Large, beautiful, comfortable villa with outstanding view and fabulous gane/activity room.

  • 5 of 5

Could be comfortable for a group of six to eight. Car is necessarily (preferably a smaller one). Excellent location for day trips to many northern Italy tourist destinations

From Genoa to Pisa. Very friendly, helpful daughter/mother team greeted us and acquainted us with the home. We rate this stay very highly.

Wonderful property in a fantastic location with fantastic and ever changing view

  • 5 of 5

Great property for the eight of us. Spacious, with every thing we needed. Great views which changed constantly with the activity in the gulf and the changing light of the day. Privacy when we needed it, but great to have the games room. Outside gazebo was a winner for evening barbecues and pizzas. Must also mention the small shop close by and the great pizzeria. Great base for exploring the region.

Lovely and accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and Adriano, Christina and her daughter were great to work with. They were helpful in answering all our questions and very accommodating with our schedule. The house came well furnished, my only recommendation would be to have more paper products such as kitchen paper toweling or kitchen drying towels for hand drying dishes and possibly some olive oil and pepper (there was salt). I realize these may not be commonly supplied in Italy, but in most cases they are in the US. Other than that minor suggestion we DEFINELY would recommend this lovely property. Bello!

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 !!!

Nous avons passé un long week-end dans la maison d’Adriano et n’avons pas été déçus !!! Nous avons trouvé une maison spacieuse, décorée avec goût, propre et magnifique !!! Une vue à couper le souffle, un jardin très agréable, une salle avec billard dont nous avons bien profité !!! Bref tout le confort nécessaire pour passer un super moment !!!

Martina a été aux petits soins pour nous, une personne gentille et serviable !!! Nous reviendrons passer nos vacances à la Spezia, c’est certain !!! Merci pour tout !!! A très bientôt

Vue superbe !

  • 5 of 5

Grande maison dans un magnifique jardin arboré en terrasse, nombreux équipements intérieurs et extérieurs (dont barbecue, pergola, billard, jeux, matériel sportif...), idéal pour une grande famille de 10 personnes (nous étions 10 adultes, seulement 2 chambres mais assez de lits dans les autres pièces à partager). Quartier calme, une petite épicerie et une bonne pizzeria à 50m de la maison, très pratique ! La gare est à 3km, facilement accessible à pied en 40mn (venelles, voie verte). Très bon point de chute pour visiter les Cinque Terre : les trains fréquents et/ou le bateau permettent de rejoindre la ville tout au long de la journée. La Spezia est une ville italienne vivante et commerçante. La cerise sur le gâteau est la vue splendide sur le golf depuis la terrasse et même depuis toutes les pièces de la maison. Notre hôte sur place, Cristina, a été super ! Encore merci à elle pour sa disponibilité.

NB : attention, fin avril 2017 la consigne bagages de la gare était fermée.

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, can be easily reached by rail, using extremely frequent local trains. The Central Station has ample underground parking for a 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 .
