Welcome to L'Uccelliera, the Birdhouse.
You will never want to leave this special place.
The villa, once a modest farmhouse from the 1800's, has been lovingly preserved, yet transformed into a spacious and comfortable retreat.
The lush grounds, along with the stunning views from every direction are awe inspiring.
L'Uccelliera is up hill, situated between the historical center of Monterosso and the newer part of town called Fegina.
It is this unique vantage point that allows for sweeping views like no other.
Look to the East and see of a complete view of the entire 5 Terre coastline.
Look to the West and see Punta Mesco, a large forested hill and beyond.
This position gives you a show of nature in all her glory, from the suns' first rays at sunrise, to the last glimmers of light at sunset, the views are magnificent and always changing.
There is a true 360° view of what makes up the famous 5 Terre National Park, from every direction you look, a wonder.
The private grounds of L'Uccelliera provide incomparable, vast outdoor space.
Enjoy your own private 'PARK' resplendant with cypress and pine trees, lemon, olive and fig trees, a riot of color
of flowering trees, shrubs, herbs and flowers.
