Make a holiday rental home or apartment in La Spezia, Italy your home away from home

The province of La Spezia is a beautiful region of Liguria in Northern Italy. The province is home to many wonderful traffic free villages perching on any flat land between the sea and the hills, often clinging to sheer cliffs. Any tourist information about La Spezia will confirm its suitability as a truly romantic escape from the rigours of modern life. Taking a La Spezia apartment is perfect for those looking to escape to a glorious beach resort, sample authentic Italian life and walk in unrivalled scenery.

Things to do in La Spezia, Italy

The Cinque Terre is an 18km stretch of staggering rocky coastline in the La Spezia province which attracts discerning tourists from around the world. La Spezia holidays along the Cinque Terre revolve around strenuous hiking, swimming in the Monterosso Bay and drinking full bodied red wines which are produced in the region, all complimented perfectly by an atmosphere of peace and quiet. There are many excellent walking and hiking trails, some of which are old mule tracks dating back many centuries. The Cinque Terre is so unique that it has been named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The coastline is a real attraction in summer. Far from the baying crowds of tourists familiar to those who have visited the nearby Italian cities or the French Riviera, the beaches of La Spezia remain quiet and picturesque. With such clear, warm waters lapping the shore, swimming, snorkelling and just relaxing on the beaches are a genuine delight.

Places to visit on holiday in La Spezia, Italy

The capital of the province and namesake, La Spezia, is an ancient town which nestles between the coast and the towering hills. It is wonderfully connected to all the attractions of the province, and is the perfect location to take a La Spezia apartment, especially if this is your first holiday in the area.

Lerici is a wonderfully romantic destination, with exquisite villas, beaches and gardens, surrounded by stunning scenery. Throughout the town are a number of excellent restaurants and bars too, making Lerici a perfect destination for a holiday at any time of year.

The medieval town of Sarazana is dominated by an incredibly robust castle, the Medici Fortress, which is worth visiting from any holiday rental villa or apartment in La Spezia. Nearby, Varese Ligure has also got a huge amount to offer tourists in the way of ancient architecture and has wonderful cheese markets.

Manarola is an amazing town which clings gamely to the rocks of the La Spezia coastline. Impossible to reach with a car, Manarola is a wonderfully peaceful place to escape to, reached only by bridle path from Palaedro or Corniglia.

Weather in La Spezia, Italy

In the main summer months (July and August), La Spezia becomes incredibly hot, with monthly averages reaching almost 30°C and daily peaks routinely reaching into the high 30’s (°C). This means that the long evenings are beautifully warm, making dinner outside on the balcony of a La Spezia apartment or villa a wonderful option, drinking local wine, eating local food and watching blazing sunsets over almost indescribable scenery. In winter, temperatures remain remarkably mild, with monthly averages in December and January remaining above 10°C.

Travel to La Spezia, Italy

Both Pisa International Airport (PSA) and Milan Parma Airport (PMF) are within 50km of a holiday rental in La Spezia. Reaching your La Spezia apartment or villa from either airport is usually fairly straightforward, but as some parts of the province are very remote, you are advised to ask the home owner for the best method of reaching your accommodation.

                                                            Lovely little studio, very homely. Great location.

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            We arrived on Christmas eve, and received a very warm welcome! We enjoyed the house very much - it was well equipped, clean, warm, and really homely - there were so many nice touches (old furniture, good quality bedding, stereo system etc), which made us feel at home straight away. We could cook full meals, and just hang out in the house... but the location is really the best feature. We loved discovering the little footpaths down into Lerici, and walking around the town and the surrounding area (neighbouring villages of Tellaro and San Terenzo are lovely) where there are plenty of restaurants, shops, bars, a fish market and very friendly locals (who are generally really helpful, whether you speak Italian or not!). The public transport was really regular, even over Christmas, so we could get about without needing our car much at all. There was so much to see and do within less than an hour's journey (the Cinque Terre for example) that we could have stayed for 2,3,4 weeks and still have seen something new every day! So, we'd certainly recommend it. Francesco was so helpful and informative before our arrival and during our stay - answering questions quickly and patiently - a very generous, warm, helpful host.

                                                            Large attic apartment near the sea and church

                                                            4 of 5
                                                            The property is in a splendid position near the church and the apartment had a lot of good points- Good water supply and drainage, excellent washing machine and relatively comfortable beds. Access to the property was up two flights of steep, very worn down stone steps and the attic bedrooms have another set of slate steps. There were also some serious maintenance issues which I tried to sort out with the local agency but they were very off hand and uninterested. I will list the items which need attention to bring this lovely property up to a decent state for, what is quite an expensive, holiday let. A pane of glass was missing from a bedroom window and a pane cracked in another window. This meant that street noise and mosquitos came in freely. The agent said this was to be fixed but nothing was done during our week there. A further window problem was lack of blind to the roof skylight over the stairs which made the flat very hot in the sun. The apartment was advertised as fitting 9 people but there was only enough cutlery for 6 and there was rather poor kitchen equipment- handles broken from the coffee pots and frying pan and no kettle. There were a minimum of thin towels provided and no kitchen towel. Many of the light bulbs did not work and a black standard light was broken. The two electric fans were broken and the downstairs lavatory door would not shut or lock. There were loose floor tiles at the bottom of the stairs and by the bedroom door and the floors were not clean on arrival. The fridge was not really working and needed defrosting. I hope these problems will be sorted out for later visitors to the property. A more polite and sympathetic attitude from the agency staff would also be appreciated. We have rented property from Home Away many times before and I have never found it necessary to complain before.
