What a beautiful location & authentic Italian village experience!

  • 5 of 5

From the rustic, yet super comfortable farmhouse building to the rolling hills and village bells, this is an experience far removed from the tourist trail. But, if you have access to a car, the delights of Pisa, Florence, Cinque Terra and many more attractions are within easy reach. If you have a large car (as our family of 6 did!) leave the car in the nearby car park, as access is via some very narrow lanes.

Grazia is a wonderful host. Communicating with her was easy; and she has video directions for how to get to the property. She gave us lots of local tips for where to go & what to do in the area.

The house is large, with plenty of comfortable beds & multiple bathrooms. There is access to a washing machine & sunshine for getting some holiday laundry done. The pool is enticing & our boys also enjoyed the table tennis! If you have a sense of adventure & enjoy accomodation that feels genuine, this is the place for you.

Amazing 400 year old farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

Our host was amazing and very welcoming. The drive into the property is a bit daunting. We were told we'd need a small car or a good Italian driver!!!! The first time in was a bit scary in our medium sized car but after that no problem. The house has everything you need and plenty of space. It was pretty cool cooking pasta and looking out across the valley to the mountains we later discovered was full of the marble Michelangelo used for his statues. I cannot recommend it enough. We will be back.

Lovely location, lovely owner!

  • 5 of 5

From our first contact, the owner was extremely friendly and helpful - even down to sending accurate directions to the property including a video, which was useful as the property is tucked away at the edge of the village. The approach around narrow streets and tight turns is a little alarming the first time, but you soon get used to it and it is all worthwhile once you arrive. The location means that there are stunning views and it is a peaceful spot. The owner was on hand to greet us when we arrived. We were also given some very good advice about the local area and places to visit. We were impressed with the accommodation, both in terms of layout, equipment and cleanliness. The only complaint is the lack of a coffee table in the lounge! Plenty of outside seating though, so that is a minor issue. The village is charming and has a lovely atmosphere, not very touristy, and the locals were friendly. The pizzeria is recommended and you can get a great croissant at the bar.

Beautifully appointed and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The very first thought I had as I drove up the windy narrow Italian roads was that I wished I had a smaller car. However, the drive was well worth it, and Grazia's directions for the GPS and video for landmarks were all very helpful. If you do find yourself leaving town a different way or crossing a very narrow bridge near a barbwire fence...TURN BACK. That is a road where there are places two cars cannot pass and backing up or down the hill is not easy, especially if you are not used to a clutch or it is nighttime. Take heed!

I was working in Massa/Carrara and my friends enjoyed taking the train to Cinque Terra. The property was convenient to do both with short drives to each location. The wifi worked well. The kitchen was awesome to cook in. We planned to use the wood fire pizza oven, but did not have the time. Furniture was comfortable. Area is safe. View is lovely. I can't say more. This is a gem of a place, Grazia and Marcello are very helpful and responsive hosts.

Amazing views, gorgeous house and a wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Grazia´s house is gorgeous - everything you could hope for on an Italian holiday. The decor is rustic, cozy and clean with marble countertops and dark wood furniture. All the beds were comfortable and all the windows were covered by mosquito nets to keep the bugs out. The kitchen is big and well stocked. Grazia told us that the house was originally from the 1600´s!

The views are magnificent and beautiful, especially from the pool, where you can lounge and relax in natural salt water: paradise! There is a pergola at the back of the house set under a kiwi tree for shade, which includes an outdoor grill and a table for 6 people. In front is a large terrace where we eat most of our meals under the shade of trees. There are beautiful views from all locations, it doesn’t matter where you sit. The property is huge, so you have absolute privacy.

Grazia was one the most friendly, attentive and helpful hosts I’ve met. She gave us so much during our stay, and helped us so many times, we are very thankful to her. We enjoyed meeting her friends and family and our daughters played with her daughter very often and had great fun feeding the horses, playing with the dogs and swimming in the pool.

The road leading to the house is very small and tricky to maneuver so we most often parked up above in the public parking area, but that wasn’t a problem. Ask Grazia for directions, as the house isn’t easy to find the first time - I would suggest arriving in daylight, not at night.

We took 2 amazing private boat trips with Grazia´s husband, as he offers individual tours for guests. We swam in turquoise lagoons, and explored distant sandy beaches and got to see Cinque Terre from the water - we even stoped for drinks at Vernazza and chatted with the locals. As evening set in, we sailed over to Portovenere where we watched the Madonna Bianca Festival from the water. During the festival, the entire fishing village is lit up with over 2000 roman torches. I will never forget this beautiful experience.

I can also suggest eating at the pizzeria in the tiny village centre (Osteria delle Pietre). Not only is the pizza the best I’ve ever had, but its very charming to sit in the tiny, historic Italian village center.

All in all, it was one of the best vacations we’ve had. Absolutely perfect! Thank you Grazia!

Car: recommended

After arriving in the village of Vezzano Ligure (Vezzano Basso) - crazy Regina Margherita, you enter the house in Liguria through a short, narrow and typical street Ligurian, bounded by other stone walls.

After passing through a wrought iron gate, along a path bordered on one side by tall cypress trees that end in the yard.

The guests of the house should definitely visit over the 5 terre (Riomaggiore, Manarola, Vernazza, Corniglia and Monterosso), also Lerici, Tellaro, Sarzana, Portovenere and the island Palmaria, or the Versilia, with Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi, Lunigiana with their castles and the Apuan Alps, as well as cities such as Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Genoa.

These places can be reached by train or, to the seaside resorts, by sea from La Spezia, a few miles away and reachable by bus.

For those who love sports, in Lerici you can play golf in a welcoming and cured structure with private parking; the court may instead be practiced in a circle or in Lerici Ameglia.

For those who love horse riding, the owners are happy to introduce guests in the same building in Sarzana frequented by the family.

For guests who love good food, the owners recommend two rooms present a Vezzano where you can enjoy a tasty, authentic pizza or typical dishes of Liguria.
