Property for sale in Liguria is a mix of villas with sea views, Italian farmhouses and stunning seaside apartments on the Italian Riviera.
Liguria borders France to the west, Piedmont to the north, and Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany to the east. Liguria is between the sea and the Alps, a crescent shaped region from Ventimiglia in the west to La Spezia in the east; it is also one of the smallest regions in Italy.
The five colourful fishing villages of the Cinque Terre as well as stylish Portofino and Santa Margherita Ligure are on the eastern coast or Riviera di Levante. Property for sale in the Cinque Terre and on the coast of Liguria is always in demand but expect to pay more than further inland.
The western coast, the Riviera di Ponente, is home to Sanremo, a vintage resort with a turn-of-the-century casino, an international jazz festival and a flower-filled promenade. From the 18th century it has been a popular destination, known as the Italian Riviera dei Fiori (The Riviera of Flowers). It is famed for its 300 km of coastline, beautiful beaches, picturesque little towns, local colourful outdoor markets and wonderful food.
Liguria is enviably blessed in its location, climate and geography. In addition to being one of the most visited regions in Italy, the temperate climate has made it a very popular spot for second-home-owners. Liguria is a cosmopolitan place, elegant yet relaxed and enjoys an excellent road infrastructure with international airports in Genova and Nice.
An unspoilt landscape and attractive rental income are just two good reasons to consider buying property in Liguria but read on and you'll find many more.
