Le Murella is a recently restored house set in a national park crowning the hill of MonteMarcello, in a small dell surrounded by Holm oaks. Set in its own terraced garden, this house is in an ideal position for exploring the hill villages and coast of the Cinque Terre, Liguria and Northern Tuscany; it’s also the perfect place to return to after your travels and relax under the pergola with a glass of local white wine.

The main bedroom, on the ground floorA wonderful pergola for al fresco mealsThe kitchen is well equipped


All ground floor rooms have French windows, making the outside pergola and garden part of the everyday use of the house and giving a very summery feel. Walking in from the large pergola one enters an elegantly furnished living-dining room focuses on an ancient fireplace, flanked by the corridor leading to a very well-equipped kitchen, with a Smeg fridge and an antique glass cabinet. From the kitchen a door leads to a bathroom and to a high-ceilinged double bedroom, with French windows to the garden. The stairs lead up from the kitchen to a half-landing with twin bedroom and bathroom. Further up there is a last double bedroom with ensuite shower-room. In the garden there is a beautiful heated swimming pool built into the terraced slope. Solar panels keep this pool at a constant temperature of between 25 and 29 degrees centigrade from the 1st of May to the end of September.

Around Le Murella

The area around MonteMarcello is beautiful and the epitome of Mediterranean coastline – the smell of resin from the umbrella pines drifts around the limestone outcrops that hang high above the coast. Boats can take you round to secret coves at the bottom of the cliffs, and then on the little villages with wonderful fish restaurants. The cinque terre are at a stones throw, with miles of walking paths on the craggy coastline, punctuated by villages clinging to the edge of the coast, with steep vineyards where the grapes are collected in mini-funicular train arrangements! Closer to home, the villages of Tellaro and Fiascherino have swimming from rocky outcrops or sandy coves, and fish restaurants with local sparkling white wine. If the heat is getting too much head in opposite direction, for the Apuan alps made of white Carrara marble and dotted with medieval villages.
