Welcome to the website of Teré, your home away from home in the uniquely Ligurian village of Ceriana. Located just a short drive from Sanremo in the province of Imperia, at Teré we look forward to offering you a warm welcome and making sure you have a great time discovering the pine forests, chestnut woods, vineyards, and olive groves of the upper Armea Valley. We have six rooms to choose from (four triples, two singles), each one with its own bathroom and shower.
Ceriana is the ideal base for sampling traditional Ligurian delicacies, especially the local Ceriana sausage, Taggiasca extra virgin olive oil, our famous dried tomatoes, Moscatello di Taggia wine, and a delicious ice-cream from Pellegrin. There’s simply no better place for a relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle, and your daily routine!
With its narrow streets, squares, and steep pathways, visiting Ceriana is like taking a step back to the Middle Ages or, perhaps, into some tranquil oasis. And in summer, it’s as if the whole village has natural air-conditioning!
With its huge network of trails, tracks, fire-breaks, and paths, all just waiting to be discovered, and with the sea on one side and the towering peaks of the Maritime Alps on the other, Ceriana is also a paradise for cyclists and hikers.
Known as Il paese che canta (the town that sings), Ceriana is home to the “choral drone bass,” a singing style introduced to the world by American ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax and a centuries-old tradition that’s handed down here from father to son. Every party and family get-together is an excuse to sing the local folk songs, including songs that were composed right here in the valley. Ceriana also has a long tradition for sacred music – Misereres, Alma Contemplas, Stabat Maters, and so on – which are performed every Holy Week by local brotherhoods. (link)
In the early 1900s, Signora Teresa rented rooms to travelers who were passing through the village and needed a place to stay. Her kindness and courtesy won them over, and she became known in the valley as “Teré, the Landlady of Ceriana.”
Our comfortable, homey rooms take their names from the local fauna. Each one has free Wi-Fi, a flat screen TV, a private bathroom with shower, and standard Italian 220V three-pin electrical sockets (round pins). We regret that we are unable to provide guest parking.

CERIANA: A TASTE OF MAGIC
Ceriana is a medieval village with a magical, ancient feel. It’s built on a series of concentric rings around the hill and surrounded by green countryside. A stay here makes you feel like you’ve stepped back in time to a past of sacred music, ancient rituals, and delicious local dishes, whose recipes have been handed down through the ages.
Teré’s six rooms each have free Wi-Fi, a flat screen TV, a private bathroom with shower, standard Italian 220V three-pin electrical sockets (round pins), wardrobe, heating, and a balcony with views across the valley and mountains.

A HIKER’S PARADISE
Although it’s just a short distance from the sea, Ceriana is immersed in green countryside. Surrounded by olive groves, vineyards, orchards, and centuries-old forests, the village is a mecca for hikers. The local trails were recently signposted by a local volunteer association. Plus, thanks to contributions from private sponsors, including Affittacamere Terè, the local council has published a detailed hiking map of the area. Using this invaluable guide (download the PDF here), it’s now easier than ever to plan your hiking trip in the green oasis of Ceriana. The map features the five main local trails, guiding hikers to Monte Neveira, Passo del Merlo, Cima Furché, San Giovanni di Ceriana, and many other attractions. Ceriana is also the end (or the beginning, depending on which way you’re going) of the third stage, Dolceacqua–Ceriana, of the Sentiero Balcone hiking trail.
Most of the trails and all the roads here are suitable for mountain bikers of every skill level, family outings, and adrenaline-pumping workouts. On request, Affittacamere Teré can organize excursions with nature or local guides for individuals and small groups. In collaboration with Riviera dei Fiori Outdoor (http://www.rivieradeifiorioutdoor.it), we can also recommend mountain bike and snorkeling excursions. Rental of various kinds of outdoor equipment can be arranged.
