Lovely one bedroom apartment high in the hills overlooking La Spezia Gulf and Palmaria Is. Grounds, pool and pergola areas are immaculate and absolutely beautiful. This is the place to get away from the maddening crowds and relax.
Location is good, but a car helps if you want to see area sites. We took a trip to Luca, which took nearly two hours by bus & train. A car would have been an hour.
San Terenzo is an adorable village, right on the water, with decent restaurants. Try La Crueza del Mauri for a particularly excellent meal and eating experience. Lerici, a neighboring coastal town, is a 35 minute walk along the boardwalk, a lovely walk. We visited Cinque Terre villages by boat for a day; the boat running out of Lerici. Very convenient and reasonably priced at 35 euro/person.
And with all this goodness, the very best reason to rent this apartment is owner Daniele. She was so wonderfully accommodating, delightful, and fun. A welcome gift of fresh, ripe seasonal fruits and vegetables, pasta and pesto was so appreciated! A godsend on the first night when we came in exhausted and just needed a quick, healthy repast before crawling into bed. Thank you so much, Daniele (and Roberto....and Phillipo)!
