We stayed for 2 weeks in August in Davide and Adele's apartment. We were greeted by Davide at the apartment, who was very charming and open to assist with anything we needed. The apartment is very spacious, with a lovely large living/dining area with huge west-facing windows providing great views over the terrace to the centre of Rapallo, Santa Margherita and on to Portofino. Each day ended with beautiful sunsets over the hills beyond. Travelling regularly for business with many nights in hotels, we usually rent apartments/villas for summer holidays and we were amazed at how well equipped this apartment is - there was everything and more than we needed. The apartment is very clean and airy with some very nice pieces of antique furniture. The kitchen has everything and this leads to another terrace east-facing, for peaceful cooling off in the afternoons. With the apartment being on the 5th floor, there is a lift for access. Furthermore, being situated at the top of a typical twisting drive, there is a small funicular designed to transport 2 people at a time up and down to the road - very quaint indeed. The swimming pool is a large salt-water shaped pool, with a diving board and also a smaller children's pool. In the height of summer, we still found lots of space at the pool and it wasn't crowded in any way. The terrace around the pool gives further views south-west, over impressive super yachts to Portofino. The pool is a real sun-trap, though there is a shaded area behind trees and plenty of parasols. The pools are also attended by a lifeguard. As a service to the apartments, during summer months a restaurant down from the pool and under pine trees is a very convenient place to eat in the evening, with the food being very reasonably priced and a good concise menu offering regional dishes. It also provided with a place to enjoy the views with a glass or 2 of wine in the late afternoons. It's also convenient for refreshments by the pool during the day. Davide also offered use of their large parking garage, which was very handy when the communal parking area is full. Overall, the apartment and its surroundings are excellent. A walk just over the road outside provides a sea wall promenade for a 15 minute stroll in to Rapallo centre. Also, a 5 minute walk along the road in the direction of Rapallo is a bus stop with mostly hourly buses in to Rapallo and beyond. To summarise, we miss the apartment still! Thanks and until the next time, Davide & Adele!
We were a family of 2 parents (60 +) and 3 adult children (20 s). Communication with Daniela was excellent throughout and it was easy to locate the apartment on maps. Accommodation was as advertised: one double room, one twin room and an attic twin room well above the living room. Kitchen and all other facilities were excellent. The balcony was large enough for 5 or 6 and the view was incredible.
Our group easily walked up and down to central Camogli via roads and stairways. Buses trains boats and walks allow easy travel around the local area and there is a tourist office close to the station. We can’t recommend the apartment highly enough for this type of group.
