About The Experience
Casa Venere is located in the charming village of Portovenere, which is a perfect location for visiting the Cinque Terre, Lerici, Levanto, and other gems of the Ligurian coast. There are wonderful views of the Golfo dei Poeti and the Palmaria Island from the terrace.
Location Description

Located in the medieval village of Portovenere, this apartment offers a panoramic view of the Gulf of Poets, including Palmaria Island and Lerici. The main public beach of Portovenere is right across the road, and a short walk will take you to shops, restaurants, a grocery store, pharmacy, and the ferries to go to the Cinque Terre, Lerici, Palmaria Island, and Tellaro. There is also a bus stop just below the building for trips into La Spezia. Further in town is the ancient castle and fortress, dating back to the 10th century. For those who like the outdoors, there are many opportunities for hiking from the village, as well as elsewhere in the area, including the diverse and wide-ranging network of trails of the Cinque Terre. Unwind at the near beaches of L'Arenella, Royal, and L'Olivo, which welcome you with clear water and pebbly sand. There is a 9-hole golf course in Lerici, and an 18-hole course in Forte dei Marmi.

Overall:
Our visit was absolutely fabulous. The villa has everything you need during your visit.
Enjoyed Most:
The view is fantastic and the general layout of the place makes it easy and comfortable to enjoy. The owner is a delight to meet.
Enjoyed Least:
There wasn't anything that we disliked. For some people going up 3 flights of stairs might be a problem but even though we are in our 70s it was not an issue with us.
Surrounding Area:
This was walking distance to everything you needed in Portovenere. The beach was across the street and a market was easy walking distance.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We were in Portovenere and everything from a market to the boats that go to Cinque Terre were easy walking distance
Tips or Restaurants:
We ate at 2 restaurants recommended by the owner and both we good - Timone (which is very close) and 3 Torri in the town center.
Directions:
We were picked up at La Spezia Train station so didn't need directions.
Check In Out:
Very easy for us.

Overall:
Absolutely wonderful. One of the nicest places we have stayed for vacation. I hope we can return.
Enjoyed Most:
The marvelous, peaceful, always entertaining view of the sea and the boats from the property's long balcony, meals on the balcony, the town of Portovenere, the hospitality and professionalism of the owner and her representatives.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing at all to dislike about the property or Portovenere. The nearby Cinque Terre towns are beautiful, but are a tourist magnet to the point that they are very unpleasantly crowded.
Surrounding Area:
Portovenere is a perfect and unusual little town, stunningly beautiful and remarkably peaceful for a tourist destination. The short walk from the villa to the main part of town passes a nice little beach (where we enjoyed swimming), restaurants, shops, boat docks, and a little park and playground. The extremely close island of Palmeria is a really nice "extra" place to explore for a beach day or hike.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Portovenere and the island of Palmeria. The property is basically IN Portovenere. Palmeria is a 10-min boat ride from the town.
Tips or Restaurants:
Getting up early to walk around town and to its highest point is a joy. You don't really need a car. However, we cooked most nights (which was great), and while the town's little grocery store and shops are adequate, they do not have as many choices as would be available if one had a car to go to the larger grocery stores in nearby towns.
Directions:
We did not drive to the property.
Check In Out:
Everything went very smoothly and reliably.
