Why Laurence Relton chose Lerici
This apartment is very special to me (and almost everyone else who visits). The private garden is rare given that the apartment is in the historic centre of San Terenzo. The location is superb: a quiet, pedestrian street (in terms of peace, much better than being on the Seafront), local shops, supermarkets, 15 restaurants and bars, 4 coffee shops all within 5 minutes' walk. And the beach is just 90 seconds' away. Also, as a spot to visit the Cinque Terre, it's perfcet: you can get to the Cinque Terre by boat, by car or bus/train, and you avoid staying in the maelstrom that can be the Cinque Terre.
What makes this Apartment unique
The building hails from the 16th Century. The apartment combines original features (exposed brick archway and detailing) with modern comforts and design. The Garden provides tranquillity and privacy, particulalry during the busier months of Summer.

Eine sehr schöne, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtete, großzügige Wohnung, ideal gelegen, nur wenige Schritte vom Strand, sehr ruhig, mit einem wunderschönen kleinen Garten - wir wollen nächstes Jahr wieder kommen.
Nice, comfortable apartment with a small, but lovely garden.
We are so glad we stayed in San Terranzo instead of the Cinque Terra which is incredibly commercial and crowded. Instead, we were in a small town with friendly people and delightful restaurants. With a 20 minute walk you can get to the ferry which will take you on a beautiful trip to the other towns. This is the area that the English poets, Shelley and Byron chose to stay and there is a small park named after Shelley in town.
Beautiful town, lovely apartment
Lovely apartment, well equipped with everything you need. Helpful owners and staff. 2 minutes from seafront. Would definitely use again.
A Great Place and a Great Location
This property was exactly as described and just steps away from great beaches in San Terenzo. It was very clean and equipped with high quality furniture and appliances and kitchen ware. Monia, the manager, was extremely helpful and responded very quickly and effectively to all of our requests. It is further from the Cinque Terre villages than we expected and taking the 30 minute ferry ride to them is quite expensive, especially for us Canadians. However we did find a much cheaper alternative by taking the bus to La Spezia and then the train to Cinque Terre.
Pleasant apartment in the lovely village of San Terenzo only yards from the sea.
This modern apartment was well furnished and with a very comfortable bed, only yards from the sea and local bars and restaurants but in a delightful small Italian town. Very little English spoken but locals very eager to help. The larger and more touristy town of Lerici only 3k scenic seafront walk away where boats leave for the Cinque Terre on a regular basis. Buses to La Spezia run frequently as they do in the other direction to Sazana.
A small enclosed garden comes with the apartment, furnished with new loungers, table and chairs. The apartment manager Monia speaks English and is very helpful.
Perfect location! Perfect holiday town, with sandy beach, warm water, very few foreign tourists, no overcrowding like Cinque Terre. The apartment is modern and well equipped. The lovely, big garden is unfortunately mosquito infested, so out of bounds.
San Terenzo is an unspoilt, idyllic sea side village, with public and private beaches, and an assortment of fantastic restaurants. It's a 40 minute boat ride to the Cinque Terre, and a great base to explore some of Italy's most beautiful cities, including Pisa, Lucca, Florence and Siena. Locally you'll find flood lit tennis, a nine hole golf course, motor boat rental to explore the nearby islands and coves, as well as hiking. biking, sailing and horse riding. So you can keep busy, or do nothing in the privacy of your own garden.
