perfect stay for me again and my family (19, 22, 51, 51).
Not many locations can offer, what is offered in this B&B.
Hospitality, ambiente, location, excursions and the italian food.
The perfect base camp for a trip to Liguria
Enjoy!

Lovely B&B at a quiet place about a 5 minutes ride (with car) to Lerici Port. Marc and Domenico surely invested a lot of money to make the place that beautiful. Marvelous garden with hundreds (?) of different plants and flowers, nice small swimmingpool (not heated), nice garden furniture spread though the garden. If you're looking for a place to de-stress, you should go there!
We rented the appartement that was only installed a few months ago. This appartement does not come with breakfast. It was obvious that it had not been rented out a lot because a few necessary cooking equipment was missing but luckely Marc was eager to help us out.
Marc is always around if you have any question, great service!
We will be back!

Although this charming B&B is not located exactly in Lerici, the magical gardens alone make it a perfect place to stay. Marc and Domenico (Mimmo) have done a wonderous job restoring an ancient grist mill and creating a variety of beautifully furnished guest suites and a fully furnished apartment. The suites are artfully decorated in different periods/styles, with amazing attention to detail.

We asked for the Clio room with our reservation, but would have been just as happy with Excaliber, the other suite with a balcony on the third floor. Where Clio is more antique. . . "like Grandmothers house", Excaliber is furnished from the art deco period and is just a tiny bit further from the road. Our balcony was furnished with a table and chairs for two, a lounge and an umbrella over the table. . . wonderful!

For breakfast in the chic dining room, we were treated to fresh fruit salad, assorted fresh warm rolls and bread, cereal, good yogurt, some thing sweet fresh from the bakery, and even some cheese,deli ham and salami for the meat lovers. Professionally created (by Mimmo) espresso or cappucino is also available on request. YUM!

A walk through the gardens revealed exotic and even tropical plants normally only found in other countries. Banana trees tower over a lush green lawn, while huge red poppies color the raised beds of succulents/cacti surrounding the pool. What a perfect garden for a small wedding! A plant lovers dream!

Marc and Mimmo could not have been more welcoming and accommodating! They provided a list of their favorite restaurants and places to visit, and assisted with catching the convenient bus into town (10 minutes total) and buying the boat tickets for the famous Cinque Terra ferry. Marc speaks excellent English and is always on hand to assist in any way possible.

We spent 2 wonderful nghts at La Musa and highly recommend the delicious experience to anyone visiting this area of Italy!

Room Tip: Ask to see all those available. . . each one is decorated different with great period furnishings/ar...

Pros:
- Large room. Clean bathroom.
- Balcony on the nice garden
- Very nice owners
- Good breakfast
- Parking
- Bus stop to Lerici boats for Cinque Terre in front of the hotel

Cons:
- Need to take bus from hotel to port. bus every 30 minutes. 10 minutes ride.

Overall very nice stay. The rooms are nice, but the only problem was the far away location from the port.
On the other hand, it is very difficult to find decent hotels closer to the port.....

Location may not be the best, next to the main road, but once you open the gates and are welcomed by Marc you are in another world.
Our room,'Clio' was everything we expected from the pictures on their website. HIgh quality traditional decoration and furniture. Own private balcony, looking over their fabulous garden.
Buffet breakfast was very good and excellent fresh coffee.
The owners have great plans for the future of this Guest House and we wish them all the best..

La Musa, and her proprietors, just could not have been a more wonderful experience. The great old Italian villa, the beautiful garden, the charm of Marc & Mimmo, the delicious breakfast. This is not a gorgeous 5 star hotel, this is a wonderful, charming Bed & Breakfast experience owned by interesting and fun people. And although off the beaten path, I loved hoping on the local bus to the port, taking the boat to the Cinque.Terre, hiking, taking the train then the bus back to a fabulous fish dinner in Lerici. A seasoned and savvy traveler, I definitely recommend La Musa as a lovely Italian experience.
