Villages with sea view in Lerici, get to know them and discover them


The panoramic villages located on the first hill in Lerici

The Gulf of Poets, located in eastern Liguria, is dotted with typical villages that develop both in the coastal area such as Lerici, San Terenzo, Maralunga, Fiascheino and Tellaro and on the first hills such as La Serra, Pugliola and Solaro.

While on the one hand the villages overlooking the sea allow faster access to the beaches and cliffs, on the other hand the villages located on the first hills offer breathtaking views with sea views as far as the eye can see and unforgettable sunsets.

La Serra is one of the villages located in a hilly position, a few kilometers from the center of Lerici. It is a very atmospheric place, with narrow cobbled streets and colorful houses that climb the hill.

From La Serra you can enjoy a spectacular view of the Gulf of Poets and the surrounding mountains. The village has been carefully restored and still retains the authentic and rustic atmosphere of the ancient peasant communities. Among the main attractions of La Serra are the church of San Martino with its square with panoramic views and the bell tower with the clock, which dates back to the 12th century, and a medieval fortification which dominates the hill on which the village stands.

La Serra is also a starting point for numerous excursions and treks along the paths that cross the surrounding area. In particular, the path that leads to Montemarcello, another ancient hilltop village in the area, offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the Ligurian coast.

The villages of Pugliola, located west of Lerici and La Serra, is surrounded by greenery and is an ancient and characteristic village where many tourists have decided to buy their own holiday home. Pugliola consists of a group of stone houses, arranged along narrow paved alleys and in its center is the parish church of San Giovanni Battista, dating back to the 17th century.


Located at the entrance to the village is Villa Rezzola, a historic villa dating back to the 18th century built in Baroque style. The recently restored villa is located in a panoramic position, on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Poets, and has a large park with secular trees, fountains and statues. Villa Rezzola is an example of Baroque architecture and still retains many of the original elements, such as the stucco decorations, the Ionic columns and the large marble staircase. The villa was used as a summer residence by noble and wealthy Italian and foreign lords, and hosted famous people such as the actress Eleonora Duse.

Today Villa Rezzola is open to the public thanks to the FAI and offers the possibility of visiting its gardens and some of its rooms, where it is possible to admire the original works of art and furnishings.

Another characteristic village in a hilly position is Solaro; suggestive and peaceful, it is ideal for enjoying the beauty of the surrounding nature and the panoramic view of the Gulf of Poets. It can be reached both on foot and by car, through narrow streets that wind through the olive groves and vineyards of the hill.


One of the main points of interest in Solaro is the church of San Francesco, which dates back to the 13th century and still has frescoes and ancient works of art. The village is also a starting point for numerous walks and excursions in the surrounding nature, including the path that leads to the Montemarcello hill and the one for Lerici and San Terenzo.
