We loved the location overlooking a lovely square. The square was busy with locals and would be buzzy late into the evening which we did not mind. The landlord responded quickly on the 2 occasions we needed him. The accomodation was clean and comfortable. The apartment is very close to the station and restaurants. In our view it was best to stay in La Spazia rather than in one of the villages. Visiting the villages was easy by train. We would stay there again.
Short drive from Genoa airport (just over an hour). The apartment is situated in a villa up a tarmaced but steep, winding and uneven road (the turning is easily missed!). There are one or two houses nearby but it feels well off the beaten track - fabulous view from our very large verandah. The apartment is very well appointed - American Style fridge freezer with ice maker, induction hob, two lovely bathrooms and separate toilet. The beds are big and comfortable and the rooms are good sizes with hanging space. It was spotlessly clean. Joke - the owners rep was helpful and welcoming. The pool is quite small but otherwise excellent. The insect life was abundant in August - so be prepared to take the usual precautions! Lerici is a very pleasant harbour - with lots of restaurants. As you would expect the beaches are crowded and car access is restricted. Great country along the headland and further down the coast although this too was crowded. Best place we found was Savana - lovely town - Theatre Cafe did amazing cocktails served with copious amounts of "nibbles", lots of good restaurants, and was away from the crowds. Also made use of the good rail links from La Spezia - an hours trip to Pisa - and so cheap! Plus train ride to Cinque Terre - best way to avoid congested roads we were told. Also lots of boat trips/ferries from Lerici. Would like to visit off season to spend more time at the summer hotspots. Overall lovely relaxing break before our second week in the much quieter Asti region.
