Description(Reference number: 77806)
Enjoy your own piece of paradise at this 5-bedroom villa on the Italian Riviera. You’re greeted by the paved garden, which has a lounge area with a sofa and armchairs, set among olive trees, and a shaded dining table under the gazebo, pretty as an aviary. The private pool is surrounded by a teak sundeck with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. Step through the French doors into the pristine white living room and dining area, where a jumble of vintage chairs around the table add a touch of playfulness. Upstairs, several of the bedrooms have terraces and sea views – this home is perched on a hillside, high above the water. Or, bag the apartment bedroom with its own entrance and kitchenette. The home is just outside Lerici, a coastal town with pastel-coloured houses in northwest Italy’s Liguria region. Affectionately known as the ‘Bay of Poets’ thanks to the many artists it’s inspired, the area is known for its picturesque seascapes and pretty beaches – the villa is just a short walk down a footpath to the sea. While activities like sailing, diving, hiking, mountain biking, tennis and golf are all on your doorstep, the host can also arrange additional perks, like an in-house chef, private airport transfers and car rental.
