Ricco’ del Golfo – Cinque Terre – Liguria

Villa Clara is a comfortable family summer home located just above the village of Ricco’ del Golfo in Liguria. The villa is located on a 15 acre estate of vineyards, within easy walking distance to the village where there are local shops and restaurants. The village is a 15 minute drive from La Spezia and about a 30 minute drive into the Cinque Terre towns. The highway is a 10 minute drive from the villa, which makes it a convenient base for visiting towns like Pisa, Lucca, Florence and Portofino. Perched on the top of a hill the villa also offers wonderful views of the surrounding hillside and the village below. Guests will enjoy daily excursions to many wonderful places and coming home to their own relaxing villa for the evenings. Villa Clara dates to the early 1900?s, and the there are many antique furnishings, paintings, and memorabilia. It has the authentic feel of an Italian country farmhouse yet it is just behind the hills and sea of the CinqueTerre. For expert hikers, some of the famous hiking trails of the Cinque Terre park start about a mile away from the villa and reach what is know as the High Path that leads down to the village of Vernazza. Otherwise, the CinqueTerre may be reached by car or by train from La Spezia.


On the villa’s first floor is a comfortable living room with original ceiling frescoes from the early 1900?s and a large fireplace. Adjacent is a generous dining room that is connected to the kitchen, newly remodeled in 2005, with a gas oven, dishwasher, washing machine, refrigerator/freezer, microwave oven and American coffee maker. From the kitchen window is a lovely view of the garden and vineyards. Exiting the kitchen door is a lovely furnished patio area in the garden for al fresco dining.All of the bedrooms are located on the second floor. They have all been tastefully and comfortably furnished. The master bedroom has a nice balcony with a view over the vineyards and the local village below. Three of the bedrooms have double beds and two of the bedrooms have twins. The two bathrooms are also located upstairs. One has a shower and the second has a tub with a handheld shower.Villa Clara is well located for touring Liguria and enjoying the Italian countryside. The owner is American so she can help you lots of local information. Cook and maid are also available. The villa also has wireless internet and has been well equipped for a comfortable stay in this beautiful area of Liguria. For wine lovers, at Villa Clara, the owners grow with great passion the local grapes to produce wines like Vermentino, Albarola and Barbera.

Twice a year, there is a kind couple that stays in a separate apartment on premises to allow for the pruning of the vineyards. They are very discrete. Note that between the end of September and the beginning of October, it is harvesting time and Villa Clara is actually a working vineyard. Guests who wish to participate and experience what harvesting is all about… are more than welcome. We are sure that guests will enjoy Villa Clara with it’s authentic atmosphere and beautiful surroundings!
