Very glad to welcome you in my House.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - the villa is set in the hills with the most wonderful view over the water and Lerici. Even when the weather is getting colder, the villa is cosy and very comfortable, making it the perfect place for a couple, friends or families. We would highly recommend this and hope to stay again in the future.
Nice place, but a little difficult to find the first time. However, we sent a short message to say we were having some difficulties and a few minutes later someone came to show us the way. The apartment is nice and quiet and a perfect place to relax and the location is perfect to visit Cinque Terre, La Spezia, Lerici and Pisa.
Arabella's home is one of the greatest locations we ever come across in all locations in Airbnb we stayed around the world. It has been very aesthetically designed and maintained home away from all city hustles. However, you need your own vehicle with gps to move conveniently around. The view from her place is mind blowing, whole valley with LIRICHI village and boat bay down below. You have 270 degree panoramic view of the west coast of Italy. I would any time recommend this place to anyone who likes to be spending few days in luxury and absolute peace abroad. Thank you Arabella for all your help.
This was one of the most charming places we have stayed at. Arabella is a wonderfully gracious host. She was very helpful with suggestions for activities and a seafood supper at a great restaurant in Lerici. The apartment was decorated in a most authentic way, but had all the amenities you could ask for. There was a wonderful garden where you could relax with a glass of wine. The drive up to the house was a little hair raising for us as we had a very large vehicle, but we had no mishaps. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Wonderful experience! Arabella was quick to respond to all correspondences, the flat was immaculately clean, and the location was stunningly beautiful. If you are driving, be sure your car is a small one, or you won't be able to get up the narrow drive. We had no trouble in our small rental car. Thanks Arabella, for the lovely weekend away!
very charming appartement!
Also take a walk through Arcola. It's so italian but without tourists!
Arabella's villa really does have an amazing view of the ocean and Lerici and is surrounded by a large terrace so there's plenty of space to enjoy it when outside. The house itself was also quite spacious, quiet, and private which was nice. Full disclosure- I'm a Canadian who is used to Canadian roads...so I found the roads leading up to the villa quite scary (narrow, winding, and huge drop offs). These probably would be no big deal for someone used to driving in Europe- just make sure your car is small!! Also the idealness of the location really depends on the intention of your holiday. My husband and I were using it as our base to explore Cinque Terre. With the cost of gas, parking, and train it turned out to be quite expensive- plus a long journey back to the villa after a full day of hiking or swimming wasn't very appealing. If you were looking to get away from it all and just bask in the Italian sun and views without extra touring this place would definitely be a fit.
This house has an absolutely stunning view over lerici and san terenzo. in the morning you have breakfast and in front of you is the sea sparkling in the sun. you watch the boats and the green hills and need nothing more. :) the house is very lovely furnished, as you see at the pictures. the house is up on the hill and you need a car to reach the next villages. close-by is a nice fishrestaurant where we had a very good and romantic dinner.
we love to think about our days spent there and would love to come back. arabella is a nice and uncomplicated host.
Lugar encantador con vistas sobre la ciudad desde su fantástica terraza. El apartamento es muy amplio, luminoso y cómodo. Muy limpio y decorado con gusto exquisito. Las camas muy cómodas. Arabella nos acompañó y nos facilitó toda la información necesaria. Una persona amable, educada y muy cercana. Sin duda volveríamos a repetir la experiencia.
We absolutely loved staying here. We came for our anniversary and we really enjoyed the surrounding environment. Arabella was great and communicated the entire time. She helped us out with recommendations. The apartment was very clean and the only complaint we have is we couldn't stay longer! We slept great and the area is beautiful and peaceful.
