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.

It really is a wonderful place with fantastic views of the sea and the harbour. It is tastefully decorated and well-equipped and everything was exactly as described. Andrea and Lara are lovely people and provided some very useful advice and suggestions for visits during our stay. We used the bikes provided during our stay - the cycle track is wonderful! We cannot find any faults with the property and would highly recommend a stay here - you will not regret it!

From the outset we were made to feel very welcome by Luigi and Emily. They were friendly and helpful, giving us plenty of useful information. The setting was perfect: near enough to enjoy the lively atmosphere and beaches of Monterosso without needing a car, and yet so peaceful and secluded up in the hills, with magnificent views! We hope to be able to return one day as there is still so much to see and do. Thank you, so much for making us feel so "at home". Grazie per tutto! Michelle, Steve and friends.
