Villa Giulia: A rented appartment
We stayed 4 times at Villa Giulia.
It is definitively the best location in Lignano because :
- all the appartments are facing the sea
- it is the cheapest location : in July 2011, 690€/week for a 3 room appartment
- it is close to the city center
- the supermarket (Mare +) and the bakery for the breakfirst are nearby
- there is a free parking included (but pay attention to the resin which falls on the car from the pine trees)
- it is possible to be connected to the WiFi of the beach when we are on the balcony.
- the best appartment is the 4 at the 2nd (US) floor because it has an added balcony on the side which is practical to dry the laundry and from the main balcony we can completly see the beach which is not hidden by the trees.
Unfortunatly, the Villa Giulia is no longer rented because it is sold . But you can find for roughly the same price an appartment in the buidling nearby : Villa Anka and Villa Alba.

Rented appartment (affitanze): The best place to stay
We went 6 times (now 9 times) to spend our Summer vacation in Lignano. In August 2008, I thought we will come back frequently and I decided to find the best place to stay. My analysis does not fully apply to hotels because we always choose a rented appartment.
Naturally, it is based on personal criteria.
First of all, we decide to stay at Sabbiadoro because the day and the night lifes are mainly there. In addition, in the Riviera and Pineta, there are moskitos.
Then, we search a place :
- facing the sea
- close to the pedestrian street but not directly on it because it is too noisy at night
- near the food stores and especially a baker selling pastries for the breakfast.
We avoid the North part of the peninsula which is the oldest of the town and which is too croudy.
My conclusion was to always rent an appartment Lungomare Trieste from number 80 to 100.
There are several buildings which match our request :
- 80 : San Giovanni (to avoid if you don't like the ringing bells of the near church)
- 82 : Nido del Gabbiano
- 88 : Residenza Eva
- 92 : Condominio Alba
- 94 : Villa Anka
- 96 : Villa Giulia (no longer rented in 2013)
- 98 : I Pioppi
- 100 : Residenza Lungomare Sabbiadoro
All have a parking lot (the parking is an issue in Lignano) and comfortable appartments (1 to 3 bedrooms) with balconies facing the beach.
The major real estate agencies are on this part : Anny, Teghil, Marina, Intras, Ietri, Eureka, Lignano Mare.

Condominio San Giovanni: A 3 room appartment
For our 2007 vacation (30 June - 14 July) we chose the same accomodation than in 2005 but with 3 rooms instead of 2 because my mother in law ( a cordon bleu) was with us.
The real estate agency ANNY is well organised and able to supply a good service. So we rented through it as in 2005.
We were disapointed to not get a appartment fronting the sea in spite we organized our vacation in December for July. So we got an appartement on the back yard fronting Via Vicenza and il Parco San Giovanni.
The appartement has a large living room with a sofa bed (for 2) , 2 bed rooms (1 with a queen bed - 1 with 2 single beds) and a kitchenet (angolo cottura). It is possible for 6 persons (including some children) to stay. There are 2 balconies : a large one from the living room to the main bed room and the other one, smaller, attached to the second bed room.
The appartment is well and newly furnished, fitted out in ustansiles, clean and comfortable. A washing machine is included in the kitchen and there is a large fridge with freezing compartment.
The TV in the living room provides only Italian and German channels but it was not a concern because we understood Italian and we had a small DVD recorder.
The only defects are : lack of elevator in the Stair A (not a concern on a daily basis, only to carry the luggages at the arrival and at the departure), the parking is too small, some noisy performances are organized on the neighbor place.
For two weeks : 1550 euros including an umbrella and 2 deck beds on the beach at the 11e rank worthing 144.50 euros (prices are increasing yearly by 3/5 pct).
The neigbor buildings (NIDO DEL GABIANO) is also rented by Agenzia ANNY and is cheaper but they told me it is also less comfortable and smaller.

HOTEL COLUMBUS: HOTEL NEAR THE BEACH
We stayed in Hotel Columbus during our late summer holidays in Sept 2005. It was the low season and there were not many holiday-makers and tourists around. So we managed to get a double room with balcony facing the sea. We had a great view of the long stretch of beach and the ocean. Our room was large and clean; we had a double bed, the usual table and chairs, clean bathroom, in-room safe, and deck furnitures out on the balcony.
Nice and friendly staffs; Restaurant and bar. Swimming pool (medium size one on othe ground floor facing the beach/sea). Clean large rooms and bathrooms. Elevators. Parking facility in basement garage.

When staying in Lignano, don't be taken advantage of by the expensive hotel rates. If you are staying for a week or longer, try to arrange the rental of an apartment. The savings can be a hundred euros or more, and the accomodations equally as nice. There are several rental agencies who operate in Lignano; I have listed some recommended websites below:
Be aware that you will need to leave a deposit in case of damage (standard practise) and often will have to pay an additional fee for housekeeping, though you may be able to negotiate this.

Condominio San Giovanni: Appartment on a weekly basis
We rented an appartment for a week (from Saturday to Saturday) which matched our requests :
- along the sea side
- with a balcony to enjoy the view of the beach
- two rooms (bilocale) in order to have space (1bed room + a living room with a sofa bed)
- with a kitchenet
- with the TV (we understand Italian)
- with a parking : the car park is a real issue in Lignano.
The price : 507euros (last week of June).
Deposit : 100 euros (paid back if no problem).
Cleaning : 35 euros (except if you do it yourself).
For the this price we got a free place on the beach, in front of the building (+ 1 umbrella & 2 deckchairs). Regular cost : 60/70 euros.
The appartment is located near the center of Lignano, with everything nearby : supermarket, shops, pedestrian streets, free entertainements, baker just 2 min walk (to buy fresh panini for the breakfast), lot of gelateria and restaurants nearby.
We were not disturbed by the noise though there were nearby the Pronto Soccorso (medical emergency) and the church with its bell.
Why the Italian appartments always forget the frypan ? It does not matter, we bring our own one.
No electric coffee marker too. But it is not a concern because we made a good Italian coffee with a caffeteria Italiana on the gas.
Our appartment : nr 26 (3e floor on US basis).
Real estate agency : Anny.
Location of the appartment : 20 via San Giovanni.

The street at the beach: Free of charge
Just a quiet street where you can park your car for free. Across the street the beach starts, so you can go for an early swim in the morning.
The beachside has free toilet and you can take a shower there. Not very clean though...

Hotel Internazionale: Appartment in a hotel
We had an appartment of 2 rooms + kitchen + bath in this building which was independant from the hotel it self.
Price : 473 euros for a week.
A concern : the agency refuses the cards.
A balcony with view on the sea.
Just a street to cross to have an access to the beach.
A supermarket nearby
Surrounded by shops and restaurants
A private parking
