This property overlooks a Mediterranean bay so beautiful, the likes of Byron found his inspiration here. The 1-bed apartment has spectacular sea views, a large terrace and open-plan living space, communal pool and gardens. Lerici is a charming town with everything you need to enjoy a seaside retreat.
The accommodation is all on one level. The open-plan living space feels very spacious, particularly with the floor to ceiling glass doors and that amazing view beyond. In addition to the kitchen and living room, there is a shower room and a double bedroom with a separate dressing room area.
The terrace is a particular feature of the property. Covering 50sqm, there are two joined, but distinct areas. There is a large space immediately outside the sitting room with a sun-shade awning where the current owner has a large table for alfresco dining. There is also an adjoining area where, with some atmospheric lighting and comfy seating, you could create a really special place to sit and enjoy the view - the perfect spot for an early evening cocktail as the sun sets.
Situated up a private road in the hills and countryside 2.8km above the town, the apartment is in a block with 39 properties in total. The communal swimming pool and gardens are beautifully kept and there is a private car parking space.
Lerici is a charming Mediterranean seaside town with beautiful sandy beaches, a marina, shops, bars and, of course, lots of lovely piazzas and restaurants along the harbourside The best, I am reliably informed, is Jeri, a restaurant perched right on the end of the bay that specialises in seafood - it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a lively evening. The traditional fishing ports of Fiascherino and Tellaro are also well worth a visit, particularly around lunchtime!
At the northern end of the bay, the town of San Terenzo is also with easy reach. Again, there is plenty to explore here including a beautiful sandy beach the ideal spot for an ice-cream and a coffee while taking in the view. Both Lerici and San Terenzo are popular holiday destinations and in the summer there are ferries to Portovenere, Levanto, Portofino, Genova and, not to be missed of course, Cinque Terre. The ferry is a very civilised way to explore the nearby towns without having to take on the holiday traffic.
There are 3 international airports nearby - Florence, Genoa and Bologna, all are within easy reach. A wide range of services and amenities can be found 15mins away in the large town of La Spezia. This apartment has huge potential. It is the perfect bolt-hole by the sea.
