Idyllic apartment overlooking the Ligurian Sea
We had a really great time in Poggio del Salice Apartment. Marco was a great host and made sure we had all the information beforehand to find his secluded apartment easily. He met us in Montaretto close to his place to show us the way and took lots of time at the apartment to explain all the attractions of the area.
The apartment is very comfortable. The well equipped kitchen has everything you need. There are spectacular uninterrupted views over the sea and we spent most evenings enjoying the sunset and the far distant lights from Genoa and the coast of Liguria and then later in the evening watching the constellation of stars that we miss so much in the city. The main room, bedroom and bathroom are all very spacious and comfortable.
One of the really great aspects of the apartment is that it is directly on some of the the best walking trails of the Cinque Terre. From the house we walked to Framura and also to Bonassola. From these towns there is also the train that connects all the towns of the Cinque Terre as well as to La Spezia and Levanto which make it very easy to get around.
The small town of Montaretto has a small bar, “Lorella” (which also serves meals) and a small friendly alimentari on the road down to the apartment, with a faded Che Guevara flag flying out the front this small shop which we returned to many times which has surprisingly everything you need.
Salice comprises of only a few houses surrounded by nature and a few farms of olives and grapes. The peace and quiet was wonderful with only sound being the birds during the day, at night the crickets and the distant sea breaking on the rocks. We enjoyed our talks with Marco and leant a lot about the area. It was very special to be at Apartment Poggio del Salice and we would love to return to enjoy this special place. Thanks Marco.
A real gem, must experience !!!
We are so happy to have found this place! It is absolutely breath taking. It was the perfect location for us to disconnect, enjoy nature and marvel at the beautiful views day and night. Marco is the perfect host, he really thought of everything ! The apartment really had everything we needed an more including the perfect terrace where we spent our evenings drinking wine and having dinner. We will definitely come back and this time for much longer than 4days!
We truly fell in love !!!
Gorgeous secluded apartment with incredible views!
We had an amazing time at Poggio del Salice! Marco was wonderful, so kind and helpful. Definitely want to have a car unless you are very passionate about backpacking. :) Apartment was lovely, very well equipped, and the views were unbelievably beautiful. Thanks so much for such a lovely stay!
Wir erinnern uns ein paar Tage nach der Abreise wehmütig an unseren Aufenthalt bei Marco. Es war wunderbar! Wer eine schöne mediterrane Wohnung mit eigener Terrasse mit herrlichem Ausblick auf die unberührten Hügel und das Mittelmeer sucht, ist hier genau richtig. Wir konnten uns an der unberührten Natur und dem immer wechselnden Blau des Mittelmeeres mit abendlichen unvergesslichen Sonnenuntergängen nicht satt sehen. Wir genossen die ruhige Atmosphäre und die Abwesenheit von Hektik und vielen Reizen. Die Wohnung ist liebevoll eingerichtet und perfekt für zwei Leute. Sie ist sehr gut ausgestattet, Marco hat an alles gedacht.
Danke Marco für den lieben Empfang, deine herzliche Art und deine hilfreichen Tips! Wir haben uns mehr als wohl gefühlt und werden definitiv wiederkommen!
Wunderschöne Lage, atemberaubende Aussicht, toll eingerichtete Wohnung, sehr sauber, liebevoll und zweckmässig. Auch die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Nichts hat gefehlt. Marco ist ein sehr freundlicher und aufmerksamer Gastgeber. Der Kontakt schon vor der Ankunft war unkompliziert und hilfreich. Bei der Ankunft wurden wir toll empfangen. Er hat uns alles gezeigt, erklärt, allerlei Tipps zum Wandern, Erkunden, Baden gegeben. Gleich auch noch das Restaurant im Dörfchen reserviert, das übrigens fantastisch gut ist. Er hat sich auch während des Aufenthalts immer wieder Zeit für einen Schwatz genommen, aber auch sehr unkompliziert reagiert, wenn wir etwas gebraucht haben, z.B. zusätzliche Leintücher. Wenn man Ruhe, Natur und das Wandern liebt ist das der perfekte Ort, das Paradies auf Erden.
Marco, molto grazie per tutto, alla prossima e tanti saluti

A hidden gem
We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Monteretto and loved the apartment. The view was spectacular, the drive down as described, rough and steep. The area is great for walking and we took the advice from Marco and had a very active holiday. Marco was a great host. The apartment was spotless, simply furnished but catered for every need. All the basics were in the kitchen and a nice touch was the milk, tea, coffee and cookies. The two downstair apartments had the plus point of having the terrace to sit on in the evening sunset and the flat upstairs the morning hours sunshine. The stone floors kept the place very cool.
We had nice chats with Marco and the other guests but never felt disturbed by anyone and had plenty of space. The flat is spacious and one is out and about in the area most of the day.
If you love the peace and quiet, being off the beaten track, love nature and hiking then this is the right place. If you are looking for beach, party and tourist attractions then less so.
Thanks Marco for the best honey ever and for the nice time.
"The Willow Tree", the place where we find ourselves, it is a handful of scattered houses which were originally used by farmers in the vineyard of the work periods. At one time the vines were everywhere here, kilometers of stone walls and vineyards as in the nearby Cinque Terre. Now most of the land is no longer cultivated and the forest is recovering its space and "The Willow" is surrounded by vineyards past, the forest and the sea. A natural charm found and returned the wild.
"The Willow Tree" is about 2 km. walk from the center of Bonassola; the trail can be covered in 30-40 minutes. The drive instead and 9 km. since the road goes round rather broad. During the summer there is a bus service from the nearby village of Montaretto Bonassola center.
The house is located on the stretch of blue-green trail (VA) between Bonassola and Framura. The blue-green path is the path that runs along the coast from the Cinque Terre in Liguria in Ventimiglia.
The Cinque Terre are easily reached by one of the many trains that stop in the neighboring towns of Framura and Bonassola.
Other paths allow you to reach beaches, coves or the lively beach in Bonassola with 30/45 minutes walk.
If you prefer longer walks, a multitude of hiking trails for all seasons awaits you.
And 'the ideal place for an active holiday in the nature.
