GORGEOUS VILLA IN NATURE NR CINQUE TERRE, RIVIERA, ALTA VIA LIGURE

Varese Ligure Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 2 living rooms Sleeps 8

NOW ACCEPTING PAYPAL !! Our sixteenth century, stone villa is privately situated in a national park on a mountainside overlooking chestnut forests and distant medieval villages in Liguria, Italy´s most mountainous and forested region. 'Le Moggie' is a rare place where you can find true privacy and tranquility in an unspoiled region which in 1998 received the first ever European Community award for the highest environmental quality of life in all of Europe.

For those seeking a break from connectivity, although cel phones will work in the vicinity of the house, under the nut tree in front of the terrace, internet service is not available. And this makes for some lovely family experiences as well as a much needed break for many people. For those with laptops who need a wifi connection, Varese Ligure has many options. .

Le Moggie has been completely restored and is furnished throughout with local antiques. Hiking paths and wonderful views abound near 'Le Moggie', which is located on a winding, semi-private road. The air is refreshing and pure and a government-certified mineral water spring feeds the house.

The medieval town of Varese Ligure, is just 8 kil. or 5 mi. from Le Moggie, It is the old regional capital and has been declared a patrimony of mankind by Unesco. Varese offers extensive shopping, fantastic restaurants and is just 27 kil. or 16 mi. from the sea.

To learn more about our property: Please visit our website at http://www.liguriavillarental.com/

Please be aware that Liguria is Italy´s most mountainous region with very narrow, winding roads nearly everywhere and therefore, driving in Liguria can be a challenge for those unused to these kinds of roads.

LA CAMPAGNA

  • 4 of 5
A month stay that left us truly rested and relaxed. This is not luxury, it is luxurious simplicity and quiet. All guests (from Livorno, Pisa, London, Boston) loved the house and the large table around which wonderful meals were held. The upper terrace was the site for impromptu lunches overlooking the Ligurian hills. Walks abound. Owls call at dusk. One star is missing because it is a country house with country characteristics: a bit damp, a few creatures occasionally sharing the house (reasonably!), and electric that needs gentle handling. But none of this should prevent you from staying in this wonderful home. The owner is very responsive and clear. You will also love driving into town for wonderful meals at a few lovely establishments. It was perhaps the best retreat I've ever had.

This was our second visit to the house, and we will be staying again in August 2014. The house is superb, the location is superb, and we had an excellent stay. I recommend Le Moggie very highly.

THANK YOU!

  • 5 of 5
Dear Alice,

We had a wonderful time!!! Such a beautiful house, interior and exterior. And the surroundings are excellent! We did walks around the Valletti area, Cinque Terre and Portofino. Really beautiful!

We left the house early yesterday morning and left the key under the flowerpot where we found it.

Thank you again for a wonderful time!

Kind regards,
Lycke

EXCEEDED ALL EXPECATION

  • 5 of 5
I was very happy with my stay at Le Moggie! It exceeded all expectation and it was absolutely the best vacation I have ever had! The pace was just right. We did a lot of walking around, near the house, near Varese Ligure, and the Parco de Aveto. For the most part we stayed in the area around Varese Ligure: though we did visit Sarzana, Lerici, Luna, Cinque Terre and Genova. Paths near the house were wonderful. Along the path which is reached by leaving the house, and turning right up the hill instead of down into Valletti, we made the acquaintance of several friendly elderly Ligurian ladies. We also ate at most of the restaurants in VL. I think the Gallo Nero was my favorite. There is a grocery in town which has everything we needed to cook at home when we preferred to do that. I loved the different foods we were able to sample especially the different pestos and pastas. I liked croxetti/crozetti which is a type of pasta I had not seen before coming to Liguria. I have been researching croxetti and apparently you can buy a croxetti stamp from a man with a small shop behind the red cross near the carabinieri. I did not know this while there or I would have bought one (we didn't hook up internet at the house so less ability to research things / waste time -it was actually a relief to be "unplugged."). I also met the gentleman who runs the leather shop in town, and he made me a beautiful handbag to my specifications. The handbag is of exquisite quality.

My husband and I were able to relax and we loved all aspects of our trip (except maybe driving on those mountain roads, but we got used to it!)

Thank you so much for sharing Le Moggie with us. We would love to visit again.

STAY AT LE MOGGIE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent two-week
stay at Le Moggie, which is a superb house, in a superb location, in
a superb part of Italy. The house is exceptionally well resourced offering everything you may need during your stay, and is very attractively furnished in a variety of interesting vernaculars. The location is excellent offering appropriate isolation and good hiking, but just 15 minutes from Varese Ligure which offers all the amenities you may require, including two very good bars and supermarkets. And this part of Liguria is well-positioned for important regional sites, assuming you want to take the trouble to leave the house!

YOU WILL LOVE THIS HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Our week at Le Moggie was way too short. The house is wonderful and just exactly as it's pictured on the website. Everything we needed for the kitchen was there, the beds were comfortable, everything was clean and in order. We actually felt like pinching ourselves the first morning when we had breakfast on the terrace and looked at the hills surrounding us. Don't miss this house! It's a once in a lifetime experience.

We enjoyed the opportunity to spend time in Varese Ligure, and we made side trips to the Cinque Terre and Lucca, as well as stopping in Genova on our way back to Milan. But mostly we relaxed, ate, walked, and drove through the little hillside towns around us. It was a great trip!
