What a beautiful location & authentic Italian village experience!

  • 5 of 5

From the rustic, yet super comfortable farmhouse building to the rolling hills and village bells, this is an experience far removed from the tourist trail. But, if you have access to a car, the delights of Pisa, Florence, Cinque Terra and many more attractions are within easy reach. If you have a large car (as our family of 6 did!) leave the car in the nearby car park, as access is via some very narrow lanes.

Grazia is a wonderful host. Communicating with her was easy; and she has video directions for how to get to the property. She gave us lots of local tips for where to go & what to do in the area.

The house is large, with plenty of comfortable beds & multiple bathrooms. There is access to a washing machine & sunshine for getting some holiday laundry done. The pool is enticing & our boys also enjoyed the table tennis! If you have a sense of adventure & enjoy accomodation that feels genuine, this is the place for you.

Amazing 400 year old farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

Our host was amazing and very welcoming. The drive into the property is a bit daunting. We were told we'd need a small car or a good Italian driver!!!! The first time in was a bit scary in our medium sized car but after that no problem. The house has everything you need and plenty of space. It was pretty cool cooking pasta and looking out across the valley to the mountains we later discovered was full of the marble Michelangelo used for his statues. I cannot recommend it enough. We will be back.

Lovely location, lovely owner!

  • 5 of 5

From our first contact, the owner was extremely friendly and helpful - even down to sending accurate directions to the property including a video, which was useful as the property is tucked away at the edge of the village. The approach around narrow streets and tight turns is a little alarming the first time, but you soon get used to it and it is all worthwhile once you arrive. The location means that there are stunning views and it is a peaceful spot. The owner was on hand to greet us when we arrived. We were also given some very good advice about the local area and places to visit. We were impressed with the accommodation, both in terms of layout, equipment and cleanliness. The only complaint is the lack of a coffee table in the lounge! Plenty of outside seating though, so that is a minor issue. The village is charming and has a lovely atmosphere, not very touristy, and the locals were friendly. The pizzeria is recommended and you can get a great croissant at the bar.

Beautifully appointed and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The very first thought I had as I drove up the windy narrow Italian roads was that I wished I had a smaller car. However, the drive was well worth it, and Grazia's directions for the GPS and video for landmarks were all very helpful. If you do find yourself leaving town a different way or crossing a very narrow bridge near a barbwire fence...TURN BACK. That is a road where there are places two cars cannot pass and backing up or down the hill is not easy, especially if you are not used to a clutch or it is nighttime. Take heed!

I was working in Massa/Carrara and my friends enjoyed taking the train to Cinque Terra. The property was convenient to do both with short drives to each location. The wifi worked well. The kitchen was awesome to cook in. We planned to use the wood fire pizza oven, but did not have the time. Furniture was comfortable. Area is safe. View is lovely. I can't say more. This is a gem of a place, Grazia and Marcello are very helpful and responsive hosts.

Helt fantastisk hus med många välgenomtänkta inredningsdetaljer och bevarad 1600 tals charm! Fantastisk utsikt och en helt underbar omgivning.

Stora utrymme , 3 badrum, förvaringsutrymme , barnsäng (även en extra resesäng för rymlingar 😂)

Välutrustad kök med allt man behöver för att laga mat , stort köksbord i köket och utomhus. Solparasoll finns. Stengung för att kunna baka . Myggnät på alla fönstren. Tvättmaskin och diskmaskin, tvättlinorna utomhus.

Fantastisk värd Grazia som bakade en välkomskaka till oss och även focaccia. I trädgården fanns charongfrukter, apelsiner, citroner, persikor, fikon, plommon, kiwi, vindruvor, kryddor (salvia, timjan)

Lekplats för barn, stor grill .

Bara några 100 M från huset finns 2 jätte mysiga restauranger med helt fantastisk mat samt ett spa med massa div behandlingar.

Stranden låg ca 5 km från huset. Shopping ca 3 km med ett stort mataffär men även små speceriaffärer i byn. Parkering på egendomen, OBS små gränder när man kör så det tar ett par gånger innan man lär sig att manövrera sin stora bil genom de.

Car: recommended

After arriving in the village of Vezzano Ligure (Vezzano Basso) - crazy Regina Margherita, you enter the house in Liguria through a short, narrow and typical street Ligurian, bounded by other stone walls.

After passing through a wrought iron gate, along a path bordered on one side by tall cypress trees that end in the yard.

The guests of the house should definitely visit over the 5 terre (Riomaggiore, Manarola, Vernazza, Corniglia and Monterosso), also Lerici, Tellaro, Sarzana, Portovenere and the island Palmaria, or the Versilia, with Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi, Lunigiana with their castles and the Apuan Alps, as well as cities such as Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Genoa.

These places can be reached by train or, to the seaside resorts, by sea from La Spezia, a few miles away and reachable by bus.

For those who love sports, in Lerici you can play golf in a welcoming and cured structure with private parking; the court may instead be practiced in a circle or in Lerici Ameglia.

For those who love horse riding, the owners are happy to introduce guests in the same building in Sarzana frequented by the family.

For guests who love good food, the owners recommend two rooms present a Vezzano where you can enjoy a tasty, authentic pizza or typical dishes of Liguria.
