Gorgeous House!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, son, 10 year old granddaughter and myself had the privilege of staying in the BEAUTIFUL Villa Argia for a week in June!! The pictures really do not do it justice. We were greeted by the owners wonderful daughter-in-law, Teresa, who welcomed us with food and champagne. The house is quite large and elegant, yet cozy. The rooms are large and the grounds are truly spectacular. We swam in the pool, went to the beach, which is across the street from the villa, and walked through the town of Portovenere to shop, sight see and eat at the many restaurants. The tour of the Cinque Terre's was spectacular as well.

If you truly want to stay have a vacation to remember, Villa Argia is the place to stay. I look forward to many more trips and will take a lot more of my family.

Thanks Teresa!!!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in your home! Clean rooms with everything we needed for a fabulous holiday. The ocean was great to swim in along with the wonderful pool. The town was perfect very close walking to everything you would want to go. We could not have picked a better place. Thank you Teresa for your great hospitality.

A wonderful stay in a special place

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us recently stayed at Villa Argia for 5 nights at the end of May. I wish we could have stayed longer. The villa is better than it looks in the photos. It is an elegant home with high ceilings, marble and wood throughout, and surrounded by large terraced grounds, which are beautifully landscaped. It was easy to find, and we were warmly met by Francisco and Alexandra who easily checked us in. The villa is immaculately kept and very clean. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large (though one bedroom did not have a closet - it was not a problem). We also rented the pool cottage, which has a much smaller bathroom and bedroom, but is still charming. The kitchen is very well-equipped and the dining room is a large and wonderful gathering place. It rained most days while we were there, so it was a blessing to have lots of space to spread out and enjoy ourselves inside. I wish it had been nicer, because the salt-water pool and outside dining areas are superb.

The villa is very near an excellent restaurant, and is only about a 10 minute walk to the town of Portovenere. I would highly recommend staying here if hiking in the Cinque Terra. The Cinque Terra is accessible by ferry. Portovenere is a tourist town, with all of the tourist amenities one would like, but it isn't as overrun as the villages in the Cinque Terra. There are lots of good restaurants, gelaterias, shops, etc.

Teresa was extremely helpful both before and during our stay. She arranged for food to be in the villa when we arrived as well as a gorgeous bouquet of lilies whose scent filled the house with a sweetness we will not forget.

The only drawback was that the villa is near a public beach, and on the weekend it was very busy and somewhat noisy. It didn't bother us much, and was easily ignored.

I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. It was absolutely perfect - even in the rain!

Owner's Response: Dear Penny I'm sure that after your detailed and perfect review future guests won't have any doubts.THANKS A LOT! You and your friends were very kind and nice people, we are pleased to know that despite the bad weather you have enjoyed the villa so much. The villa is just above the sea, you cross the street and you can swim at sea, but of course not being a private little beach there are other people too.

Villa Argia Portovenere, Italy

  • 5 of 5

Villa Argia was a perfect fit for our family's vacation in Italy. The villa was historic, beautiful, convenient and in a perfect setting for enjoying this quaint, charming, and beautiful town of Portovenere. We loved that we could walk everywhere for morning coffees or dinners. Our intent was to spend 4 days in Cinque Terre and we only spent 2 days there since we so enjoyed Portovenere and Palmaria. The hosts, Teresa and Francesco were a wonderful resource and help to the area also.

A great villa for friends or family travelling together.

  • 5 of 5

We recently completed our Italian vacation with a stay at Villa Argia in Portovenere. Villa Argia is absolutely beautiful and has a fantastic location. We had eight people, four adult couples, and had plenty of room for everyone - private bathroom for each couple, large kitchen, large family room, comfortable bedding, good internet, etc. The home itself is very elegant: Carrara marble floors and staircase, high ceilings, antique furnishings, etc. The pool is huge and has a great area around it for relaxing in sun or shade. The villa has a spectacular view overlooking the bay, and has many outdoor seating areas to enjoy the great scenery. The walk to town, or to catch the boat to visit Cinque Terre, is only a short, easy 8-10 minutes. Teresa was out of town during our stay, so I was unable to meet her but she did a great job staying in touch and offering helpful tips prior to our arrival. Her brother in law took over at our arrival and could not have been any nicer or more helpful - making dinner recommendations and reservations, offering tourist tips, and being a warm and welcoming host. I would definitely recommend Villa Argia and a visit to the Portovenere and Cinque Terre area.

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our week at this beautiful villa centrally located in Portovenere! the villa was extreamily spacious & beautifully decorated with many antiques. we enjoyed walking into town to shop, sightsee, & take ferrys to the Cinque Terre. the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare many great meals that we enjoyed eating overlooking the Ligurian Sea, & the beautifully landscaped yard with a pool.

Teresa the owners daughter in law, was extreamily helpful in answering all of our questions before, & during our stay!

I am a travel agent & would defiantly recommend this villa to all of my clients!
