- About The Experience
Ideal for a family or intimate group of friends, this quiet and private hilltop house is part of a complex surrounded by olive trees and splashed with Mediterranean sun. Guests can enjoy the views while lounging under an elegant poolside cabana, dine alfresco under shade trees, or head out to explore the beauty of nearby Tuscany and the Italian Riviera’s Cinque Terre.
- Location Description
Set atop a quiet hill located close to the highway near the village of Ceparana, the house is a perfect base for touring the entire Italian Riviera, as well as other locations in Tuscany. Ceparana has supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, gyms, pizzerias and restaurants, and can be reached by car, bus or on foot along a quiet road shared with vehicles. The nearby town of La Spezia, in the Liguria region, is home to churches, museums, a castle, and a notable antiques fair, as well as a train that goes to the Cinque Terre and its famous hiking trails. Portovenere, a charming coastal town, is only 20 km away. The center of Portovenere has a waterfront shopping area, restaurants and ferry services to other neighboring towns. Many locals come here, so you’ll get a true view of Italian life. Of course you’ll also want to enjoy the beaches at L’Arenella, Royal and L’Olivo.
