Everything! This was definitely the best part of our trip to Italy. Before our arrival, we communicated with the lovely owner, Lilia who picked us up at the train station. Since our arrival was later in the afternoon, we requested for a cooked meal: gnocchi with fresh cherry tomatoes, cucumbers from the garden and freshly baked croissants with cheese.This meal...

If you are looking for a base to visit this beautiful region of Italy I recommend Il Laghello. Booking was easy, we stayed in the Acacie apartment, and even though there were four of us we found there was plenty of room.

Located in Framura, close to the Cinque Terre, the property itself is well situated/maintained with stunning views and we got the best room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Il Laghello di Amina is 5-hectare farm with two houses. We live in the pink house whereas the other one is divided in 5 apartments and two rooms. At the first floor, there are the Acacie studio, the Lavande studio and the Altomare apartment. At the ground floor, there are the Rosmarino studio and the Terramare apartment, which open directly on the garden. All of our apartments are conceived to offer peace and comfort, the "Dolce far Niente", as well as the best of the traditional Italian hospitality. My grandmother, Maria, who lived in this house before us, would not have allowed a guest to leave empty-handed or without drinking a cup of coffee. This Little Old World survived here in Framura. In fact, the village is unknown by mass tourism and, for this reason here it is still possible to experience the true Italian lifestyle. Here we grow our vegetables; we take care of our vineyard, of our olive trees and of orchard. Every year we try to clear a wooden area discovering pines, chestnuts, oaks, cherry trees, acacia tress, maple trees, alders, arbutus, hazel, heathers, and rosehip and blackberry bushes. Moreover, in the wood flows an unspoiled and clear stream and springs a source of sulphur water called fonte Castalia by the University of Pisa. Finally quiet corner there are our beehives always hardworking and aiming for the best of life and flowers. We moved in Framura in 2001 when we decided to come back and live in our grandparent's house that had been empty for forty years. In fact, this was the land that my grandfather inherited by his parents and where he came to live after his marriage. The name Laghello comes from the fact that the sea, view from here, framed by the ligurian hills with the French Alps in the background reminds of a lake (lago in Italian). At night, we can see the lights of Capo Noli and San Remo and at night the lights of the fishing boats mingle with fireflies, while from the sea comes a gentle breeze that cools the air and refreshes the spirit. The ancient Greeks claimed that the places of healing should be such as to have plenty of water, clean air, and beauty and love, we hope to able to offer you all of this here. The name Amina means strong and reliable, we thought we would need to be so to take care of Laghello and of our guests. We have three dogs living with us as well as many merry robins. In summer, we also have swallows from Africa and the falcons come out to hunt every day ad midday when the shadows are clear and precise. This stretch of the Ligurian cost is one of the greenest and most unspoiled in Italy. Here the light pollution is minimal ad you can still see the stars. Ten years after we moved in Laghello the desire and the need to entrench in this place led us to renovate the old house that winter after winter, was ageing next to ours. It was December 2009 when the bulldozer started demolishing those decrepit walls, giving way to the work and to new. To strain the planet as little as possible we decided to transform the old barn in a perfectly isolated wooden guesthouse with underfloor low temperature heating, windows and doors made in natural wood, rainwater collection and recycling, organic anallergic wall paint, a heat pump for heating and warm water and solar and photovoltaic panels. Moreover, we furnished each apartment paying attention even to the smallest details they are all spacious and high with terracotta floors, ceiling with exposed beams, furniture finished in natural wax produced by our bees and there is a free Wi-Fi connection available in the house and in the garden. For us this was a dream that became project and, now, is finally real. We did everything to put together practice, energy saving, beauty and harmony to create a special and welcoming atmosphere. Our guesthouse is divided in five spacious and comfortable apartments. Each apartment is decorated with a different colour and has an independent bathroom and a kitchen as well as ironing and hand washing equipment. We have a private car park for our guest and the house is surrounded by a well-entertained wide garden with umbrellas, deck chairs and a pergola where to dine "al fresco" in summer evenings or have a nice "aperitivo" overlooking the valley and sea. ... more   less
