About The Experience
Located in Rapallo on the coast of the Italian Riviera, this rental apartment on the waterfront is available either by itself or with a wonderful vintage yacht with skipper and chef for touring the coast of Liguria, including Portofino and the Cinque Terre. For those looking for a seaside and in-town experience, this apartment in a villa in Liguria, Italy, is the perfect choice.
Location Description

This property is located on the seafront in the coastal town of Rapallo, which has been a well known resort since the 19th century. There are many restaurants, cafes, bars, and nightlife activities nearby. Passenger ferries connect Rapallo with Santa Margherita, Portofino, Punta Chiappa, San Fruttuoso, Camogli, Cinque Terre, and Portovenere (timetables vary according to season). The town of Rapallo is located on the main Genoa-Rome train line, which runs through the Cinque Terre, and the railway station is only 10 minutes away from the apartment by foot. Genoa, purported birthplace of Christopher Columbus, is recently experiencing a revival in popularity. UNESCO has added the city to its list of World Heritage Sites because of its numerous palazzi. There is also a cathedral, the second-largest aquarium in the world, and an opera house. Genoa's most famous landmark is its medieval gates, flanked by two crenelated towers.

Nearby Attractions: The mild climate of the Rapallo area allows for year-round sports activities. There are water sports, tennis, horseback riding, hiking, and golf nearby. Scooter and bicycle rentals are available in the town of Rapallo. There are several paid beaches and a free beach very close to the villa. The paid beaches have life guards.

(50 m2 of terraces and balconies) The charming apartment was built in the 1920's and has since been lovingly restored, inside and the terrace, by the owners while still maintaining its original layout and character. The apartment offers spectacular views of the Tigullio bay and the Portofino promontory from the terrace and balconies. There is a large terrace off the dining room, a balcony off the kitchen, and a balcony off the living room. A small park is located nearby with playground equipment for children. Parking is possible on the street in front of the property, if spaces are available. The exterior of the building, maintained by the condo association, is in need of repair/restoration. The owners have no control over when that will take place.

Overall:
Overall we really enjoyed our last week in Rapallo (our 4th week in Italy.) It was a lot noisier than our location in Chiavari. Scooters, cars and trucks just outside. The owners were wonderful. They live in Milan, but greeted us the day we arrived and walked us into town showing us places to eat and buy food. They provided daily maid service and gave us their phone numbers in the event we had any issues or questions. A bottle of Prosecco in the fridge was a nice touch as were the coffee, tea and snacks.
Enjoyed Most:
The location is the selling point. The walk into town was only a few minutes and we were within driving distance of a lot of beautiful sea towns. Fantastic eating and shopping for food to prepare in the apartment. The kitchen was basic, but very usable.
Enjoyed Least:
The owners have made some improvements over time (the apartment belonged to a deceased mother), but now the exterior needs work (the owners mentioned that the condo association plans to address it soon).
Surrounding Area:
The surrounding area is beautiful and very walkable.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The center of Rapallo is about a ten-minute walk, longer when one stops for an espresso.
Directions:
Used my handheld Garmin GPS into which I had put the address. Streets are tricky (like most of Italy) due to poor signage.
Check In Out:
No. The owners made the process very easy and made sure that we were able to park. Parking is at a hotel which was about a 15-minute walk.
