About the property

You won't want to leave this Spacious Historic Home and Priv

Welcome to L'Uccelliera, the Birdhouse.

You will never want to leave this special place.

The villa, once a modest farmhouse from the 1800's, has been lovingly preserved, yet transformed into a spacious and comfortable retreat.

The lush grounds, along with the stunning views from every direction are awe inspiring.

L'Uccelliera is up hill, situated between the historical center of Monterosso and the newer part of town called Fegina.

It is this unique vantage point that allows for sweeping views like no other.

Look to the East and see of a complete view of the entire 5 Terre coastline.

Look to the West and see Punta Mesco, a large forested hill and beyond.

This position gives you a show of nature in all her glory, from the suns' first rays at sunrise, to the last glimmers of light at sunset, the views are magnificent and always changing.

There is a true 360° view of what makes up the famous 5 Terre National Park, from every direction you look, a wonder.

The private grounds of L'Uccelliera provide incomparable, vast outdoor space.

Enjoy your own private 'PARK' resplendant with cypress and pine trees, lemon, olive and fig trees, a riot of color

of flowering trees, shrubs, herbs and flowers.

Take your time to explore your own hill, the vineyard below and the surrounding areas in complete privacy, a welcome change from the often crowded village.

There are separate dining and lounging areas positioned to take full advantage of the views.

There is built-in seating of natural stone, along with assorted tables, chairs, lounge chairs, umbrellas-everything you need to enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

The house itself sits on 4 levels, 3 of which are liveable space along with a below ground level cantina or storage area.

There are both inner and outer staircases for easy accessibility to the whole house.

The villa features a total of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

There are two full size living areas, dining area and fully

equipped eat-in kitchen along with three terraces.

The ground level has 2 ample sized bedrooms, one with

fixed queen size bed and en suite, the other with 2 twin size bed or one queen.

Both have windows with views of the charming garden.

There are 2 full bathrooms on the ground level.

Then take either the inner spiral staircase or outer stairs to the next floor where you will find a spacious open-plan living and dining area. Two large sofas, lots of room for relaxing as well as a unique wooden circular dining table.

The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped with every modern convenience, cookware, appliances, etc. Everything you need to make a simple snack to a gourmet meal. A large table in the middle offers more dining space. There is lots of natural light from the many windows and like the rest of the house wonderful views.

Yet another staircase leads to the next floor where you will find another living area with it's own terrace and two other bedrooms, 1 with full size bed with french doors leading to its' own private terrace. The other with twin size bed ( with additional trundle bed). Both upper bedrooms have stunning views of L'Uccelieras' vineyards below to the sea in front and of the

old village of Monterosso.

There is also another full bathroom on this floor.

The home is full of character, tastefully decorated with modern comfortable furnishings, family antiques, original artwork and local craftwork.

L'Uccelliera has been featured in well known design magazines.

The entire home is bright, cheery and immaculately maintained.

We provide high quality bed, bath linens with toiletries, as well as basic kitchen pantry items.

Grocery delivery service is available as well as additional housecleaning.

L'Uccelliera is a HOME in every sense for you to enjoy and make your own.

An exceptional choice for couples, families, groups, special occasions-anyone desiring quiet, privacy and an unforgettable experience.

An ideal location if you come by car, you can drive right up to the property-not a common convenience in the 5 Terre.

The property is gated with on site parking for security and privacy and enough space for multiple vehicles.

The location is private but not isolated, the village of Monterosso is not far away.

The Monterosso train station is a short ride by cab. There is a paved road as well as your choice of 4 scenic walking trails that leads you right to the beach, shops,

restaurants, the train, on the 'newer' side of town, or to the historical village of Monterosso all within 10-15 minutes by foot.

For your arrival we provide a personal welcome, a full orientation of the area, it's features and activities, and are happy to assist you in any way to make your stay at L'Uccelliera enjoyable and unforgettable.

House and property filled with gorgeous views and character

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property. The town was more crowded and tourist filled than we had imagined, but this house and property were an oasis--quiet, nestled in the vineyard hills and lemon groves, near a great winery and a beautiful cemetery, and accessible to both the old and new towns of Monterrosso (albeit a steep walk). We loved sitting outdoors on the terrace and outside, as well as in the kitchen and living rooms which have many windows reflecting the hills and sea. Daniella and her husband were wonderful--very nice, responsive, informative, accommodating.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This lovely villa on the hill was the perfect place to stay to enjoy all of Cinque Terre. We had easy access to both new and old Monterosso with a 10 minute walk down (yes, then back up) the hill. The grounds were lovely- peaceful and full of flowers and lemon trees. Perfect for quiet reflection or an al fresco dinner on the patio. The kitchen was well-appointed and well-stocked. Our host, Daniella, supplied us with our requested groceries and we also engaged her and her husband to prepare an Italian welcome dinner for us on our arrival. The Villa was roomy, comfortably sleeping five of us and everything we needed was right there. The groundskeeper kindly brought us a bag of freshly picked lemons from the property and we enjoyed a most delicious lemonade. We couldn't more highly recommend this property. It far exceeded any hotel we might have chosen. Don't miss it!

Mountain Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

L'Uccelliera (the Birdcage) was a mountain paradise. My two sisters, myself and our husbands stayed in the Birdcage for nine days. We were surrounded by lemon trees, fig trees, olive trees, cypress trees and the list goes on and on. The views were 360 degrees of wonderment. You could see the cities of Cinque Terre on one side, the Mediterranean right in front of you as well as the mountains. The grounds were so large that we had our own park and caretaker on the property.

Danielle, our host, was extremely helpful. On arrival she stayed with us to explain everything about the house as well as the area. She even asked us if we wanted, she would come to show us the town. Many times during our vacation, we called her for advice and her response was always very helpful. She told us of restaurants, tours and cities to visit. Danielle made everything easy.

We travel a lot and rent houses in many different countries and this one had to be the best.

Thank you, Ann Marie A.

The fabulous Birdhouse

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 singles travelling to Italy for the first time and we enjoyed our stay very much and didn't want to leave. The house, grounds and views were spectacular! The hosts treated us like old friends, they even provided a basket of goodies on arrival We cooked in one night and took advantage of the fresh lemons. It was a great time. The recommendations for food and drink were great. Thank you very much for your generosity and warmth. Until next time... :)

Living Inside a Postcard!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three glorious days at the best location possible in Montarosso al Mare. The house is absolutely beautiful and the grounds are like having your own personal park. The views in all directions include the sea, mountains and several of the other towns of the Cinque Terre. The lemon trees on the grounds were in full bloom and there was a bowl full left for us to use during our stay. Daniella and Piero, the property managers, were delightful, providing us with many recommendations and were very responsive to any questions we had. Grazie! We hated to leave and hope to return for a longer stay in the future.

Italian Villa Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a home away from home. It felt like an old friend was welcoming us to a new home. And when we toured the home and property, we found it far exceeded all of our expectations. The grounds are amazing (including lemon trees that provided delicious lemonade); the home was cleaner than clean and complete with just about everything you could possible need. Our hostess even brought in our first grocery order so there was wine and cheese waiting for us on our arrival.

The town of Monterosso al Mare (old and new) was fun to explore with great local food and wine.

The train was an easy way to get to other towns and while it was challenging for us, we so enjoyed the hike from Vernazza to Corniglia...the views were beyond comparison.

We would highly recommend this home and this area for a completely relaxing holiday.
