In the heart of the historical centre of Levanto, in Via Garibaldi, lies a small charming house located on the third floor of a historic building. Surrounded by typical Ligurian Style ancient buildings, the house is embraced by the locals on this vibrant, picturesque street. The location of the house is pivotal in that it is less than a five minute walk to all the main shops and facilities, some of which include bakeries, pastry shops, butchers, pharmacies, supermarkets, laundry self-service, banks, bars, restaurants, pizzerias and of course, not to forget the beach and the train station. The wooden door of the building and the marble staircase leading up to the apartment, set in motion the beauty of the area. The vaulted ceilings lead to a bright and quiet apartment that overlook roofs, gardens and orchards, a classic italian sight. The apartment is fully furnished with both heating and air conditioning. The main room includes both a double and single sofa-bed, both of which are made of ecological wood. There is also a dining table with four chairs, a wardrobe and a bookcase with a television. The room is attached to a small kitchen which is fully equipped with gas, an electric oven, a ceramic sink and furniture including a pantry. The main room leads out to a veranda which is a prime location if you just want to relax. Leading on from the veranda is a small bathroom which includes a bathtub with a shower, a sink and a toilet.
Levanto itself has much to offer. Whether you are a morning, afternoon or evening person, Levanto has the flexibility to accommodate all desires and is sufficient enough in its attractions. Why not take a morning stroll along the promenade and order a coffee at the local beach bar and admire the morning sun rise? Or better yet, try the local Italian spritzer or aperitif just before venturing out to taste the delights of the local cuisine. When the sun sets and night time is instilled, Levanto awakens. With numerous bars, ice cream parlours and shops remaining open, you can explore the streets and relish the night time entertainment which includes stalls to buy souvenirs and local people performing various talents in the streets. The highlight of Levanto however, is its ambience. If none of the above activities interest you, Levanto is worth a visit purely for its exuberant character and spirited feeling.
I stayed in this apartment fora week in September. Apartment clean and tidy, plenty hot water. Small shower/bathroom but functional. Near, but not too near railway station. Convenient for nearby shops and market. Short walk to sea front. Helpful but non-intrusive contact in Levanto. Would recommend as alternative to economy hotel.

Opposite the house, is located a bike shop which includes rental facilities of a wide range of bicycles.

The promenade is reserved exclusively for pedestrians and bicycles and bypasses spectacular scenery of the sea, including separate areas where you can stop to gaze at the view or simply embrace a swim.
