villa layout
Rapallo is situated in the remotest part of the Gulf of Tigullio, a place much loved and praised by poets and writers, where charming seaside villages with safe, welcoming ports alternate with rugged cliffs and bays with crystal clear waters, protected by hills covered in dense Mediterranean scrub. Rapallo is a small town with a long tradition as a tourist destination thanks to its stunning, well equipped beaches, marina and many beauty spots. La Trusera di Mare is located in a residential area of the town, just 3 km from the center, amidst the luxuriant greenery of the promontory of Portofino which is less than 10 minutes away. At the bottom of the small lane that climbs up the hill is the Rapallo 18-hole golf course, considered to be one of the most scenic courses in Italy. The large, very comfortable apartment has a completely independent entrance and garden (there is only one other apartment in the building): it is accessed via a gate on the lane. The garden's terraces are very well tended, filled with flowers and provided with sunbeds. They also offer delightful corners where guests can sit outside and enjoy the view of the surrounding hills. On the main floor level, in addition to a covered veranda with dining table, there is a beautiful swimming pool - Hydromassage (3.5 x 5.5 m, that can be heated by solar panels and be used also during the months of mid-season, 100 € а week), a barbecue and a small annex facing the swimming pool. The indoor areas have been furnished with care and are very warm, welcoming and comfortable. The owner, an excellent chef, is happy to prepare evening meals for guests featuring quality local dishes and can also provide information about the best places for bathing, the most interesting itineraries along the coast or further inland, as well as the pathways to follow in order to explore this enchanting corner of Liguria. Air-conditioning in bedrooms. WI-FI.
A small welcome dinner made with local products is offered by the owner if booked at time of booking.
Discount for 2 or more weeks.

"We had a fantastic time at La Trusera di Mare, the owner of the house was every so welcoming and always available if we needed her. She gave us lots of information if the area, but was also so kind, she even got some toys out and inflatables for our daughter to use. The house and gardens were in a beautiful condition and had everything we needed. The views were lovely and the area was so quiet and peaceful. The location of the house was great for visiting so many places. We had a wonderful holiday and would definitely stay at La Trusera di Mare again if we go back to Italy .

Many thanks

"This house is lovely, the owner is even more lovely! You could not ask for more spectacular views. The nights are so quiet and star filled. The house is well appointed with everything you could possibly need for your stay. There were 5 of us and we had plenty of room. Grocery, bakery and butcher is just at the bottom of the hill to the left. You will need your own transportation. I hope to return to San Massimo and to La Trusera di Mare.
