You will know you are in the right place as an overwhelmingly magnificent view of medieval Ameglia will be looking right at you from the small private road. The apartment complex is entered through the large metal gate I have installed to ensure that the garden area is absolutely safe for children to play in.

By night there is a perfect spot to sit at the large outdoor table to view the magnificence of the old village of Ameglia lit up at night. It is pure magic!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a very nice holiday in this beautiful apartment in Ameglia. It is a really an apartment in Italian style, with everything you need for a relaxed holiday. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms are fine and everything in the house is clean and neat. There is a box with a lot of information about things to do in that part of Italy, from walking the Cinque Terre to visiting musea and villages. Within a 10-minute drive by car you are on very good beaches and there is a supermarket nearby. The garden surrounding this apartment is all yours and offers you a lovely place in the sun of in the shade.

This is an apartment we surely will recommend !

Interesting location.

  • 4 of 5
This is a great location for exploring the Southern Italian Riveria. We enjoyed visiting Lerici and Portovenere as much as the Cinque Terre. The nearby city of Sarzana is well worth visiting and has plenty to see. The hill village, Ameglia, is typical of many of Italy's villages. The unit is well set up and we had a very comfortable stay. Sharon provides excellent information and her book collection about Italy was very good. Her advice for eating out was spot on!

A Lovely Spot

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Ameglia this May and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The apartment is clean and nicely decorated throughout with a very useful library of books on the region and Italy as a whole. One book, Soffritto is particularly good as it covers the immediate vicinity, look out your window and you might see one of the characters contained in its pages. The garden is well kept and fully enclosed which was a bonus as we have two small children who like to wander
The village itself has all the amenities you might require and anything not readily available can be found in the nearest town Sarzana, which is a real gem and definitely worth visiting.
With the opening of the bridge over the Magro River , Pisa and Lucca are easy day trips and there are lots of interesting hill towns in the vicinity as well as plenty of lovely beaches.
All in all a lovely spot and one i wouldnt hesitate to recommend , particularly to other families with young children.

Ameglia July 2012

  • 4 of 5
We are a Swedish family of 4 (children: 9 & 13) that spent a hot week in July in the Ameglia apartment. It was easy to follow the clear instructions we got from host Sharon. The apartment is very well equipped and big enough for a family. Ameglia is a very nice little village and the apartment is just a few minutes walking distance from restaurants, café, gelateria and supermarket. Sharon is very helpful in all ways and just a text message away. Closest public beach is just 5-10 minutes away by car. Sharon has a big box full of brochures and maps to help you find everything in the area. We found Cinque Terre, Piza, Marble mines of Carrara and Lerichi very nice. Be sure not to miss the fantastic ice cream in the gelateria across the street from the supermarket (open in the afternoon and evening). Remember that most places close for siesta in the middle of the day. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to get back some day!

Lovely location in Liguria

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay in this apartment in Ameglia – we like it so much that we keep coming back. The location is great with the beautiful old town on the hill and everything we needed within an easy walk of the apartment. There is a good supermarket, wonderful gelataria, several bars and a great family-run restaurant (Gori) all close by.

The ground-floor apartment is very clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The outdoor area is a bonus and is great for alfresco dining and drying washing. We always feel very much at home and can relax in a nice setting. We have stayed on our own and also had friends join us – there is plenty of space for two and enough for four. The owners have provided a wealth of information for guests – bus timetables, walking maps and tourist information.

This is a beautiful part of Italy and there are many places to visit including Cinque Terre, Sarzana, Lucca and Pisa. There are also some wonderful walks in the area. As well as Ameglia old town and Bocca di Magra, we also walked to Tellaro and Lerici.

In short, a wonderful place for a holiday.

Italian getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week in Ameglia. The apartment was easy to find with our navigation system and the owner could not have been more helpful and obliging. The house was very clean and comfortable for three adults and within walking distance of the supermarket and local gelateria. Great local walks and close enough for day trips to Pisa, Florence and magic Cinque Terra.
I would say a car is a must although there are buses to main locations. Lots of information about local attractions provided by Sharon and Jeremy. Would definitely recommend this location and accommodation. Hope to retun one day (with a bike)

Amazing place to stay in Ameglia.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this apartment with our two children this August for one week. We would definitely go back. The apartment had all we needed, the kitchen was very well equipped, the beds were incredibly comfortable and it was lovely to be able to sit in the garden. Parking was no problem, we always managed to find a space near the apartment. There is a gelateria about a 5 minute walk from the flat which had the most delicious ice cream, we visited it every evening! The local supermarket is opposite the gelateria and had a very good butchers, bakery and fish mongers. You can walk up to the beautiful, unspoilt old town of Ameglia from the apartment, which had an excellent restaurant, a rabbit warren of beautiful old streets and stunning views across to the mountains. The location is fantastic. The flat is situated on the edge of Liguria and Tuscany. Pisa and Lucca are only an hour’s drive away to the East with the Cinque Terre 45 minutes away to the West. We visited many beaches too; sandy beaches 10 minutes drive away at Marina di Massa and beautiful cove beaches near Tellaro with crystal clear water 20 minutes drive away. The owner Sharon was incredibly helpful. She provided an abundance of helpful information before we left to give us an idea of the area, where we could go, how to get there and what’s in the local vicinity. It really enhanced our stay.

Nestled between Montemarcello & Bocca di Magra, Ameglia overlooks the last stretches of the River Magra & the surrounding plains. It is in the heart of the Montemarcello park & ideal for cross-country walking with marked paths, some starting right at the front door! It is a pretty, natural area, steeped in history and culture, with sandy beaches 2 kms. Bocca di Magra also has a small beach & several restaurants, bars and marina. It is also an ideal location for day trips to the world-famous Cinque Terre, the Lunigiana, Lerici and Portovenere, Viareggio, Pisa, Florence & Lucca, with the 'Italian Riviera' of Santa Margherita and Portofino north of the Cinque Terre heading towards Genoa, the coastline being dotted with picturesque and colourful villages on the way up. The medieval & colourful Sarzana, our main city, is 7kms away. Sarzana has its own history and culture, with plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops & larger supermarkets, the dramatic, medieval fortress peering above it.
