Villa Federici, the most ancient mansion in La Spezia, built in the first half of the eighteenth century, opens its gates to people who appreciate beauty. The villa is located on the first hill of Mount Santa Croce, behind the Cinque Terre hills, on the street that connects La Spezia to Portovenere and Cinque Terre.
The 180° panoramic view on the Gulf of the Poets, the Apuan Alps, the Versilia, make your stay at this historic mansion really "poetic".
Once you go through its gateway you'll find yourself immersed in the middle of a natural park, with the biggest and most ancient cedar tree in Italy.
The villa makes only a two-floor apartment available to guests in order to preserve its "poetic" atmosphere. The flat has all comforts and a minimalist design combined with the ancient parts of the mansion.
Villa Federici is situated in Fabiano Alto, about 10-15 minutes from the city centre and from the main railway station of La Spezia. Fabiano can be easily reached by car or by bus (line 23 or 21).
Being on the way to Portovenere and the Cinque Terre, the villa is particularly suited to people who want to reach these destinations.
For hikers and mountain bikers it is also possible to go to the Cinque Terre using the C.A.I. paths, going through unforgettable panoramic areas and steep sea cliffs (1 hour walk).
It is also possible to visit the nearby Apuan Alps, the white marble quarries of Carrara, the Lunigiana with its enchanting medieval villages and its hundred castles.
