About Sylvia Cox

I-m an English widow who has lived in Italyfor 40 years mostly in Florence

but I love to come to Camogli and share it family and friends. I grew up in

Scotland and married my New Yorker husband in Italy in 1979. We had an

export business and worked with companies from all over the world. I am now

retired and enjoy reading, the theater, hill walking, travelling and the New York

Times crossword.

Sylvia Cox purchased this apartment in 1974

Why Sylvia Cox chose Camogli

Camogli is one of the most beautiful if not the most beautiful fishing village

in Itally with its painted houses, and harbour . It is a real gem and many

Italians from other regions don-t know about it. It is 20 kms from Genoa which

is a big bustling port city with an enchanting old town of narrow streets and

Renaissance palaces . It was one of the richest cities in Italy in the 15 century

and you still see many traces of its former grandeur.

What makes this apartment unique

Relatively unknown to mass tourism, beautiful walks in the area, delicious

regional dishes such as pesto and farinata and of course all sorts of fish.

Genoa, Portofino and other towns are within easy reach by train, bus, car

or ferry, and the climate is mild / no 40 degree summers here because of

its position near the sea and the mountains behind.

Delightful Camogli

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Camogli in the last 2 weeks of August.Camogli is a delightful place, not too busy given the time of year, friendly people, great food and a beautiful area. The apartment was as advertised and perfect for our family of 5. A couple of things to take note off. The apartment is in the top floor of the block and does get very hot in the evenings. There are plenty of fans but no a/c so sleeping was difficult on a few occassions. Also, beware the €60 'cleaning fee'. We felt this was very steep and, while it is mentioned on line, there was no mention in the booking confirmation or pre-booking communication. We left the apartment spotless and even washed and dried the towels, so somebody is doing well out of this.

This aside, we were delighted with both Sylvia and Elaine who met us at the apartment and we are already looking forward to visiting Camogli again.

lovely spacious property, well equipped and very convenient location for town and beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in Camogli. The stretch of coast is stunning, and the town very pretty. You dont need a car as only 10 mins walk into town with supermarket, and another 5 mins to the beach and harbour. Public transport excellent. But be warned it is a very steep walk! Plenty of places to eat and enjoy ice creams. Boat trips along the coast are a must.

The local contact was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

The appartment was lovely and cool despite the heat, and very well equipped. The roof terrace was a treat, especially watching the sun set in the evening.

The kitchen was rather small and warm, but very well equipped. The swimming pool was fantastic, and the whole area seemed quiet, even at the end of July.

I am sure we will return.

Exactly as described in the details. Very pleasant.

Property is simply furnished and the kitchen is rather small but we needn't nothing more and we still catered for a family of five.

Happy days in Camogli

  • 5 of 5

There were just two of us and it was a very spacious and airy apartment for us, equipped with everything we needed. We had a lovely stay in Camogli, and in this apartment. Breakfast and evening drink on the balcony a special treat. We enjoyed the built-in exercise of climbing up from the town but it might have been challenging for some. (We counted 120 steps!) The owner's contact person in Camogli was most helpful, answering immediately our every query! Camogli a charming and historic small town with good connections by public transport to other interesting and beautiful places.

Gut gelegen, hübsche Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Wohnung zu viert für eine Woche belegt und sind rundum zufrieden gewesen damit. Da das Wetter ausserordentlich schön war, haben wir meist nur den Morgen und späteren Abend darin verbracht. Da hat es aber meist auch noch für einen Kaffee auf der Dachterasse gereicht, welche einen schönen Blick in die Umgebung freigibt. Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir begrüsst und es wurde uns alles erklärt. Die Wohnung war sauber und alles hat funktioniert. Ruhig gelegen und nahe dem Ortszentrum. Sehr empfehlenswert.

Owner's Response: Thank you Martin. It was a great pleasure to have you and your family. My appartment is set up for families - the swimming pool is ideal for young children a nd the roof terrace is a delightful place to take evening glasses of prosecco with the sun setting. Camogli is the prettiest place on the Italian Riviera and Portofino Santa Margherita and Genoa are only a short diistance. Public transport (buses, trains and ferry boats) are excellent so you can leave your car in the garage provided throughout your stay.
