(Text automatically translated) For those who love the sea, a house immersed in the typical colors of the Ligurian landscape a stone's throw from the magnificent village of Lerici. Ideal to visit the 5 Terre and Portovenere. Breathtaking views and tranquility assured.

Remote but beautiful
We loved our time at Paola's place in Lerici, the apartment was spacious and the views unbeatable. We arrived kind of late and Paola was very accommodating, picking us up at the train station and providing food for our first night's dinner in case we didn't feel like going out for dinner.
We ultimately did go out the first night, to a very good restaurant not far down the road. All other restaurants were down in the town, and there were some very good ones. Lerici is a great seaside town and we're glad we stayed there.
I gave the place four stars only because it was more remote than we realized. The reviews said it was near a bus stop, which is true, but the buses do not run very often. In fact, we never saw a bus go up our road the whole time we were there. We ended up walking down into town and back up to the apartment each time we went somewhere. Getting back up is a half hour of constant uphill walking.
I would certainly recommend the place but if we went back again we would rent a car or at least a scooter to make it more enjoyable.
Charming apartment in gre...
Charming apartment in great location with spectacular views. Grateful for A/C in bedrooms during heatwave and lovely to have both a terrace and patio/garden providing shade at different times of day. The apartment was mostly quiet, with occasional sounds from events in Lerici wafting up the hill. The apartment seemed reasonably clean.
We rented a scooter which made getting around and parking much easier (especially at the beach and in the centre of Lerici)though there is also a bus service into town from the stop at the bottom of the steps going down from the apartment. (We walked down once (20 mins) and caught the bus back up - it is pretty steep.) La Serra has two nice restaurants that are a 10/15 minute walk away, one of which has stunning sunset views,(L'Orto di Ameste). The other is called Miro and serves delicious pasta and sea-food. There is a choice of beaches - we liked San Terenzo because of the view back to Lerici and the wider beach, but there are coves all the way along the coast. Not sure the castle at Lerici is worth a visit to the interior unless you can read Italian. Beware of mosquitoes at sunset if you are down by the water - silent, but deadly! There is a small supermarket in Lerici - the quality of the fruit and veg there was extremely high. Tellaro was very pretty and a lovely drive along the coast road to get there (have coins ready for the parking fees). Be prepared for aching calf-muscles if you're not used to climbing and descending hundreds of steps.
We found out all the above information by ourselves without too much difficulty, but would have been great to have some basic information available in the apartment (shop locations and bus-stops and opening times etc), although there were one or two tourist leaflets.
Overall, we would highly recommend this apartment and also Lerici as a holiday destination.

"The house was nice,comfortable bed and beautifully situated. Magnificent view over the bay from the mountain top. The disadvantage of this in combination with the impossibility of parking your car anywhere is obvious!We undertook the walk down into Lerici, over rocksteps which were hard te find and overgrown with weeds. Quite an adventure! If we were to return we would not hesitate to rent a scooter. Our host was very helpful showing us a''nearby'' restaurant( in La Serra,superb!)and an ATM."
OTTIMA POSIZIONE E CASA BEN SERVITA DI TUTTO IL NECESSARIO ANCHE PER CHI SI MUOVE CON BAMBINI
Très bon accueil!
L'appartement est assez bien situé avec une vue magnifique sur la baie. C'est grand, beau jardin. Endroit parfais pour se relaxer.
Nous avons été très bien reçu et nous reviendrons avec plaisir.
Traumhafte Aussicht inclusive ...
Ruhige Ferienwohnung mit viel Platz und nahezu kompletter Ausstattung, dazu ein Garten mit Sitzgruppe im Schatten und eine überdachte Terrasse, die fast den ganzen Tag in der Sonne liegt. Der Blick von der Terrasse über Lerici und den Golf von La Spezia ist tags und nachts überwältigend, so dass die anderen Räumlichkeiten kaum genutzt werden. Die zum Teil etwas in die Jahre gekommene Ausstattung lässt sich dadurch leicht verschmerzen.
Bei aller Ruhe und Aussicht sollte man wissen, worauf man sich einlässt: die Wohnung liegt ca. 200m über dem Meer, der Fußweg ist steil und die Parkplatzsituation in Lerici ist nicht einfach. Wer sich damit arrangieren kann, findet einen perfekten Ort zum entspannen und einen guten Ausgangspunkt für Lerici selbst sowie Touren in die Cinque Terre, in die Apuanischen Alpen, an die Badestrände von Marina di Massa und und und.
You can rent motorbikes in a shop with an agrement in La Spezia.
