  • Extremely Impressed

    "Overall we were extremely impressed by the apartment we booked. The rooms were light and airy and the apartment was very well equipped. Everything worked as we expected it to and we had no problems with any aspect of the apartment. We very much appreciated being met at the apartment and being shown how everything worked. The greeter was extremely helpful and friendly. He recommended places to eat, sights to visit as well as telling us about the apartment. The location was good in terms of getting to the underground (a 10 min walk) which enabled us to travel around Rome. There were shops and restaurants in the surrounding area which we found useful. we particularly enjoyed eating at the Pizzeria Bella Napoli which was only a few minutes walk from the apartment. I would certainly recommend Italy Perfect to friends and if we travel to Italy again we will certainly look to use Italy Perfect again"

  • Unforgettable

    "This is a special house that is meticulously clean and beautifully appointed. Everything is as pictured, but no picture can record the intangibles about this property. It has been lived in by people who love it and is greater than the sum of its parts. If you love art, color, and living in the clouds this is the place for you. La Torre is high above the valley with a stunning view of Spoleto across the gorge. I rented for two weeks and had two friends join me for nine days. It was perfect for the three of us as house is on three levels with a good bit of privacy. I also felt safe on the days that i was there alone. There is a hot tub surrounded on two sides by rosemary and lavender cascading down the wall. There is always room on the terrace for visitors, dinner, or just relaxing. Be ready to climb a bit but we all stayed without a car as Spoleto is only a 20 minute walk through the woods and across the aquaduct. In addition to art, there is a dwindling collection of CDs with includes John Coltrane's Coltrane Plays the Blues. Every evening we would pop in the music and watch the clouds shift and occasional rain on the horizon, on top of the world in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Be ready to walk and climb, there is a lot to see and do in every direction. The driveway is a challenge that I did not face as we walked down to the train station almost every day to head out to neighboring hill towns."

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.
