Customer Reviews

Overall:
We absolutely LOVED our stay! The view and the apartment are outstanding.
Enjoyed Most:
The view and location. Easy to walk to town for eating and touring the Cinque Terre. We loved having our coffee every morning and wine in the evening on the deck while watching the boats come in an out of the harbor. It was so difficult to leave at the end of our stay! Also, the beds were comfortable and many choices for making coffee. We had everything we needed.
Enjoyed Least:
The small bathroom didn't have much counter space, but it didn't really ruin our stay.
Surrounding Area:
We took the boat to the Cinque Terre towns several times to hike and eat. Also, the town of Portovenere is charming with many excellent places to eat. We also hired the owner's son to take us wine tasting. Really enjoyed the winery as well us our lunch with him.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Portovenere is the nearest town. An easy 5 minute walk from the apartment.
Tips or Restaurants:
The only thing I'd mention is there are two flights of stairs leading up to the apartment entrance and several more to the unit itself. Not a problem for us, but if mobility is an issue might be important to know. We ate at all the restaurants the owner Roberta recommended. They were all delicious. We stay with the local cuisine of the area, which is seafood. Also, tried the local pesto. Excellent! I'm gluten intolerant and all the restaurants were very accommodating. One restaurant in Corniglia even ran across the street to buy gluten-free pasta. It turned out to be the best meal I had in the Cinque Terre.
Directions:
We hired a driver to pick us up at the airport. The owner Roberta actually picked us up. She is lovely. Not only did she pick us up, but she took us to the grocery store.

Catherine, May
