Property description

Dear Guest,

We’re aware that you have many choices of where to stay and we appreciate that you’ve chosen Villa Valentina. You have our personal commitment and promise that we’ll do everything we can to make sure your stay with us is a most enjoyable and memorable one. We look forward to meeting and welcoming you to our beautiful part of the world.

Having a special place to stay during your travels, especially when far from home, can add so much to your vacation experience. For this reason, when you arrive at Villa Valentina, our desire and goal is for you to feel immediately at home. From our comfy furnishings to the smallest of details, you’ll be able to begin your vacation visiting the 5 Terre feeling relaxed, comfortable, and well-rested.

Ours is a beautiful and special region of Italy. We're fortunate to live here and we love sharing it with others. We'll be there to meet you whether you arrive by train or car - you can look forward to a welcome aperitivo, a freshly prepared snack with a bottle of wine enjoyed on one of the outdoor terraces. While you unwind we'll get you familiarized with your 'home away from home', the area and things to see and do.

Sincerely,
Paula, Angelo, & Valentina Benvenuto


VILLA VALENTINA

Villa Valentina is located in the beautiful seaside village of Levanto, the perfect base in which to explore the 5 Terre, as well as other villages along the stunning Ligurian coast.

Situated between Monterosso al Mare (5 Terre) and Bonassola, Levanto offers its visitors a vast array of things to see and do. You’ll have several good restaurants to choose from and a lovely town center for walking and shopping. The large sandy beach with its protected bay is one of the most beautiful on the coast.

This town was voted as one of Italy’s top seaside resorts thanks to the quality of its sea, the artistic and environmental heritage, quality of services, and cultural activities. With its old world charm, Levanto continues to lead as a village concerned about retaining its strong history, while supporting quality tourism and the natural balance of Nature.

Villa Valentina is newly constructed with all new furnishings and amenities of the highest quality. The apartment is light and airy and decorated tastefully with quality always in mind. We are located just a few minutes from the train station, beach and downtown area.

There is a large creek fed by mountain springs on two sides. Our only neighbor is a frantoio (olive oil press) that operates in the winter months only so you’re guaranteed a quiet and restful stay.

Our garden is a communal area, and we think you will enjoy this aspect of your stay. Under the gazebo & wisteria there is an outdoor eating area with table, chairs and a Weber gas barbecue for our guests use. You're welcome to collect fresh eggs from our on-site chicken coop, organic tomatoes when in season and any of the fresh herbs around the property.

GETTING AROUND:

Should you arrive by car we have plenty of free parking as well as a guest parking pass which allows you to park in Levanto as a resident, mostly for free--you can leave your car at the train station all day (free of charge) while exploring the area.

We provide bicycles for your use during your stay—Levanto is, for the most part flat terrain which makes it great for riding a bici (bicycle). It’s a fun way to do your shopping or to explore the area—like the locals do.

Parking is a challenge in 5 Terre. For this reason we would recommend exploring the area by train or ferry boat rather than a car. It’s easy, convenient, and will save you a lot of stress. Cinque Terre (Monterosso al Mare) by train takes only 4 minutes. By boat ferry or car it takes 15 minutes. The ferry boat goes to Monterosso, Vernazza, Manarola, Riomaggiore and Portovenere.

Train Station: A 10-minute walk from VV or a few minutes by car or bicycle. With the parking pass we provide you can park all day for free.

Beach: 5 minutes by car, 15 minutes by bicycle.

Villa Valentina is located in the beautiful seaside village of Levanto, gateway to the Cinque Terre. Levanto is the perfect base from which to explore the Cinque Terre, as well as other villages along the stunning Ligurian coast. Levanto is surrounded by beautiful mountains, features a wonderful historical center and a fantastic beach, all this and only a 4-minute train ride to the Cinque Terre! Levanto is still a destination mainly visited by Europeans, which means you will have the experience of being off the well-beaten tourist path and yet you will have easy access to everything.
