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.
This is a lovely little apartment. We particularly enjoyed the location - close to the main square/beach/restaurants etc, but also it felt very 'Italian', it is a very pretty and historic part of town. The apartment itself is fine (it had not been cleaned when we got there, but perhaps we had got our timing confused). There were a few minor wear and tear issues (torn shower curtain etc), but overall it is a very functional and well equipped place - we were particularly grateful for the beach umbrellas! We were 2 adults and 2 children and, although it is small, it felt fine for us for a week although it did get pretty hot in there during the evenings so I'm not sure we would have wanted to stay much longer. It has a lovely position, nestled off a small alley and overlooking a square of backyards/gardens and we enjoyed hearing the bells and some (not too many!) of the sounds of the lively nightlife. Overall, we were happy and had a lovely stay.
