Make a holiday rental, apartment or villa in Liguria your home away from home

Liguria is one of Italy’s smallest regions, a strip running along the coast from France to La Spezia. Liguria, despite its size, has provided many of the enduring images of Italy, having been used as a setting in many famous films. It is a region of contrast, from rich beach resort towns, rocky caves, desolate stretches of pebble beach, lush forests and groves and mountain terraces. This is a bustling land of contrasts, but whether your Liguria holiday villa is by the beach or on a mountainside, the experience will be fantastic.

Places to holiday in Liguria, Italy

There are four provinces in Liguria. A holiday rental in Liguria can be in either Imperia, Genoa, La Spezia or Savona, whose capital cities go by the same respective names. The region has a delightful mix of cultures, landscapes and cuisine, making a Liguria holiday rental in any of the four provinces mentioned an exciting way to investigate Italian Mediterranean culture.

Genoa province surrounds the city of Genoa, which is a huge attraction in its own right. It is a city of historic palazzo, fascinating museums and delightful restaurants, cafes and shops. Day trips into France or Monaco can easily be planned and enjoyed from a Liguria villa in Genoa, which can also be a magnificent base for walking in the beautiful hilled countryside of Liguria, or even as a base to enjoy the skiing in winter. The steep narrow streets leading up from the medieval town centre hide galleries of fine art and delicious delicacies.

Portofino is one of the most famous places on the coast of Liguria. It is a tiny picturesque harbour town famed for its elegance and charm. The Cinque Terre, or ‘five lands’ of La Spezia are a cluster of 5 stunningly beautiful villages on the rugged coastline, which have developed from fishing villages to one of Italy’s finest wine producers.

Imperia, the province bordering France is a magnificent maritime destination. A favourite with sea lovers, Imperia also has some fine monuments within its historic walls. The Cathedral of San Maurizio and Convent of Santa Clara are particularly worth visiting.

Things to do on holiday in Liguria, Italy

The region has a number of attractions. The skiing in winter and walking in summer make the mountainous regions very popular, and there are spectacular views to be enjoyed. The culture and history of Liguria also attract many visitors, but the culture, atmosphere and warm reception make a Liguria holiday rental villa a favourite spot to relax.

During the summer, Liguria transforms into a summer destination, offering swimming, sailing, mountain biking, climbing and fantastic fishing. There are also a number of large music festivals, accounting for every taste, from the Borgio Verezzi Summer Theatre Festival to the Cervo Chamber Music Festival and the Sanremo Italian Song Festival. Beach holidays in a Liguria villa are also very popular, as many of the local beaches have obtained the coveted European Blue Flag.

Apart from the beautiful city of Genoa, most of the attractions in Liguria are along the diverse coastline. This stretch of coast has been a tourist favourite with Italians for centuries, and the Riviera di Levante stretch is a beautiful chain of picturesque fishing villages and resorts.

Weather in Liguria, Italy

Liguria is blessed with a mild climate to be enjoyed from a Liguria apartment or holiday rental any time of the year. Winter temperatures are mild, hovering around the 10°C mark, but just inland in the mountains, temperatures drop significantly, making it a skiing destination.

Even better the 2nd time!

5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay so much last February ('16) that we returned again this year. We're beginning to feel like the Edwardians who overwintered every year in Sanremo - now there's a thought...

A very warm welcome

4 of 5
We arrived in the dark to be given a wonderful welcome. My wife and I were meeting up with daughter Polly who lives in Italy. This place is beautifully located and surrounded by moutains and olive trees and suited us perfectly. The appartment itself is made up of two rooms, kitchen/sitting/dining/two single beds in one and a double bedroom with en suite bathroom in the other. The walls in both rooms are covered with some very interesting artwork, perhaps not to everone's taste but hugely colourful! Our hosts could not have been more welcoming and helpful,,,,,we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
