My wife and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary here and it was, in a word, PERFECT.
When you stay at this property you are in paradise. The views from everywhere are breathtaking, the pool is fantastic, there is a outdoor veranda that has an air conditioner (which we only used once on our trip - in the middle of July - because the breeze from the sea is so refreshing), and it's just the most picturesque place you can imagine. If you are interested only in a huge luxurious bedroom and master bathroom, then this isn't for you, but if that's what you're looking for, you're in the wrong place coming to San Terenzo/Lerici in the first place.
The landlord bends over backwards to make sure your stay goes flawlessly. She picked us up and dropped us off at the train station. There was a wonderful gift basket upon arrival and the fridge comes stocked with enough basics to get you started. It's a small but well equipped kitchenette inside and a grill outside (pre-chopped wood and lighter fluid for the grill are supplied) so you can prepare some of the meals yourselves if you'd like and there's a great grocery in the town below.
Speaking of the town, It's a 6 minute walk into literally the heart of San Terenzo, with great shops, restaurants, cafes, a bank and the public beach. The walk back up to the house is short but steep and definitely a good workout, so you may want to consider renting a scooter if you're not in good shape.
Lerici is a 30 minute walk along a gorgeous oceanfront boardwalk the entire way, and Lerici is where you can catch the ferry to Cinque Terre, or choose from even more restaurants, shops, beaches and there's also an ancient castle you can explore there.
In summary, I can tell you that this is one of those rare places where the photos really don't do the experience justice. It is geared towards couples, and it is the best spot in one of the most romantic places on earth. A sunset over the Gulf of Poets with a drink in hand out on the veranda will have you realizing why enough famous poets came here to have a gulf named after them.
