A great time at the Gulf of Poets

  • 5 of 5

We don't normally write reviews, but after our stay at the redbreast villa we felt compelled to write a small piece.

The villa is a dream come true for a family looking for a peaceful environment with all the comfort that you would get at home (and some extras). The kids enjoyed playing 8 ball and being able to swim in the (albeit rather small) swimming pool while we enjoyed the marvelous views and the use of a well equipped kitchen.

We were particularly charmed of the reception at the house of Cristina. She was a very helpful and if needed we could reach her during our time there. Thanks Cristina !!!

Haus/ House in La Spezia

  • 3 of 5

A wonderful spacious well-preserved old house with stunning views and a beautiful garden, but a little off and with an unfriendly landlord.

The house was tidy, clean, and well maintained. Unfortunately, the house has some problems with the electrics. The fuses went off often and we spent three days with the air conditioning out of service. We tried to fix this several times bu the problem was eliminated only after the coming of technicians, and one bedroom remained with no air conditioning during the entire stay. With 28 C at night this is almost unbearable for the average North European, especially when a 80+ year old lady is with us on the trip.

At the end of this week we asked for a compensation for the 3 hot days but the owner responded angrily and he insinuated that we had paid only for 6 days and not 7 (booking was allowed only for an entire week, and we obviously got a confirmation on this before), then he told us to leave with a "Get out of my house" goodbye.

Therefore we spent the vacation with various adventures in a beautifull Location.

Ein wunderbares großzügiges guterhaltenes altes Haus mit einer atemberaubenden Aussicht und einem schönen gepflegten Garten, allerdings ein bisschen abseits und mit einem unfreundlichen Vermieter.

Das Haus war aufgeräumt, sauber und sehr gepflegt. Leider hat das Haus einige Probleme mit der Elektrik. Die Sicherungen gingen öfter durch, Die Klimaanlagen waren 3 Tage außer Betrieb. Mehrere Versuche, dies zu reparieren sind erst nach dem Kommen der Techniker beseitigt, ein Schlafzimmer blieb die ganze Zeit aber ohne Klimatisierung. Bei 28 C nachts für die durchschnittlichen Nord-Europäer kaum auszuhalten, insbesondere wenn eine 80+ Jahre alte Dame mit dabei ist.

Beim Abschlussgespräch nach der Frage wegen der eventuellen Genugtuung für die 3 heißen Tage wurde der Vermieter wütend und hat uns unterstellt, dass wir nur für 6 Tage bezahlt haben ( Buchung war nur für die ganze Woche erlaubt, die Bestätigung lag natürlich vor), danach mit "Hau ab von meinem Haus" sich verabschiedet.

Also Urlaub mit Abenteuern in einer schönen Lage.

Blick über Hafen, Stadt und Meer

  • 4 of 5

Tolle Lage in den Hügeln La Spezias mit tollem Blick über die Stadt und die Bucht. Das Haus bietet sehr viel Platz und der Garten ist sehr großzügig mit mehreren Plätzen zum entspannen. Größere Gruppen können sich auch mal aus dem Weg gehen. Alles ist sehr sauber und gepflegt. Der Pool ist, wie allerdings durch die Bilder schon zu erwarten, eher ein Planschbecken für Kinder. Wer zu Fuß in die Stadt will, sollte bedenken, daß er einen sehr hohen und steilen Hügel wieder hoch muß. Es fährt ein Bus, allerdings nicht oft. Preis/Leistung stimmen, vor allem bei größeren Gruppen oder Familien. Es könnte ruhig mehr Handtücher geben.

+ Lage wegen Aussicht, Sauberkeit, Größe von Haus und Garten, Billardtisch

- Lage wegen anstrengendem Berg, Pool, Handtücher

Owner's Response: We are hardly sorry if our towels presented some imperfection, it surely has been an error we didn't notice; a problem that could have been solved with a phone call: we would have changed them. The location a bit out of reach is the "price to pay" for the quiteness of the location and the nice view that you can enjoy. Thank you.

The villa is not far from many places of interest and / or interest, accessible by land (eg. Portovenere (6. 5 km), Riomaggiore (12 km), Lerici (14km), Tellaro (18km), Sarzana (19 Km), Luni (25 Km) or by boats from the port of La Spezia (for the 5 Terre, Portovenere, Lerici, Portofino, Palmaria Island etc.). The 5 Terre, with its National Park, are well reachable by rail, using local trains estremamentefrequenti. The Central Station has a large parcheggiosotterraneo fee. Easily accessible by motorway to the cities of art: Pisa (90 km), Genova (100 km), Florence (170 km), Milan (213 km), Bologna (220 km), Siena (226 km), Verona (260 km), Venice (370km), Rome (430 km), and many others. In the city there are many museums: Naval (at Military Arsenal of La Spezia), Modern Art (CAMeC), Lia, Seal (historical collection of stamps and seals).

On the waterfront of the city are beautiful flower gardens, unique in its kind in Italy. The Old Town is animated by bars, restaurants, pizzerias, shops.

Nearby La Spezia are both beaches of sand (resort San Terenzo, Baia Blu, Venere Azzurra and Marinella of Sarzana) that rocky coastline (Portovenere and the entire coast of 5 Terre, with the Way of Love) with 'except Monterosso, which has a pebble beach. The sea, never equal to itself, so will vary from emerald green to cobalt blue more intense but will be characterized by clear water. The Gulf of La Spezia is the only natural fjord geologically recognizable in the Mediterranean, is flanked by the beautiful setting of the Alps and Apennines Ligure surrounded with the flowers for the entire year and its Mediterranean plant essences. Sea and Earth united in an eternal embrace, which man has adapted in a perfect symbiosis, a place of sea with its many different peoples made their own natural ability irreverent and courteous reception, with a disenchanted and sometimes mocking life. The mild climate, moderately windy offers even in winter unforgettable glimpses of harmonious sweetness, with the shatter of the waves on rocky coast and the people of his homeland with the still slow pace of the ebb and flow of the wave to mark the time of winter .
