The Italian Riviera region
Liguria extends along the Mediterranean coast from the French border at Menton to the estuary of the river Magra, south of the city of La Spezia. It is the most popular part of Italy with Italian holidaymakers and remains unspoiled and pristine. Known as the Italian Riviera, and largely unknown outside the country it offers a unique opportunity to experience a holiday as the Italians do, enjoying the fine food and wine, the beautiful climate and the wonderful beaches. You can marvel at the Cinque Terre, soak up the medieval atmosphere in Sarzana, visit the Roman ruins at Luni, and perhaps check out the Luni vinyards while about it!
San Terenzo is where the poets Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron lived until Shelley's death by drowning. Now known as the Gulf of Poets, this area offers an immense range of attractions and facilities and is a most convenient base for exploring the Cinque Terre and the renaissance cities of Tuscany, enjoying the opera at the Torre del Lago Puccini Festival, experiencing the joys of the spotless beaches and the blue of the Mediterrean while dining on the best seafood and crisp wines to be found in Italy. Markets and festivals abound, ranging from the popular Saturday morning market in Lerici to the gastronomic festas in Montemarcello and Sarzana.
All this can be managed without a car, thanks to the excellent bus and train service.

"What a little Gem"
We stayed at Casa San Terenzo in June of this year. What a little gem of a place, spotlessly clean, very well equipped and tastefully decorated not to mention the wonderful terrace and view.
A fabulous location to explore the surrounding countryside - Cinque Terre is accessible by a pleasant boat trip along the coast, however the walk along the promenade to Lerici is a must in the early morning sunshine.
All in all a most pleasant holiday and I would highly recommend a stay at Casa San Terenzo.
Thank you very much for your lovely comments. We are delighted that your stay at Casa San Terenzo went so well and that you liked the area ......it is a beautiful place and we love to know that our guests love it as much as we do! Welcome back anytime. You were wonderful guests.

"Amazing place, amazing flat, amazing holiday!"
This flat is for those who are seeking a beautifully furnished and equipped bolt hole, with large rooms and modern facilities, just a 2 minute walk from the beach and from local shops.
Super outside space - we are a family of four and there was plenty of room for dining on the terrace and playing lots of games of cards in the balmy evening air. There is everything here that one could wish for and with so many good quality food shops close by, it would be hard to go wrong in this fabulous apartment and this great little town.
We are absolutely delighted that your holiday went so well. We are also very pleased that Casa San Terenzo lived up to your expectations and that you liked it so much. Thank you for your kind comments and welcome back anytime! You were wonderful guests.

"Casa San Terenzo is #1: a beautiful family apartment on the piazza across from the beach."
Our family spent an absolutely wonderful week at Casa San Terenzo. Your apartment is as advertised: beautifully designed, modern, charming, comfortable, good kitchen, terrace with a view and more! My daughter and her husband enjoyed it as did our 14-year-old twin grandkids and Linda and I.
The apartment is on the Piazza in San Terenzo right across from the beach and the 2km Promenade along the Bay of Poets to central Lerici and the ferry to the amazing Cinque Terre towns. San Terenzo's cafe's serve fine food in friendly settings. We also enjoyed visiting Lerici and Sarzana. Parking up the hill an eight minute walk away was reasonable for a week. We will be back since there is a lot more to see!
We are very pleased to know that you enjoyed your stay at Casa San Terenzo so much. I am delighted that you found everything as advertised and to your satisfaction. The area is indeed lovely with lots to do and see so it will be a pleasure to welcome you back to Casa San Terenzo so you can enjoy it all again! Thank you.
