The agriturismo

Villanova is a 17th century estate only a few minutes away from the most picturesque coastal villages in the world: the Cinque Terre.
The Baron Massola and his family formerly spent their summer holidays here, in the ancient agricultural estate Villanova, where tenacious farmers worked hard to produce the particularly fragrant olive oil and the quality wine of the Ligurian Riviera.

The accommodation

The farmholiday offers accommodations in the elegantly furnished baron’s villa, the ‘old ‘ priest’s house adjacent to the chapel and in two charmingly restored historic cottages.

Rooms and apartments are individually designed and restored by family Massola. They paid special attention to details in his effort to maintain the historical characteristics of Villanova. Antique furniture and family paintings give the guests the sensation of a journey into the past.
The rooms include standard doubles, junior suites and suites; they all have private bathrooms with shower and some have a kitchenette. Amenities include: organic breakfast buffet, parking, shuttle service, air conditioning/heating, Wifi, satellite TV, minibar, in room safe, telephone, hairdryer, organic courtesy set, fly screens.
The apartments and studios, all with fully equipped kitchens, are suitable for those who wish to spend a more independent holiday. Amenities include: parking, shuttle service, air conditioning/heating, Wifi, satellite TV, minibar, in room safe, telephone, hairdryer, organic courtesy set, fly screens.

A delicious breakfast buffet with organic and local products, served indoors or outside on our flower filled terrace, is included in the price of the rooms, but is also available for our guests who stay in the apartments.
All rooms and apartments have terraces or gardens with panoramic views. Tables and chairs, lounge beds, umbrellas and barbecue pits enable our guests to enjoy the “open air” life or a romantic dinner “under the stars”.
Our guests can park their vehicles safely in our private parking lot and we offer free shuttle service to town.

Activities and surrounding

The estate ideal location offers our guest a broad spectrum of activities.
Away from the crowds, situated in the open countryside, Villanova is a paradise for nature lovers and hikers. A hiking path connects Villanova directly to the famous and unique Cinque Terre National Park, listed in 1998 as a world heritage under the protection of UNESCO. The five villages of Cinque Terre, built on a sheer-drop coastline, can also be reached from Levanto by a short train ride or a scenic ferry boat ride.

The farmholiday is a paradise for children who find its open space the ideal place for fun and adventure; and our sweet Golden Retriever “Giro” loves to entertain our little guests.
Villanova offers:
- Tours and excursions to nearby attractions
- Hiking and walking paths
- Cooking
- Wine and olive oil tasting in the old cellar
- Conference room for approximately 15/20 people
- Family chapel for weddings, meetings, classes, workshops
- Bike rentals
- Playground
- High chairs and baby cots
- Agricultural activities (harvest of grapes and olives) and a visit to the local Co-operative to see how wine and olive oil are made
At our reception desk we will be more than happy to give you further details and information about activities and excursions.
The nearest town to Villanova is Levanto (5 minutes by car e 30 by walking), a place for fun and entertainment. Sport facilities such as boat, canoe, and windsurf rentals and two diving centers offer scuba diving excursions and certificate courses. Levanto is also famous for having one of the best coast lines in Italy for surfing. The long sandy beach has several public and private beach areas, the latter with access to a large outdoor swimming pool. In town are also two new tennis courts.
Levanto has a beautiful historical heart with many good restaurants, bars and cafés, elegant shops, and a bustling Wednesday market.
One of the most important attractions, however, is the wide choice of paths that lead from Levanto to Cinque Terre. Walkers can choose many different ways to enjoy the beautiful coastline. From Levanto to Riomaggiore, the last town of the Cinque Terre, each village along the way may become a stop or a resting point giving one an option to continue walking, or to return via train or the daily ferry boat. The ferries run from April to October; on weekends the ferries extend to Portofino and to the largest Aquarium of Europe in the harbor of Genova.
From Villanova other famous attractions that can easily be reached by train, ferry, or car are the coastal towns Portovenere, Lerici, and Tellaro of the Golf of the Poets in La Spezia, Portofino and Santa Margherita north of Levanto, and the village of Varese Ligure in the Vara Valley.
Spend a relaxing day at the Montecatini thermes, explore the marble quarries of Carrara, or visit the Lunigiana Valley with its 100 castles. The historic cities of Pisa, Genova, Lucca, and Florencecan be reached within one or two hours.
