About Luciana Barbagelata
I am about to describe myself hoping to give you a complete self poltrait! I am Lucia a dinamic middle age madam even though sometimes I have one’s head in the cloud. Last but not the least I always want to be up-to-date about everything!!! For example; Now I am learning english to communicate with my guests. I have to face up that it is not easy to learn it but nothing is impossible. To my guests, who loves and want discover Liguria, I prepared some guided tour in order to not miss anything! Cooking is my passion … When I cook all my senses are implicated. I am gourmand and I cook well too, my family affirm. I would like to, during this encounters, give some ligurian and italian cooking lessons to my guests …in addiction we can speak about wines thanks to my son-in-law Guido,who is very fond of them. I would like to do too many things in my life and I have a lot of ideas may be too many for my ages but I feel like I have half of them.
Why Luciana Barbagelata chose Santa Margherita Ligure
We choose to rent the third floor of our house where we grew up and which reminds us a lot of happy memories. Where we want to give the opportunities of our guests to stay and live with us in order to share our traditions, our tastes and the beauty of our region! Our house is located in the heart of Liguria in front of the Gulf Tigullio from where it is possible to reach the most beautiful touristic places of the nearby. I love my region and I think is perfect in every seasons: during autumn is warm and you can taste wine and our olive oil, during winter is calm and temperate, during spring our region is in bloom and hot is getting on the way and in summer sea and people whisperings are the attraction . In order to have a wonderful holiday you can spend some time with us so you will arrive as guests and you will depart as friends!
What makes this Apartment unique
Our house is unpretentious. It has not been built for tourists but for our family and during the years we tried to improuve it. The only thing that didn’t change is our wondreful view that you can admire from our kitchen balcony. Moreover you can relax amoung olive trees and in summer you can drink a glass of wine, some Focaccia and pizza home made thanks to our wood oven a good way to get acquainted with us! But for us the most important thing is to share our simplicity and openness with you all!

Fantastic 5 days at Grandma’s House
From the moment Lucia picked us up in Rapallo and helped with the shopping, I knew this stay would be magical. She provided recommendations on things to see and how to catch the bus. We had a lovely evening making pizza and focaccia. Giulia and Guido we’re kind and it truly felt like a family dinner with great food! We saw beautiful sunrises from the balcony and enjoyed our morning coffee or evening wine from these seats. Don’t forget to walk up to San Lorenzo square and admire the beautiful church. Bus transport is inexpensive and convenient. We loved our holiday with Lucia and family.
Lovely stay at Grandmother's House
Spotlessly clean house in a lovely location. It is tucked away from the hustle and bustle with easy access to some beautiful places.........Camogli, Portofino, Santa Margherita to name but a few. We had a wonderful time exploring by car, boat and on foot. Lucia, Giulia and Guido made us feel so welcome and are a lovely family.
Live like an Italian
We arrived here for four nights at the tail end of two weeks in Italy. This home is at the very top of the hill so you have views in every direction. We loved sitting out on the tiny terrace off the kitchen watching the view and the neighborhood. Everyone was very friendly and there was always something to see. We had a little trouble with the Internet one night and the owners quickly arrived with a very nice bottle of chilled prosecco and two chilled glasses. We enjoyed that very much and no longer cared about the Internet. If you want the experience of living like a local, this is the place.
Wonderful owners and place
We had a great stay at Grandmothers House. There is AC in the bedrooms if you need it and you can close the outside shutters so it is nice and quiet and dark. A great place to explore Portofino and Cinque Terre. We walked into Santa Margherita Ligure which was a nice walk but I would recommend the bus on the way back as it is all up hill. We did the cooking class and dinner which was so good. Not only was the food excellent but having dinner with Lucia, Guila & Guido was so much fun. They are such nice genuine people. Duna the dog was friendly as well. We made the Ligurian pasta with pesto, green beans and potatoes, totally recommended!!
Wonderful hosts and location
A wonderful place to stay when visiting the region. A good central location between Portofino and the Cinque Terre. The hosts were extremely helpful and supportive during the stay. I would recommend it highly .
