In a countryside location in Liguria, near the border of Tuscany, Villa Nocturno is set on a hill dotted with beautiful villas. There is a supermarket and a couple of restaurants within a 5-minute drive whilst the pretty local village is just ten minutes away where you’ll find more charming restaurants, wine bars, shops and other useful facilities.

It’s only a ten-minute drive to the sea – head north to the glorious Ligurian beaches around the Golf of Poets or south to some of Tuscany’s finest seaside towns.

The lovely seaside town of Tellaro (20km), just south of La Spezia, is part of the ‘Gulf of Poets’ named after the fact that the region has inspired many poets in history including Byron and Shelley. Explore the narrow lanes, dine in a seafood osteria and relax on the stunning beach. Combine with a trip to the harbour town of Lerici (15km) on market day whilst keen walkers should follow the winding trail through olive groves to Montemarcello (15km) with amazing views of the gulf. Sea-worshippers should also head to the pine-backed beaches in Fiascherino (17km).

Also enjoy the exquisite vistas when visiting Portovenere, accessed via boat from La Spezia; its coastline has achieved UNESCO World Heritage status, also part of the Gulf of Poets as Byron stayed here. The old town is a maze of narrow lanes and picturesque houses to explore or head out to the national park where there are some excellent hiking trails.

This is also a great base for exploring the five villages of the National Park of Cinque Terre, which can be accessed by train or boat from La Spezia (or boat from Lerici). The landscapes are steep and rugged and the views just spectacular. The five villages include Monterosso al Mare with its amazing beaches, Vernazza, classified as one of Italy’s most beautiful villages, Corniglia, 100m above the sea and accessed only via the famous Lardarina footpath, charming Manarola and finally Riomaggiore to the south. Between Manarola and Rio Maggiore there is a famous “Path of Love” which is great for romantic walks.

Further south, the popular Tuscan seaside towns of Viareggio (42km) and Forte Dei Marmi (31km) are only short drive away and are home to smooth sand and lovely waters. Spend the day wandering found Forte Dei Marmi’s quaint little streets, unearthing hidden gems – from fashion boutiques to antique stalls – around every corner. Make sure you also check out the high-end Italian street market that’s held every Wednesday and Sunday.

If you’re feeling daring, why not try out some water-sports at Viareggio or surf the day away on the perfect waves? In the lead up to Easter, both tourists and locals head to the city for its wonderful carnival that’s famous in Italy. Amazing floats parade the streets, creating an indescribable atmosphere – dance to the music and get into the festival spirit!

The cities of Lucca (59km) and Pisa (60km) are also incredible places to visit and reached within an hour by car.

Nestled along the ruggedly beautiful Italian Riviera, Cinque Terre is a collection of five picturesque coastal villages that have become synonymous with charm, character, and an unparalleled sense of natural beauty. Each of these villages, Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore, is a jewel in its own right, with unique attractions and offerings that collectively make Cinque Terre an enchanting destination.


Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Situated close to Liguria’s coastline, there are loads of different beaches where the kids can play. Little ones can build sandcastles while older children snorkel for exotic sea creatures. Take them to the nearby villages, some of which contain little playgrounds and loads of places to eat where families are always welcomed. 

You’ll find lovely beach clubs and pedalos around the beaches of Lerici whilst to the south kids can enjoy all sorts of family-friendly activities including watersports around Viareggio.

For a big day out, head to Sunlight Park, one of Italy’s best, most exciting waterparks. Little ones can play in the smaller splash parks and shallow pools while the older kids explore the area. There are so many different slides to discover – bumpy, twisty, swirly – you name it!

  • Everything you need

    on 18/07/2019

    Perfect location for holidays with kids or (and) friends!!
    We spent 14 days at Massimo's villa and we would like to extend additional 14 days due to the great time we had! The accommodation has everything what you need and is in a really good shape. Mario is a great host! Every time available, but not intrusive. The recommendations of him were all perfect. The best days we had, were the dinners on terrace with sea view and spectacular sunsets!

  • Would not hesitate to book again

    on 16/05/2019

    We had a wonderful romantic time at this villa in spring time. The pool is perfectly sized for adults and kids. The surrounding areas have Restaurants, Wineries, Medieval villages, Castles, Churches and the beach!! There is even quite a vibrant night life on the weekends for those inclined. Overall would not hesitate to book it again.

  • Pretty villa with exceptional views

    on 20/06/2018

    The villa itself was pretty, very well equipped and comfortable - with plenty of room for a family with 3 teenage/adult children who needed their space! The outdoor area is gorgeous, and again very spacious, with a wonderfully clean pool which was perfect for relaxing and cooling down. From the poolside and the house itself there are exceptional views across the sea and the Magra's valley, which were breathtaking both day and night, with beautiful sunsets. We hope to return!

  • A pleasure to experience

    on 21/08/2017

    The villa was very clean and comfortable. The surrounding area is wild and gorgeous. I highly recommend Massimo's wine tours - he is very knowledgeable but not pretentious at all. All in all, one of the most welcoming destinations I have had the pleasure to experience as a traveler.

  • Fantastic concierge service

    on 21/05/2016

    We had a wonderful time at Villa Nocturno in Liguria! The villa was beautiful, clean and the owners were very kind and helpful. Olivers Travels concierge service exceeded our expectations and helped make our vacation very memorable. Thank you!!
