This must be our 7 or 8th visit to Levanto and to Michela's apartments. Michela is a lovely host and always a pleasure to meet. They are a little way into the mountains. An easy and enjoyable 1.5 kilometers to the town. The walk back is more demanding but we did it and we are over 60. Stunning views which make the walk worthwhile. There are a number of local buses which will drop you outside the apartments. Levanto offers a great place for a range of things to do. Hire bikes and cycle to the next town Bonnasola through old railway tunnels. Catch the boat along the Cinque Terre. Swimming at a variety of beaches, walking through the countryside or sitting in your favourite beach bar watching the sunset. Lots of good eating places and all very reasonable.
The town isn't just a tourist resort. It is a real lively place with bands playing in the street and locals getting on with their lives.
A well appointed house, lacking nothing and meticulously clean.
Laura and Renato are perfect hosts - friendly and helpful. We enjoyed fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden, and we learned the joys of fried zucchini blossom (thanks Laura!) We enjoyed sitting in the garden with a glass or two of local wine, listening to the birds, the sheep and the church bells.
Sesto Godano is a quiet town, and suited us perfectly. It's within easy reach of the Cinque Terre (park in Levanto and take the train). We spent a lot of time exploring the wonderful little mountain villages, away from the crowds. And the people are warm and friendly.
Recommended without reservation.
