Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Giacomo was a super organised and very helpful host. Giacomo has a trip to the Cinque Terre already planned out for his guest which we found to be EXTREMELY helpful. Giacomo and Isa's place has got so much history and is in a lovely location set up above La Spezia. Giacomo was full of good advice and helpful tips for us traveling around Italy. We really enjoyed meeting Giacomo and Isa, and would stay with them again!

  • I really enjoyed staying with Giacomo and Isa. He met my boyfriend and me at the train station and was very friendly. He gave us a lot of information about the area and had everything ready for us when we wanted to do a day trip to Cinque Terre. Overall, the villa was beautiful and I highly suggest it!

  • This place was unbelievable. Gorgeous wonderful retreat with stunning views. Although you definitely need a car to stay here the drive is beautiful through the towns. Giacomo suggested great restaurants to us and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. I'd definitely recommend this place!

  • Per dividersi tra il festival della mente di Sarzana e il mare di Lerici, Arcola e' stata una scelta vincente. Paesaggi bellissimi che conoscevamo poco. Le cene a Sarzana nel posto consigliato da Giacomo ha completato una piccola vacanza che è' stata veramente (website hidden) villa che ci ha ospitato e la cordialità di Giacomo ci ha fatto sentire veramente a casa. Consiglio l esperienza a tutti e, se tornerò da quelle parti, so già dove andare.

  • My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Villa. The instructions were very clear and we enjoy the place and Italy. The Villa is located in a wonderful spot, you have a great view and after a long day in the crowded Cinque Terre, you can enjoy a relaxing and quiet night at the Villa.
    Our host Giacomo was always very helpful and open. We had a small problem with the car and Giacomo helped us to communicate with the locals. He gave us suggestions about places to go, when is the better time and the best transport alternatives for our situation. We really appreciate this, because we thought that without the car it will be hard, but with his help, we were able to enjoy our last days.
    We recommend the Villa and the Host 100%.

  • We stayed two nights at Giacomo's beautifull place that's located nearby the cinque terre. His place is a real classic villa 20 min. from the cinque terre. When arriving there Giacomo takes his time to explain about the place and how you can travel the best way to the cinque terre. We had a great time and definitly would recommend his place.

    July 2013
  • It was a great pleasure to stay at Isa and Giacomo's Villa Ducci. The villa was absolutely charming and perfectly located, near Cinque Terre and La Spezia.

    The room was nicely furnished and well equipped. In the morning while having a nice breakfast we enjoyed the fresh air and the beautiful view from the terrace.

    Giacomo provided us a lot of information about the nearby cities, where to eat, what to do and of course the trip to Cinque Terre. He even helped us to find the perfect accommodation for our next stop in Tuscany. Thank you so much!

    Ciao Osric & Kathelene

  • The villa was very nice - especially liked all the original furniture and decor. Giacomo and Ilsa were perfect hosts, and Giacomo provided us with a wealth of useful information and hints and tips about the area.

hi, we are a cosmopolitan couple Ecuador-Italian, we like quite and slowly travel ( not safary or climbing Everest) in friendly country (where they speak our languages: Italian, Spanish, French, English and some Portuguese). In 1999 I open my Guesthouse in my family XVI century villa on the hills between Tuscany and Cinque Terre. We own also two apartments in Monterosso al Mare (Cinque Terre), but we rent only one. My guests usually like a lot stay in my accommodation as you can read in my Villa DUCCI ' s guestbook or on TripAdvisor. I am a very polite guest as I have a large experience what can make upset a host. My 5 favourite thinks are: 1) snorkelling - swimming - hiking in Cinque Terre; 2) take care of Oliva trees; 3) discuss with my guests about italian and foreign countries; 4) eat ice-cream (mainly homemade ); 5) slow, quite, lazy travelling. One of my mottos: si vales bene est ego valeo : If you're fine, that's well, I am fine too.
