VILLETTA GARDENIA * LAST MINUTE OFFER!!* 50% OFF! For the last week available in June

Sleeps 2 to 4

2 Bedrooms, 2 en suite Bathrooms

Sleeping 4 people, this elegantly converted and restored country villa was originally used as a barn in past centuries and still stands just across the courtyard from the grand farmhouse – likewise now renovated – that it once served.

Set high among the lush green hills which border Liguria and Tuscany and surrounded by a vast olive grove, it guarantees utmost privacy and seclusion and occupies the perfect spot for peaceful relaxation. In addition, the villa’s outdoor jacuzzi pool invites you to bathe at leisure in its heated waters, undisturbed by the clamour of the outside world!

From this privileged elevated position, extensive scenic views can be enjoyed, stretching right from the Apuan Alps inland to the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. The Cinque Terre villages too are very close at hand.


The property extends over three floors, as follows: At ground-floor level, a former winter conservatory has now been transformed into a lovely, light-filled dining-room, incorporating a lounge area and kitchenette. This modern fitted kitchen is fully equipped with oven; fridge/freezer, dishwasher; toaster; and espresso and American coffee-makers. Issuing from here, the utility room accommodates a washing-machine and dryer.

Positioned just outside the dining-room, a few external steps lead you upstairs to the first-floor sleeping quarters. These consist of a romantic double bedroom, with ensuite bathroom with shower, as well as a lovely adjoining terrace, furnished with table, chairs and sunshade.

From this level a wooden staircase proceeds to the top floor, where the second double bedroom is located, complete with its own ensuite bathroom with shower and a luxurious sauna, for when you feel like pampering yourself!

The house is tastefully and stylishly furnished and decorated throughout and careful attention has been paid to every detail of comfort and convenience a guest could require. Both bedrooms are fitted with air-conditioning; Sat.TV; CD-player; and mini-bar. The first-floor bedroom also provides a safe. Embroidered towels and bathrobes are likewise supplied. At the further disposal of guests are the following: a cell phone; breakfast provided, but not served; organic produce from the villa’s vegetable garden.

Villetta Gardenia is indeed surrounded by an extensive garden, brightly planted with colourful, scented seasonal flowers. Beyond this, a large olive grove forms a restful backdrop. An elegant wooden gazebo, appointed with table and wickerwork chairs, allows you to enjoy this beautiful natural setting in welcome shade or to linger over breakfast, lunch or dinner al fresco. Completing this idyllic scene is the spacious, warm-water jacuzzi (3x3 metres), encircled by tempting sunshades and comfortable loungers, and with its own hot, outdoor shower alongside.

Please note: The property-owners themselves reside in the converted farmhouse building situated in the same grounds, just a few metres from Villetta Gardenia. However, each house has its own private entrance and garden and it goes without saying that the property-owners are at all times fully respectful of their guests’ privacy.

Superbe location proche des "Cinque Terre"

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour formidable à la villa de Fabiana et Antonio.

La maison est superbe, très agréable et aménagée avec beaucoup de goût (c'est encore mieux en vrai que sur les photos), très bien équipée et d'une propreté irréprochable. Le jardin est très agréable et très bien entretenu par Antonio. Beaucoup de terrasses aménagées pour les différents moments de la journée, pour d'agréables petits déjeuners, apéros, dîners .... avec une magnifique vue.

Le super jacuzzi pour se relaxer au retour de nos visites a été très apprécié.

Nos hôtes Fabiana et Antonio sont très accueillants et sympathiques, très serviables et discrets. L'assortiment d'antipasti et de primi confectionnés par Fabiana pour notre arrivée étaient excellents.

De plus la région est magnifique: Pise, Lucca, Les Cinque Terre avec leurs magnifiques villages colorés .... le tout en moto, c'était superbe !

En résumé d'excellentes vacances ! Nous y reviendrons ...

Wonderful holiday location

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful house with two wonderful hosts! We had a great stay at the viletta with our two kids (2 years and 6 months). Fabiana and Antonio gave us so many tips for trips to Lucca, Portovenere and sourroundings and spoiled us with delicious italian appetizers. Everything is decorated with so much attention to detail, making you feel right at home.

