The accommodation lies in one of the most enchanting and fascinating areas of Liguria. The well-known "Golfo dei Poeti" is a coastline of a thousand colours, unique and evocative with its green hills and crystal clear water. Lerici offers a castle and a golf course dominating the gulf. The spectacular scenery in the villages of "The Cirque Terre", reachable by boat leaving from the port of Lerici are well worth a visit. For trekking and cycling there are many routes just a stone’s throw from the house. Beach 500m. Shop 9km, restaurant 200m.

    I booked this accommodation based almost entirely on the photos provided. They are quite misleading and give the impression that the place is larger than it is. About a week before our holiday I noticed a one star review which worried me so I was expecting the worst. In order to redress the balance I will give an honest but measured review of this accommodation. Firstly, the road that the house is on is indeed a bumpy track but definitely passable and we drove up and down every day during our stay. We did see a wild boar on our final evening which was fun for us all and quite a treat. Secondly, the pool is very small and I feel that this has been fudged slightly on the description with no picture present and nothing really to explain that it’s a stand alone upright pool. It’s a bit galling when you know the main house the other side of the gate has a stunning pool - it might be better to stare that instead. The jacuzzi pool is cold but in 32 degrees of heat it’s perfect. The outside furniture was broken when we arrived but the owner fixed it so it was usable. The outside space was acceptable but not how it appears in the photos. The accommodation was quite well appointed but definitely not big enough for 4 people. The main bedroom has next to no storage and the only way we could function as a family of four was to put the dining table and chairs outside. The kitchen was poorly equipped - no tin opener, no chopping board - loads of plates though! Beds were extremely comfortable. Montemarcello is an absolute gem of a place which we fell in love with and the owner could have given us some more information about it when we arrived as we were under the impression that there was nothing more than a pizzeria but there’s so much more! If you want to stay in this village and you’re a couple then this place is ok but if you’re a family of four maybe check out the owners other properties with the gorgeous pool.

    This is a converted garage. As befits a garage it is at the bottom of the owners garden. Pierro, whilst very nice, would just stroll in to the garden when he wanted, even if my girls were sunbathing, we were eating or playing cards. La Chicca is too small for 4 people. In fact as Pierro showed us in he said that as the weather was nice we could live outside. (Watch out for mosquitos). The sofa bed took up all of the living space. The children had to store their suitcases under the table so we could have a walkway to the kitchen. The kitchen is interesting, the cupboards are high- almost beyond reach. I’m 5’5’’. The microwave is so high that the plug cable is not long enough to reach the plug. Pillows were lumpy and there is no access to a washing machine. Outside- We were told we could not heat the hot tub as it ‘used 1 kilowatt and cost too much.’ The garden furniture in the photos was not actually there but much cheaper furniture of which some was broken. The pool was a stand alone structure where the sides are kept rigid by the volume of water. No pump to clean it therefore it was quite dirty. La Chicca is in the mountains so certainly not 500m from the beach as advertised. Also the owners told us to pay €109 cash to them for cleaning, something that was not advertised. This was refunded to me. Rules also included not being allowed to play a radio or make noise in case we disturbed the owners- yes it’s written in the welcome pack. The entrance to the property is a good walk from the public car park down a rubble dirt road and the wooden garden gate does not identify that this is La Chicca so it took us forever to find the place. One night we returned late to find a family of wild boar at the entrance to the dirt track. Luckily they weren’t interested in us. La Chicca is NOT a few steps away from the centre of Montemarcello! There is a nice evening restaurant within walking distance but that’s it. Italy is beautiful and has so much to offer- stay elsewhere though.
