The Liguria region
The varied landscape of this area provides a wealth of different holiday settings for our guests.The dramatically rocky coastline of the Cinque Terre, with its exhilarating clifftop hiking-trails, gives way to sophisticated seaside resorts skirting bays with sandy beaches, washed by the warm turquoise water of the Mediterranean sea.
Ranging from just such superb coastal locations in the Cinque Terre area, to those of the adjoining Tuscan coast and countryside.
