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.

We had a fantastic holiday. However I would totally reiterate all the other reviews in that it was very very hot and with no air con or fans it was difficult. You can't leave the windows open as it is noisy and mosquitoes come in so the heat was unbearable. I know it was August and a holiday weekend in Italy so this is not the fault of apartment owners but please be aware it is very lively at night! This did not bother us as we were 4 adults and we will return to this amazing place but probably not in the middle of August. Also, as already mentioned perhaps more equipment in the kitchen. There is no bread knife and plastic glasses for wine/prosecco. This is still a wonderful place to stay and I would recommend it but the whole point of reviews is to give a true picture.

The very nice newly installed pool really made it, with plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas. The owner was very pleasant and discreet but was available if needed.

The apartment was spacious, very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Lovely outside area to eat with great views of Diano Marina. The new pool was wonderful too with more amazing views out to sea. The owners were extremely friendly. We will definitely return.
