Chose Serena's house 2nd time.)
Serena was a wonderful host for our stay in La Spezia. Her mother Nadia was also lovely and very hospitable. The room is a self contained little villa with a comfortable bed and good shower. The villa is the perfect base for a visit to Cinque Terre and the Ligurian coast, especially if you have a car. Free parking is available about 30 metres from the villa, just around the corner. I would definitely recommend staying with Serena!
We felt very welcome and comfortable in the house of Serena. The possibility of using the small kitchen in the garden and the garden itself is an added plus. We can recommend this place even with children. The mother of Serena and also the dogs seemed to enjoy our little boy. Thanks very much!
don't hesitate a second and choose to spend a few days in serena's house. Everything remind you "the dolce vita" cute room, gorgeous garden, and sweet people. Serena's mother is lovely, Paolo the dog gives you a nice welcome every morning and Serena take time to give you tips for the places you have to discover and is absolutly friendly . One more supra big thanks it was amazing!!!!
Beatuiful place, with a lovely family to look after us. Comfortable beds with plenty of fresh towels. Best breakfast ever which we enjoyed in a beautiful garden setting. The place is a little hard to find at first. We arrived by car and spend a day doing the walk from Monterosso to Vernazza. We went to the train station takes 5- 10 minutes and parked our car in the underground car park. We took the train to Moterosso about 20 minutes so everything is easily to get to. I highly recommmend Serena's place.
First the accomodation: the appartment was brilliant. Nice, clean, cosy and modern all in an old-fashioned country house with stylish features like tables and light. The bathroom was very up to date.
We couls use all of the property i.e. the terrace.
The appartment is up in the hill just outside La Spezia (10mins by bike but hilly). The owners (Serena herself and her parents) live right next door and are good hosts. We had friendly chats, had everything we needed and Serena gave us recommandations on what do do, where to go and best mean of transport.
Serena herself is lovely - helpful, interested and always up for a chat.
We felt very welcome in that mountainous neighborhood with a view into the hills.
I would highly recommend this place if ypu want to visit the Cinque Terre.
Serena was a great host !
The house is really nice and very stylish and we had our own separate entrance.Great location away from town in a rural setting but only minutes from the new shopping centre.Breakfast on the terrace was great and also Serena recommended some great alternate locations to cinque terre which were fantastic.
Serena is very warm, patient and kind. She gave us a lot of structured information and explanation about the area/sightseeing. The private room is beautiful, clean and with eye for detail. The bathroom has a good shower. There are also tea and coffee facilities. Breakfast was basic (sweet) and with lots of fresh fruit. Having a car or scooter is convenient, perhaps necessary even. Nearby is La Terazza, a very big mall with lots of free parking and open till 22.00 hrs.
We had a perfect stay at this wonderful place. Serena and her family are lovely people.
You can take a nice breakfast with fresh fruits in this wonderful garden.
Her mother makes very good olive oil that we could also buy.
Its perfect for trips to 5 terre, lerici, porto venere...or if there is very bad weather there is a shopping center some minutes with the car away.
Thank you for all!!
Martina and family
So nice to have a separate guest entrance. Tea and coffee were available in the guest area and cooking facilities and fridge for guest use. Great to have tourist guides and maps readily available. A wonderful dinner enjoyed as an extra offer along with a washing option. Serena speaks very good English and provided wonderful touring suggestions. Such an enjoyable stay.
