About the property

In a traditional house in an ancient village, 2 bedrooms with sea view.

A beautiful house on a hill above Lerici, with a wonderful view over the Gulf of La Spezia.

The apartment consists of two bedrooms, a living room, a dining area, kitchen and bathroom.

A terrace on top of the house allows for sunbathing in a holy peace or having a glass watching a spectacular sunset over Portovenere.

On top of a hill, with 5 windows on the sea side and 3 on the valley of the River Magra, it is always fresh and ventilated.

The house was deeply restored in 2017 to be used for holidays.

It is located in the hamlet Pugliola on a road that leads to the bottom of the village and is therefore not busy, and there are no dangers for children. A quiet hamlet with a couple of shops, the bar / home cooking.

Lerici is one and a half miles on foot, two by car. You can get to the village in ten minutes and get back in a bus or taxi if you do not want to take the car.

You can go to the station of Sarzana or that of Spezia by bus.

Pugliola is a good starting point for a territory that offers everything: From Lerici depart the ferries to Portovenere and the Cinque Terre that can be reached by train either from Sarzana or La Spezia. In less than an hour you reach Pisa, just over an hour to Lucca and Florence. In fifteen minutes you can reach the slopes of the Apuane Alps or the beaches of Versilia. Practical sports are infinite. Sailing, biking, mountaineering, horseback riding, trekking, diving ... to you the choice.

In the area you eat very well: On the one hand the Ligurian cuisine of land with meat and vegetables cleverly mixed, in front of a fishy sea that supplies many markets and markets, and a few steps to Tuscany with its meat, its tasty salami and its Simple flavors.

Traumwohnung und perfekter Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Für uns ein wahrer Traum war die Lage oberhalb des Küstenstädtchens Lerici und die wunderschöne Aussicht vom Balkon über die Bucht. Die Wohnung liegt in einem wunderschönen alten Haus, geschmackvoll möbliert, schönes modernes Badezimmer und mit Spülmaschine und nötigem Hausstand bestens ausgestattet. Das Dorf Pugliola war nach unserem Geschmack, etwas abseits des Rummels, zu Fuß nur ca. 10-15 Minuten ans Meer nach Lerici und viele Ausflugsmöglichkeiten.

Bereits im Vorfeld erhielten wir alle nötigen Informationen von Davide per Email. Zur Begrüßung Prosecco und Getränke im Kühlschrank und das Angebot, immer für Fragen ansprechbar zu sein, so hat Davide unseren wunderschönen Urlaub als perfekter Vermieter abgerundet. Jederzeit empfehlen wir diese Wohnung für einen stilvollen Italienurlaub mit vielseitigen Ausflugsmöglichkeiten und einen angenehmen Vermieter. Jederzeit würden wir uns wieder hier einmieten.

Casa perfetta, vista incantevole. Si trova in un paesino vivace anche se imerso nel verde e nella natura. La casa è ben accessoriata, piena di libri interessanti da leggere. I letti comodi, la cucina ben equipaggiata. La meraviglia è l'angolo di paradiso all'ultimo piano.

Il proprietario è gentile e molto disponibile.

Sagenhafter Meerblick über den Dächern von Lerici

  • 5 of 5

Eine wunderbare Woche mit der schönsten Aussicht über den gesamten Golfo dei Poeti in einem Appartment eines historischen Hauses in Pugliola, einem italienischen Dorf, wie sonst nur aus Filmen. Auf dem Balkon abends mit einem Glas Wein die Schiffe beobachten, Frachter, Schifferboote, Segelboote, Motorjachten von Letici nach La Specia oder Portovenere und aufs offene Meer. Das Appartment ist vom Vermieter, einem begeisterten Segler, geschmackvoll renoviert und eingerichtet. Individualisten, Menschen, die das Meer und Schiffe lieben, Italienfans, werden begeistert sein, alle anderen sollten eher in einer Hotelkette einchecken für genormten sogenannten Luxus. Wir haben unseren Italienurlaub an einem der schönsten und noch ursprünglichsten Orten der Riviera in vollen Zügen genossen. Gut zu wissen: unsere Kinder und Hunde waren willkommen, das Auto wurde mit einem sicheren Gefühl auf dem Dorfparkplatz geparkt, eines der Zimmer ist über den Flur vom restlichen Appartment getrennt, aber der Vermieter, der im unteren Stockwerk wohnt, ist so diskret, dass wir das gesamte obere Stockwerk offen als Wohnung nutzten, Queensize Bed muss man mögen, Matratzen italian style, Bad und Küche hoch modern, keine Klima aber erfrischender Wind vom Meer und von der einen Seite Blick auf Blumen von der anderen Blick auf Meer. Auf keinen Fall verpassen: Tellaro, das schönste Dorf Italiens nur wenige km entfernt, Palmaria, zum Baden eine fantastische Insel, in Lerici am Hafen ab 22.00 Uhr romantisches Dinner ......
