Make a holiday rental home or villa in Varese Ligure, Italy your home away from home

At just 70km from Genoa and less than three hours drive of the French border, Varese Ligure is a well-positioned destination near the beautiful south coast of Italy. Despite its close proximity to big cities, however, you should not be confused into thinking that Varese Ligure is a busy tourist town. It is in fact a small, rural village hidden away in the masses of dense forest that dominate the Liguria region, making it in ideal hideaway for those seeking a relaxing break.

Things to do in Varese Ligure, Italy

Peace and tranquillity are big priorities in Varese Ligure, with the village ticked away in the lush forest that covers the region. Many visitors head to this rural part of Italy simply to unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet of their holiday or apartment, making the most of their new-found surroundings.

The town itself is dotted with red-roofed buildings, many of which house traditional business purveying local produce. Cheeses are especially important in this part of Italy, and you can consume these with any combination of the crusty breads, hand-made pastas and delicious wines also sold in the village. Tuesday is market day in Varese Ligure, and the place to purchase fresh fish and much more, but a number of restaurants can also be found in the village centre, should you prefer to let someone do the cooking for you.

The Alta Val di Vara National Park is just a short distance from Varese Ligure, and is another destination where you can enjoy the natural surroundings and get away from the hustle and bustle of city living. Walking, hiking and horse riding are just some of the activities on offer here, with a number of well laid-out tracks to follow.

Just one suggestion for a day trip is to make the short journey to the coast at the attractive old town of Levanto (36km).

Lovely villa, furnished and equipped to a very high standard in a lovely, peaceful location

5 of 5
This villa is beautiful. It is in a lovely location which is very peaceful and secluded. We loved the outdoor area with the swimming pool, hot tub and outdoor kitchen. We had great fun with the pizza oven and enjoyed eating in the different areas provided. It was also fun watching the family of wild boar that visited every evening! The villa is equipped to a very high standard and was very clean when we arrived. There wasn't anything missing that we felt we needed. We came here to celebrate our joint 60th birthdays with our children and their partners. Everyone came away saying that it was one of the best holidays that we'd had and the memories would last forever

Perfect Position

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Luigi's home in Monterosso. 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.
