                                                              Excellent value for money.

                                                              As stated in previous reviews the apartment is exactly as shown in the photographs provided. However, it is necessary to point out how spacious the lounge and bedrooms actually are and above all else there is the very large surrounding terrace. To walk into town is just a few minutes and there are the narrow streets,the shops and a Variety of bars and restaurants that you would expect. The harbour is close by and there are boat trips to Portofino and the Cinque Terre area. The owner Guisy and her family were extremely welcoming and helpful, and thanks in particular go to her mother who arranged our taxi at the end of our stay. We had a excellent time in Rapallo and if we were to return we would not look anywhere else for accommodation than this property.

                                                              Beautiful setting in an excellent location

                                                              4 of 5
                                                              My wife and I organised the rental of the villa in San Michele to facilitate a family get-together. Our requirements were for a property that would accommodate 3 sets of couples, with a pool, but where the location afforded us the ability to easily visit local places of interest, of which there are many. The villa is set within an olive grove, terraced to accommodate the steep gradient. It is located above the towns of Santa Margherita Ligure and Rapallo. From this elevated position it overlooks Rapallo bay and affords extensive views of the surrounding hillsides. It has a welcome sense of privacy and seclusion, with the decor and style, the pool and the large verandah helping to create a very relaxing atmosphere. The bedrooms on the top floor are beautifully decorated with views across the olive grove and the bay. The sleeping arrangements are best suited to two adult couples with two singles/children. Whilst there is a further sitting-room and bedroom in, what is effectively the basement but with views through folding doors to the front of the property, this space obviously doesn’t have the same feel as the other bedrooms. We did find the noise of the trains passing on the local line a little disturbing, especially at night, with the bedroom windows open. With 6 adults, we did find the kitchen a little small for preparing meals, with relatively little bench space. We would recommend the walk winding up Monte di Portofino, along paths with breathtaking views of the area. The tracks are well maintained and the villages along the way are stunning. Once you arrive at Portofino, you can walk back along the road or catch a bus. Think carefully about taking children or people with reduced mobility as the gradients are steep in places. There is a restaurant, serving meals and drinks at Mulino, which, again, we would recommend. We used a combination of the local train service to Levanto, then the hop-on/hop-off boat to visit the Cinque Terra region. The return was train from La Spezia. This was a trip worth making with amazing views. The supermarket, Basko, in Rapallo, was very well stocked with car parking facilities conveniently located directly above the supermarket. Santa Margherita has a small supermarket but both towns had excellent food stores. The staff in the Information bureau in Santa Margherita were extremely helpful.

                                                              Great base for an extended stay

                                                              We decided on Rapallo as we wanted to stay in one place in Italy for one month. We were 2 couples with family/friends visiting so Casa Ledner was ideal with 3 bedrooms and plenty of space. Being walkers Casa Ledners' location made a great base (never mind the short walk uphill - think of the views) and with convenient access to the train and bus stations we could easily visit Cinque Terre and Tigullio Gulf villages. Buying local produce (and wine!) in the Rapallo market and shops, then enjoying our meals on the terrace overlooking Rapallo while the sun sets was a delight. Not forgetting aperitivos and meals in the numerous bars and restaurants. The owner, Silvio, made all arrangements and was very helpful and ensured our stay met expectations. As the property description says it has been owned by the same family for three generations - so don't expect everything to be brand new and modern - but that's the charm of Italy. (Check-out all the owners' grandfather's paintings on the walls - wonderful). Would we do it all again - definitely yes!
