Amazing property

4 of 5
We had a great stay at Giancarla's extraordinary house. Fabulous position, great history to the place and in such a unique location. The house itself is very spacious, all well set up, although there is no kettle which was very unusual, I think one should be supplied. My only other comment would be that for the price we paid there should have been a mid stay clean!! We really enjoyed our stay, thank you.

Beautiful views and quiet location ideally placed to explore the Italian Riviera.

4 of 5
We loved staying at this property because we were in the heart of beautiful countryside yet close to many coastal towns. It was easy to reach Genoa and the Cinque Tere by train from Santa Margharita. Porto Fino and a variety of lovely coastal towns were within easy reach. Santa Margharita was a great place to shop for food with a good range of bakeries, greengrocers, pasta shops, fish stalls and delicatessens making self catering easy. We ate out at the local restaurant in San Lorenzo which is well worth a visit. As we arrived very late in the evening, Stephane arranged some shopping for us which was kind. The property was clean and the views outstanding. We loved the local wildlife especially the frogs singing in the evenings, the fireflies and the wild boar and piglets we spotted one night close to home. It was a little walk from the parking to the house but we were expecting that and it kept us fit. My only criticism of the property is that it is a little basic and there are only two cooking rings on the hob. If you want a dishwasher, washing machine, hairdryer or fancy kitchen equipment, it may not be for you. In you want authentic Italy, a beautiful garden with three terraces and outstanding views in the heart of the Italian Riviera, I can highly recommend this property. Many thanks Stephane.
