  • Perfection!!

    "Staying at this Villa for 7 days was the ending of our travels through Europe for the month. What a beautiful and relaxing way to wrap up our holiday. I chose this Villa based on the consistency of the 5 star reviews. I have never seen that level of consistent high ratings before so I was prepared for less than 5 star experience, however, I was so wrong. I was pleasantly surprised to find that all reviews were spot on!! The villa was immaculate upon arrival and exactly as advertised on the website. The property is very pretty and quiet, just as shown in the photos on this site. We took many walks to the small town of Citta della Pieve where we enjoyed friendly warm and welcoming individuals, excellent meals, and of course Gelato. This town is a charming quintessential small Italian town. In the evenings it comes alive with people who obviously know each other and fill the streets with laughter. You are enveloped in the feeling of a small art community with deep roots and historic tales to tell. Jacopo has his own line of wine and olive oil from his property which we imbibed and enjoyed nightly…. He leaves wine and olive oil in the Villa and operates on the "honor system". We commented nightly how amazed we were comparing his 8 Euro bottle of wine to our $30 wine bottle purchases in the states. Such a treat! Another review commented on lack of music options and I second that comment. Maybe Jacopo would consider adding a music option to the Villa. There is a lovely simplicity to the grounds. Every morning the pool and grounds are cleaned so you arise to a fresh sparkling environment each day. And while Jacopo is on site every day to attend to these enhancements, he is ultra-respectful of your privacy - most of the time he comes and goes without you being aware of his presence. The Villa is tranquil and quiet at night and in the early morning. We slept with windows open every night and rested to the subtle sounds of crickets and light breezes through the valley. The main views from the house offer only olive groves and Umbrian hillsides. There is a resident fox who visited us each evening as we enjoyed the outside dining area. We were shocked at the fox’s comfort in our company. Spending a week in an Italian Villa has been on my bucket list for years. This Villa met every detail of my imagined experience when I created my bucket list."

  • Enchanting Seaside Village

    "My husband, three teenage daughters, and I spent three relaxing days at Sylvia's flat. We scrambled up and down Camogli's cobbled hillside paths, stopping often for a picture or just to enjoy the breathtaking views. We loved wandering by the sea, swimming in the stunningly turquoise water or grabbing delicious focaccia, pizza, and (of course) gelato from a seaside shop. The apartment was charming and perfectly located for exploring the Cinque Terra region. The pool in the complex was a plus. Driving and parking are tricky, but once established we got all over using buses and feet. This stop was a highlight on our amazing Italian adventure. We hope to return soon!"

Liguria Travel Tips

The region of Liguria stretches west along the Italian Riviera from the French border eastwards to La Spezia. It is one of Italy’s smallest regions yet it is packed full of delightful towns, harbors, rocky coves and more glamorous resorts. At the foot of the mountains, lemon trees, almonds, herbs, flowers and olive groves set a truly Italian landscape. Picturesque ports such as Portofino and Lerici were once popular with artists and writers such as Yeats, Shelley and D.H. Lawrence. The area now caters to a wider class of visitors, particularly around the Cinque Terre region to the east. Cinque Terre means the “Five Lands.” The main city in Liguria is Genoa and a day trip to this classy city should not be missed.

Liguria Italy Vacation Rentals Offer Charming Accommodations

The very best way to experience the culture and spirit of Italy is to rent a vacation home in one of the delightful seaside resorts. Surrounded by local crafts, antique furnishings and lavender-scented bed linen, it is easy to fit into the mood and ambience of Liguria when you are part of the local setting. Far less dull than staying in a chain hotel, an Italian villa gives you all the space and freedom you need to do what you like and make your own memories. Use your vacation home as a base for exploring the area, and take the opportunity to dine out in local trattorias on the local produce.

Major Attractions in the Liguria Region

One of the most popular attractions for visitors to the Liguria area is the Via Dell’Amore. These trails, through some of the most breathtaking scenery, are so popular that a Cinque Terre Pass must be purchased to pay for the upkeep of the historic pathways. Portovenere is a delightful destination with hiking trails and can be reached by boat from Lerici. A quieter area is the Gulf of Poets, around La Spezia.

The locally produced food is a big attraction and part of the pleasure of a Liguria vacation. Try the local tagliatelle, served with a choice of sauces flavored with the local pesto. Prawns, anchovies, mussels and calamari are just some of the local seafood which must be sampled. The local vineyards produce fine wines to accompany your meal. For dessert, the gelato ice cream is legendary!

Things to do From Your Liguria Italy Accommodations

Hiking is probably the #1 activity in this idyllic area but road trips and boat trips are also great ways to enjoy the scenery. From the beaches, sailing, swimming and snorkeling can be enjoyed along with windsurfing and other watersports. Cycling and mountain biking are challenging to all but the fittest. Local towns provide plenty of shopping, churches and museums for visiting.

Major Towns and Cities in Liguria

Home to the renowned explorer, Christopher Columbus, Genoa is Italy’s most important port. It is also a genteel and historic city with narrow streets and plazas lined with historic palazzos, churches, galleries and theaters. Portofino is an exclusive resort town whose harbor is crammed with luxury yachts during the summer months. San Remo, in the west, is a smart resort with a beautiful beach lined with stuccoed mansions. Cervo is one of the prettiest sea-front towns with narrow streets leading up to the San Giovanni Battista. Finally, La Spezia is the rocky coastline along which the Cinque Terre villages cling, linked only by footpaths and steps.

Getting to the Liguria Italy Villas and Getting Around

The main airport serving the Liguria region is the Cristoforo Colombo International Airport at Genoa. There are many international flights daily to and from Genoa. The area is also easy to get around by train. With such great views, it is almost a shame to drive so sit back and enjoy the rural scenery through the train windows. There is an express train from Genoa to La Spezia or you can take the slower "regionale” train. Boats run between the coastal resorts and are relaxing ways to get around. Those staying in Cinque Terre will find that a car is not much use in the narrow pedestrianized streets.
