“Wonderful week in beautiful villa”

We spent a fabulous week in La Cicala. The villa and grounds were just what we were looking for. We spent many hours lounging by the pool and veranda. We cooked most dinners...grilling on the gas grill and eating on the large table outside. We played pink pong and pool and even a soccer match on the grounds. The boys ate some of the apples off the trees which were among the olive trees on the property. The bathrooms have all been remodeled and were very nice. We picked the rosemary and used in some of our dishes. The fourth bedroom upstairs has a low ceiling but worked fine for our adult son. We felt very secure and though we loved the days around the pool and grounds it was an easy ride to La Spezia with our GPS . We also drove to Portovenere and took a boat ride along the coast by Portofino and had lunch at Locana Lucinda one day. All in all a great stay and perfect for us. We would highly recommend for a family with young children.

“Special in La Spezia”

Villa Cicala is set in an elevated position overlooking the valley that sweeps up from La Spezia, the adjacent hills seem to wrap around to create a bowl and the views are lovely,
The villa is very well equipped, comfortably furnished and set within a well attended large garden in a quiet residential area but with easy access to the village and route to the coast.
All of the bedrooms are comfortable with lots of nice touches and the villa is very spacious with lots of quiet corners settle into and read.
The pool and the outside loggia is splendid and we spent most of our time out there enjoying the sunshine and also some evening meals when we were not visiting the local restaurants, the owner Barbara also arranged for a local chef to cook for us one evening which was very special indeed.
The area of La Spezia is stunning, the town itself is worth a days visit but the area has so much to offer, a 45 minute drive and you are in Portovenere ( more attractive than Portofino in my view ) with access to the Cinque Terre.
We had a lovely holiday at Villa Cicala and highly recommend it as a Special place to stay !
