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.

The villa is on an elevation with a beautiful view over the Sea. You can reach the beach going down stairs (the way up might for some be a bit of a climb), from where you can then reach Spotorno, which has plenty of restaurants. The beaches are a mix between public and places where you have to pay for a chair etc. Our son did a diving course nearby which was nice. Renting a sailing boat unfortunately is not possible at one of the sailing clubs. The broader environment has much to offer in terms of smaller villages to visit or the larger town of Genova (60 KM). The villa is spacious and is laid out over two floors; it has a large balcony on the front overlooking the swimming pool, whilst the kitchen in the back. There is also a well-functioning BBQ set up in the garden. The large and well maintained swimming pool is one level lower. The owners reside from time to time in an apartment on the lower level without disturbing your privacy and whilst doing some gardening and maintenance. The owning couple is actually very friendly and helpful, doing everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Overall this was a very nice holiday and one of the better places we rented, so a genuine 5 star rating!
