Lovely central location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment itself is lovely; high ceilings, big rooms, clean, the bathroom even has a bath which is something I haven't come across that often in Italy.

It is quite strange that the apartment is on the 1st floor of a block, but has a pretty big garden, because it is built into the side of a hill; a lovely quirky feature! The garden itself could do with a bit of love and care, it could be lovely if someone cleared the overgrowth etc and put in some climbing flowers; it would make a real difference.

There are loads of mosquitos unfortunately, so any time we went out there we got bitten (even with spray) so we didn't bother. We had a dog with us, so it was great for us and probably the main reason we booked the apartment in the first place.

The kitchen is well equipped, but the pans etc are enormous and the sink is a small bowl sink, so it makes it a bit awkward to use. The agent/owner did not provide any chopping knifes (for safety reasons) but did get some delivered when we complained, after we struggled to slice bread and chop vegetables with butter knifes.

All the windows have sliding mosquito nets, except the kitchen/diner. It looked like it hd been broken and possibly removed and not replaced; this is a massive shame and really was difficult to not be able to have the doors open in the afternoon/evening or the mosquitos descended in droves, especially when cooking. It wasn't too hot when we were there, but I can imagine it would be really uncomfortable when the weather was really hot.

The furniture is a combination of Ikea and old pieces; it a bit of a juxtaspostition, not my cup of tea, but rather than feel like it was a style statement, it felt like bit that were not wanted from the owners house.

All in all it has a great location, just a short walk from the harbour and lots of restaurant and shops. There isn't a great deal to do in Lerici, but it is a very pretty place and you can get a boat from the harbour to take you around the Cinqueterra.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, thanks for the review. It makes me very happy that you found the apartment lovely and you appreciate it. Thank you very much for your suggestions, I always improve my homes and your opinion is very useful. The furniture are just as in the photos: thank you very much for your opinion, there are three antique furniture and the rest is new. In the kitchen there are not only butter knives, but also knives with hacksaw that all past guests have found suitable to cut bread and vegetables: I'm sure you appreciated that I brought you others. The mosquito net was broken just the day before your arrival and will certainly be replaced. I'm sorry I did not let you know the best things to do and to visit in Lerici which are many more than those that can offer the Cinque Terre. Lerici is a much bigger and ancient village, has two medieval castles, lots of services for tourists, lots of beaches and also paths in nature thanks to the Montemarcello-Magra Natural Park. The Tellaro district is a jewel, Fiascherino offers renowned coves, the wonderful Portovenere and the islands Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto (Unesco World Heritage Site) are reachable in a few dozen minutes by public boats. And Lerici offers a lot more. I hope to host you again soon, I'm sure you'll notice the constant effort to improve. Thanks you again. Best regards

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious and very comfortable, and the very central but quiet location suited us perfectly. Lerici is such a nice town to stay in and offers so many opportunities for wonderful walks and other activities, and Francesco was very helpful both before and during our stay. However, we were puzzled by his request that we dispose of 4 bags of rubbish ourselves( taking them down to the town square) before leaving, as in our experience this is usually the responsibility of the landlord or cleaner.

If you're wondering if you should stay here, the answer is yes!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property in an excellent location in Lerici. My wife, 1-year-old son and I stayed here for 4 weeks in March and found everything to be exactly as pictured.

Francesco (the host) was truly outstanding, going above and beyond our expectations to address any concerns we had. The apartment is clean and bright, and the back garden is very large with picturesque views of the pastel buildings that rise around the property. There are lemon and cherry trees in the back that were blossoming during our visit, and it was truly peaceful when framed against the stone walls surrounding the garden.

The building has an elevator, which made it very easy to go out with our son in his stroller. There is also a grocery store just a few blocks up the street with everything we needed for our stay. Even in March (a bit before tourist season) we found most of the restaurants and shops to be open.

We were hesitant to book this property with no previous reviews, but we were very glad we did. Overall, we had an excellent stay and would recommend the property and the host very highly.

Zentral gelegen mit nettem Garten - gerne wieder!

  • 4 of 5

Uns hat die Wohnung super gut gefallen. Sie liegt mitten im Zentrum von Lerici. Hauptplatz, Restaurants, Supermärkte, Geschäfte und die Anlegestelle der Fähre sind nur einen Steinwurf entfernt. Auch der Strand ist gut zu Fuß erreichbar (5-10 Minuten). Wir haben den schönen Garten nicht wirklich genutzt, weil wir meistens unterwegs waren. Aber allein der Blick hinaus ins Grüne mitten im Städtchen ist schon etwas Besonderes...

Auch der Kontakt zum Vermieter Francesco via SMS hat bestens funktioniert.

Für 2 bis 4 Personen sehr zu empfehlen!

Dominated by the imposing castle of San Giorgio, one of Europe's largest sea fortresses, Lerici is situated at the eastern end of the "Golfo dei Poeti" ("Gulf of Poets"). The main attraction of this area is definitely the sea which, between Lerici, San Terenzo, Fiascherino and Tellaro, alternates rocky areas with free and private, fully-equipped beaches. Lerici is also the point where boats arrive and depart for Portovenere, the Cinque Terre and, during the summer, Portofino. Sporting activities are many and available all year round: sailing, with the prestigious School of Santa Teresa, diving, wind surfing as well as hiking, mountain-biking, tennis and golf. The Natural Park of Montemarcello-Magra and the neighboring Natural Parks of Portovenere and 5 Terre, which include uninhabited islands, sea caves and vast marine protected areas, also allow moments of relaxation, adventure and romance in the midst of nature and unforgettable landscapes. Places to visit in the area include the town of Sarzana (7 km), the archaeological site of Luni and the famous white marble quarries of Carrara in the Apuan Alps (15 km), fashionable Versilia and Forte dei Marmi with numerous nightclubs frequented by celebrities (30 km), Lucca and Pisa (65 km), Genova and Parma (100 km) and Firenze (150 km) as well as the nearby La Spezia, all easily reachable thanks to the A12 motorway exits of Sarzana and La Spezia, both just 8 km away.
