The
Experience

It’s a steep walk up stone paths – but that’s part of the charm of this tall, stone, blue-shuttered house at the top of the village. Its greatest charm is up more steps: a rooftop terrace, shaded by arches, with mesmerising views over olive groves to the sea. Breakfast here on Laura’s homemade bread and cakes, jams and local honey; come evening, drink in the sunsets. A beautifully uncomplicated house, the two light-filled bedrooms, with traditional tiled floors and shuttered windows, have their own charming sitting rooms. Furnishings are simple, prettily rustic and inviting: the views over tree-cloaked valleys to the sea, enchanting. Bathrooms sparkle with large showers and organic soaps. Well-travelled Laura is warm and open, with strong environmental principles, reflected in the house and food. Midway between hills and sea, you can hike, cycle, swim, explore ancient villages, take a dip in crystal-clear rivers. Or doze in a hammock in the garden, tumbling with roses, lavender and clematis. Buy a picnic (Dolcedo is 4.5km), pick fruit and tomatoes from the garden and eat under the garden’s olive trees. A simple charmer.

Reviews

Everything about this place is fantastic. Laura is lovely (v helpful in finding out about train times and prices for us). Couldn't recommend more highly. Beautifully restful place and garden. We also enjoyed an afternoon in Imperia 20 mins away but loved staying in the peace of Udadama. Lovely breakfasts. Really hospitable..

Laura really has a lovely place. My wife and I had a fabulous time there and could have spent the whole time in the roof loggia. Breakfasts were a real treat with cake cooked by Laura.

My partner and I had an idyllic five days at Ududema. Laura was so welcoming and we felt instantly relaxed. The B&B is beautifully decorated whilst retaining a rustic feel and breakfast was wonderful. The area provided lots to explore. The pools in the forest are a must and we enjoyed spending time an the lovely garden, but you don't need to go far up the coast to explore tumbling old mountain towns and sandy beaches. We'd love to visit again!

Katie, London

We liked everything! A very warm welcome and hosts that truly want to make you feel at home. The guesthouse itself is lovely, with great aesthetics and at the same time simple but elegant. The room was spacious and gorgeous with a magnificent view of the sea which is a bit further away. Breakfast served at the fabulous terrace, made up of homemade delicacies is one of the highlights! We loved our stay there, wish we could stay longer!

Ourania, Zurich

Beautiful location with stunning views. The building was lovely and full of charm. The roof terrace was delightful and the perfect place to relax. Laura is a wonderful host and provided us with a delicious, healthy and fresh breakfast.

Charlotte, Leeds

We had 3 unforgettable days in B&B Ududema. Everything was just perfect. Especially Laura, our host, the supernice house and the best breakfast ever will always stay in our memory. We will definitely come back.

Anja, Munich

Really loved our stay in this wonderful B&B with very nice, warm and helpful owner. A gem with beautiful interior, great view (even the sea is visible), in a picturesque and artistic area and a lot of space per guest in the rooms. The breakfast was served on the upper floor, partly open, for a cool breeze and stunning view. The food was tasty and extensive, with a smashing homemade cake and local products. Wish we could have stayed longer!

A highlight of our recent roadtrip was 3 nights spent at Ududemà. It’s close to Imperia, but feels like a world away. The house is in a small village above Dolcedo, in the olive groves with a view down the valley to the sea from the terrace - perfect for the delicious breakfasts. The house is charming & the room was cool & spacious. Laura made us feel very welcome. A memorable evening was spent in the garden sharing a table with our hosts; antipasti & home cooked pizzas; full moon rising over the hill; fireflies flickering around the garden, & songs of frogs & crickets. Quintessential Sawday.

This beautiful B&B lovingly restored by Laura and Guillermo is a fantastic place to start your exploration of Liguria. It is situated in a mountain village above the town Dulcedo famed for its different oils and picturesque setting. Ududema has all that you need for a fantastic stay. The rooms are very comfortable with spectacular views from bedroom and sitting room. The breakfast each morning is taken on the terrace overlooking the hillsides. The breakfasts are delicious changing daily with lovely touches of homemade food from Laura. Sometimes we wouldn't leave the breakfast for a couple of h

We stayed at Ududema at the end of June for three nights. It is a beautiful, peaceful spot nestled up in the hills. The rooms are really spacious, full of charm and thoughtful touches. Laura is warm and friendly and her breakfasts are delicious with an array of homemade jams, cakes and breads using locally sourced ingredients. You can enjoy it all from the lovely roof top terrace. We would highly recommend Ududema and would love to return one day in the future!

Amy, London

We spent three nights at Ududemà B&B in June 2016. We enjoyed the cosy and quiet place in the hills very much. Laura, the owner, was very pleasant and prepared daily fresh breakfast, that was delicious. Beaches are about 15 minutes by car. We recommand this B&B to everybody who wants to relax in Liguria.

Local points of interest from Laura Coppo

  • Jump in crystal clear water, in the sea or in the sweet water lakes you can reach from our place with a lovely walk. Or sail out to sea to see the whales and dolphins that populate this corner of the Mediterranean sea.
  • Explore the many pictoresque local villages: this area is full of small places full of charme, stunning architecture and amazing views over the sea and the hills. And then of course stop for a glass of chilled white wine!
  • Enjoy local food: stunning extra-virgin olive oil, fresh fish (you can also buy directly from fishermen), and many tasty, healthy wonderful dishes that you can find in a wide variety of traditional or modern restaurants.
  • Hike along ancient stone paths through olive groves, thick woodland or higher in the Maritime Alps, always with the sea in sight! And enjoy the beautiful colours and scents of local Mediterranean flowers and plants.
  • Join the local festivals that animate the Ligurian villages all through the Summer, sharing food and century old traditions with local people.
  • And after all this, relax in our beautiful garden, with a good book and a drink, or enjoy the sea-view from our roof-top terrace!
