Cinque Terre, Poet’s Gulf, Portovenere

Liguria of Wonders

The Cinque Terre: they are a part of coast of eastern Liguria. It comprehends: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore. Since 1997 they are part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Cinque Terre are one of the most striking Italian coastlines, where man has succeeded over time, in harmony with the territory, to create a unique environment from a traditional millennial lifestyle.

A corner of paradise, places touched by elegance. If it is true….Shelley and Byron, English poets of the Romanticism era, these are names which frequently echo in this part of Liguria that borders Tuscany. And possibly the best nature poet, William Wordsworth, expressed his unique experience of a visit to these places of natural beauty: emotion recollected in tranquillity.

But to fully enjoy such an experience one needs to relive it, remembering the emotion of the moment in a sort of “otherness”, in a not so distant place, equally wonderful. A place which blends natural beauty, art, fragrance, pleasure passing through the geography of Apuane Alps, the history of Malaspina Castle and the music by the famous composer Pietro Alessandro Guglielmi: Villa Bonini.

A charming villa that offers elegance and luxury as well as a warm and welcoming atmosphere: a place suited for everyone who wants to spend some time in touch with nature and in total comfort, thanks to an attentive reception of guests’ desires and needs and a service of excellence.

The villa, which is now used as a Relais and dates back to 17th century, is located in the heart of Massa City in the Monte di Pasta park. It has been recently refurbished in compliance with the finishes of the historical period with particular care and attention in the use of materials. The villa, famous for being the home of Pietro Alessandro Guglielmi (one of the greatest Italian composers of the 18th century), is surrounded by a garden with secular palm trees and embellished by a bronze fountain of the early 20th century. A path in the terraces that face directly on the villa leads directly to “Monte di Pasta” park, where you can have a magnificent panoramic view of the whole city and the coast.
