Our stay in the apartment was brilliant. When we arrived we was greeted by Livio and showed the apartment. It is a massive apartment and everything was spotlessly clean and well looked after. We spent a week there and apart from the very hot weather (we managed to get the hottest week, so far this summer) everything was brilliant. Livio and Nina are a very lovely couple and we enjoyed living above them very much. When we arrived there was cold water in the fridge and a big basket of wonderful and fresh fruit and after about 4 days of our stay, Livio brought us a beautiful self-made cake, which we enjoyed very much. The village of Arcola is very quiet but if you walk over to the other part of the Village, you can find a few very good restaurants, an ice cream parlor, a supermarket, pharmacy, bakers and a few little bars where you can have a drink and enjoy the typical Italian way of life. We can only recommend this apartment, since you are quiet near to visit places like La Spezia, Sarzana, Lerici, Pisa and of course the Cinque Terre and you also have a lot of beautiful beaches within 10 minutes' drive by car.
We loved our stay in Fattoria Cristina - it was a new part of Tuscany for us and a terrific find. The apartment is neat with a splendid balcony - so we were inside very little. The pool is great and our hosts had little English but great hearts!
It is a good centre for visiting some of the interesting places around - we loved the marble quarries and then had a longer trip along the Ligurian coast north of La Spezia which was absolutely spectacular and reminded us of Highway 1 in California!
