We enjoyed staying in Mario and Anna Lisa's apartment. It was very well equipped and comfortable. Mario was very generous and gave us lifts to and from the property at the beginning and end of out stay as we had no car. We had no need to contact him during our stay but it was reassuring that they were next door in case of emergencies. Lerici is a wonderful base for exploring this beautiful region as we did by foot, bus, boat and train.
The only downside was the steep walk back up from the town after an evening out and, in late September, the outside area was not attractive for sitting or eating as it got no sun.
Short drive from Genoa airport (just over an hour). The apartment is situated in a villa up a tarmaced but steep, winding and uneven road (the turning is easily missed!). There are one or two houses nearby but it feels well off the beaten track - fabulous view from our very large verandah. The apartment is very well appointed - American Style fridge freezer with ice maker, induction hob, two lovely bathrooms and separate toilet. The beds are big and comfortable and the rooms are good sizes with hanging space. It was spotlessly clean. Joke - the owners rep was helpful and welcoming. The pool is quite small but otherwise excellent. The insect life was abundant in August - so be prepared to take the usual precautions! Lerici is a very pleasant harbour - with lots of restaurants. As you would expect the beaches are crowded and car access is restricted. Great country along the headland and further down the coast although this too was crowded. Best place we found was Savana - lovely town - Theatre Cafe did amazing cocktails served with copious amounts of "nibbles", lots of good restaurants, and was away from the crowds. Also made use of the good rail links from La Spezia - an hours trip to Pisa - and so cheap! Plus train ride to Cinque Terre - best way to avoid congested roads we were told. Also lots of boat trips/ferries from Lerici. Would like to visit off season to spend more time at the summer hotspots. Overall lovely relaxing break before our second week in the much quieter Asti region.
