About The Experience
If a stay in a charming village near some of Italy’s most beautiful coast sounds like your kind of vacation, this is the villa for you. You can walk to a gorgeous beach or meander through the charming town of Lerici. Best of all, the famous UNESCO World Heritage towns of the Cinque Terre and Portovenere are accessible by ferry from Lerici. With comfortable furnishings and a small private pool overlooking the sea, this villa will be a great choice for a group of friends.
Location Description

This country villa is located in the Italian Riviera, in the residential community of Maralunga, overlooking the town and harbor of Lerici, as well as two small bays on the other side. The villa is about 50-60 meters above sea level, and faces one of these two quiet bays. The main road is 200 m away, and no traffic can be heard from the property. There is a 5-minute walk (800 meters) to the beaches, such as Lido, where you can rent umbrellas and chairs. There is a 10-15 minute walk (500 meters) to Lerici, where there are shops, restaurants, markets, two pharmacies, a post office and the harbor, and which can be reached also by car, though access is restricted in summer. The pedestrian pathway descends from the top of the promontory to the Lerici harbor, so it is a hilly descent and ascent.

Nearby Attractions: Portofino, Lucca, Forte dei Marmi (marble Fortress that is now a museum of satirical art, Wednesday market), Portovenere (Gothic church of St Peter from 1198, castle, Romanesque church of St Lawrence from 1098), Cinque Terre, La Spezia, Lerici (shops, restaurants, harbor, ferry).
Lerici is connected to La Spezia and other nearby places by bus. There is a bus stop 100 m from the villa; buses offer service to the town of Lerici and the beaches of Tellaro and Fiascherino. Situated along the Golfodei Poeti, Lerici is great for people watching and coastline gazing. There’s a charming harbor in the town that you can walk along, and a ferry can take you to Portovenere or to the Cinque Terre. The center of Portovenere has a waterfront shopping area, restaurants, and ferry services to other neighboring towns. Many locals come here, so you’ll be witness to a true view of Italian life. Other day trips include Portofino, Forte dei Marmi, and Lucca. The nearest autostrada exit is Sarzana, which is about 7 km from the property.

Overall:
The villa was very nice.
Enjoyed Most:
The view. Three bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. Lovely pool and patios. Stefania, the caretaker, was very nice.
Enjoyed Least:
There was only room for one car. The villa sleeps 8 so we had two cars; we had to pay for the second spot. As stated in the description there are indeed 14 steps down to the villa and a flight of travertine stairs down to the sleeping area. There are also steep metal stairs from the parking garage up to the villa. It was difficult with luggage and older folks would not be able to handle it.
Surrounding Area:
Cinque Terre. Lerici was a very convenient home base to the autostrada and boats to Porto Venere.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Lerici. Yes, it was within walking distance and bigger than expected. But the walk down is long, steep, and challenging. Only for fit people.
Tips or Restaurants:
Food in Lerici is great but you had better like seafood. Almost every restaurant is primarily seafood. Make reservations. Enjoy the Cinque Terre white wines.
Directions:
GPS was a must.
