The property is surrounded by fields, vineyards, olive and cherry trees.

Here, in Framura, you can find signs of many different ages from the roman one to the medieval one and of course the modern one. the centre of the village is wonderful, with its small lanes, hidden gardens and terraces overlooking the sea. Furthermore in this beautiful location, you will find small and traditional food shops that sell all the typical local products.In the central Piazzetta there is a nice quiet bar where in the evening the inhabitants use to relax having a glass of wine and chatting while children play nearby.

To watch them floating away is really impressive. Many open air markets are held every day in this area. Additionally nearby there is the famous National Park of Cinque Terre where you will find many breathtaking paths and some of the most beautiful beaches in Italy. Moreover by boat or by train you can easily reach Portofino, Portovenere, Chiavari, Sestri Levante, Santa Margherita Ligure and Genoa with its museums, the famous aquarium, some UNESCO world heritage sites and a well known Opera House as well as the most fashionable shops. From here it will take just about two hours by train to reach Florence, Pisa, and less than an hour to reach Sarzana, a beautiful medieval town.

About Giulia Erluison

I am 53 years old and I live in a beautiful small village in Liguria called Framura, next to Cinque Terre, with my husband Guido, my daughter Giulia andour 3 dogs. About 12 years ago we built our house here and I decided to leave my job and start a new life keeping more in touch with nature. Nowadays we grow vegetables and we make honey, wine, and olive oil in a peaceful and unspoiled envairoment, with a particular attention to preserve our tradition.We have also built a completely ecologic guest-house to host people who loves sea and sun and choose a relaxing holiday in this wonderful area.

Giulia Erluison purchased this apartment in 1940

Why Giulia Erluison chose Framura

I had inherited this property by my grandparents and my husband and I built here our own house in 2001 when we decied to leave the town where I was born to raise our daughter in a more peaceful and uspoiled environment. five years ago we started building our new guesthouse,which is now finished, becuse we wanted to share the peace of this beautiful place with other people and we have chosen to build a house in wood, with solar and photovoltaic pannels so as to respect nature as much as possible. I absolutely love living here in fact this place is remotless from the crowds as well as easy to reach and walking around in the village it is still possible to fell the traditional italian welcoming and friendly atmosphere.

Best part of the trip!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from 10 days in Italy. There were may legs of this trip but the part to this region and staying at this house was our favorite! The hosts were so helpful and kind. We were given homemade jam and honey upon arrival and Lilly made us a wonderful meal of pesto and Gnocchi as "a welcome" gift. She sat with us and went over the local map and made sure we knew where we were going. The drive to the train to go to Cinque Terre was breath taking. The house was spotless and the craftsmanship of the woodwork in the home (doors, ceiling) was impressive. Such a peacful part of the country.

Beautiful Property. Wonderful and relaxing setting.

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely wonderful experience. Lilia was THE best hostess. Our 5 year old referred to her as "our sweet lady." She was so accommodating and helpful. She recommended great local locations that made us feel like locals. The property was beautiful and well maintained. It came with a jar of their local honey as well as some fruit marmalade which were both delicious. My only regret is not being able to enjoy the property more. Eating out on our personal patio table and relaxing in the serene setting would have been great. The absolute best part of this property is definitely Lilia though. She was full of local information and made sure we made it to and from the train station everyday. I will be staying here again if the opportunity presents itself.

We Loved Our Stay Here!

  • 5 of 5

Peace and quiet yet so close to Cinque Terra. Our farm stay with Lille was above expections. Our room was charming and Lille is such a wonderful person. She will answer all your questions. She speaks English. If you like to hike or bike, there is a one-of-a-kind tunnel that begins in Frumura and continues for miles along the coast. It's flat, no hills to climb. We took the train to the villages of Cinque Terra and paid 13 Euros for the entire day, exploring at our leisure. Would come back to her farm again on any future trip.

High expectations exceeded!

  • 5 of 5

I read the reviews posted by others, so I knew before getting to Framura that this was going to be good; it was great. Lilia was so nice and inviting in her responses to my inquiries. She and Quido are so nice. The farm and the apartments are lovely. The apartment, one of six in a separate building from the farmhouse, is spacious, modern and very large. It would be fine for an extended stay. The hilly terrain is beautiful. Since we did not have a car, my only concern was about getting to the trains and back. Just as they said, they were happy to drop us off and arrange pickups. A few times they drove us to a village called Costa and we walked down to the train station or bike trail in Framura. This was a wonderful downhill walk that takes about 40 minutes and is very scenic. After travels to the Cinque Terre or Portofino, we would take the train back to Deiva Marina and call them. They would pick us up a local bar (Bar Serena), where we came to feel like regulars. Don't pass up the opportunity to have Lilia cook for you. The entrees she prepared were the equal of a fine restaurants. After full days of activity touring, hiking or biking, returning to the farm and apartment was perfect. What a nice counterpoint to the crowded Cinque Terre and the hustle-bustle of Rome and Florence. Lilia and Quido, thank you for your hospitality and a memorable stay in Framura. We wish you continued success with this fine example of agro-tourism.

Incredible week in a beautiful property ..Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This excellent property is like a B&B without the breakfast. The kitchen is well equipped to cook your own! The hosts speak English and are extremely hospitable. Upon arrival we had a canister of coffee, delicious focaccia, fresh vegetables and some spices, home-made honey and jam. They go out of their way to make your stay incredible. The room has everything you need for comfort and the outside has plenty of spots to relax after your day of activity. The area is beautiful, away from the tourist crowds, and welcomes you home. We drove to Devia Marina to take the train to Cinque Terre, easy parking and good grocery shopping. We also had fun in the small market (walkable) in Castagnola, the darling village of Setta, and the beach at Bonassola. So much to do in close proximity. If you have any reservations about choosing this property. There is absolutely no reason to be concerned.

Perfect Honeymoon Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I don’t even know where to begin. My new husband and I spent half of our honeymoon split between two of Lilia and Guido’s properties along the Italian coast. Our relationship with Lilia began about 9 months prior to our visit: she was an absolute pleasure to work with and, though we decided to book right away, she graciously provided guidance throughout the months leading up to our stay. Upon our arrival, it was immediately clear that we had made the right decision. The accommodations were beautiful and comfortable, and the location could not have been more picturesque. We didn’t take advantage of Lilia’s homemade meals, but were treated to pesto, homegrown veggies and honey from their farm. Lilia, Guido and Guilia were such generous hosts—full of helpful information, always willing to lend a hand or offer a ride, and were simply a pleasure to spend time with. We loved the close proximity to the Cinque Terre, but found that we enjoyed the surrounding areas very much, too! We found ourselves very emotional to be leaving on our final day, but are sure we will find ourselves in Italy AND staying with Lilia again one day! Be sure to consider their Portofino property, too—you won’t be disappointed!
