VILLA RENTALS IN LIGURIA 

Liguria offers over 200 miles of picturesque coastline, which stretches form the French border over across the boundary with Tuscany. Formerly a haven of Pirates, who would shelter their ships amongst the narrow rocky inlets, Liguria has since become a mecca, not only for the rich and famous, but also for those looking for a relaxing, sun drenched beach holiday in Italy. The deep-water ports that once held Pirate vessels now hold deluxe yachts from all over the world and this is the ideal location for a wedding in Italy or the perfect honeymoon destination!

Liguria / Cinque Terre



At Bridgewater’s Idyllic Italy we believe that the best way to explore an area is through the eyes of a local. Here we have enlisted the help of a trusted Italian colleague who has been kind enough to share their inside secrets on the region they live in. (The answers are not edited to maintain their authenticity)

Welcome to Liguria and The Cinque Terre by your local expert 'Miriana'. We asked Miriana the following questions:

HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED IN LIGURIA?

I was born in Liguria and lived all my life here. I know every inch of the area around La Spezia, my home town: the famous Cinque Terre and the Poets' Gulf. I'm never tired of my own land and I still watch it everyday as if it were the first day

WHAT MAKES YOUR REGION SPECIAL TO YOU?

It is still an area where one can live at ease, quiet and appealing at the same time. Especially the villages (I work in Vernazza, where I have my own office) give the right pace to my life and to the life all the visitors coming to see them. Nature is the keyword here: clean air and waters, luxuriant vegetation, healthy and tasty food make of this land still a paradise to live in. Really worth to be visited.

USE 5 WORDS TO SUM UP THE ESSENCE OF YOUR REGION:

Nature, sea, country, food, relax

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT LIGURIA?

Our area has a mild climate all over the year: not too cold in winter time, tempratures rarely go below 8 degrees and snow is really an exceptional event, and not too hot summer
Coldest mont January and February, most rainy month November, warmest months July and August (always lower than 30 degrees)

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IN LIGURIA AND WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT IT?

The choice is really great: Cappun Magro in Volastra (over Manarola), A pie de Ma in Riomaggiore, Gambero Rosso, Belforte, Gianni Franzi and Trattoria del Capitano in Vernazza, da Miky in Monterosso, Da Billy in Manarola


WHAT TOP TEN THINGS WOULD YOU ADVISE VISITORS TO SEE / DO WHEN THEY VISIT LIGURIA?

1: Vernazza - best views

2: Manarola - also beautiful views

3: Corniglia - the best departure point for hiking

4: Monterosso - amazing beaches and fun for young people, ideal for families

5: Riomaggiore - colourful

6: Portovenere - history and romance

7: La Spezia - shopping, musueums, good restaurants

8: Val di Vara valley - tiny villages and lovely countryside

9: Pesto and Pasta cooking class

10: Sarzana - history and shopping, best place for antique collectors and lovers

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE LIGURIAN RECIPE?

Pasta and Pesto

THE BEST LOCAL WINE FROM LIGURIA?

Vermentino and Sciachetrà

WHERE WOULD YOU STAY ON A HOLIDAY IN LIGURIA?

Cassetta San Terenzo!

WHAT ARE BRIDGEWATER'S 'FINISHING TOUCHES'

When you book a villa rental with Bridgewater's Idyllic Italy we are pleased to offer extra services which will enable your to personalise your holiday. Bridgewater's Finishing Touches enhance your enjoyment of the area leaving you free to relax and simply enjoy yourselves. Our aim is to make your arrival as stress free as possible and generally help to improve your holiday experience in Italy. We are occasionally asked why we don't automatically include some of the services in the villa rental... the reason being that our villa holidays are for people with varied tastes and individual requirements. Obviously if extra services are automatically included then these costs have to be built into the villa rental and this may not suit all our guests.

SHOPPING SERVICE & HAMPERS:

In most properties we can arrange for a full food/drinks hamper to be delivered to the villa. Contents may vary according to the season however local staff ensure value for money, the cost includes a standard local service charge for car petrol and time. Unfortunately we cannot take requests for specific items.

* Shopping service
* General hampers
* Luxury hampers of local delicacies
* Cases of wine

EXTRA MAID SERVICE:

A great service for those who enjoy the freedom and independence of a villa holiday yet prefer a hotel type service. 

To guarantee availability of the service, please book well in advance. Maid's duties include making/changing beds, sweeping and washing floors, cleaning bathrooms, kitchens, washing dishes


CHEF / COOK: 

Why not dine 'al fresco' and have someone else do the hard work for you? 
Bridgewater's Idyllic Italy can arrange for a chef on a daily basis or for a one off special meal. There is an hourly rate to pay for the chefs services and food is payable locally. Alternatively we can arrange for a chef to come and give you a one to one cookery lesson in your villa, or arrange a cookery day at an oil/wine producing estate. Please let us know at the time of booking if this is of interest to you. The chef / cook service is available at most of our properties
