Land and Sea of Liguria

Liguria is a beautiful region between the sea and the Apennines. The coastal side is the famous Italian Riviera, for years the haunt of the rich and famous including Portofino and the Cinque Terre.

Liguria is rich in vegetation and has many spectacular vistas and natural itineraries in its regional parks and reserves.

The area offers many areas for walking and hiking. The beautiful coastline provides many opportunities for horse- riding, cycling, and on-foot excursions. The Alta Via dei Monti Liguri stretches along 400km of mountains crossing a landscape typically characterized by lush vegetation and rugged cliffs.

The sea is another great resource of this region, rich in marine life which includes porpoises and dolphins. These can be spotted in the sea mammal sanctuary established to protect this maritime area.

The Tigullio bay, enclosed by the nature reserve of the mount of Portofino and the peninsula of Sestri Levante, offers splendid views of the Mediterranean.

Welcome home!

We truly hope you’ll enjoy a relaxing (or even exciting) vacation in the friendly and genuine atmosphere of our recently renovated structure which, for centuries, was an olive mill that produced a renowned olive oil.

Our family has returned to this land after living in London for many years. Didi works as an illustrator for important publishing houses and when you come visit us, you’ll be able to admire some of her works.

We live next door to the villas and will be glad to meet you and welcome you.

See you soon,

Adriana e Didi Coppola