Thanks for making our holiday so special! Best regards from Cologne, Germany

Superb villa, beautiful setting, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were completely blown away by the quality of the accommodation and the hospitality of Antonio and Fabiana - the photos on the website don't begin to do the villa and gardens justice. We arrived to a kitchen full of fresh provisons and home cooked food and the owners were always available to give helpful advice on local trips. We loved the jacuzzi, the sauna, the well equipped kitchen and the beautiful setting among the olive trees on the hillside.The family loved it and we hope to return soon.

Lots of love,

Comfortable and lovely

  • 5 of 5

Villetta Gardenia is a very comfortable and lovely accommodation. It is suitable for two couples or a family of four. It has two beautifully appointed bedrooms both with bath and AC, an open, airy and well stocked kitchen and an lovely outdoor sitting area adjacent to the spa hot tub where you can enjoy the magnificent views of the valley below and the Mediterranean in the distance. It also has a sauna in the upstairs bath, as well as, a small terrace off the first floor bedroom. The well maintained grounds are covered with many flowering plants and olive trees.. Fabiana and Antonio, the owners, are very warm and very friendly people. They are very gracious hosts, were attentive to our needs, very helpful in answering questions and in pointing out good places to visit and good local restaurants. Antonio, on several, occasions, actually had us follow him on his motor bike as he personally showed the way to a restaurant in Sarzana. The Villeta is an exceptional venue to explore the entire Ligurian coast from La Spezia to Portofino. It is especially well situated for visiting the Cinque Terra. In addition you can also easily travel south to Pisa and to the walled city of Lucca in an hour or so away, depending on traffic, of course. While a car is a necessity, you are also very close to the train station in Carrara where you can quickly, and inexpensively, travel all along the entire coast by train. Since the Villeta is situated in the hills right above Carrara you can make a day trip to visit the marble quarries and the marble mine. It is also a short car drive to the lovely mountain top villages of Ortonovo and Nicola, to the city of Sarzana and the sea coast village of Boca di Magra. There are many good restaurants in the area serving great food and local wines, as well as, Ligurian specialties and wonderful seafood. All of this would not have been possible were it not for Francesca from Sea and Country Villas. She was extremely attentive to our needs and requests. On a business trip to Milan in early June, Francesca very graciously agreed to meet me at the Villeta and to provide me with a tour of the property which we had only seen on the internet. She made sure everything was in place before we arrived and checked up on how everything went after we returned home. We are very grateful to Francesca for her excellent customer service, her attention to detail and her warm and friendly personality. John New Jersey, USA

We have truly enjoyed our stay here and I highly recommend it.

This was our first trip to Tuscany and indeed our first house rental anywhere outside of the U.S. We had no idea of what to expect. The location is beautiful. It isn't exactly as I had pictured it in reading about it online and from reading other reviews, but it is beautiful. The property itself could not be lovelier. There are many olive trees, there are abundant flowers, there are hedges that provide privacy. In fact the privacy afforded is a real highlight. You can see that they really paid attention to that aspect.

Fabiana and Antonio were wonderful hosts! Warm, welcoming and gracious. They speak very little English however, so, it would be a good idea to brush up on your Italian before coming. Or, at the very least, keep your phrase book handy! Just know that you won't be able to communicate in English. We were not expecting that.

The road leading to the property is kind of scary with several blind curves. Just be aware and drive carefully.

There is a very narrow, quite long, gated driveway leading to the house. You will either have to back out of the driveway when you leave or become good at "back and fill" turn arounds.

For our arrival Fabiana had prepared several wonderful snacks for us. In fact, it was enough for us to breakfast and supper on for three days! It was all marvelous. Cheeses, grapes, oranges, lemons, panettone, bruschetta, bread, cookies, olive oil, teas and coffee, wine and even Prosecco!

The kitchen and living area are in separate parts of the home from the bedrooms. You need to go out side to access the kitchen/family room. It is nice in that it provides privacy.

The kitchen had all the pots and pans and silverware and dishes that one needs to make a fairly extensive meal.

One of our main reasons for choosing the Villetta Gardenia was the fact that they had a king size bed! In fact, they have one in each of the two bedrooms! The bathrooms were good sized (except the WC) and the shower was excellent. Although we did run out of hot water a couple of times. Be aware if a lot of you are showering.

One thing that was kind of irritating was the wifi. It is provided by means of a hotspot. It was very erratic and in fact did not work most of the time. I assume that it is because of the local cell tower as our cell phones did not receive data well either.

This was a wonderful experience for us and I highly recommend the Villetta Gardenia!
