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.

No need of a car as there is a boat trip to the other historic towns such as St. Margharitta, Portofino, St. Fructuoso. The property is self contained with a large balcony with a fantastic view of the city and the mountains around it. We had a comfortable stay and enjoyable holiday. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Would recommend this property.

                                                                                            4 of 5
                                                                                            There were 8 of us staying at Cipressa (3 generations) and we all had a great holiday. The house is large and comfortable, well equipped and very clean. The kitchen has everything you need to cook for a family. We particularly appreciated the lovely terraces, well equipped with tables for eating outside. The large tree provides welcome shade, and there is lots of space around the house with easy chairs for relaxing and enjoying the wonderful view. The swimming pool is better than it appears in the photos! It is such a lovely house and garden that it is tempting to do very little except relax in the garden with a book and a glass of wine! However, it is important to be aware that the house is built into the slope of a hill (which means there is a stunning view of the coast) but it also means that the ground is on different levels with steps and slopes unsuitable for very small children and anyone with mobility issues. To drive the car up to the parking area involves a very steep slope with a hazardous drop on one side, and this was the only difficulty we had with the house - and the only reason we awarded 4 stars instead of 5. The Aurelia (coast road) is very busy and we did not consider it safe to walk along (narrow with no footpath) although we note that no other guests mentioned that difficulty. Apart from that we would thoroughly recommend the house. San Lorenzo has amenities for a family holiday - a sandy beach (lovely for swimming) cafes/ ice creams, etc. We recommend the restaurant Antica Piazzetta. We also drove to San Remo and Imperia, - both easily accessible and worth visiting. In fact we all had such a good time we very much hope to return for another holiday.

It is well-equipped with aircon and wi-fi. The owners are very friendly and also extremely discreet. There to help if you have questions but not there when you just want space to yourselves. The pool also looks out over the great view and is similarly well equipped with a shaded seating area and high quality sunbeds. Villa Beatrice The Attic is high above Diano Marina up a small winding road (don't be deterred as it is an easy 5 minute drive back down to sea level) giving a great feeling of being away from it all.
