The apartment is set in the square of the port of Lerici with a priceless view of the sea and the ancient castle. The result of a very recent refurbishment, the property is spread over three floors, alternating tradition and design in a skilful interplay of volumes. The access is by the street level from which, via a fascinating private staircase, on enter in the house. Here are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a splendid living area with windows on the roofs and a kitchen with dining room developed around an elevated internal courtyard which gives access to the two enchanting terraces which constitute the fulcrum of the summer life of the house. The terraces set on two levels, a sort of livable roof garden, embrace the view of the Gulf and at the same time guarantee privacy for elegant outdoor dinners. To complete the property, a very large 40 sqm garage that can comfortably accommodate two cars and motorbikes or small cars.
Lerici is located in the Eastern side of Italian Riviera and is one of the most important towns of the Poets Gulf. Beloved by Lord Byron, it is also referenced in Dante's Divine Comedy. Along the Poets Gulf are other villages such as San Terenzo with its castle and Villa Magni which is where the famous poet Percy Blythe Shelley and his wife Mary Shelley lived. A few kilometers away is the beautiful town of Portovenere. The typical cuisine of the region includes “testaroli”, anchovies and fried salted cod, washed down with the excellent local white wine “Terre di Lerici”.
