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.
The villa is beautiful, has lots of features that you wouldn't expect. Has a lift to take you to bedrooms, as my son said, it feels posh. Also a fridge that makes ice by itself :)) (we don't need ice in England, so it was a surprise, something that we used a lot. Decorated with a good sense of style. Very clean and well maintained. Jacuzzi is the pick of the villa, where you can relax and enjoy the views. Vincenzo always makes sure you don't have any problems and helps a lot.
Cinque Terre is a must to see.
Thank you for a lovely holiday!
