Alps appear with their majestic undulated profile. In the left photo you can see a wider photo including the valley behind Andora, where the river with the same name flows, and with the village Stellanello at its end. In the right photo you can see a closer view of Stellanello, of the Andora river, and of the Maritime Alps.
