About Barbara Cerchi

My name is barbara and my roots are well entrenched in Pitelli that, although administratively is a fraction of La Spezia, it's actually a pretty village perched on a hill less than 7 km from the city center.

I like dancing, skiing and sailing.

Barbara Cerchi purchased this apartment in 1900

Why Barbara Cerchi chose La Spezia

The house of my grandparents, where I spent many summers of my childhood, is situated at the entrance of the old village, on the square where the bus linking it to downtown stop.

I restored it and I decided to accommodate people who appreciate our land and want to spend some nice days to visit our beautiful surroundings.

Grandfather that inspired the name of the house ( "A Cà der Nòno" in the local dialect means "The House of the Grandfather"), it was actually my great-grandfather, who was a shoemaker in Pitelli in the 50s.

He left us before I was born, but Minerva, my great-grandmother that I knew as a child, talked so much about him that it seems to me that I knew him.

I wanted to dedicate this house to him, which here has worked and lived for many years, because he was a special person, lovable and full of zest for life, that everyone in the country loved and who is still remembered by old people in the village. From their stories I seem to see him while sitting at his working banquet in the doorway of his shop created and resoled shoes and, in the moments of rest, he played on his guitar the songs sung by my grandmother.

What makes this apartment unique

The house is a small jewel, recently renovated and with a small garden where you can have breakfast and, on summer evenings, take shelter from the heat of the city.

Per una vacanza rilassante e comoda

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati ospiti di Barbara dal 29 aprile al 1 maggio. L'appartamento si compone di soggionro con angolo cottura, camera e Bagno (oltre a splendido giardinetto esterno).

L'accoglienza che ci hanno riservato i genitori di Barbara è stata cordialissima. Ci hanno regaloto un cesto con prodotti tipici locali e ci hanno anche dato numerose delucidazioni su come poter visitare al meglio le Cinque Terre. L'appartamento è molto confortevole, attrezzatissimo e pulitissimo. Comodo perché dista pochi chilometri da La Spezia da dove partono i treni per visitare comodamente le Cinque Terre. La vacanza è stata all'insegna del relax e della comodità. Lo consigliamo vivamente.

Avevamo apprezzato via foto l'appartamento di Barbara ma la realtà ha quasi superato le nostre fantasie, Si tratta di un graziosissimo bilocale posizionato strategicamente rispetto a La Spezia. Super attrezzato, con bellissimo giardinetto e pulitissimo. I genitori di Barbara ci hanno riservato una calorosissima accoglienzadei con cadeau omaggio (prodotti tipici liguri) e indicazioni dettagliate sulle Cinque Terre. Una vacanza di relax che consigliamo vivamente a copie e famiglie.

A Cà der Nòno is located Pitelli, a small village near La Spezia offers the pleasure of experiencing the atmosphere of an ancient village without giving up the proximity advantages of the Gulf of Poets beaches and a city full of sights such as La Spice.

Pitelli is in a strategic position to visit the coast, the Cinque Terre to Versilia and the Ligurian hinterland. It is in fact located 6 km from Lerici, 25 km from Riomaggiore (the first of the Cinque Terre), 24 km away from Portovenere and 38 km away from Forte dei Marmi.

The beautiful promenade of La Spezia is only 7 km and can be reached in less than ten minutes' drive. From here, and from Lerici, ferries depart to reach, by sea, Porto Venere and Cinque Terre, easily reachable places by land, by car or by public transport.

If you love the sea, the beaches of San Terenzo filthy and offer the possibility to spend pleasant seaside holiday. The beach of "La Baia Blu" is only 2.5 kilometers, and if you like walking, you can reach it in less than 40 minutes.

If you appreciate the museum visits, La Spezia is home to important museums: the Lia Museum, which exhibits works of ancient art, medieval and modern; the Naval Museum, which documents "the technical development of construction of ships, weapons and vehicles used in activities and maritime war."

If you love the art cities, Florence, Pisa, Parma, Genoa and Lucca are easily accessible by car or train (the train station is 8 km away and has a convenient underground parking):

-Florence: 140 km on the highway or 2.5 hours by train from the central station of La Spezia

-Pisa: 68 km on the highway, or 1 hour by train from the central station of La Spezia

-Lucca: 68 km on the highway or two hours by train from the central station of La Spezia

-Parma: 123 km on the highway or two hours by train from the central station of La Spezia

-Genova: 118 km on the highway or 1.5 hours by train from the central station of La Spezia

If you love shopping, in Brugnato, which is 33 km on the highway, you can go shopping outlet "Shopinn".
