  • Magnificent Villa

    "My husband, 7 year old daughter and I just returned from a 2 week trip to Italy, with the final week being spent in the gorgeous Villa Maggiano. The house and the views are drop dead gorgeous and it has all the charm you would expect of a country villa plus a number of well thought out amenities, including an infinity pool that overlooks the port of La Spezia. Here is the practical breakdown: The location is a great home base to visit many areas from Portovenere, the Cinque Terre, Portofino and even as far as Florence. For foodies there are options that are short drive away that we enjoyed greatly, including markets and local restaurant options. Having spent the previous week in 2 other rentals, I really appreciated the layout and equipment of the kitchen. The house is solid and well appointed. The electrical, water and wifi are very modern and very much appreciated for those who technology is important. Two or possibly three of the bedrooms had king sized beds and the sheets and pillows were all of good quality. The views are the real star here - I took more pictures of the house and the views than anything else on our whole trip. The owner was very helpful with recommendations for food and trips, and helped us set up an amazing private cruise in the Ligurian Sea. She was attentive and we honestly felt that she was concerned that we enjoy our stay. She's a native English speaker so communication for us was easy. I read the review of the guests who stayed right before us and feel that I should share some opinions there as well. They complained of insects and an uncared and out of date house. Yes, there are insects. But you're out in the country surrounded by an olive grove and nature. In the entire week there we saw a few spiders, but nothing that would not be normal in any place in a location like this. We kept the doors and windows open for the great breezes (although all bedrooms had air conditioners) so we did get the occasional fly, mosquito or wasp. But again, nothing unusual or unexpected about this. I would recommend that if you are a insectiphobe, that in general you should not be looking at a country villa. We did not find anything to be outdated or run down. A few tips: Rent a car. You could do this without a car, but it would be a lot more difficult. There are 3 stories so it may not be great for very small children or elderly. I highly recommend this as a vacation rental and would, and likely will, stay there again."
