Leaf detail for Apricus Locanda  Boutique Hotel

A unique boutique hotel in the medieval village of Apricale, Liguria

Apricus boutique hotel is situated at the foot of the medieval village Apricale, within the hills of the Nervia Valley where you'll find olive groves, rivers, waterfalls and medieval hilltop villages where time stands still.


Unspoiled nature, complete silence, (except for a concert of frogs now and then) is what you can find here - possibly the most perfect "away from it all" destination for a relaxing break.

And all just 20 minutes from the Mediterranean coast at Ventimiglia and Bordighera and within a short drive of the French Riviera, Monaco and the Cote d’ Azur.


Newly renovated and expanded in 2022, Apricus looks forward to welcome old friends and new explorers to Apricale this year.

Now with 11 brand new rooms and suites, secluded sun terraces, a new hotel bar and a wellness suite, we are pleased to be emerging from two very tough years of lockdown with a new and refreshed experience waiting for you.
