Nice apartment and great view

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is nice and the view is amazing! It was wonderful to sit on the balcony and and look out over La Spezia. The apartment is very clean and quiet. The windows have screens on them so that you can let in the breeze. The bed is big, so bring king size sheets. We loved our stay here. Rosanna and Fulvio are wonderful hosts. They were so gracious and so helpful in answering our questions. We would stay here again. Thank you Rosanna and Fulvio!

Spacious, quiet with a lovely view

  • 5 of 5

Rosanna and Fulvio were wonderful hosts.

We were two travelers without a car. The taxi from the train station was about $15 (make sure the driver uses the meter and don't let them tell you the cost before getting in the cab). It's about 10 minutes away from the train station. There is a bus system in the city that has a stop very near their apartment. To travel to Cinque Terre take the bus down (2.50 each way) to the train station and buy a "Cinque Terre Day Pass Train" to ride unlimited on the train as well as access the hiking trails.

There is a small convenience store for bread, coffee, wine, cheese, etc. near the apartment as well. Otherwise the space is off the beaten path up in the mountains. It is quiet and peaceful. Rosanna and Fulvio were very helpful with providing maps, bus schedules, and instructions on the apartment. The bedroom was quite large, the living area was great for lounging, and the dining space was perfect-connected to a large terrace. This is the perfect place to stay if you need some time away from the touristic madness of Cinque Terre.

Spacious, tidy, stunning views gives a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

From the very first contact we were welcomed into this La Spezia property. The owners were so very helpful, and we really appreciated their friendliness. From the gates, we walked up steps to the property, and walked around it to more steps up to the front door of the property. Then up more steps to the door of the apartment. We were very pleased with the very large kitchen with lots of cupboard space, to store our groceries. Plenty of food preparation area and a very large kitchen table in the centre of the room. Ample cooking equipment for self-catering is provided, with a variety of sized pots and pans, and cooking utensils. There is also comfortable chairs to relax in. The kitchen led out to the balcony with outside furniture to sit, eat and relax looking at the views of La Spezia, and the surrounding wonderful hills, making walking up all those steps at the start very worthwhile. Good evenings were spent at night looking across as the lights came on in town, and also when a lighting storm over Pisa area lit up the sky. The bathroom with shower was good, with cabinets for toiletries. A second dining room is also provided, which also had a very large dining table, and large sofa and arm chairs. Jigsaws and games had been available to use and this was a nice thing to do after being tourists in Cinque Terre and La Spezia. This was the cooler room in the apartment and good to sit to cool off in. The spacious bedroom with large and comfortable double bed and large furniture, plenty of storage space.

After the owners knew that we were without a vehicle, they advised us of the bus that we took advantage of from the bus stop a few minutes walk from the property, to ride down the steep and winding road to La Spezia, which took about 15 minutes to reach the train station area. We were able to purchase a book of 10 single bus tickets from the train station, that made the journeys cheaper than buying individual tickets from the bus driver.

The owners were very friendly and it was a great experience to try and communicate with them - as we did not speak very good Italian and they were better at speaking English, and they asked after us, interested in where we had visited during the day. The holiday was a good one to remember, the apartment felt like home, and we are very happy to have stayed here.

Magnifique ! Un grand merci Rosanna et Fulvio

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné à Chez Rosanna et Fulvio le week-end de l'Ascension 2018 avec nos deux adolescents.

Accueil exceptionnel, vraiment chaleureux, propriétaires à l'écoute et très bienveillants.

Appartement idéalement situé pour visiter les Cinque Terre et la région.

Pour rejoindre la gare centrale et rejoindre les villages des Cinque Terre, deux solutions : la voiture en 15 minutes (parking payant sous la gare) ou le bus quasiment au pied de l'immeuble en 30 minutes.

L'appartement est très agréable, fonctionnel avec tout ce qu'il faut pour 4 personnes. La terrasse offre une vue magnifique sur le golf des poètes. Nous dormions dans la chambre et les enfants dans le salon. Nous nous servions de la grande cuisine comme pièce à vivre. Nous avons même pu diner dehors sur la terrasse.

Encore un grand merci à Rosanna et Fulvio

For those coming from the highway at the output of LA SPEZIA, take the freeway towards LA SPEZIA and continue straight (NO output Santo Stefano Magra, NO output Lerici), pass the tunnel, continue straight (NO output Lerici, Porto ), at the 5th traffic light turn left (you are now on Via Vittorio Veneto), go straight for 1 km then turn right into Via Tolone. Continue straight (always uphill) for 4 km until you reach location Sarbia. Parked in the square Andrea Costa and you're there. Distance from the exit of about 13 KM.
