I had been a little concerned about the heat having read one review that suggested the house was humid and would be too hot in the summer, but this was absolutely not the case and despite a wonderful 30 degrees on the beach the house was always cool and comfortable. We didn't need to use the a/c units at all as there was a pleasant breeze through the open windows. I was also a bit worried about being under the road but again there was no need, you wouldn't know it apart from the occasional friendly toot of the bus horn that we really liked. The bus was regular, started early and ran late. It's worth getting a stack of the cheap bus tickets from the tabacchi, and make sure you don't get charged for going the whole way to Portofino! The owner is delightful and helpful and even picked us up at the station and took us to the house via the supermarket, which was much appreciated. The house was well equipped and tranquil and it was impossible not to feel relaxed there. The views and light were stunning and we enjoyed the beach, the balcony and the garden as well as sitting at the fantastic metal table eating meals or relaxing on the sofas reading and chatting. It was a short walk to Portofino where we laughed at the super yachts and felt very superior with our vastly more tasteful home to return to. Make sure you get the ferry to the abbey - it is stunning. And hire a kayak! The water sports staff are helpful and friendly - we had a kayak for the day and took turns to go up and down the coast - well worth it. Thankyou Giancarla for sharing your wonderful home with us, we have all come back with great memories and look forward to returning as soon as we can. Can't think of any way in which it could be better! Best wishes, Sarah

The apartment is very well located just 15 minutes walk from the seafront. There are many cafes and shops nearby. The apartment is quite comfortable organized everything . A separate bedroom, a living room with a sofa and a mini fireplace, bathroom, kitchenette. You can cook any cuisine in the kitchen, there are lots of utensils and appliances for cooking. We always had lunch on the lovely terrace near the entrance to the house and admired the olive grove. We loved the area in the garden with sun loungers and a parasol. There we rested after lunch, read books in the shade of olive trees. It's a totally isolated area gave a sense of complete relaxation. If the day is very hot, you can take a shower outside. It is very convenient and nice! The main advantage of this apartment – the owners Alessandra and Pino. They are very attentive, kind, friendly! They were very helpful, told us how easier to get to nearest towns (Portofino, Rapallo), we were very grateful for the delicious surprises.! They helped us with everything what we was needed. We are very grateful for the attention and care! ( Friends, thank you very much for everything). We highly recommend these apartments for long stay in Santa Margherita Ligure. We will try to return to this hospitable home! Russia, Saint-Petersburg. Yury and Anna.

Situation is amazing, so close to absolutely everything. Santa Margherita is a beautiful town and all the area around is stunning. We had some lovely walks on the portofino peninsular and on other coastal areas. On the whole a wonderful stay, food in Santa Margherita is super.
