From the garden you can enter a lovely dependence, that sleeps 2
people and consists of an attic double bedroom, small kitchen/dining
room, a bathroom with shower and a tiny terrace.

Every apartment has independent heating throughout (except for the

stay and an ideal starting point for excursions and hikes: the choice
is yours to make: explore the hills (on foot if you like) and valleys,
or drive half an hour to the coast at Lerici and Portovenere - the
