Full Description

Truly beautiful house finished with materials of the highest quality, in a stunning setting of a Ligurian hilltop village.

The house is approached from the main 'borgo', cobbled pedestrian lane, of this very pretty village. The house is on various levels, each one unique.

From the main door, there is a large walk-in wardrobe, well fitted to house ample storage. Up the quality marble stairs there is a double bedroom with adjoining bathroom. The interior stone wall gives the rustic feel and the house is full of light. Up to the top, living, level is a large open plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen. There is a full glass door off the kitchen which give access to the perfect balcony for dining with the sea view out to the Gulf of the Poets.

From the bedroom level there is an iron spiral staircase down to a studio room below which could be used as an additional bedroom, or as kid's room or games room.

On the lower level of the house there is a very useful, and immaculate laundry room and a luxury bathroom, with a beautiful, large bath.

The terracotta tiles throughout are hand-made. The quality of the fireplace is of the highest order.

From the cobbled side lane outside there is access to a 'cantina' for storage.

The exterior of the house will be re-painted, in the same colours, in the next few months.

There is easy free parking in the village square and there is a train station at the bottom of the hill with a good service of trains to the Cinque Terre in particular, and to La Spezia and beyond.

The Gulf of the Poets is an enclave with a group of three islands at its tip, fishing villages with exceptional fish restaurants, as well as opportunities for sailing, canoeing, snorkelling or just relaxing on one of the beaches hidden in craggy bays around Fiascherino or Tellaro. The easiest way to get around the gulf is by boat which runs between Lerici, La Spezia and Portovenere or on to The Cinque Terre. The name Gulf of the Poets is from the literary connection as some of the world’s most famous poets including Shelley, Byron and D H Lawrence lived here at some time.

The Cinque Terre are five picturesque villages strung along the narrow coastline north of the Gulf of the Poets and La Spezia with pretty coves, beaches and are accessed on foot, boat or with the local train that shuttles between the villages. Anyone visiting the Cinque Terre should take a walk along the cliff paths which link one village to the next, stop in one of the bars or restaurants and try the anchovies marinated in olive oil and garlic, served with bread and delicate white wine made from the grapes that grow up the steep terraces above the villages. The Cinque Terre is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
